Signs For Impact by Pastor David Ibiyeomie
Topic: Signs For Impact
Signs are the spiritual heritage of the Children of God.
Isaiah 8:18 Behold, I and the children whom the LORD hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the LORD of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion.
Mark 16:17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
When you walk in signs, the world cannot ignore you. If you desire to be a person of impact then you must work in signs. It is possible to be a producer of signs and a person of impact.
If you want to be a person of impact, your faith is the switch that turns on signs and wonders. Every born-again child of God is expected to produce signs and this is not just for pastors alone. When you work in signs, you command respect in your assignment. However faith is what it takes to turn on the switch of signs and wonders.
Mark 9:23 Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.
Faith is to believe and act on God’s word in order to commit Him to do what He says He will do. Miracles are not only about healing the sick; miracles are for everybody. Miracle is simply God intervening in the affairs of men. You need miracles in your business and academics. There is no point being born-again if you do not believe in miracles because salvation itself is a miracle.

To work in signs and wonders you must possess a healthy conscience. You need a healthy conscience to work in the miraculous. Faith will remain impotent without a good conscience, and signs and wonders are merely theoretical without a healthy conscience.
1 Timothy 1:19 Holding faith, and a good conscience; which some having put away concerning faith have made shipwreck:
You cannot be an instrument of signs and wonders without a healthy conscience. If you don’t possess a good conscience, you cannot be an instrument for signs and wonders. The impact you make is determined by your conscience.
Gehazi, Elisha’s servant could not produce signs and wonders with Elisha’s rod despite the anointing the rod carried. This was due to Gehazi’s bad conscience.
2 Kings 4:31 And Gehazi passed on before them, and laid the staff upon the face of the child; but there was neither voice, nor hearing. Wherefore he went again to meet him, and told him, saying, the child is not awaked.
In 2Kings 5:20-27, Gehazi exposed himself as a man of unhealthy conscience when he collected money from Naman after he was healed of leprosy. Gehazi’s heart was for money and personal benefits and he ended up with leprosy. The anointing of Elisha could therefore not work in his hands. Elisha took over from Elijah and had twice the anointing but Gehazi had leprosy instead of the anointing.
Acts 24:16 And herein do I exercise myself, to have always a conscience void of offence toward God, and toward men.
Acts 19:11 And God wrought special miracles by the hands of Paul.
God performed miracles through Paul because Paul had a clear conscience. The truth is that without a healthy conscience, you can never be in command. A bad conscience makes you walk in deceit while a healthy conscience makes you please God and constantly enjoy His presence.
The journey to glory begins with love. It is an important catalyst to living in the miraculous that would eventually herald your impact. God is not faith, hope, prayer, fasting, healing, prophecy, word of knowledge, neither is He word of wisdom. God is love!
1 John 4:8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
Possessing the nature of love is simply possessing God’s nature. When you walk in love, you walk in the nature of God. When you walk in love, you walk in the miraculous without sweat. To work in the supernatural, you must walk in love. The degree of your love for God determines the dimension of your operation in the supernatural because it takes the nature of love to flow in the miraculous.
When you want God to intervene in your life, thank Him first and you will see the supernatural hand of God.
John 11:41 Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me.
To raise Lazarus from the dead, Jesus gave thanks first. Anything can happen when you give God thanks.
Philippians 4:6 Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
You can receive the promises of God when you live a life of thanksgiving.
No matter the prevailing situation it will be surmounted on the platter of thanksgiving. It is only men of gratitude that scale altitudes and become people of impact. It is time to walk in the miraculous in Jesus Name!
God bless you
