As I was reading one of my all-time favorite books of the messages of Smith Wigglesworth, I read these words, "The Lord's only purpose in taking us into the Glory is to fit us for greater usefulness in the valley!"
I write a lot about the Secret Place, the Glory of God and His manifest presence, but do you realize that's not just to get you through the day or for a feel-good experience? The more we become lost in the presence of Jesus the more of His Spirit that will be manifested in and through us. That's a place in Christ that we become so saturated, that just as Peter, our shadow can be infused with the power to heal, deliver and lead the lost to Salvation! I say it so often, but let's drive this point home! Don't be satisfied with your current spiritual condition! There's so much more and to be honest with you, the World has yet to see who Jesus is! We have not revealed Him in all of His power and Glory as He desires!! All they've seen is a weak, tired and fearful people who barely have enough faith to get out of bed, much less heal the sick, believe for impossible miracles and raise the dead!
This isn't a message of condemnation but it's a wakeup call for the Children of the Kingdom of God to stand up and become all that they were called to be and manifest all that was paid for at Calvary!!! "Greater things than I have done so shall you do!" Are you living that reality? Then don't give up!! Keep pressing in! Keep showing up, desperately seeking Him in all of His Glory! Repent of everything that has held you back and separated you from Him! Dive into His Word out of a sincere hunger to know your Father and His will for your life! Don't crawl forward, it's time to run!!!
The fear tactics of the enemy have been set in motion to control and manipulate the world and even much of the church. It's time we set in motion a faith movement that few have seen before! One that takes the promises of God and begins to show forth His love and desire to touch, deliver, heal, empower and change lives!
I'm so hungry folks!! My heart leaps in my chest with such desire to touch my Bride Groom, do His will and reveal Him to the World! I'm not where I want to be but I'm not giving up! I'm pressing through the crowd with one desire, to touch Him, to please Him and to reveal every single thing He was beaten and crucified for! The price has been paid, now let's believe His Word and preach it with signs and wonders following!! IT'S TIME!!!
Luke 24:49 (TPT) I will send the fulfillment of the Father’s promise to you, so stay here in the city until you are clothed with the mighty power of heaven.
John 14:12-14 (TPT) “I tell you this timeless truth: The person who follows me in faith, believing in me, will do the same mighty miracles that I do—even greater miracles than these because I go to be with my Father! For I will do whatever you ask me to do when you ask me in my name. And that is how the Son will show what the Father is really like and bring glory to him. Ask me anything in my name, and I will do it for you!”
Matthew 10:8 (NLT) Heal the sick, raise the dead, cure those with leprosy, and cast out demons. Give as freely as you have received!
Mark 3:13-15 (TPT) Afterward, Jesus went up on a mountainside and called to himself the men he wanted to be his close companions, so they went up with him. He appointed the Twelve, whom he named apostles. He wanted them to be continually at his side as his friends, and so that he could send them out to preach and have authority to heal the sick and to cast out demons.
