SIGNS, WONDERS AND MIRACLES
In that hour Jesus rejoiced in the Spirit and said, "I thank You Father, Lord of Heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and intelligent and revealed them to babes. Luke 10:21
Jesus was rejoicing over His disciple's "Child-like faith" which they had exhibited during their short mission trip. Exercising spiritual gifts, casting out demons and healing the sick doesn't involve thinking with your mind, but being led by the Spirit!
Take for instance, speaking in tongues, it doesn't require a thought process because it bypasses the brain and comes from the spirit of a man! This is why baby Christians can perform signs, wonders and miracles, they don't over-think the process because Holy Spirit works the miraculous! I saw many more miracles when I was first starting out before I got educated in the Word!
Don't get me wrong, being stewards of the mysteries of the kingdom and showing yourselves approved by God in handling accurately the word of God is very important, while also retaining child-like faith in order to operate in the Spirit!
Then He turned to His disciples and said privately, "Blessed are the eyes which see the things you see; "For I tell you that many prophets and kings have desired to see what you see, and have not seen it, and to hear the things you hear, and have not heard it." Luke 10:23,24
