SHAKE OFF THAT VIPER

Acts 28 verse 3 "And when Paul had gathered a bundle of sticks, and laid them onrepparttar fire, there came a viper out ofrepparttar 138972 heat, and fastened on his hand."

One Saturday morning, I read this amazing account aboutrepparttar 138973 Apostle Paul being bit onrepparttar 138974 hand by a venomous snake. The barbarous people who knew nothing aboutrepparttar 138975 power of God were watching. In their past experience, everyone who had been bitten by this type of snake had died. They watched closely as Paul shook offrepparttar 138976 beast inrepparttar 138977 fire. When they saw that no harm had came to him, they decided he was not a murderer but a god. Paul then prayed for and laid hands onrepparttar 138978 Chief's father who was sick of a fever andrepparttar 138979 bloody flux. The man was healed, andrepparttar 138980 power of God was manifested in a special way.

Perception of Freedom

Written by Michelle Jacobson


Sometimes we're already free but we don't realize it. We don't believe it or act like itů

There's a story I've read where an eagle got trapped in a chicken cage as an egg. He grew up there withrepparttar chickens.

He didn't think that he could fly because all of those around him told him that none of them could fly -including him. He believed them.

This eagle grew up thinking that he was a chicken. When he saw an eagle fly overhead he watched longingly. He hadrepparttar 138871 urge to fly but never tried it because of what he believed.

Do you feelrepparttar 138872 urge to fly in Christ Jesus. The urge to do more of what Jesus said you could do. To do more than anyone on this planet thought you could -including you.?

You're notrepparttar 138873 only one. God told us in Ephesians 3:20 that He is able to give us above what we ask for -or even think of.

More promises are given to us in John 14:12 as Jesus said that when we believe on Him and what He did, we would also do those things! Then He went on to tell us that greater things than these would we do because He went to His Father!

That's a lot! Far more thanrepparttar 138874 chickens said that we could do!

Who We Really Are God's word was given to us inrepparttar 138875 Bible to show us who we really are. It's not just a list of does and don'ts. Through Jesus we can become children of God Almighty.

Once we're born again we are transferred torepparttar 138876 kingdom of God. This means that we are heirs to what God has made available to us!
