Yesterday was the second night of a two day revival. I attended last night's service and it was awesome. Last week God truely blessed me with his own spirit and I went to a higher level in him. I got to see first hand what he has called me to do. It was amazing to see his spirit there healing people physically, emotionally and finically. When I was called up and told I was going to see and experience first hand what the power God has given me I was open to see God work in a way I had never seen him before. I felt people pain on the inside of me, I felt when God was moving and healing. I also got to see how some God just can not work in if there spirit is not open to recieving God's blessings and healing. I was truely moved and thankful that I open my heart to recieve. I had been asking God for a long time to give me the anointing to healing the physically sick, to give me the glory from him to lay hand on the sick. I am very passionate about people being sick.
God has softened my heart and I desire to see people healed, especially those who belong to him. Sometimes the pain and hurt is so bad that we do not know how we ought to pray, some just don't have enough faith to believe the promises of God and what God says is available to those who love him. That is where faith of those who believe in God's healing Power! I was healed of issues in my reproductive system, healed of past pain, past thoughts, past feeling, so that I can now operate in the gift. I want to encourage you today that with God it is never over! It is never to late for you!
God want's to empower us with his own spirit to walk in total obdience to him and be set free from our past, to do what jesus did. To recieve the baptism in the holy spirit and with fire! Luke 3:15-18 I know some may have diferences in there belief of these scriptures but I take scriptures as they are and if the bible said it I am going to walk in it because the word of God says that his word will not return unto him void. So recieve it if you believe it!
Luke 3:15-18 The people were waiting expectantly and were all wondering in their hearts if John might possibly be the Christ. John answered them all, "I baptize you with water. But one more powerful than I will come, the thongs of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire. His winnowing fork is in his hand to clear his threshing floor and to gather the wheat into his barn, but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire." And with many other words John exhorted the people and preached the good news to them.
Your tests are truely your testimony! What you have been through, what you are going through right now is going to take you deeper in christ. See what Romans 8:28 says:
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who[a] have been called according to his purpose. 29 For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. 30 And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.
God is and will work out every situation. As chldren of God we don't know how to pray always or what to pray but we can know the purpose of God which the Holy Spirit desires to accomplish. All things will work together in cooperation for the believer's good will, that is we will be comformed to jesus christ now and reign with him later. He is comforming us now to get his work done here on earth and so that when we Go to him later we will be perfect. How many of you can agree that with the things we deal with emotionally, our attitudes and thoughts we can not go to heaven with? We cannot go with all these issues so we have to deal with them now. We will have a new body one day, one that will never age or die but we will still be ourselves the same soul we have now is the same one we will have then. So we have to prepare now to live eternally with God! The attitudes we have, thoughts, and issues will not fly in heaven.
As in the B.A. Journal topic you were to wirte about what God has called you to do? We have to know this because there is something for each of us to do if we are his child and we have to be busy with the things of God. Ask him daily until he answers you. He said if you ask he will answer you. He will tell you and then he may tell someone else and you will know it is him speaking because he would have told you first already. But have an ear to hear the voice of God so that you can operate just as Jesus did. Jesus told his diciples that they will do the same works as he did, and they will do even greater things. Luke 14:12 I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.
Someone should get really excited because we just read a scripture from the bible that anyone can do what jesus did and even greater things!!!! Ask him for the power that fire to do what he said in this scripture.
Your attitude determine's your altitude. Have the right attitude about His promise of what we can do with the Holy Spirit and we will soar like the eagles!
