I hear every day from people who have experienced divine interventions and supernatural rescues– and the relief when you know that you’ve been delivered. You are marked forever; it’s undeniable. I think of it as God’s way of visiting men, while men are trying to tell him they don’t need him.
Have you experienced divine intervention? This is your time to testify.
Over the last two to three years, there has been a struggle for me personally, with my vision. Actually, it’s a lifelong struggle, but thanks to medical science and wonderful doctors, I’ve always been blessed to be able to see clearly and continue my business or my schooling or whatever life and general. But in the last few months my vision started to change. As I went through the process of about six surgeries in an eight month period of time, I was expecting a solution that just didn’t happen. My vision was not restored and not only that, there was a dimness like an absence of light over what I could see. As I sat with the doctor one day, I realized that everything that could be done had been done and that we still were in a place that was not healed.
On that particular day, I was scheduled to do a regular teaching through video conference. There were 15-20 people scheduled to attend, and it was my responsibility to bring the message. As I got closer to that time I realized that I could decide whether to proceed with the teaching are not; I could decide whether to just really collapse with total fear and despair, or not. I knew that I needed to speak, and to share, and to be completely transparent. I realized just how important it was to speak and to say exactly what my heart was saying. Since the word says out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.
Before the meeting, I heard one thing from what I believe was the spirit of God, because of the way it affected me. I remembered the text where the woman whose son had died and the mother answered “all as well.” And I realized that was the word of the Lord to me. During the meeting, I shared that I no matter what, faith is in place; hope is not lost. All is well. When you are being honest with him from such a deep, hidden private interior place, we reveal our true selves to the one who already knows our true selves.
I think back on that time and remember how it affected my psyche and my emotions, because I was completely, almost physically spent. I went through the holidays–Thanksgiving, Christmas and nothing changed in the beginning of the new year. Nothing changed. In February, there was an appointment for a final laser procedure. And thank God for lasers–they are blast of light, right? But I wasn’t thinking that it was going to make any difference. I really wasn’t. However, that day during a two-to-three second blast from the laser, vision in one eye was restored. Darkness was removed. I hugged the doctor, and he joined with me in celebration.
Since that day, I’ve been walking a little above the earth, not quite touching down since that time. Confidence like never before is a possession. I own it. Thank God. I’ve been walking a little above the earth, not quite touching down since that time.There are some things that only God can do despite our best intentions and greatest efforts. Just when we think we know what we need and how to obtain what we need, we realize how short we fall.
There is a glory line and a glory level that God has for, for each person, for you and his plan to cause you to arise to that level of his glory to walk in it. And to know it is beyond anything you can think. God is at work in you to will and to do of his good pleasure.
It gives him pleasure to give you the kingdom. And while he will give you material things, thank God. He will give you health as he has done for me. But it is his pleasure to give you the kingdom, to walk with him to hear his voice and to know him. And so now submit to his spirit, to what he’s doing, how he’s doing it, those that he is including and maybe using, because that can be shocking. Really.
You don’t have to be a spiritual giant; just think about it. The Lord will show you, and you may not be able to say a thing, but maybe you will. When you’re in the place of prayer and you’re coming through crisis and everything around you is shaking, trust that it is well. Fear feeds panic becomes terror quickly. It metastasizes; it goes to other places and begins to grow.
So in your heart, expand your hope. Lift up your eyes to the Hills. That’s where your help comes from and hear clearly.
And I believe this as the Lord will say to you, what he said to me: It is, well–no matter what.
