By Apostle Tonya
One of the most pivotal moments which increased a great hunger for intercession happened to me nearly a decade ago when the Blessed Holy Spirit led me to a book on prayer and fasting. This small book catapulted me into a season of seeking our Lord in shut-in prayer. The book, rich in testimonials, recounted a story that ofttimes I have shared with staff and would like to share with you.
The leader testified of a most profound story of faith during a service whereby the Lord sent them to minister the Gospel. On the first night of the healing service, a blind elderly woman walked to the altar seeking prayer for a miracle of eyesight. Yet, she was still not able to see. For the next few nights, the elderly woman gently walked the path of faith into the Lord’s House seeking her eyes to be opened and each night she left the altar without her miracle. It was on the last night as she walked in those faith-filled shoes that the woman finally received a miracle. Our Blessed Healer was faithful to openeth her eyes! Matthew 11:5
Ofttimes while waiting on the Lord to answer our prayers; the enemy will attack our faith by subtly placing seeds of doubt in our thoughts. We must resist him and every word contrary to the Blessed Word of God. I encourage you to remember your authority and cast down imaginations and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God and bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of the Lord Jesus. 2 Corinthians 10:5
Be faithful with your fellowship time with the Lord Jesus. Spend time with our Risen Lord reading the Scriptures to Him out-loud daily. In His Blessed Presence, you will be filled with such joy and confidence. I most cherish this special time with my Beloved, the Lamb of God.
Friends, if you are in the waiting area for healing and manifestation of the promises of thy Lord; I encourage you to read these scriptures daily to energize your faith.
