It has been an awesome week. You guys prayed big and the results were over the top.
Saturday was a day of surprises as the light was shining all over the place. Probably the biggest surprise was when I was chatting with someone who was sharing a fun portion of their journey, when a Word from the Lord came with such intensity, I interrupted the other person in the middle of a sentence to pour out some detailed insights into a device the devil had built in their life.
Then I had the urge to ping a friend who has some knowledge of anatomy in that particular area of the body and asked her about one tiny aspect of what I had just shared. She wrote back with some very specific details that tied in perfectly with what the other person had seen in some spiritual revelation earlier in the week.
The whole package fit together perfectly, and they were able to dismantle the works of the enemy over the next day or two. Light abounded and brought awesome freedom.
Sunday I went to Bakersfield. It has been on my bucket list for quite some time and recently has worked its way to the top of the bucket. I had a good time reconnecting with people there. I had spent some time walking with the intercessors in the city many years ago, and it was good to hear what God was doing.
While we were having lunch at a Basque restaurant, God retrieved a small bit of data I had read about Colonel Baker and his connection to Sacramento. It has been years since I read that snippet, but suddenly it was there and applied to their current battle against the spirit of premature death.
It was fun to give them very high value for almost no cost to me. God shines a lot of light with ease.
Monday and Tuesday were heavy with appointments. In each case we were dealing with long term perspective – looking into the future trying to find the way to walk a different walk. Again and again, God gave wisdom and insight far beyond the knowledge I had going into the meetings.
Wednesday I flew out for some field work. The time in the air allowed me to focus on the issue at hand and determine the starting point. I have arrived on location for consultation with the local team. We have high unanimity over embracing a strategy we have never done before. There is confidence that the path we are setting out on will be well lighted.
I notice that the number of people tracking with us spiked again this week. Looks like we have pushed through a barrier and gotten momentum again. That is exciting. I continue to be amazed at your faithfulness. I hope many of you are seeing an increase in light in your paths as well.
I will be out in the field over the next week, engaging in an extended series of what we shall euphemistically call “rumbles.” It is quite an interesting contrast. Our team has the capacity to be joyously free spirits, and we anticipate having a lot of fun along the way. At the same time, the projects we are embracing are larger than life and very serious. None of us has done this stuff before.
We have a quiet confidence based on the accumulated momentum from the light prayers that have been going on for months now. The Kingdom of God will be established.
Thanks so much for your partnership with us in these grand adventures.
