Is it possible to place a demand upon faith? Are we able to reach out for Jesus as the woman in our story did and receive healing?

Let’s unpack this today, shall we?

I’m sure you already know the answers to these questions. But how do we actually go about placing a demand upon our faith in a practical sense. You know I’m all about the practical. Tell me how….

Remember I shared in earlier posts that this woman was desperate? Well, that is how I would describe the mindset of those who are in absolute belief. Walking with Jesus and reading the Word is how our mind is transformed.

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will. —Romans 12:2

When we begin to BELIEVE the Word and choose to reject the lies and the liar, that process loosens the grip of the devils. And as we learn to take thoughts captive to Christ, we then dictate our thoughts, our belief systems, our truth.

We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. — 2 Corinthians 10:5

The process is different for every person. Some people languish in the world’s thought patterns and others seem to jump right in. Now I will also say here, sometimes Jesus does whatever He wants. He heals people instantly, He heals alongside physicians, He will heal through a process.

My experience is that He mostly heals through a process because Jesus wants me to learn a number of lessons along the way.

The lessons:

  • Developing my faith and intimacy with the Healer.
  • Grabbing with a tight grip and in full faith to scriptures. Looking up passages. Listening to them on YouTube at night. Reading them, praying them, reciting them. BELIEVING THEM.
    Leaning to pray with faith. This is learning to issue decrees, edits and engaging the angelic realm
  • Learning what demon I might be up against and how to bind it.
  • What my responsibility is in the natural. Healthy eating, physician treatment after praying for revelation.

So much of my supernatural healings, and there have been a number of them, involved a process which contained different lessons. These are just a few that rattled off the top of my head.

Receiving healing is possible. I think on Monday, I’ll pop a video in here and share a few of my supernatural healing stories. And one that wasn’t.

BTW, one of the most powerful tools of the Kingdom is TESTIMONY. My testimony, the testimony of others, becomes a springboard that can launch you into the same experience. THAT’s how we build our faith.

The disciples watched Jesus. This built their faith. He sent them out two by two and they began to do the same as Jesus. And their faith became so powerful for a few of them that we find this miraculous account in the Word:

The apostles performed many signs and wonders among the people. And all the believers used to meet together in Solomon’s Colonnade. No one else dared join them, even though they were highly regarded by the people. Nevertheless, more and more men and women believed in the Lord and were added to their number. As a result, people brought the sick into the streets and laid them on beds and mats so that at least Peter’s shadow might fall on some of them as he passed by. —Acts 5: 12-15

THIS is what is available to those who believe!  Hallelujah! Love and hugs, Lynn

And Jesus said to him, “‘If you can’! All things are possible for one who believes.” — Mark 9:23 ESV

Pursuance of His Presence

Pursuit of Presence - Everyday Practices To Experiential and Supernatural Faith.

Pursuit Of PresenceHello, a few days ago during my prayer time, I felt as though the Holy Spirit was asking me to step into a new season of ministry. God began to show me how, through the years, I’ve experienced growth in my faith life. I also began to recall the years and lessons that have led me to one purpose for my life:

The Pursuit of His Presence

I am now nearing an age in life where my children are grown and my faith is maturing. The Lord spoke to my heart, “Lynn, it’s time to see yourself as a mother.”

Wow, interesting. The Holy Spirit then led me to understand how so many people, many believers, feel as though they didn’t have a strong spiritual mother or father. That they lacked spiritual training, prayer covering and love that comes from a mom or dad. So, the Lord has called me to step into this place, as a mother in the body of Christ.

I do this with great hesitation and completely leaning on the Lord. I assure you that I am far from having everything figured out about God and faith. I still fail. I fall down. I disappoint myself and I wrangle with sin. Yet, I have learned so much about how to live in the Presence of God. Every day. I have discovered freedom, Open Heavens, discernment, wisdom, peace, joy and righteousness. I have discovered how to defeat the demonic and to rise above betrayal, emotional pain and physical pain.

I’m convinced that I am to simply share my stories and experiences in order to encourage, train and equip others on the path behind me. It is my greatest hope that through my victories and learning via my mistakes that others will not make damaging detours from God’s plan but will instead step fully into His divine identity and calling for life on earth.

Will you join me? Will you walk through this recap and share your own wisdom with me? Will you share with others, who one day, stop here to learn how to live the John 10:10 promise?

So, the next series of posts will cover what I call, “The Practices of Vibrant Faith.” These are some common faith experiences and practices that have led me closer to the heart of God.

But before we get to those, I think we should consider, why. And, what is the reward, the benefit the take away for a human being to pursue God’s Presence? What does it mean or look, feel like to attain the Presence of God. What is ordinary living with and/or without the Presence of God?

So, next post, I will share the answers to these questions. Today, please share with me, why do you pursue God?

In His mercy and love, Lynn
