Witness Him Now
I just got back from working a "Walk to Emmaus". During that walk, I saw things happen that I have never seen before...not in that number. I saw a whole group of people...EVERYONE we prayed for...get delivered and healed. Now I don't know about you, but I have prayed a whole lot of prayers in the past years that God did not answer instantly. I saw it in the Word, but I could not access it. Is anyone picking up what I am putting down? Then two years ago God gave me the "Parable of the Raccoon". When I told the story of the raccoon, everyone who wanted it got delivered. For the first time I saw the word preached with power. Then this weekend a whole table of women came into the prayer room, a kind of impromptu thing. While passing through, they voiced that they wanted to be prayed for. Everyone who sat down in that chair received deliverance and healing. Wow! I didn't tell the raccoon story, but it happened anyway. God, what just happened?
Then I began to look back at what words were spoken. I wrapped my arms around the first lady and said, "Heart, open wide. Let the light of Jesus and the love of God permeate every broken place, every hidden chamber, every place that was rejected and trampled, abused and discarded. Go into every insecure place and heal this heart completely. You said that You have come to heal the broken-hearted and to set at liberty those who are bound, to open prison doors and set the captives free, so LORD of Heaven's Armies come with power. I ask this in Jesus' name. AMEN" OK, so as I thought back on what happened, I realized with both the "Parable of the Raccoon" and the prayer spoken over these women, the common factor is "Open up you gates, you everlasting doors and let the King of Glory come in. And who is the King of Glory? The LORD mighty in battle, He is the King of Glory!"
Wow! We spend our lifetime trying to shut the gates and guard our hearts so that we will not be hurt again, and God is saying, "I stand at the door and knock, and everyone who opens to Me I will come in and sup with him and he with me." Heart wide open! Wow! With the "Parable of the Raccoon", I always ask, "Do you have raccoons?" They say, "Yes." I then ask, "Do you want to get rid of those raccoons?" They say (most of the time), "Yes." I then pray over their heart, "Search their heart, O LORD, and know them. Try their anxious thoughts. See if there be any wicked way in them and lead them in paths of life everlasting." Then whatever God brings to their mind, I lead them to accept their guilt and confess their sin. God then forgives them and erases the consequences of that sin, and peace comes. This time I just prayed, "Heart, open wide to the light and the love of God!" I think in both cases the person stood in agreement with me that their heart's door could open. Once opened, the Prince of Peace can enter to save, deliver, and heal. Wow!!!!! The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy!
Blessings, my friend. May you, too, find the peace that passes all understanding, and may you prosper and be in health...even as your soul prospers.
The scripture says, "May you prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers."
