“Repent for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!” — Matthew 4:16
Today I want to charge and challenge you in your faith in the secret place! God is the same, yesterday, today and forevermore!
Is your house built on the rock? Let this be a time we draw near to God and stand on not-the-words-of-media but instead on the Word of God! Spend your time intentionally worshipping, praying and fasting.
For a great wave of revival is on the horizon!
At the beginning of the year I had a meeting that was very unusual. If you follow my ministry you will know that even wheelchairs being emptied is not unusual — but this meeting was… unusual! It had “REVIVAL” written all over it!
To be honest, I did not expect anything out of the ordinary. We worshiped, I preached, I called out words of knowledge for the sick to be healed and called forward those who had been healed to share their testimony.
Suddenly a shout came from my right…
“What’s happening over there?” I asked.
A sweet blonde 81-year-old lady responded with a delighted shout: “I can hear you now!”
And up she came running to the altar with exhilaration and praise, repeating: “I can hear you now , I can hear you now!”
Out she took her hearing aids, “I don’t need these anymore!”
Praise immediately filled the room and the atmosphere was thick with the glory of God!
This was the first of three hearing aids left on the altar that day and the miracles just kept rolling in!
Afterwards the pastor asked me with a blank face: “What do we do now? I haven’t seen anything like this for 20 years!”
A fear of the Lord came upon me.
Revival is in our midst.
Right now all over the globe, as many circumstances are swirling in a completely opposite direction, one that is fueling fear, worry and panic, the Holy Spirit is simultaneously breathing on the Body of Christ a new wave of faith for revival!
And with this faith, He is breathing a renewed hope and great confidence in the truth that no matter what is happening all around us in the natural, His character will never change and we can rest in our heavenly Father!
Faith in Jesus in the midst of the storm!
God gives us an incredible picture of this in Mark 4: 35- 41, when during a bad storm on the Sea of Galilee, while the disciples are in a state of panic and fear, Jesus is calmly at rest in the boat! Jesus wasn’t just physically at rest he was spiritually at rest. He was one with the Father and knew that in the midst of this storm, his Heavenly Father was in total control and could be trusted in every circumstance!
And just like in that storm many years ago, as the “coronavirus storm” has now been hitting the globe, Jesus is truly calling us to that same place of rest, inner peace, and oneness with himself. He is releasing the grace for faith and hope in the truth that Jesus is so incredibly with us and that we have nothing to fear!
Miracles of hope in the midst of the storm!
Be encouraged that more than ever Jesus loves to demonstrate his consistent miracle-working power, even in seasons such as this!
“ Fear not, for I am with you, says the Lord”! The reality is that there are many accounts such as this 81-year-old lady receiving her miracle of hearing! Just last weekend we saw another lady get out of a wheelchair!
The Lord is moving mightily all over the earth. Yes, even in the midst of the storm! May each one of us, be looking for daily opportunities to be declaring the powerful message of faith and hope to a desperate world right now!
Draw near — revival is here!
