If the believer really wants to understand God’s purpose for their lives it seems to be understood quite easily that prayer and Bible study are essential in this pursuit. But knowledge alone will just be reckless, unless the believer is associated with men and woman who carry an anointing in their lives for the miraculous. Such an anointing can be transferred to others through the laying on of hands and petitioning God, in the Name of Jesus, to be filled with power from above.
King David was known for killing Goliath in His youth. Yet there are at least four other giants killed in Scripture–all killed by men who followed David, the giant killer. If you want to kill giants, hang around a giant killer. It rubs off. If you hang around an evangelist, you will think evangelistically. The same happens when we associate with those who regularly experience signs and wonders in their lives
Now about obedience, the real issue. No matter how much preparation is done to increase knowledge or increase the anointing for miracles in life, it never comes to fruition without obedience. The believer must have a plan to look for people in order to pray for them; this plan comes from above. And continue to look for people to minister to, there out there! The more people we come in contact with, the more God’s good news can make an impact. Until the believer acts on what they know, their knowledge in nothing more than theory.
