A year ago in late spring the Lord told me He wanted me to go to Israel with a trip my pastor was planning. The deposit was due by August 2018. Because my husband would be going also the deposit would of course be double. $1,000 by August that I didn’t have. But that’s not stopped God before. I remember the Lord telling me that it didn’t matter what my bank account looked like, pay the deposit no matter what, even if it left me with pennies in my account. Well, many unexpected and costly expenses occurred on top of someone messing up payroll and our pay check for a specific job was short almost $1,000 by error that took months to rectify (no doubt the enemy trying to keep me from the trip). But when the time came and I made the deposit, wouldn’t you know, I had next to nothing left because of it. It was a lean month. But I made the deposit by faith.
Paying for the trip and getting passports etc was ALL an ordeal of spiritual warfare. Everything was an eleventh hour experience. But guess what...
We obeyed no matter what it looked like or how hard it was. And I went on that trip and it was wonderful. It was more gorgeous to my soul than I ever could’ve known! But even better, I received something powerful on that trip that is deeply tied to the call of God to heal on my life. Healing can look a lot of different ways. It can be accomplished through better health and nutrition. It can happen with exhortation, love, encouragement, prayer may be another avenue to healing virtue. But I also have the gift of creative miracles and I’ve known this a very long time. On this trip this particular gift was activated and the anointing was released. I got keys to my destiny at the healing Pool of Bathsaeda. It was amazing and more than I could’ve ever expected![
At the Pool of Bathsaeda
What has God promises you or told you? What are you doing to stay on course to get there or to receive?
Do not waiver! Do not abandon ship! Do not dock or harbor when God has spoken—he will handle it!
It may not look good.
It may not be pretty, but if Jesus is in it the fruit will be abundant and the intimacy sweet!
Don’t give up!
That was for someone! If it’s you grab hold! Be encouraged! Be decided! ~Nicole
“After this there was a feast of the Jews, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. 2 Now there is in Jerusalem by the Sheep Gate a pool, which is called in Hebrew, [a]Bethesda, having five porches. 3 In these lay a great multitude of sick people, blind, lame, [b]paralyzed, [c]waiting for the moving of the water.” Matthew 5:1-3
