So what is 'normal'?
Updated: Mar 1
It's been less than 'normal' since the beginning of 2020. I've been dealing with some spiritual attacks but you'd think the demons would know that that only pushes me closer to Yeshua / Jesus. So if I've you've wondering why there hasn't been much activity lately coming from me, generally speaking, that's why. But fear not, I'm coming back to destroy the works of the devil (1 John 3:8).
The good news is that during my down time I've been spending more time in focused prayer trying to connect to the heart of Yahweh / God and spending more time in deeper bible study. I'm sure you can guess my sensitivity to the Ruach haKodesh / Holy Spirit has increased. Who would of thunk right? </insert sarcasm/>
So get this - today I'm at Wal-mart and as I often do, if I have time, I'll pray over those that have some visible affliction. So I run into this lady, whom I'll call Sheila, who is in one of those motorized carts. She says I can pray over her as she has Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) which is a form of chronic pain which affects her legs.
Mat 9:35 And יהושע went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their congregations, and proclaiming the Good News of the reign, and healing every disease and every bodily weakness among the people. 36 And having seen the crowds, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, as sheep having no shepherd. 37 Then He said to His taught ones, “The harvest truly is great, but the workers are few.
I tell her I need to listen to see if Yeshua / Jesus wants to do this any particular way. I get this vision of some people that were trapped in some type of net hanging from a tree. So I tell her this as I'm assuming somebody in her generational line either got caught in a trap or trapped somebody. She states one of her relatives was in a war so that was entirely possible.
I was so happy at this point that she didn't buggy away from me but allowed Yeshua / Jesus to minister to her. Some people tend to want to keep Yeshua / Jesus 'in a box' so they can manage their expectations but she let her faith rise. So I tell her that we are going to do some prayer renunciations and if she senses anything going on to let me know.
As we are doing prayer renunciations she tells me she starts feeling something in her legs. I tell her that's the Ruach haKodesh / Holy Spirit.
When we finish I ask her how would she know if something happened? She said if she could walk she would know. I didn't want her to do anything more than what she was comfortable with but she got out of the buggy . . . AND THEN SHE WALKED!!! She said it was the most she has walked in 3 years. She was only be able walk 3 steps before being unable to walk anymore. Praise Yeshua / Jesus!
Soo . . . let me ask you? What is 'normal'? I know people look at those that walk in the spiritual gifts like we are abnormal but isn't that kind of backwards? If we are living by the Bible and have a vibrant relationship with Yeshua / Jesus, miracles should be normal. That doesn't mean they'll always happen when we want them to. Sometimes we do have to overcome and believe even if life doesn't happen the way we want it to.
I'll say lastly sometimes generic prayers don't cut it. Of course sometimes they do BUT sometimes satan has a legal right to attack us. That's where deliverance / sanctification ministry comes in. Sometimes we have to allow the Ruach haKodesh / Holy Spirit to show us how to get more specific in prayer - whether that's dealing with generational curses, soul fragments, witchcraft, or whatever it may be.
But again, miracles should be 'normal'. We should be exuding His Presence - as that's what the world needs.
