Jesus said in John 14:12

This passage speaks directly to that. Peter goes to a woman who has passed away and brings her back from the dead. Ok, while Peter didn't do all the work himself it's an incredible sign as to the power we have through prayer.
I've written about this before. We will do some amazing works through simple faith in God. Peter knelt beside Tabitha and prayed. With confidence he told her to rise, and she did.
There is more than an example of our faith bringing greater works than Jesus did while he was with us. What Peter also shows us is his confidence in God. When we truly follow God's will we have this surety in life. We have the confidence that we are living for God and that our works will glorify Him.
Doesn't it feel great to know we are living God's plan for us? When we act for Him we are sure that we're doing the right thing. Life just feels so right, so sure. I pray that each of us can find the comfort and confidence that God's love brings us.
