You’ve been waiting on God for years to fulfill the vision He has for you. You’ve believed. You’ve fought hard in prayer and contending. You’ve been in a wilderness for what seems forever. The Lord keeps showing you that soon, your destiny will be at your doorstep. And day after day passes by……..but SUDDENLY!
Last week, The Elijah List published a prophetic word the Lord had given to me. My good friend and spiritual mother Joni Ames sent it in and I was so honored that they would consider publishing it. There are amazing prophetic voices that write for them. I sensed the Lord said for me to send the word to Joni and ask what she thought and if she would send it to Elijah List. It was merely an act of obedience. Joni said it was confirmation of what her and James Goll had been hearing and immediately sent it in with her recommendation and introduction to us. You can read the word here - http://www.elijahlist.com/words/display_word.html?ID=20762
Once the word was published by Elijah List on Tuesday 9/4, I was in awe. I received upwards of 50 emails and they still keep coming in. Some were saying how encouraging it was and that it gave them hope and faith to continue to stand. Others were inviting us to their countries to speak and minister and others were wanting to connect and talk because they read my bio and then went to my blog and read more. I know that God has been raising up similar visions across the world, but when you actually get a ton of emails from different people across the country that confirms it, it really boosts the hope button! So often we lose hope and fall into discouragement wondering if we ever heard from God correctly. This shows that we have. Praise God! God knows what we need when we need it, doesn’t He?
There is something huge that came from this as well, but not at liberty to say yet. I can tell you this - that 5-7 friends and connections I have, I have introduced to someone who can potentially fund the dreams and visions the Lord gave them. SUDDENLY God shows up on the scene for them. Connections made and next steps towards destiny for these folks is happening!
I am so overflowing with JOY and TEARS for these connections. Who would of thought that my article getting published by Elijah List would cause this incredible wave of blessings for so many. God is so GOOD! Obedience is key to the SUPERNATURAL WAYS OF GOD!
I’ll say it again - Rejoice with those who rejoice! Romans 12:15b I AM REJOICING!!!
Seriously, I am so happy for these people and know that God is at work behind the scenes for us as well. He will not fail us! His promises are Yes and Amen!
I hadn’t planned on writing about this today, but in my quiet time, I sensed a nudging saying please share this GOOD NEWS so others can see that I AM is at work! I want to encourage you to keep believing God for what HE has promised YOU! Even if it looks dark and hopeless, nothing is impossible for God! He will show up at just the right time.
Jesus can do it ANYTIME!! Here’s a passage that God can do it even if in the natural it looks like there is NO WAY!!!
John 11:38-44 NIV
Jesus Raises Lazarus From the Dead
Jesus, once more deeply moved, came to the tomb. It was a cave with a stone laid across the entrance. “Take away the stone,” he said.
“But, Lord,” said Martha, the sister of the dead man, “by this time there is a bad odor, for he has been there four days.”
Then Jesus said, “Did I not tell you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?”
So they took away the stone. Then Jesus looked up and said, “Father, I thank you that you have heard me. I knew that you always hear me, but I said this for the benefit of the people standing here, that they may believe that you sent me.”
When he had said this, Jesus called in a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out!” The dead man came out, his hands and feet wrapped with strips of linen, and a cloth around his face.
Jesus said to them, “Take off the grave clothes and let him go.”
DO NOT GIVE UP HOPE FOR THE LORD IS FAITHFUL!
Ken - Pray for physical strength and sweet sleep. He has a painting job and a cleaning job this week in addition to his other job. We are thankful for the work but it's hard and quite physical. We are in need of a sizeable amount of provision for upcoming bills due. We are trying to sell things but not much success. Please pray they sell quickly!!!
Michele - Sleep has improved but still not where I would like it. When I sleep I have more mental energy to write my 3 books. I need to work on them more! Still much pain, but know that God is going to bring my healing!
Ministry - Our Thurs group is going well, and one and one discipleship is good. We are still believing for the funding to move into destiny.
