Acts 19:11‭-‬12 NKJV

 (11) Now God worked unusual miracles by the hands of Paul, (12) so that even handkerchiefs or aprons were brought from his body to the sick, and the diseases left them and the evil spirits went out of them.

Just before these two verses, it was recorded how Paul laid his hand on 12 people and they received the gift of the holy spirit. Many other great miracles were also recorded on the account of brother Paul. while i was reading through this chapter, I had to pause to take a deep breath, while i evaluate the life of Paul.

Before Paul encountered God, he was a persecutor of Christians (casting them in prison and killing them) Act 8:3 and Act 9:1-4, in fact he was on his was on His way to Damascus, when he met the Lord.

Paul met Christ, he got baptized and he became a preacher of the word of the Lord. the presence of Jesus Christ can be felt in him to the extent that God worked unusual miracles by his hand.....his handkerchief and apron were laid on the sick and their diseases left them.

After a deep thought on the life o Paul, I was very convinced that if God is in us, nothing, I mean absolutely nothing will be impossible for us. He was on a mission to get permission to eliminate Christians, he met God and he became a preacher of gospel to the extent that his apron and handkerchief could heal the sick (WHAT A MIGHTY GOD WE SERVE)

Amidst many, lemme share two other men whose lives shows that; with the presence of God in you, nothing will be impossible for you:

MOSES (Exodus): From the moment he encountered God from the burning bush, nothing became impossible for him. The boldness to confront Pharaoh whom he ran from, his staff became snake that swallowed other snakes, the parting of the Red Sea and son on

PETER (Acts of Apostle): Peter was with Jesus from the moment Jesus mission began, yet he denied Jesus when his mission was about to be fulfilled. This same Peter was filled with the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost and at the beautiful gate he healed a lame. Silver or Gold I do not have but what I do have I give you: in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk....and the lame walked (Act 3:6-8).

The secret of working wonders is GOD IN YOU

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which  is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
Romans 12:1‭-‬2 NKJV

Have a wonderful day.
