As well as the outrageous blessing God poured out during these 3 weeks for miracles and healings, humbling enough to be on the end of the divine power-cable: there was, of course, the ultra-blessing and humbling as one of Ana Beiba’s dreams was fulfilled. Like all rightly-aggressive Kingdom builders, she’s got more dreams in her spirit, and I hope that I might be a part of seeing God fulfil those for her, too….I’ll never forget the her reaction (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t4mF-TrAiac), and that memory will stay with me until I stand before my Heavenly Dad, and His awesome Son….
And, of course, Dario, Siloe, the multiple salvations at the finca on Sunday: to be allowed ‘inside access’ to Dario’s life, family, and home, is a privilege I will never forget, and one that will develop and grow as the years go on. Wilmar will plant at least one church in that barrio, maybe, God willing, more. Who knows what God has in store for the violent lives of many of the people there. When the Presence of God hit the room in the widow’s house last Thursday, we were all left totally breathless and awed by what God did. I posted a quote on Facebook from Bill Johnson about fear, yesterday:
- ‘Fear is a self fulfilling prophecy. It invites the very thing you are afraid of.’
When Dario said to Wilmar that he could trust me, it was because, he said, that I wasn’t afraid him, when 99% of other people are. That blew me away, and I’m thankful to God, that from a relatively fearful family, God’s changed – and is still changing – my life. I real LIKE my new friend!
Thank you, thank you, thank you God: thank you Jesus: and thank you Holy Spirit for your Presence, even in a siccario house. Where would Jesus be, if her were still walking around on earth? In places JUST like that…..
