Nathan, Chris and I are on our flight home from spending several days with the Hillsong team as they recorded there new album which I highly encourage getting.... its going to be AMAZING (be out July 2010). While on the plane I've been thinking about this past year and how good it has been. We have seen so many individuals saved or healed. Others have been set on fire for God and are now making a difference on their campuses or in their church. It is so encouraging to be a part of something that is bigger then you. Every time we go out, our prayer as a team is "God we need you to show up". There are a lot of things we can do in our own strength but when it comes to making a lasting difference in someone's life we need Holy Spirit to come.... and show up has He.
We've seen so many healed. Kids with asthma who have struggled all there life completely healed right during the meeting. Metal rods in peoples bodies completely disappeared. Legs have grown out. Others have made decisions for the Lord both in our meetings and out on the street during our outreach time.
One of my favorites was the testimony in Atlanta. Last year in Atlanta (2008) during one of our outreaches a guy prayed for a man who was paralyzed from the waist down in a Target store. The man stood up in Target for the first time in years but was not completely healed at that point. But he continued to receive prayer in the weeks following until one day he woke up and walked out of the spinal clinic in Atlanta. Well this year at Atlanta (2009) he came to our conference to testify that he had given his heart to the Lord and was now playing soccer. Come on God!!!!!
We are so fortunate to see God move in peoples lives on such a consistent basis. The enemy has had us bound way to long and it is time to rise up, move forward, and bring hope to all in need.
This is what I am alive for, to see Jesus get his full reward.
Until next time,
