When you begin to share your supernatural experiences and the healings that you have seen take place, sooner or later you will get someone who feels the need to interject, “You mean God did it; not you.”
It takes all of my Holy Spirit self-control to not “lay hands” on them.
As if I believe that I somehow have to power to heal a person or to see into a person’s life and tell them what they need to hear.
It is Foolish to Insist on Clarification Every Time
Even when we are talking about natural gifts people do this…
You tell them they sang a great song and they respond with, “it wasn’t me it was Jesus.”
That’s funny because Jesus seemed to look a lot like you up on stage…
This sort of false humility is ridiculous and unnecessary. When someone compliments you just say “thank you” and maybe add how you’ve been working for months to get that song just right so that you could sing with excellence before your God.
This situation gets even more ridiculous when it’s something that is humanly impossible.
I Healed Him
When I share the story about how I healed the man in pain from appendicitis I obviously know it wasn’t me.
Just because I don’t say God did it through me doesn’t mean I think I did it.
When was the last time you healed someone then thought, “I did that”?
That’s right… never.
I just don’t feel like it is necessary to take the extra 5 minutes explaining that God used me to heal that person through the power of Holy Spirit.
Anyone over 5 years old should know that I’m incapable of doing that on my own.
From this point on I’m going to evoke what I’m calling “the Divine Assumption” when talking about the miraculous.
The Divine Assumption:
Me assuming that you will be able to figure out, without me telling you, that every miracle done through me is done by the power of God and not my own personal ability.
In the Future
You can use this post as a recourse for when you begin to share your stories and testimonies of God working miracles through you also.
When someone stops you and says, “you mean God healed them, not you.” instead of hitting your head on the table because they are needing clarification for something a kindergartener could figure out you can give them this link and they can read how you are perfectly aware that God is the one who makes miracles happen and not you personally.
