More than a Conqueror....

Well, I am breathing a whole lot easier today!
I did the teaching in Oshawa last night. God was very good, as I knew He would was me I was worried about!
The night before, I had a soul dream all about not being prepared, and visiting the whole night and ending the eve. without teaching them a thing.
That was not the best way to start the day yesterday....I felt quite a bit of stress....Like I said before, Fear of man. I am not sure that I will ever come to a place where something like that does not cause me some level of stress or concern; but I am determined to never let it get in the way of doing what God asks of me. I have to say that once we were on the way to Oshawa, most of the stress was gone.

The whole thing went very well, some very good feedback...and it was so cool to see lives touched when they realized what their dreams meant. There were a few challenges, one being the public sharing of a few dreams that were actually pretty personal in nature. God was gracous in helping me deliver accurate interpretations that did't leave any one feeling too vulnerable. That was actually one of my concerns going, because I know that when someone has no idea what their dream means, they don't consider that it may be about something that would be better shared privately. God enabled me to share two possible ways to take the dream, and down played the personal one...but as soon as I said it, I knew that was it, and so did the dreamer.

Mark was very supportive, he even said he'd learned a thing or two...that might have been just to make me feel good!
It was good I brought him too, when we were running out of time, and they all had so much more they wanted input on, we offered my email address...they were having an awful time with the spelling of our last name....we might have been there all night, had Mark not simply suggested that I write it on the white board for them! See, what would I have done without him? Never even occured to me! Yes the blond hair is real!

I have to say...the best part for me personnally, was on the way home....knowing the kind of things that the enemy bombarded me with prior to doing the teaching; and knowing that God was faithful...and we did it! No matter how it had turned out, we did it, and for me that is a huge victory! I have a thing about me, because the enemy has taken such blows at me all of my life, I ABSOLUTELY LOVE overcoming! All I need to know is that it is him that is causing the attack, and I am more determined than ever to be victorious for Jesus' sake. I don't think that is a prideful thing, because I really know I might be an overcomer to some degree without Jesus, but because of Him, I am "MORE THAN A CONQUEROR"!!!! I LOVE being more than a conqueror! I really get a kick out of once again...THANK-YOU FATHER, YOU ARE ALWAYS SO FAITHFUL TO ME, AND I LOVE THAT WE DID THIS TOGETHER!!

Yep...I love being on the "Winning Side". We are MORE than CONQUERORS, because of Jesus! We were all praying for you and are so happy to hear the good report. Can't wait to see what other oppertunities God brings your way...

Jen - I'm thrilled about your report from Oshawa. We are More than Conqueros! My class name at bible college was Nikao, which mean "conqueror". Congratulations you are a NIKAO.

Romans 8:37-39 " In all these things we are more than conquerors, through him who loved us. I am convinced that niether death ,nor life,neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to spearate us from the love of God that in is Christ Jesus our Lord."

Over a year ago , I felt very strongly that you would be ministering (beyond just our church) in the area of God's will and dreams. Clearily God has given you unusual insight into these areas. I anticipate that more wonderful reports will be coming!!

Be blessed in all that God has for you.

So happy for you Jen! You are an overcomer. Keep on believing for more open doors.


Jen said...

Thank you everyone for your prayers, you are all a part of this victory, because you partnered with me in prayer. THANK YOU...I very much felt the effects of your support and your prayers!
Together we are all conquerors!
