Matthew 10:7-8

As you go, preach, saying, "the kingdom of heaven is at hand."
Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.

Led by the Spirit--no more seizures

Many times in life we want crystal clear direction from the Lord. Well, how many know that's not usually how God does things. He calls us to walk in faith and obedience.

A few days ago we we're in one of our new neighborhoods and we began to share the Gospel with a guy out on the sidewalk. He had a surprised look on his face as he said "you guys talked with me a few weeks ago at a shopping center." We then began to recognize him and Renee remebered the lion logo on his Jacket.

Wow, we we're able to preach the kingdom to him and say "what are the odds we would bump into you again." He knew God was trying to get his attention. He was very convicted and we gave him our # again.

A few days later we we're in a new neighborhood banging on a few doors. No one was real receptive until this one home.

An older woman came to the door and invited us right in, she was thrilled to receive us. We ministered to her and prayed God would heal her arthritus. She began to say " I remember you now, you prayed for my niece months ago at a shopping center". Her niece had some health problems including frequent seizures. Renee and Terry prayed for her that day, it was at least six months ago.

Well, she said her neice "HADN'T HAD ONE SEIZURE SINCE THEY PRAYED FOR HER"!!!!Thank you Jesus!!

There have been a few more times where we have ministered to people and then coincidently ministered again across town to them. This really encourages me that God is leading us to accomplish His will as we are obedient and step out in faith.

"We walk by faith and not by sight" to accomplish His will not our own agenda.
