Acts 5:15, 16 "…so that they brought the sick out into the streets and laid them on beds and couches, that at least the shadow of Peter passing by might fall on some of them. Also a multitude gathered from the surrounding cities to Jerusalem, bringing sick people and those who were tormented by unclean spirits, and they were all healed." It was miracles, signs and wonders. It was the birthing of the New Testament church. It is preaching and teaching the gospel, healing every sickness and disease among the people. A great example of Dunamis is Peter in Acts 5.
I was in worship, and I had a vision of people on top of a mountain, and I heard God say, "I am positioning my people on the mountain tops." I instantly knew in what was being revealed that He desired to release elevation to the body of Christ. He proceeded to reveal that it would not be a gradual climb. I did not witness people climbing the mountain. I saw people automatically positioned on the top of the mountain. The Spirit was revealing that people didn't have to climb the mountain, but that He was getting ready to assign instant elevation. I saw people standing on the mountaintops shouting out and exalting the name of Jesus.
Does God always answer our prayers? Jesus said, "Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks, it will be opened"(Matt. 7:7-8).He even promised,"If you ask anything in My name, I will do it" (John 14:14).Jesus also gave a parable that had as its purpose that we should keep on praying and never give up (Luke 18:1-8). The reason we should keep praying and never give up is because God doesn't always answer our prayers immediately. What is more, we get to know God and His ways by spending more time with Him.
Therefore do not worry, saying, "What shall we eat?" or "What shall we drink?" or "What shall we wear?" For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Matthew 6:31–33 When I talk about not worrying and keeping our eyes on Jesus, some people think that I am not being practical. Beloved, you can worry all you like about your current crisis, but it will not improve or change your situation one bit. Please understand that I am not making light of what you are going through. I am just offering you the best solution I know that works.
Worship warfare is a very delicate subject for the battle wages and is strong against us when we are pressing in to worship the King! The enemy wants us to keep our eyes on the battle and because it is so strong it feels like we are not making headway even into His presence. Yes, you are being wrapped up in the fight, but the battle is not ours but it is the Lord's. We must keep our eyes on Him and not the battle and worship Him! He is our Captain and He leads us through the war zone as we take the land! As a worship intercessor, I have been greatly hindered for many years pressing in to take the land. I remember once in the middle of worship wrapped in the war surrounding it that I could not break through even to worship the Lord.
Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known(1 Corinthians 13:12 NIV). I have often said, "Share your dreams with me, and I will not only tell you who you are now, but who you are destined to become." Similar to the powers of our imagination, dreaming is a universal human phenomenon uniting people across barriers of age, gender, racial background, social differences, and historical circumstances. Dreams are our inner man at work revealing our nature to us. "I never dream!" "I never remember my dreams!" These are two very common fallacies that people assume.
I remember the early years of being born again. I was a Christian my whole life but didn't become born again till my early twenties. In those early years people in the church and just many Christians in general were so discouraging and critical. But God wasn't like them. God was always encouraging and for you. If it wasn't for God being so encouraging and not like them I probably wouldn't have lasted in Christianity. If God was anything like other Christians acted I wouldn't have wanted anything to do with Him.
The very first thing I did was shatter a glass on the bathroom floor Saturday morning. I'm talking pre-coffee, pre-pants, pre-everything. Glass everywhere. For a millisecond I almost got mad, but I caught myself. Why? Because I had a major shift in perspective the night before that helped me avoid the "I'm such an idiot and I wonder why Lacie set this booby trap" thought. Have you heard of a guy named Rob Bell? He's an author, speaker, previous pastor; most famous, at least in my sphere, for writing Velvet Elvis and the "controversial" Love Wins. He is undeniably one of the best communicators I've listened to, regardless of your opinions of his theology.
The Lord showed me something interesting today. There are several men and women in the bible who hid from Gods calling. There's a prophet in the Old Testament named Jonah. The Lord told Jonah to go to the city of Nineveh to prophesy against it because of their great wickedness. Jonah refused to go and went from the presence of the Lord on his own way. He got on a ship in Jaffa that was going to Tarshish, which geographically is in the opposite direction of where the Lord told him to go. As he walked out of Gods will, he not only put his own life in jeopardy, but also the men in the boat as well as the people in Nineveh.
Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. Colossians 3:2 NIV It is time to renew your mind through the Holy Spirit and not think logically. The Lord is moving beyond your natural thoughts, and your solution is already being released from Heaven. It will be important to come into agreement with the plans and thoughts of the Lord that are higher than our own. Watch as the Lord is sending wisdom and instructions from Heaven. The Spirit of Wisdom is being released, and it will allow you to come into alignment with the Lord's plans that are being opened starting this month. There are gold mines that will be opened as you receive the Spirit of Wisdom.
