Releasing Miracle Power


Do you know that the miracle power of God dwells in you if you are a born again believer?  Imagine… the Miracle Power of God!   You say, “Bro. Dick, if I’ve got it where is it?  I don’t see miracles in my life, and I sure don’t feel very powerful.”

What I want to share with you from the Word of God is how to get that miracle power operating in your home, in your business, in your prayer life, and in every nook and cranny of your total existence. 

The first step, the first key, to unlocking this miracle power is realizing that it is actually there. 

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 2Cor 5:17 

          This is the first step, the basis, the foundation;  this is where we begin as we realize and understand that we are new creations in Christ.  We are not natural, we are supernatural.  We are not carnal, we are spiritual. 

          Who is this “real you?”  What is this “real you” like?  What is this “real you” capable of?  When I look in the mirror, what  and who I see is not the real Dick Braswell.  Oh, the real Dick Braswell is something else!  No grey hair.  No wrinkled face.  Young.  Handsome.  Big muscles.  A Mighty Man!  Devils tremble when he walks into their presence.  He is a perfect man.  He looks like God.  He talks like God.  He acts like God and when he walks into the room the devil thinks that God has arrived.  That, friend, is the REAL ME.  The real me is not getting older, he is getting better.  The real me will never die.  The real me is the New Creation Man. 

Understanding this truth is absolute basic to releasing Miracle Power.  It is necessary for you to get this in your spirit.  You must know that the person that is really you is a New Creation in Christ; a new man who is made in the image of God.   A new man who is perfect and complete.  A new man with powerful forces inside that is literally straining to get out.  There are energies and powers inside of the New Creation Man that are just waiting to be released.  When these forces are released that are contained inside your spirit you become a Miracle Worker. 

The seed for the supernatural is inside of you right now.  The potential to produce the impossible is in you at this very moment!  It doesn’t matter how old you are or how young you are.  It doesn’t matter if you are a man or a woman.  Race, culture, personality, demeanor, or environment does not matter.  Miracle working power and God-authority resides in you today.

Let’s consider four forces that operate in the recreated human spirit.  They are zoe (the God-kind of life); dunamis (the ability or power of God); exousia (the authority of God); and the rhema (the revealed Word of God).  Here are Life, Power, Authority and Word and they are all inside of you right now.  When you  learn how to release these forces you are enabled to release Miracle Power. 

When you were born again, these forces were born inside of you.  And something else happened.  You came under the authority and operating principle of a New Law.  You instantly were placed under the Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus and that Law nullified the Law of Sin and Death!

For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.  Rom 8:2

          Natural Man (carnal man) as well as the natural world, all is controlled by the Law of Sin and Death.  The NEW MAN (spiritual man… those who are born again) lives by the Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus.  However, no law is any good unless there is a power behind it that can enforce it.   You can talk about that law.  You can legislate that law.  You can enact that law and document it.  But if it does not have force and power behind it, it is no good; it’s not worth the paper it is written on.

The Law of Life

          Every society that succeeds must have laws that govern it.  However, those laws are ineffective and invalid if they are not enforced by some Authority and Power.  Laws are enforced by police, by state troopers, the national guard and other governing agencies that have been given authority and power to see that those laws are kept and honored.  And if those under that law are do not obey and comply, they will face certain unpleasant consequences. 

The Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus is enforced by the four powers that operate in the recreated human spirit:  Life, Power, Authority and the Word of God.  These forces activate the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus.  

You are not helpless.  You are not weak.  You are not insecure. You are not alienated.  In fact, you are a Joint Heir with Christ.

And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint–heirs with Christ…  Ro 8:17  

          God has bequeathed to you the ability to activate and release miracle working power.  He had given you the power to enforce the Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ and to receive and enjoy victorious, successful Christian living.  When you activate and operate the forces within you will conquer every devil and overcome every obstacle.  You will be enabled to live under the control of the Law of Life.  You can resist sickness and disease.  You will overcome fear and discouragement.  You will win every battle and defeat every enemy.  You will experience Life as the head and not the tail, as above only and not beneath, as the strong and not the weak, as the well and not the sick, as the rich and not the poor, and as more that a conqueror in every circumstance and situation the devil may send your way.  You will be an Overcomer!  And the powers of darkness will fear and tremble in your presence!!

Decide to Change

          The first thing to do in order to release miracle power and Live by the Law of the Spirit of Life, is simply to decide to do something about your present situation.  If you are unhappy with where you are and what the devil has done to you, then decide right now to do something about it!

Everything you have ever done has been the result of a decision you made.  Decide to get mad at the devil and to put a stop to his tormenting tactics.  Tell him where to go and command him to leave you alone.  Vent your anger toward him because you know what he is trying to do.  He is determined to destroy you, steal from you and kill every dream you have.  Decide.  Do something.  Don’t sit where you are until you die.  (2Kings 7:3). 

If you don’t like what is happening to you, change it!  You are not a victim of your circumstances.  You are a victim of your own indecision.  Decide to get out from under the devil’s attacks.  Release those miracle forces that are inside you.  Decide to activate the power of the Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus under which you are now living.  Decide to make miracles happen!

Wouldn’t it be great to not be sick?  Or not to suffer from depression and stress?  Or be plagued with worry and dread?  Or overcome by carnal habits and desires?  Then decide to do something about it!  You can and you should. 

Believe God’s Word

          Believe the Bible.  Doubt your doubts and question your questions but believe the Word of God.  Doubt your symptoms and doubt your feelings but believe the Word.  Doubt your reasoning and your assumptions; doubt everything you see and feel in the natural but never doubt the Word of God.  Heaven and earth will pass away and so will all the natural news media, but God’s Word will last forever.  God’s Word is true and changeless and  it  always will be.  Establish this fact in your heart and mind. 

Thank God for the Word!  Thank God for His love and grace!  Thank God for His promises!  As long as you fail to take the Word of God seriously and are satisfied to stay stuck where you are, you will not be able to release Miracle Power. 

However, when you really believe God will your whole heart… with everything that is deep inside you, when you believe it all the time, twenty four hours a day, seven days a week, fifty-two weeks a year and all the years of your life; when you get up in the morning and declare:  “I believe the Word this morning, I’ll believe it at noon and in the evening; I’ll believe the Word tonight and every time and all the time…”  When you believe on that level, that’s when you are enabled to release Miracle Power!

Renew Your Mind

          So now, you have made a decision to do something.  And you are really believing the Word.   It’s time now to renew you mind.  You are going to move into the place where your mind thinks like the Bible.  You determine to think right.  When you think right, you will  think in line with the Word. The problem is you will more than likely have to reject about 95 percent of the stuff you have believed in the past.  Most of us have been conditioned to live by reasoning, intellect and facts. 

Human reasoning and natural facts will never change.  Intellect would have you believe that facts are right and that facts are real and unchangeable.  But if “it” (facts or assumptions, or previously learned stuff) is not in the Word and in agreement with the Word, it is a lie. 

I don’t (nor you either) have to believe anything that is a lie.  We can “cast down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God.”  (2Cor  10:5)  I do not have to allow  anything in my mind that does not agree with God’s Word.  If a lie tries to get in, we can take authority over it and cast it down… refuse it.  We do not have to entertain information that disagrees with the Word.  A renewed mind (one that has been “washed” by the water of the Word) will discern what is the truth and what is a lie.  A mind that is saturated with Truth will detect any lie immediately.  A renewed mind is one that has been reprogrammed by God’s Word. 

          We will deter and prevent our mind from being renewed if we are ignorant of the Word of God.  A mind that is not renewed (“lack of knowledge”) will cause destruction and defeat.

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge…  Ho 4:6 

Refuse Compromise

          We all have many opportunities to compromise.   Compromise is interpreting the Word by your circumstances.  Compromise is judging the Word by the world.  The Truth is judging the world (and your circumstances) by the Word.  If your situation does not agree with the Word, you need to change your situation.  Refuse to accept any alternative to what the Word says or decrees.  If you do not understand what is happening or why it is happening, believe the Word.  Instead of questioning God, question your situation.  Analyze the problem, not the Word.  Speak to the problem instead of being upset with the result.  Change the problem by attacking it with the Truth.  Every lie must bow and give in to the Truth.

Stick with the Bible.  Never back down.  Refuse to compromise.  Resist the temptation to ease up or let up.  Keep the pressure on the devil.  When you use the Word as your weapon, you are guaranteed success and victory.  The battle is the Lord’s and the Victory is ours.  If your situation or circumstance does not agree with the Word, it is obvious that it is in agreement with the devil.   Since the Truth is the opposite of the lie… when Satan says we will die (a lie),  then we are certainly going to live (the Truth)

Cooperate With God

          Agree with God and God’s Word.  Search for and discover what God wants for you and then line up your wants with His Wants.

Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdomLu 12:32 

          God wants to give us the Kingdom.  If He wants to give me the kingdom, then that’s what I want to get.  I’m going to line up my desires with God’s desires and so there will be two in agreement.  The Word promises that where there are two in agreement on earth as touching anything… It shall be done.

Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. Mat 18:19 

I had much rather agree with God that with the devil,  hadn’t you?  I’d rather agree with God than with NBC or CNN or the newspaper, hadn’t you?  I had rather agree with God than agree with how I feel or what I see or what I think.  Therefore, I am going to cooperate with God and set my desires in line with Him and what He wants. 

Since He wants me to be well instead of sick, I want to be well, too.  And I’m going to be will because that is what God wants for me.  God wants all of my needs to be met.  Since He wants all my needs to be met, I want them met as well.  Therefore, all my needs will be met today according to His riches in glory  (Phil 4:19).  All my bills are paid.  All my debts are cancelled.  I have more than enough and lots left over.

I will walk in the high places of the earth and will always be the lender and not the borrower.  I know that the wealth of the sinner has been laid up for me and my seed (Prov 13:22).  I am cooperating with God and in total agreement with Him.  Hallelujah.

Frame the Word

          Frame Word in your heart.  In Hebrews, the Word says: “the worlds were framed by the Word of God.”   (Heb 11:3)  Also in Hebrews, the Bible declares:  “faith is the substance of things hoped for…” (Heb 11:1) 

Before God spoke the worlds into existence He had a mental picture or image what they would be like.  The “frame” of His faith was inside Him and He opened His mouth and spoke the Word by faith, the worlds were created.  He had “framed” that in His heart before He spoke it with His mouth. 

Hope is the “framework” that creates our “faith image” or picture of what we are believing for.  Frame the Word in your heart.  Picture yourself as you are pictured in the Word.  Do not see yourself as weak.  Or sick.  Or poor.  Or depressed.    Instead, see yourself as God sees you and as the Word says you are.  God’s does not see “an old sinner saved by Grace…”  He doesn’t see some poor saint crawling, hanging on by his fingernails, trying desperately to get to glory.  When He sees you, He sees Jesus!  You are in the process of being conformed into His exact Image and God sees the “finished product.”  You need to see yourself that way as well.  See yourself healed and not sick.  See yourself successful and out of debt.  See yourself living and not dying.  Frame God’s Word and what It says in your heart. 

Have you been believing for something for a long time?  I want you to frame that thing in your spirit right now.  I want you to see it with your faith eyes.  Faith has eyes.  We walk by faith and not by sight (2Cor 5:7).  Frame that picture of what God can make you.  Frame that picture of what you are believing for God to bring you into.  See that with your faith eyes as it is framed in your inner man. 

Carry your picture with you wherever you go.  The Word says that this is your hope of things not seen (in the natural) and this is the foundation for your faith.  Before long, what you see is what you will get!  Frame it.  See it.  And soon you will have it.

Say What God Says

          Don’t talk about your problem.  Don’t talk about your weakness.  Don’t talk about your symptoms.  Don’t talk about “how long it’s been.”  Don’t talk about what others are saying or what they have said.  Don’t talk about what happened twenty years ago when all hell broke loose.  Don’t talk negatively.  Don’t talk doubt.   Don’t talk pessimistically.  Instead, talk the Word.  Say what God says.  Control your tongue and speak the Word.

The Bible says the Word is “nigh” or near you and even in your mouth… (Rom10:8)  When your friends see you coming they ought to say,  “My Lord! Here comes the Bible.”  The only thing that distinguishes you from the Word is that you haven’t got black leather covers all around you. 

Don’t talk to God about your problems (He knows about them already), talk to your problems about God.  Don’t tell others how bad things are, tell the bad things how great God is.  What does the Word say about the situation?  That’s really all that matters anyway.  If something tries to come out of your mouth that’s not Word, slap yourself and tell yourself to shut up. 

          Words you speak will either generate life or bring about death.  Words are seeds.  What you say is what you sow  What you sow is what you grow.  What you grow is what you get.  What you get is either life or death. 

Death and life are in the power of the tongue…  Pr 18:21 

Resist All Else

          Actively resist anything and everything that is not in agreement with the Word of God.  If it contradicts or disagrees with the Word, cast it off.  If the devil comes in to unload his lies on you tell him, “No thank you, devil, you can’t deliver your lies here.  It does not belong to me because I am a New Creation in Christ.  Inside of me there resides the Life of God, the Power of God, the Authority of God and the Word of God.”

“I am living by the Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus.  You cannot unload your trash at my house and you can’t put it on my children or my finances.  Go on down the

road and find somebody who is not as smart as I am…”

Stay Mad at the Devil

          Get mad and stay mad at the devil.  Talk to him.  Command him.  Boss him around.  Sit him down and have a Bible study with him.  Make him do what you say.  Torment him like Jesus did (Mat 8:29).  Make him plead with you to leave him alone.  Yell at him.  Scream at him.  Shake the Bible in his face.  You are probably asking:  “What will the neighbors think?  How will they feel about this?”  Well, they are more than likely thinking it already.  That could be why the house near you is up for sale!  Just get mad at the devil.  Don’t be nice to him… he’s surely not nice to you or to anybody else. 

Jesus said that the works He did we would do also and even greater works (John 14:12).  When you confront demons they ought to react to you just like they did to Jesus.  You have the Life, the Power, the Authority and the Word of God to make the devil submit to you.

Rejoice

          Keep your heart filled with thanksgiving and praise at all times and in all situations.  Don’t give in to depression and  heaviness.  Don’t surrender to sadness and worry.  Above never fall into the trap of self-pity.  Don’t feel sorry for yourself.  Don’t gripe and complain.  Remember all fear and worry disgraces every promise of God.

If anybody has a right to shout and rejoice, you do.  You have no right to doubt and grumble and live in depression.  Praise God all the time.  Live in the atmosphere of joy and gladness.  Sing and dance.  Clap your hands and give honor and praise to God.  March and run and jump if you have to.  It doesn’t embarrass God if you get a little radical.  It will terrify the devil and all the demons he sends your way. 

You can release Miracle Power.  Miracle Power is right inside you and it’s inside you right now.  I challenge you to follow these simple instructions and begin to make miracles happen all around you, your family, your business, your finances, and your neighborhood. 

God has given you His Life, His Power, His Authority, and His Word.  He has deposited these life-changing forces inside of every believer.  Now, it is up to YOU to release this MIRACLE POWER and the time for you to begin releasing it is RIGHT NOW!!
