For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God!
Dear Beloved Friends,
We are past the half way mark of the Fall Internership full of excitement of what God has done and is doing. We have seen healings: bones spurs in the foot, back pain, neck pain, rotator cuff, knee, ankle, and many emotional healings. Our team is very close and very hungry.
We found out we are pregnant last month and on the 17th will get to hear this little ones heart beat. Sarah is doing great. She is tired and nauseas, but glowing! Our laptop bit the dust soon after finding out. It is great to see God work though! He provided a new computer that suits us better. With our addition we have decided to go on a journey to find a bigger home. Libby will turn 5 the 21st of this month Sarah is working hard trying to plan a fun party for her this year! We are still planning to adopt, but things are on hold until after we move.
We have teams called Prayer Strike teams. Their goal is to develop and train prayer strike teams and to deploy them to spiritually dark and resistant regions of the world, where our teams engage in concentrated worship, prayer, and fasting for spiritual breakthrough; for justice to be established; and for the salvation of souls. During these “strikes,” they join with and support the ministry of local churches through prayer, just as the church in Rome labored with Paul in prayer: “Now I beg you, brethren, through the Lord Jesus Christ, and through the love of the Spirit, that you strive together with me in prayers for me . . .” (Rom. 15:30).
As I said last month, developing the truth of our spiritual identity is a process and we need to seek after it. One of the most significant and foundational truths of our identity in Christ is our sonship/daughtership. The key through Paul’s understanding to walking in the Spirit was the revelation of sonship. By affirming who we are in Christ would liberate us from the bondage of a corrupt and fallen world. Victory is found through identifying with the truth of our weakness as we are confined to this world, while trusting God to give us the power and comfort of the Holy Spirit. Through the Spirit we are affirmed in sonship and granted the authority to partner with Him in intercession and governing the earth, fulfilling our eternal inheritance. God has granted full access and authority to the things of His Spirit and Kingdom to his sons and daughters. It is the plan of darkness to keep this truth from the people of God. Paul exhorts us, that nothing is able to withstand the destiny of the children of God being manifested in the earth (Romans 8:37-39)!
