Over the summer, something shifted in me. I asked for it. “God, where are You in me? Come back to life here in me so I know You deeper that ever.”
He responds when we ask.
He is responding right now – moving on your behalf on the things you have requested for your good.
God has anointed us with the Holy Spirit for a reason: so that impossible situations will bow the knee to Jesus. All too often, we totally underestimate what God wants to do for us.
Jesus gave us authority over demons, sickness, disease and darkness so we could bring His reality to earth right now. And you know what? I’ve only been at this really big-bizarre-radical praying for a little over a month, but I’m already seeing radical answers. (Who would’ve thought my son would receive a call like that? or, one of girls would be daily performing on that level? God, thank You-keep with me in pouring crazy-unfathomable love and Your stamina into them. Give them Your victory through Your authority there).
I claimed the promise from Psalm 91:15, and God has been honoring me. It feels weird and strange and undeserved, but God said He wanted to do it, and He is…
…and I like it. (Thank You, Father.)
I’ve claimed His promise to “answer me and show me great and mighty things that I don’t know.” Jeremiah 33:3 – and boy, has He ever. Things I could never have imagined to pray for have been popping out of the woodwork. (Thank You, Father – that’s all You!)
So. what kind of radical have you been sitting on? What are you waiting for God Almighty to do in your life? Have you asked? Have you asked out loud, with authority, and told satan that he’s been bounced out of your situation? That he is the enemy and has no jurisdiction here?
What are you believing God for? What do you need to start praying radical prayers about? Could it be:
* Your finances?
* Your job?
* Opportunity or promotion?
* Favor with specific people?
* Vindication from false accusations?
* Healing of relationships?
* Reversal of an unjust situation?
Ask your Maker to arrive in all the places that are not well in your life – be right there where the wounded place is – where it is ugly and uncomfortable.
Sit in the loss and the trial that has worn you down.
Know that there is some serious training going on in you. The flames that are scarring you, are the flames that the Holy Spirit is using to purify and lift you out – because you had the guts to whisper out loud to ask Him to show up. You’re peering under the smoke and allowing yourself to see what He’s really moving in your behalf.
Yes, He is moving.
He is really moving on your behalf.
Ask for it.
Trust His ways.
