DOING EXTRAORDINARY THINGS
Judges 14:6 NKJV “And the Spirit of the Lord came mightily upon him, and he tore the lion apart as one would have torn apart a young goat, though he had nothing in his hand. But he did not tell his father or his mother what he had done.”
Wow! Did you just read that? Samson tore a lion apart with bare hands! Amazing! The Spirit of the Lord descended mightily upon him and he did what could not have been done by natural strength. Hallelujah!
That’s the key to doing extraordinary things; the power of the Spirit, the anointing. There’s a limit to what a man can achieve with his strength, his intelligence, his knowledge, experience and his skills; not by might, not by power, but by the Spirit of God!
The anointing is not only for killing lions, Jesus and the apostles did not kill physical lions, they used the power to do good, to do miracles and to heal all who were oppressed by the devil. Samson killed the lion without a weapon! Maybe people have told you that you are not gifted, or that you are not well educated, or that you have no connections and long legs, or that you broke; hear me, we are talking about the same power by which the world was created! Have you received the Holy Ghost since you believed? Then you too can do exploits!
