THE SUPPLY OF THE SPIRIT
Does he who supplies the Spirit to you and works miracles among you do so by works of the law, or by hearing with faith.
What an interesting phrase, the supply of the Spirit. We know, as far as God is concerned, this supply is unlimited. There is no end to God, He portions out His anointing to accomplish His plans. The good news is that there is an abundant supply of the Spirit available for every task He calls us to fulfill. The Lord wants to increase His supply in your life, this is where the miracles take place. On the day of Pentecost, we obviously see an incredible supply of the Spirit poured out on the new church in Jerusalem. This anointing changed the lives of everyone it touched, but it didn’t stop there. Each of these new believers received a fresh supply of the Spirit. As they were scattered, God’s purposes and plans began to be realized. People were saved, many were delivered and healed, and churches were planted throughout the region.
Today, the Lord is still supplying His Spirit to accomplish His Kingdom plans.
How does God determine the supply? I’m sure there are many variables, and at the end of the day, He does what He pleases, but the supply of the Spirit is often aimed at people who are hurting.
I often remember the anointing flowing out toward the woman with the issue of blood, and who can forget Lazarus being raised from the dead, or blind Bartimaeus, or the lame man at the pool of Bethesda, or the young son of the widow of Nain. The supply of the Spirit is unlimited and is flowing out through the church to the hurting world all around us.
Today, the Lord is still supplying His Spirit to work miracles amongst us, that never changes. Maybe today, you need a miracle. Maybe you received a bad medical report or possibly some disastrous financial news. Maybe your marriage is in trouble or your children are away from the Lord. There is a supply of the Spirit more than sufficient for your need today. How can you access this supernatural supply, His anointing is flowing in His church. It is important to put ourselves in a place where the Lord is moving, find a body of believers who believe in the supernatural flow of the Spirit. He shows Himself today through His people, He supplies His Spirit and works miracles amongst us, He always has and He always will, that never changes. Today there is a supply of the Spirit adequate for the need in your life.
