You have to come in contact with omnipotence. Then when you do that, you're in contact with the supernatural. Your life change, your thinking's change, your mind change, you're made different. Your sickness is finished. God's great power moves in.
Usually, it takes a state of emergency, to throw us into desperation. See? It's too bad it has to do that, but human beings are so slothful in their mind, that it takes an emergency. Something arises, and when they do, then it--it throws them into that desperation. And really, in doing that in desperation, it brings out that real thing that you are. It shows what you're made out of, in the time of desperation. It usually pulls out all the good things that's in you.
Remember, we are not on a picnic, but we're in a battlefield. Many people just think that when they become a Christian that that's all they need to do, that that settles it forever, as they are a Christian and everything's going to come easy. Don't never get that in your head. For I become a Christian to fight, fight the good fight of faith. I become a Christian to get in the battle lines.
A gift, is getting yourself out of the way, so God can come in, see what He shows, what He does. A gift is not, "I got power to do this, I got power!" Your power of a gift is get yourself out of the way. And the gift that God has give you, operates through that then, see, after you're out of the way.
