Power to Do the Extraordinary

Series: Summer Road Trip | Week 4: Fill Up Before You Go

Read Acts 19:11-12 in your personal Bible or at the link provided.

1. Who gave Paul power?
2. What kind of miracles did Paul perform?
3. How were peoples’ lives impacted when they encountered him?

In many of the places Paul traveled, dark magic and demonic activity ran rampant. The power that Paul healed with wasn’t for his glory, it was to show how strong his God was to a culture that needed to see the extraordinary to believe. Paul not only used his gifts wherever he traveled, he let the power of God flow through him, and many people came to faith as a result.

Wherever we find ourselves, we’ve been given gifts to serve others and to act on God’s behalf. His power may not manifest itself through us like Paul, but it will allow us to do extraordinary things for Him, even in seemingly small tasks. There are no menial tasks in the work of the Lord. When we let God speak through our service and words, we can see Him work in mighty ways.

Do you believe God could do extraordinary things through you? How do you currently serve Him or use your gifts? Have those things become routine? Are you open to letting Him give you His power to do the extraordinary within your ordinary rhythms?

Based on what you just read, what do you think God is prompting you to do in response? Write it down, share it with a friend, and take a step to start making it happen. Be sure to set your alarm for 12:12 pm to join us for prayer and fasting this week (more info below).
