I received an email asking for teachings from me. If you're not getting enough from my blogs, I have several audio teachings available for download which you can access by clicking either of the pictures above. Other options are booking mentoring sessions or attending #SY5779 in October.
Breaking Generational Curses was the first deep deliverance offering of 2018. It gives you a format for locating those tough areas in your life that God wants to deal with, but you may have no clue about. Seven by 7 Power Prayer is a 7-week prayer protocol going through Colossians 1.
Both of these processes brought me to greater freedom than I've ever experienced before and I'm enjoying this season of life immensely. I pray they do the same for those who partake.
Now to the importanter stuffs. 😉
I finished my 3-month season of praying in tongues daily - I hit 150 hours of tongues on June 30. I was expecting something huge when my season ended, but nothing huge happened. I asked God what was up with the delay in my huge something and when He showed up (a couple days later, mind you - He's on His own sked for real), He helped me realize that it may not have resulted in an explosive occurrence at conclusion, but provided a lot of incremental blessings and provisions throughout. So all those things - three months of amazing peace - are what I have to celebrate and be thankful for.
And that's huge. Do you know how many people's lives are in turmoil? Believers, too. And I just experienced three months of complete peace. Peace is priceless. You may not realize how amazing three months of peace is, because your life is so hectic you can't imagine it. Or perhaps you're in constant pain so you can't imagine it. I just lived it.
But, the day after I stopped, the enemy attacked me pretty good. I suspect they'd been wanting to hit me with their usual mess but couldn't because I was in a Holy Spirit bubble for a while. And even though they've caused me some problems, they also messed up. The attack made me ask The Lord why it was allowed. I got the answer - a trauma bond - and I went to work to get delivered and healed. I also exercised dominion over time to compress (quicken) the healing process. Lastly, my spirit stepped to the front to participate and release heaven's strategy. This is a prime example of God working things together for my great (Romans 8:27-28).
A matured spirit can facilitate healing for you, too. You just have learn how to work with it. Ministering to the human spirit is one of the things Patti and I will cover at #SY5779. The Church has done a solid job of ministering to our souls, but The Bible tells us that our spirits have an umbilical cord to The Godhead (John 17:21), so we need to nurture them even more than our souls. Our souls can't/don't exist outside of our bodies, but our spirits go into eternity so they're a priority.
Additionally, a matured spirit will keep us from falling back into sin which is a soul issue (read Romans 6). The portion of you that dies is the soul, the old man. The new creation is a spirit that's alive to commune in God's realms. Exciting stuffs.
I did some data collecting last week in an attempt to determine if it was only my circle or a bigger issue of enemy attack. I believe it was just my group being hit beginning July 1. What was your life like on July 1? Did the enemy strike against you or was it life as usual? I'm curious.
Speaking of curiosities, I was wondering this morning why God chooses to answer some of the requests He does. Example ... I mentioned to Him once, maybe twice, that I wanted to fly First Class when I flew. He consistently makes this happen. Just last Thursday I was booked on a flight that didn't have First Class and it was delayed. Well, the maintenance delay caused a plane swap to a jet with a First Class cabin and I got one of the seats.
Why did He say yes to that request? One that I wasn't even serious enough about to mention in prayer. Someone suggested it's because I had faith for it, but that doesn't seem to fit in this situation. I wouldn't waste a faith bullet on flying First Class because it's not that serious, truth be told. Then it was suggested that I'm His princess and He likes to spoil me. That may be true, but a castle and a prince with lots of money (just being honest) would be good spoiling, too.
I really am curious why He chose to answer that on-the-fly non-essential desire above the many other things I've spent months and years praying for. Do you have any insight? Do you have your own questions about what He picks and what gets left? I invite you to share below.
And I'm not being ungrateful, of course. I love thanking Him for things as I drift off to sleep and then realize I've started praying in tongues as I dream. Yes, dear ones, thanksgiving will take you into one of God's realms. Try it.
I bless your spirit to ask questions of The Lord and to commune until answers are downloaded.
