What we experienced was God´s amazing power in and through us. And it was real. Real. Everyday. Not because we are special. No. Because God IS! He is true. He is faithful. He can use you whenever where-ever! Are you open? Ready?
Totally God!!!Our time was blessed in Guatemala. We met the most incredible people, and God used them to richly bless our lives, to speak into our lives and to help raise us up as true Sons of God. Amen! Praise be to God.This is number 2 for me, in Guatemala. Now until now, for the past couple of months, I have been praying for a mentor, specifically for this year. It is truely difficult, but I wanted and needed one. I know God is my Father, and He fathers me, and therefor I have everything I need. But, as inspiritual as I was and is, I wanted a mentor. So God provided. Ben. Since meeting him last year, I have been touched by how he does thing, his attitude, his love for all, but most of all his zeal for God!! I wanted to have at least some of that in my life, more and more, to be alive, not out of my power, but out of Gods' power. So thats were it all got interesting...We worked hard, from early till late. He took me literally under his wing, and I took in everything that he showed me. His knowlegde on physical work, and his spiritual knowlegde! One day we even went to a woman who doesnt belong to Christ, and we worked in her apartment. It was definitel a spiritual battle that day. I can still remember the presence of what was in that house...creepy...but I had a new image in my head...in my mind, in my spirit...and it goes with GREATER IS HE THAT IS IN ME, THAN HE THAT IS IN THE WORLD!!! I saw my body, but inside it is totally filled with the Spirit, with is like a rock!!! Nothing can penetrate!! Save!! No gaps!! With that in mind I could stay and work and pray and see how God can work, how amazingly it is!!!Change. We all need change. If we arent changed, then are we really saved? If you only said a 2min prayer, but didnt change your lifestyle, then was it real? Did you do it with Gods' power, or your own? Think about it. Or leave it. I had to, and it is hard. But God is full of mercy, grace and He is LOVE!!! Do you trust this? Do you trust Him?hehehe... a bit different than what I intended, but it is necesary!! I pray that you may kow that no matter where you are, that God is there, waiting for you. Literally always there. Mind blowing. The God of the universe is waiting for you to stand up, go out on His word and act on it!! Go!!! Trust him!!!Amen!!!I was baptised this year as well, because, just because! Because of His truth in my life. Because of word. Because of obedience. Because I want the super natural. To live in the Spirit, every second is Super natural!!!To God be all the glory!!!
India - a time where we can only look back upon and praise GOD!!!We started off in India with a bang. We worked from 5:30am till about 11am, and then we had some time for biblestudy.After that we worked out a program for the kids, and then we had a whole day of interaction with the kids. That was definitely my highlight!!!I loved everything that had to do with the kids.We prayed alot for money to bless them, and though we didn't even had enough money to stay there, we were blessed by God with about R50 000!!!Praise be to God!!!ONLY HIM!! HIS NAME BE GLORIFIED!!!I can't tell you it happened, but I only know one thing. God is in control, and He can use anybody and anything for his purposes and for His glory!!!We serve an awesome God!!With this short blog I just want to remind myself and you at home on Luk 17:11 - 17. This is a piece where Jesus heals 10 lepers, but only 1 leper came back and praised Jesus for doing it. Jesus' response was : "didn't I heal 10 men? Where are the other 9? Has only one returned to give glory to God except this foreigner?"
God has such an awesome way of rewarding you...for just nothing...just because He can and want to!
