Don’t Be Selfish with The Good News!!!

Daily Encouragement – 

My child, the good news has been richly poured over you. You have been given an amazing opportunity to know Me and come close to Me. 

You must never be selfish with the good news. The good news is for all people to know and receive and come close to Me! You must never withhold or keep it to yourself. There is more than enough for you and all who will receive. 

You were given the good news freely and completely. You must also give out the good news freely and without restriction. I never withhold blessing from you, so you must not withhold the blessing of the gospel from all men.

In giving away what you have received, you will receive more and in greater measure than you ever thought possible. I love you My child! Come close and receive even as you give out all you have!!!

Luke 6:38 “Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.”

Luke 2:10 “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people.”

I love you My child. You know that I am able to multiply greatly what you give Me (time, money, resources…). All of these will be multiplied for the good of the Kingdom as you bring them to Me. Even as they are multipled for the Kingdom they will be given back in greater measure to you.

I am the Great Rewarder of all who press in to Me. Right now, your faith is being strengthened, your love is abounding, and your patience is bringing forth fruit. Even though you may have to go through some trials, know that I am with you causing you to be strengthened and grow in the midst of it.

You are pressing in to Me, and I am bringing you the rewards of heaven every single day. May you recognize these rewards and press in to Me even more!!! I love you my child!!!

2 Thessalonians 1:3-5 “your faith grows exceedingly, and the love of every one of you all abounds toward each other, 4 so that we ourselves boast of you among the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that you endure, 5 which is manifest evidence of the righteous judgment of God, that you may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you also suffer;”

Hebrews 11:6  “…for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.”

Shortcomings or Successes?

Daily Encouragement – 

My child, I love you. I see your heart and know you want to please Me. There may be many distractions, difficulties, and desires for other things, but the true you shines through it all. 

You bring joy to Me when you seek to follow Me fully. Even though you may struggle, I see you coming to Me, and it brings Me joy. Even through the struggles and difficulties, I see your desire to bring Me glory and love and trust Me with all things. 

You have done well, My child. You may measure yourself by your failures and shortcomings, but I look at your successes and praise you for continuing to walk with Me even when it is hard. Thank you for returning to Me when you have walked away and choosing again to stand with Me until the end. 

Keep it open, real, and raw. No falseness or religiosity is needed with Me. I know you so just be honest with Me. I love you My child.

Philippians 1:3-6 I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine making request for you all with joy, for your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ;

I have a special plan and purpose to accomplish through you as you partner with Holy Spirit. Agree and partner with Me and I will do the hard work, the great work, My work through you.

Isaiah 58:8-12 Then your light shall break forth like the morning, Your healing shall spring forth speedily, And your righteousness shall go before you; The glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard. 
Then you shall call, and the Lord will answer; You shall cry, and He will say, ‘Here I am.’“If you take away the yoke from your midst, The pointing of the finger, and speaking wickedness, 
If you extend your soul to the hungry And satisfy the afflicted soul, Then your light shall dawn in the darkness, And your darkness shall be as the noonday. 
The Lord will guide you continually, And satisfy your soul in drought, And strengthen your bones; You shall be like a watered garden, And like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail. 
Those from among you Shall build the old waste places; You shall raise up the foundations of many generations; And you shall be called the Repairer of the Breach, The Restorer of Streets to Dwell In.

Wonderful Works of God

Again, it seems as if we have not updated in a while, but God is doing amazing things.  I just want to give testimony to something that happened last week.  One of our friends here made us some dinner and we sat to talk with her and another guy on staff about how we have seen the Lord work.  Talk ranged from the fallacy of Calvinism to the amazing power of the Lord working through healing, both physical and spiritual.  After talking for about an hour, one of the guys, Ben, asked for prayer.  It was almost a “I’ll take some of that” moment.  We began by praying for his kidneys.  Apparently, he was born with one kidney a lot larger than the other. Along with this, he was never able to sleep on his back because of the constant pain from his kidneys.  As we were praying for this, Katie got a word to check his legs, and one was shorter than the other.  So, she prayed and his leg grew to be the same length as the other.  By the time we were done praying, his kidney pain was gone, and he has slept on his back since with no pain.  We also prayed for his eyes to be healed so he would not have to wear glasses and scoliosis.  In the other areas, he was instantly healed, but not his eyes.

While we were praying for Ben, another guy on staff named Richard came in and began praying with us.  After we finished with Ben, he asked for prayer for his back and neck. He had trouble with them for a long time.  As we prayed, my wife felt led to check his legs as well, and one leg was shorter before she prayed.  We prayed several times and each time, Richard felt something happen, (muscles loosen, stiffness gone…).  When we were done praying, he was not fully healed, but it felt better than it had in a while.

I do not know why both guys were not completely and instantaneously healed. I do not know why God had us do abnormal things like standing on a chair and picking Richard up and holding him in the air.  But, I know that we were obedient to pray and do what He called us to do.  These two guys had enough faith to ask for prayer, and they saw a measure of healing.

After we were done praying for these two, we sat around talking some more.  Another girl came in and mentioned that she was having trouble with her neck and Sonya, the girl who made us dinner and the one we were talking with before the healing broke out was so filled with excitement to pray for her.  We did not see anything happen then, but it was great to see how God reawakened the desire to pray for people because of what she had seen. Interestingly, two evenings later, we had a gathering of young adults here and one of the young men had a word to pray for someone with neck pain. It was the same girl that got prayer. Again, I do not know why she was not healed the first time, but God cared about her enough to reveal prophetically to someone to pray for her. In the end, I noticed something that was key to this whole situation.

These things happened because we began to speak and declare who God was.  We were speaking about principles of healing, and the things that we saw God do on our trip and that led to Ben asking for prayer.  We acted on it and saw Ben healed and this led to Richard’s healing.  Before the young man gave this word, we had been sitting and talking about how good God was and I shared with Him the testimony of two nights earlier.

We are called to be Bold Witnesses for Christ!

We are called to be Bold Witnesses for Christ!

As we speak out the wonderful works of the Lord, it strengthens the faith in people and causes things to happen.  God has called us to be witnesses of what we have seen and know to be true!  The more we share this with the people around us, the more He is able to come and build the faith it takes for miracles to take place.

May our prayer be like the Apostles in Acts 4:29-31 (“Now, Lord, look on their threats, and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your Word, by stretching out Your hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your holy Servant Jesus.”  And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the Word of God with boldness.)

No matter what other may think or how they may feel about you, you are a witness and are called to speak of what you have seen and know to be true!  Today, begin speaking boldly about the wonderful works of God and be obedient in whatever He calls you to say or do and watch Him do greater things still!!!
