So many times we’re struck by the problems the world throws at us. I know that was the case for this middle-aged woman who was diagnosed with breast cancer…
-Season of Joy-
Hope is never gone where faith resides! I was attending an event with Ben Hurr, a drama performed by amazing singers acting out the love of God. The theatre was nearly full with Christians even though it was intended for an outreach tool. It was an inspiring drama that God used to touch the hearts of many! God bless all those who were involved!
After the show the pastor went up and asked my evangelism team to come up front along with those who were sick. It is during this time I’m assured that God will remove the burdens of sickness and disease for those who’ve been beat down by the world. God wants to display His love and power, especially in big gatherings with unbelievers!
I stood up at front with those who are in the team, praying for the right people to be bold and come up front. Many times the Filipino culture influences a shy character, so without saying, it’s hard for them to raise their hands let alone walk up to the front for prayer. Though many ended up coming to the front. The first one whom I meet was a woman who had breast cancer. I don’t recall the words I spoke to her, but I do remember what God did! The power of God was evident on her. I can laugh about it now, but before she got healed the presence of God was so strong that she began to fall over. Though thank God for the team member that was half her weight pushing on her back to keep the lady up, haha! It was quite a sight to see! The cancer and all the pain left her body that night. She was grinning from ear to ear, praising God on High then testified to everyone in that auditorium what God had done! All glory to Him!
It doesn’t matter what we’re going through as there is a season of joy coming your way! Above the clouds the sun is still shinning, God has never withdrawn His promises! The next lady that I couldn’t forget, came up to the front with a lower back problem. She had cracks or something terribly wrong in her lower vertebra and felt hopeless for many months. I know it may not be easy to relate to this injury, but we can all relate to feeling a sense of hopelessness. Putting aside our hopelessness and fear, we prayed for her back to be healed in the name of Jesus. She too was delivered that night from suffering and experienced her season change! After the pain left, she began to dance all around that theatre giving praise to God, who deserved it all!
Do you want to feel the freedom that these women had? Then don’t give up on God, don’t give up on prayer! As you fall on your knees to pray, you will rise! Find others to pray with and don’t try to go through this world alone. God said, “It’s not good for man to be alone”. “Share each other’s burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ.” – Gal 6:2 (NLT). “Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord.” – James 5:14.
-Season of Preparation –
The time in the Philippines have forever impacted my life and stole my heart! Just last week I arrived back in my home town to build up for long term missionary work. I know 1 1/2 years might already sound long, but I tell you, my heart is set on reaching those who are struggling, broken and living in a world without the relationship of Jesus. I want nothing more than to be there with those who experience their freedom, as there is no greater joy! I want to partner with God and allow Him to use this life for His glory! Know that you have shared in this reward that God is pouring out! It’s because of your donations that have reached out to those in dire need! I’m praying that you too will feel that peace that comes from giving it all to Him and saying, “Here I am Lord, use me”. Maybe He won’t call you to another country, but you have a big part by supporting His ministry. Rest assured your storing up treasures in heaven!
“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Matt 6:19-21
God has guided me to raise an army, and I plan to do so. I’m praying and watching for those who desire to pray over the sick and watch God heal them! I thank the Lord that even in this short time frame that I’ve been back in Georgia, God has given me many to build up in faith, that they too will pray for the sick and see them healed! I want to freely give as God has given to me! Contact me if that is you!
I’m not sure how many months I will be in Georgia (praying only until winter), as I’m preparing my missionary status here in the States and raising up prayer warriors. Continue to partner with God in this ministry He’s given me by giving your tax deductible donations. He will reward you with treasures in heaven! Hundreds have been healed and tens of hundreds more have come to know and hear Jesus Christ, because of your donations! I know that tens of thousands are soon to be flooding into the Kingdom, God has shown me many visions concerning this. Many doors have also opened up in just this brief time that I’ve been back in Georgia, so please be praying for God to order my steps as His servant. He is most assuredly a God of order. He gave the details to King Solomon for building the temple, and Noah for building the Ark. He will do the same in my life, and in every dollar that is donated into His Kingdom!
