Last Monday morning, we flew up to Sacramento, got off the plane and checked into a hotel for a conference with the organization called Church United.
Over 100 pastors gathered there from all over CA.
Around 1pm, I went up to my room. My entire body felt like a truck hit it. Everything really hurt and ached. My head was pounding. I had a fever and chills. There was no way I could walk around. It hit me so suddenly; I had no choice but to crawl into bed. I spent the entire time, isolated in my room. Thankfully, Craig was there to bring me water, tea, and Gatorade.
This conference was special to me. I was so bummed that I missed everything that was planned, because I was sick with the flu. I missed the insider meetings that were scheduled with key movers and shakers in our state. I missed the special tours of the Capitol. I couldn’t be in the secret meeting rooms where everyone prayed for CA and sang praises to Jesus. But mostly, I missed getting to know the Pastors better.
I couldn’t understand why I went all the way up there, just to lay in a soft bed.
What a waste of time. Poor me.
It wasn’t until late Tuesday afternoon right before Craig was scheduled to speak, that I knew why. I was supposed to speak right after Craig. The Lord gave me the exact words to say. The Lord gave me the strength to stand. He was glorified.
Forgive Us Father that We the Church can behave like We are bedridden when We are hurt in life. We tend to isolate and crawl into soft beds of inactivity. We end up missing out on what You have planned for Us.
Forgive Us Father that We the Church can run with a feverish pitch for some legit cause, and yet give up when it gets really hard. Our tendency is to just chill and watch others do the hard work.
Forgive Us Father that We the Church want to be on the insider track with moves of Your Spirit, but when You change things up, we can feel it’s a waste of Our time. Poor Us.
Maybe We forgot that You are the key mover and shaker in Our lives. (Haggai 2:6,7)
Maybe We forgot that You have a special tour called Destiny just for Us. (Jeremiah 29:11)
Maybe We forgot that You are Our secret place that We run to. To pray and sing praises to You. (Psalm 91:1,2)
You might not be able to understand why you feel out of it.
You might not be able to walk around.
You might remember that God likes to do things Suddenly.
He likes to hit You with His Holy Spirit like a truck. Over Your whole body.
With A fresh wind, fresh fire of His Healing and Deliverance.
All You have to do is Believe and Ask. (Mark 11:24)
And He will. Because He does.
Expect Miracles. Every Second. Every Day.
Pastor Jim & Amanda Domen and ChurchUnited.com as they continue to transform CA for Christ! Pray these Pastors throughout the State of CA are empowered to bring truth, healing and deliverance to their people and community. We see Revival in CA Now!!
Council for National Policy- cfnp.org
Pray for the businesses, gov’t & national leaders represented to build unstoppable momentum for our culture to be driven by conservative values. Mainstream media hates the leaders of this organization. Pray for their protection and for financial resources to multiply.
Revival, Miracles and Healing to take place in Parkland, Florida. The Spirit works in mysterious ways, and I know this community is ripe for Harvest. Pray the Church there is open to a Powerful move of the Holy Spirit and many will come to the saving grace of Jesus Christ.
Thank You for praying for my broken foot! I went to the doctor one week later and he took another x-ray (he was afraid the bones would have come apart more and I would need surgery) he came back into my room and said, “I have never seen this before, but your bone is healed!” I threw my arms in the air and said “glory to God!”
The bone was perfect, not even a line where the breaks were. I was in a walking boot for 1 week! Our God is a God of Miracles! Thank You for being part of that Miracle with me! This is an example of how fast He is moving throughout CA and this nation.
He is raising up His Bride!!
Be ready – He is coming again soon!! Revelation 22:20
