Why you might be going through hell


Last week was a really hard week. It was like the devil launched everything at me from hell that he possibly could. I told Larry last Wednesday that I felt blessed to still be ALIVE. One thing that was really under assault was my physical body, and with no exaggeration there were days I just thought about just driving to the ER and checking in. But I was too busy cleaning up colossal messes. I live under a fair amount of pressure all the time with the demands of the life and ministry but I haven't been this much under pressure in a long time. 

At the same time I was preparing to preach on Sunday at Celebration and the topic in our current six week series, "Anything is Possible," was on healing. That  morning all of heaven came down in our church and not only did many miracle healings occur, but salvations did too.  Reports are still coming in!



Leg amputations cancelled for a man named David. Chronic back problems that a woman named Susan had for YEARS, gone!! A persistent leg problem - GONE as church member Mike Molinari felt the power of God shoot through his leg!!  A Celebrator named Alex Rivera reports on his Facebook status: "During the time I waited in the prayer line for healing I said, Lord there are so many things I need healed. The Holy Spirit, responded, 'do I have limits?' Today I already feel the difference in my shoulder, hip, and knees." 

And the reports just keep coming. 

I was prayed for as well, and feel an amazing difference this week in my own body, and stress level. I have struggled with high blood pressure for a while, and since Sunday, it has been in normal range every day!!! (It's my habit to check it at home each morning when I wake up.)

As I was in prayer last night I realized once again that there is a price to be paid when God's power moves like this. It is customary for great attacks to occur right before a great outpouring.

Somebody reading this needs to hear that today! If you're feeling like you might need to check into the hospital, or that you might have a meltdown...WHAT IS GOD GETTING READY TO DO?? Hold steady!!!
