God physically healed me this morning! Let me share with you what God did and at the end of the video I want to pray for you if you have any physical issues you need healing for!
In the “Great Commission” Jesus tells us to GO! Go make disciples. GO Baptize. Go teach my Commandments. But Who is he telling to Go and what does Go look like?
When the Lord told Joel and I to dissolve Supplying Needs our non-profit that collected food, clothes, furniture and other supplies it felt like something had died on the inside of me. Helping people with product goods was and is my passion. It is what charges me and fills me full of joy. When God said to give it all up I had to bury it to be obedient to the Lord.
Over the past few months God has been speaking to me about starting up Supplying Needs again. When the Lord first started speaking to me about it I told him I was afraid and didn’t know if I had the drive to do it for fear God would just take everything away from us again. The Lord reassured me that He would never ever EVER ask us to give everything up as he did with Supplying Needs and this time around it would out last Joel’s and my life.
Just recently God told me he wanted to resurrect Supplying Needs. I was in shock and God reminded me that Joel and I had asked Him to resurrect SN the Easter after we had given everything away. That Easter service the Pastor had been speaking about God not only resurrecting Jesus but things in our lives that were dead and gone. Joel and I had cried out to God to resurrect the ministry He had given us then taken away. I had forgotten those prayers but the Lord was showing me that is exactly what He wants to do now.
So in June of this year Joel will be stepping up as lead Pastor of Life River Fellowship and the Lord showed me in July we will start asking for donations again, looking for a warehouse, praying for trucks and vehicles to pick up donations, forklifts, pallet jacks and pallet racks. Our church will be reaching out to the community through product goods all while sharing the love of Christ. Life River Fellowship will be doing events and food give aways.
Am I scared? Yeah a bit because it was so hard almost 4 years ago giving up what we loved and lived for only to start over again. Am I excited? HECK YA! This is my passion and drive. I love watching God work and I love doing the Lord’s will. I am excited to finally watch something grow and not have to tear it down. I am so overjoyed it is going to outlast us like God promised me. I am stoked about all the lives we get to interact with, meet, and share Jesus’ love. I am overjoyed to be God’s hands and feet once again in an area that I thrive in.
So here is the deal if you think about us pray! Pray for God’s will, for everything we need, and as well as people to help. And for you I hope this encourages you that even if a dream is dead in the grave that God can resurrect anything He chooses to. Just because it is long gone doesn’t mean God has forgotten about it. Be encouraged my friend, God can bring anything back from the dead!
As the proverb says if it is within your power to act you need to not withhold goods. That could mean an employee to an employer, someone God had put on your heart, or a person that needs to borrow from you.
Like the Psalmist said God is good, God’s love endures forever and the Lord is faithful from generation to generation. In this devotion we dive a bit more into those three descriptions of God. Psalm 100
When we are in pain, sorrow, or just have a lot of why questions we can start to challenge, blame, or manipulate God. For Job it couldn’t get worse and so with his words he started to challenge the Lord. Well the Lord had some pretty hard questions for Job.
Job had everything taken away from him but on some level he knew that he needed to praise God and worship Him. Even when we don’t understand, even when we don’t know the why God is still good and worthy to be praised.
Whether good, bad, happy, sad, tragic, or triumph your immediate response should be Worship. Why, because it is so powerful and will help you in any circumstance. Job was such a great example of worshiping God immediately in his darkest hour.
The Lord is so good at turning sorrow into gladness and mourning into joy. He did that when the Jews were going to be annihilated and the Lord turned it around to where they could defend themselves and save their family.
When you do something so right or say something on point but you don’t get promoted, praise, or recognized like you should. Just know that God is in control and delaying it for the right time. Mordecai saved the king from assassination but didn’t get recognized for a while after it happened. But when He did it literally saved his life.
