Eph 3:19 Live full lives, full in the fullness of God.
Eph 3:20 God can do anything, you know–far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us.
Eph 3:21 Glory to God in the church! Glory to God in the Messiah, in Jesus! Glory down all the generations! Glory through all millennia! Oh, yes!
By Tuesday night end I was ready to take a ball bat to myself. The voices I was hearing was not God it was the Devil. The Devil was quick to point out that my faith may not be where it should be. It was the Devil who laughed and said to me, “see there your declared belief system has failed you again.” Between a group of renown speakers and men of God and perhaps some over zealous hyper spirituals I went from receiving to be hyper critical of myself. I had caught a dose of self condemnation instead of a dose of the ghost.
Here’s what happen ~ I was sitting as far back on the wall row of chairs at Victory Life Durant during the last day of women’s conference. Rhonda had drove the bus for the ladies on both days and I tagged along. The speaker had invited the ladies to walk through a receiving line to be filled with the Holy Ghost. Suddenly without notice 3 ladies approached me and ask if I would mine them praying for my healing. I nodded and bowed my head. For 5 mins or so they all prayed for my healing. At the end one of the ladies said, “take up your mat and walk, you are healed.” At this point lots of ladies in that line were watching. I froze.
Over the past 5 years this has happened more than once. The problem is simple; you the reader or general public continue to view me as sick because I’m in a wheelchair. You see no visual evidence that I have received healings; perhaps even more than one. You are looking for the instant highly sought after miracle.
Have you ever considered that I don’t pray for something I already have. My healing was paid for over 2,000 years on the cross. To date I have received upwards to 10 different healings (major improvements in physical condition) often just the simple healing of a instant condition that allowed me to breathe and live. According to man’s notes and charts I’m a dead man walking but they don’t get my “BUT GOD.’
Last night you heard the speaker say: ”your not the cop of your church.” So walk easy and don’t always ask the classic “good will question.” That question is “how you doing, you’re looking great.” Ask me what Jesus has done for me lately and I”ll be thrilled to share my current God Story.
God doesn’t want me to share my “health conditions” with you. God wants me to share the good news with you and spread it everywhere.
For just a few seconds the devil had me believing I had lost my faith and belief system when I didn’t get up and take my mat and walk for those ladies. Yes, I said “those ladies.” They were the ones expecting a visual miracle. When I didn’t walk for them they gladly moved down the line in whispers of disbelief ….”that old man just doesn’t believe or receive right.” Is that what you thought when you saw that event? just asking …………
