Don’t Quit – Getting past criticism and your past.

As I was driving today from Nebraska to southwest Kansas and listening to some of the newer worship music out of Bethel Church in Redding, I was thinking about several things.

I had a good friend who was running for US Congress this week and he did not win, and in fact was beaten by a very narrow margin.  He worked hard and I know he must be disappointed, perhaps even discouraged.   He is a godly man with great integrity and a fine track record in politics and realms of service to the general population.  Yet I know that discouragement can easily sneak in when we have worked hard and things don’t go as we had planned.

Supernatural Kids Ministry Ages 5-11

Last night we had a cool testimony as I led my second session with children at Eagle’s Nest on the Power and Access of the Holy Spirit – Some of the children heard from God in their small group prayer times as they prayed spontaneously for each other and most of the kids experienced some carpet time, and the parents began to pick up their little ones but the ones who had not been prayed for were …waiting in a line – at one point there was only a couple of children left.One was a young girl that I would estimate was only 7 years old. She came forward for the prayer for the Holy Spirit but I noticed she was limping, so I asked if her foot was hurting and she nodded her head yes, so I first prayed for her foot, and after a short bit asked her to walk across the room. You could see the skepticism in her eyes, and she sighed, I suspect because she knew her foot was hurting and that meant more pain, but she did it, and came back and I asked her how it was, and she said it was a little bit better.

I then prayed one more time for about 20 seconds and then asked her to walk across the room again, and this time she did not sigh, but complied, and I could visibly see that the limp was gone, and as she came back, she had this huge smile on her face and put her thumb up in the air and told me that the pain was completely gone. I then prayed for her again, and she gently fell to the floor. It was very cool, how God touched and healed her too.

Earlier in the service, some of the children gathered around me and prayed for me too – that was really sweet and I sensed the anointing really strong from some of them. The previous Sunday we had about 80 children on the floor experiencing the power and the presence of God in their lives.  Even some of the adult helpers got blasted by the Holy Spirit.

The next Kingdom Encounter is Friday evening so you Omaha area folks come out and expect a great and wonderful time with God in His presence in similar fashion to the note above. I am teaching on and about “faith”. Saturday I am ministering in Seward Nebraska teaching two sessions on Kingdom Dynamics. Remember, With God all things are possible and Jesus is Lord!
