More Stretching....

Why is it, when we think one thing....God is really doing another?

Take "reformation"...I am concentrating on one area that I want victory over. An emotional, mental and spiritual issue, made manifest in flesh. I want and need ALL of the fruit of the Spirit effectively at work in my life to be and do all that He is asking...including the biggy (for me) self control. This flows over into every discipline of my life like...prayer, fasting, disciplined consistant studying of the word...just to name a few.

So, as I am concentrating on this issue...the Lord comes through another door...(James Goll refers to this attribute of God as "Jehovah SNEAKY")...and decides I need another stretching. A whole other area! Like I don't have enough going on!

In the summer I was asked to join a friend to do dream interpretation along side a prophetic team, at an outreach in Oshawa. I was stretched....but God was so faithful...and I had a BLAST! It was amazing to watch grown men break down in tears as we gave interpretations that revealed God's love for them.
God used that to give me an excitement for prophetic evangelism.

This week I was contacted by the same friend and asked to help with the dream part of a prophetic course she was teaching.
I said yes because I knew I was to do it...got the details ...got off the phone and THEN let it hit me. AM I CRAZY!!!! Lot's of fear of man popping up all over the place....BUT I know God wants me to do this, therefore I know He will be very faithful....BUT I will be very glad when it is over with.

It's actually a small "hungry" group who have already got all the background on God speaking through dreams; I just need to do a little bit more teaching, and walk them through some interpreting. It's all realy just a precursor to wet their appetites the next time a Streams course comes through. Sounds simple....but I will be shaking in my boots!
I guess I should look at it that God has been gracious enough to let me teach a small group and not a couple hundred. THAT WOULD BE A STRETCH!

OK God, I told you "what ever, where ever, when ever"....now HHHEEELLLPPP!!!!

I'm Very excited for you Jen!!

You are more than capable. You love God and listen to Him. You love people and hear more than just their words - you also listen to their hearts. So you are just the right person for this job as it is about them connecting with the voice,heart and will of God. When you step into this - your fear will be set aside and you'll quickly be in the "zone".

You have a Wonderful and Trustworthy heart....I don't trust easily BUT I definately Trust YOU!!
