The Power of God

How You Can Tap Into It

by Pastor John Hamel


"And it came to pass on a certain day, as he was teaching, that there were Pharisees and doctors of the law sitting by, which were come out of every town of Galilee, and Judea, and Jerusalem: and the power of the Lord was present to heal them." (Luke 5:17)


The Bible reveals that God loves all people so much that Heís even willing to heal His enemies.  Thatís right.  God does not even want His enemies to be sick. 


In the text that you just read there were Pharisees and doctors of the law present one day when Jesus was teaching the Bible.  The majority of these individuals were Jesusí enemies.  They were there to find fault with Him.  They were not there for any other reason except to cause trouble


Yet, the Bible says, ďThe power of the Lord was present to heal them.Ē  


Of course, none of them did receive healing that day.  The reason for that was they did not know how to take advantage of the always-present Power of God.  It wasnít Godís fault they didnít get healed of whatever sickness they may have had.  It was their own fault.


Are you sick in your body today?  Do you love God?  Do you love Jesus?  


If you do, God wants to heal you as much as He wanted to heal even those who were His enemies.  The same Power of God that was present to heal His enemies is present to heal you right now.  All you need to do is learn how to tap into that Power by faith


Wherever you are at this moment, there are television satellite signals surrounding you that you cannot see.  They are passive, inert and inactive signals.  But just because you cannot see them does not mean they are not there.  If you were to hook up a satellite dish and plug in a receiver, you could begin to receive those ever-present signals and actually view them on a television screen. 


Godís Power is the same way.  It is right there where you are.  It is passive, inert and inactive, but it is there.  It's invisible but it's there.  God is waiting for you to throw the faith-switch and receive His Power.  


How do you do that?  By opening your mouth and saying, ďI believe I receive the Power of God to heal my body, in Jesusí Name.Ē  


Thatís how people in the Bible got healed and had other needs met.  Iíll give you an example. 


"And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years, and had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse, When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment.  FOR SHE SAID, IF I MAY TOUCH BUT HIS CLOTHES, I SHALL BE WHOLE.  And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague." (Mark 5:25-29)


This lady tapped into the Power of God by saying, ďÖI shall be whole.Ē  You can do that.  You can say, ďI shall be whole in Jesusí Name,Ē concerning your body, your finances, your family, your employment or anything else.  Thatís how you hit the power switch.  Thatís how you tap into the ever-present Power of God. 


Keep saying it again and again.  Watch what happens.  The secret to life is expecting the miraculous and SAYING SO!  Godís Power is always present.  You must tap into it with the words of your mouth.  Thatís what people in the Bible did. (Proverbs 18:21)


Go to the Bible.  Find where God promises to help you concerning whatever need you might have.  If you need help doing that, go to your Pastor.  You could e-mail me concerning your problem and I'll show you what God has agreed to do about it in the Bible.  Then you can take His Biblical promise and start speaking it out of your mouth.  That's when miracles happen.  Faith is released through the mouth


Some people criticize this powerful principle.  


Someone asked me, "Oh, are you one of those Name It and Claim It's?"  


To which I responded, "Yes, I am.  Better to be a Name It and Claim It than to be a Doubt It and Live Without It."


You can put this powerful principle into operation in your life.  Ignore the doubters, the head-shakers and the tongue-waggers.  


God Almighty said it will work for you.  Therefore, it will work for you.


There is, however, one condition.  You must make Jesus Christ the Lord of your life by simply saying, "Jesus, You're my choice." (Romans 10:13)  


That's when you become a member of God's family. (John 1:12)  That's when Almighty God will start backing up whatever you say, as long as it's according to His Written Word. (John 15:7) 


That's when things will stop happening TO you and will start happening FOR you.
