Travailing in the Spirit

by Apostle Tonya

Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness: thou hast enlarged me when I was in distress; have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer.  Psalm 4:1

Before thy Lord Jesus would release me to return to public ministry with the new ministry that He had given to me; the enemy’s plot to destroy my legs had to be overcome in intercession.  

For a few years, a wave of prophets entered into my life and many with the same Word from the Lord God:  “The enemy is trying to cripple you!”  These warnings from Heaven released to the Prophets were given to me before the Lord began to grace me with dreams seeing Him use me.  Father hid this part of my ministry from me for a time. 

Then, the Word of the Lord came again to me as I was in the midst of a transition relocating from my native, New York.  It would be the last Prophetic warning about my legs that I would receive from the Lord.  The prophetic word came with immediate instructions on how to consecrate for seven days.  

The thief had cometh. 

I had no fear.  Thy Holy Spirit was faithful to filleth me with indomitable faith.  The plot to confine me to a wheelchair and steal the Ancient of Days Plan to use my legs and body supernaturally for His Glory was overcome!  The Lord Jesus nailed it to the cross: satan could no longer pick it back up!  

But know that the Lord hath set apart him that is godly for himself: the Lord will hear when I call unto him.  Psalm 4:3

Our foremother Hannah travailed as written in the Holy Bible, in the First Book of Samuel, chapter one, verses 12 through 15.  For quite a few years, I studied Hannah’s life and it produced within me a deep hunger for birthing the Lord’s promises for the Body of Christ and myself.  As written in Isaiah 66:7-9, thy Lord cometh on His Children with grace and strength to birth His Will and Plans.  It was submission and travailing before our Beloved Lion of Judah that destroyed the works of darkness and kept The Plan.  Proverbs 28:1

When the Holy Spirit giveth us the grace to travail in prayer we must yield to our Dear Comforter, offer Him our sacrifices and trust Him.  Romans 8:26-27. 

Be encouraged in the Lord.  The Lion of Judah, our Beloved Jesus won it all at the Cross! Amen.
