We Are But Vessels for His Glory

This week has been a whirlwind and I find myself unable to keep up in sharing of what has been taking place; but the fruit has not ceased in coming forth in greater proportions. In all things, I find myself continually saying, “expect the unexpected”, as I shared in my previous post.

On Tuesday, the ladies and I went with AnaMaria, our incredible host, to her church to share and minister at a ladies’ meeting. My mother and sister-in-love shared about ministering to Jesus first and cultivating intimacy with Him. I went to the meeting thinking I had nothing to share, but on the way the Lord downloaded what He desired the ladies to know. I shared on how the Lord has called the warring women of Spain to stand, arise, declare the Word of the Lord over their land, and to claim their inheritance. The whole meeting bore a weighty Presence of God and then we were asked to pray over the women.

As I prayed over the ladies, Jesus began to speak to me about them and give me pictures of what He was declaring them. I gave them the words and the women began to share of how they had been weighted down in anxiety and depression, and had numerous ailments and afflictions. One lady had pain in her back and stomach for 2 and a half years and the doctors had no answers, saying she was making it up. I had a picture of her hands tied and Jesus coming and loosing the bonds. I then prayed for her twice and the pain significantly lessened. For another, I saw Jesus putting His hands on her shoulders and massaging them. She said for 5 months she’s had many worries and severe anxiety and her shoulders have hurt the whole time. I also saw she had weights tied to her ankle. I gave her this word and said she had pain in her leg for 5 months and had trouble walking. I prayed for her and she said she felt heat where my hands were on her leg and shoulders and the pain left her. She felt taller and freer. Many others were healed, encouraged and freed from bondage; it was a fiery time of release all around!

After the ladies meeting we met up with Israel, Abi (Israel’s sister), and her friend, Eva, to share the Gospel with her. I shared the Gospel using the Evangecube; but I didn’t expect that God would have me include my testimony of giving my life to Jesus and being forgiven, healed from all of my diseases, and set free from anger, unforgiveness, fear, unbelief, and bitterness. It was an emotional time and she was deeply moved by my passion for Jesus and in my testimony of what He has done for me. In the end she gave her life to Jesus! She said that she felt a peace come upon her as she made this decision; and she was touched so much that she set up another meeting with a coworker to have us share with him on Thursday as well.

On Wednesday evening, we met up with our pastors for another meeting with a couple whom they were to marry. We got a bit lost in translation and were under the impression that the couple we were meeting with were delving into witchcraft and were not necessarily up with Jesus. We found out later upon meeting Enrique, Amanda, and their children, Christian, and Nicole, that this was not the case. We shared the Gospel with them and they came to the Lord! I discerned they needed prayer for healing and they said the oldest daughter, Louisa, had a cyst under her arm and she needed prayer for healing; as well as Enrique needing healing for asthma. They were touched from the Lord and genuinely wanted God’s hand leading their lives as they go forward. We prayed for them and blessed them, their family, their marriage, and their home.

Brothers and sisters, we are simply vessels to be used for His Glory. He doesn’t need us to accomplish and establish His will on earth, but He chooses to invite us in to partner with Him in His grand plan here on earth. I’ve said it before and I will say again, there is nothing special about us. We are simple people being simply obedient. Being a vessel means that we have emptied ourselves of ourselves and have invited God to come in and fill us with His Spirit until it overflows and drenches those in our midst. With His Spirit living within us, leading us, guiding us, and flowing through us, we cannot fail! We must be a willing vessel for the power of God to be released through us. We can be a vessel but if we are not completely willing and submitted to Him, we will be ineffective and stagnant. We will be like the Dead Sea, who receives the water of life but has no outsource; therefore, it’s waters are distasteful and dead, there is no life within them.

Romans 9:22-28 (TPT)

“And in the same way, although God has every right to unleash His anger and demonstrate His power, yet He is extremely patient with those who deserve wrath—vessels prepared for destruction. And doesn’t He also have the right to release the revelation of the wealth of His glory to His vessels of mercy, whom God prepared beforehand to receive His glory? Even for us, whether we are Jews or non-Jews, we are those He has called to experience His glory. Remember the prophecy God gave in Hosea: “To those who were rejected and not My people, I will say to them: ‘You are mine.’ And to those who were unloved I will say: ‘You are my darling.’” And: “In the place where they were told, ‘You are nobody,’ this will be the very place where they will be renamed ‘Children of the living God.’ ” And the prophet Isaiah cries out to Israel: Though the children of Israel are as many as the sands of the seashore, only a remnant will be saved. For the Lord Yahweh will act and carry out His Word on the earth, and waste no time to accomplish it!”

Have you made yourself a willing vessel for the Lord today? Have you been truly emptied of yourself that Father may fill you with His Spirit and flow through you as a conduit of revival?

The power of God flows freely through a conduit such as this, and that’s how hearts are touched, lives are saved and are transformed. I encourage you to evaluate your life with the Lord today and ask Him if you are a fully willing vessel being used for His Glory; and how you can become freshly submitted to a Him today! This must become our daily submission and partnership with Him, a continual process of refining and growth.

Signs and wonders will follow those who believe, those who are conduits of revival.

Shelter from the Fire

This week has been a special and yet interesting week for the Gibson family! Last Friday, we had the joy of Jeremiah’s younger brother, Aaron, returning home from Army training. Jeremiah and I have not seen him since before we left on our around the world faith journey over a year ago. So it is great getting to catch up with him and hang out during his 1 week stay here in Texas before he heads to his new station in Washington D.C. We have been able to have times of encouragement with him on Saturday at our small group as well as Sunday morning at breakfast with some friends.

Sunday afternoon we had a Gibson family get-together at Jeremiah’s older brother, Garrett’s house. It has been a long time since all of the Gibson kids were in the same room together, seeing as the majority of us are running all over the world following the global call of God on our lives. This time, we were missing Tiffany and Bryson who are in England, but were able to Skype Tiffany for some time and talk to her so that was a blessing. There is no telling when the whole family will be back together again. Aaron will be able to come back home over Christmas for a few days, however, Tiffany and Bryson will probably be spending the holidays in England.

On Monday, I babysat our nephew, Noah, for his mother, Damaris, who was taking the newest addition to the family, little Joseph, to the doctor. I received a call from Damaris in the morning before her appointment saying that it would be delayed because they had a fire at their house. It appears that a nursing pillow in their room had fallen onto a nightlight and went unnoticed until she heard Joseph, who was sleeping on their bed, coughing on the baby monitor; after which she smelled smoke. She ran into the room and grabbed Joseph and left the house, calling the Fire Department. The fire was very controlled and remained in one corner of their room where the firefighters were able to put it out. They lost a few of Joseph’s things but God definitely was watching out for them and divinely protected them, keeping them safe.

The Nursing Pillow

God knew what would happen so He had Noah come stay with us for the day and if Joseph had not coughed, Damaris might not have known for longer. God even orchestrated the weather to be cold and very windy outside so that they could leave the windows open for it to air out their house. Nothing goes unnoticed with the Lord. He sees all things, knows what will happen and also acts on our behalf. Isaiah 64:4 says, “For from of old no one has heard nor perceived by the ear, nor has the eye seen a God besides You, Who works and shows Himself active on behalf of him who [earnestly] waits for Him.”

God is forever faithful and protects His children, sheltering them under the shadow of His wings. May this be an encouragement to you that if God is for you, who shall be against you? (Romans 8:31)
