“Come, let me tell you something. I want you to get into a deeper circle with Jesus as you pray for me.” This is the request that I received from my 91 year old Mother-in-Law some two or three months ago. You see, I was leading the altar worship prayer from the pulpit one Sunday morning and I prayed for my Pastor, my Asst. Pastor and my First Lady, along with other issues and areas that I felt compelled to pray for during my time of intercession. At the end of the service, this 91 year old Holy Ghost filled-Seer/Prophetess, called me to the side, took me by the hand, and made this request of me. It was something about the way our eyes connected with one another as she poured out.
Since then, I have been doing exactly what she requested. Just this past weekend, God overwhelmed me and left me speechless as He blessed me to minister in dance at a program. See, for the last 6 weeks, I have been suffering with an illness that not too many may have known about. The illness affected my ability to dance. The enemy wanted me to think that I was over and washed up! In my deeper circle that I have started to form with the Lord, I was able to press past the doctor’s reports and people’s reports (you know folks that don’t have doctor degrees will also try to give you a diagnosis about your condition if you listen), and I was able to dance under an open heaven! The reports and manifestations from the ministry were phenominal! All I could say was “God, You done did it again! You have completely blown me away and swept me off my feet yet again!”
Let me encourage you to stay in the race but go deeper! Go deeper in your passion for God! Spend extra sacrificial time with Him alone. Pray for your needs and other needs last or at another time, but spend intimacy time with Him first and be CONSISTENT!!! I capitalize this because I need to remember to do this! Just wanted to encourage you with this testimony.
*P.S.- My husband and I will be celebrating His Asst Pastor Appreciation Day on September 27, 2015 at 2:30 pm at our church location (212 East 5th Street, Sylacauga, AL 35150). If you are unable to attend, please send up prayers asking the Spirit to do something unusual on a totally deeper dimension!
