while God also bore witness by signs and wonders and various miracles and by gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to His will.

The Christian life is by nature supernatural. We are not expected to make things happen, we can only yield and watch things happen. We are witnesses of His work, not really the author of anything. That takes the pressure off of us, who amongst us can perform a miracle anyway? This verse of scripture describes the incredible way the Lord bears witness to our testimony with His amazing display of the supernatural. Dick Mills has some good insight on this verse.

“The Greek word translated bearing witness here is a triple compound: sunepimartureo (soon-ep-ee-mar-too-reh’-o). It is composed of three elements: sun (“alongside”), epi (“in addition to”), and martureo (“to witness and testify”). Thus this verse says that if you will give your testimony to an unbelieving world, the Lord will come alongside and add His witness and testimony to yours. When the Lord bears witness, it will be with signs, wonders, diverse miracles, and gifts of the Holy Spirit. Supernatural confirmation is thus promised to you.”

I will never forget the first sermon I preached when the Lord brought me to pastor in New Orleans. That first service only had a handful of people present, but there was a group of young people who came to my first meeting. The Lord displayed His Glory that first day, to my amazement, several of them gave their hearts to the Lord that morning.Thirty five years have passed since that day, I know of several of them who are still serving the Lord, one is pastoring in a nearby congregation. The Lord bore witness to my inexperienced preaching, with signs, wonders, and miracles. The work of God is exactly that, the work of God. All He is looking for is yielded vessels. Are you one of those yielded vessels? What does it take to be used by the Lord in miracles? All it takes is yieldedness, a willingness to look foolish as you testify to what you have seen and heard, the rest is up to Him.
