I have suggested through out many blogs that the language of coincidence is one of the ways God speaks to us … as I step up and out I am becoming more and more convinced of this …
I was at the shopping centre Thursday 5th May 2011 buying my youngest some shoes at Myers. I could not find a single person to sell them to me … I wandered about when I eventually found a cashier and wandered over.
There was a Mum of three children all under the age of 3 or 4 years … one in a pram, one walking and the youngest was 8 weeks old in a baby sling. The toddler in the pram had very red cheeks. I asked if it was teeth and was told no she was a rosy cheeked girl, but that even so she was teething and they had been having a dreadful time of it, with four teeth coming through all together.
I quickly told the Mum about my ballet school friend whose little boy was teething and was not sleeping and we prayed and he slept through from that time on (see links below for stories) and with that testimony offered I suggested I pray.
She agreed, and I prayed for her daughter who went very quiet while she gazed into my eyes. I finished praying, wished her well and went to get the shoes.
While I had been praying the sales assistant had got the right size shoes for M, we tried them on and as we chatted at the cash register I offered to pray for her too, mentioning how well she was handling the shop sales with no staff … she readily agreed saying she had bought a house and the settlement had been held up and that she was very very stressed … I took her hand and prayed. She felt great peace. I then mentioned a friend who I had taught to go to her God space and walked her through a simple exercise for her to access God. She went straight to that place of peace and I suggested that when she got anxious she go to that place, but in the meantime the settlement would happen and the doors to her destiny would open, and as I prayed for this I explained how doors of destiny had opened last year over and over again for people that I had prayed for. She thanked me saying how calm she felt and I wandered off to complete my shop and go home.
On the way out of the complex I saw a huge sale at a major electrical store. I felt to go in and was blessed with an amazing purchase of something I had wanted for many years, after which my son and I went home.
Later that day, I popped back up to the electrical store to confirm an issue with the purchase, not being able to get through on the phone lines. I spoke to the sales person and he mentioned he was desperate for a coffee, so while he sorted a few issues out for me, I went and got him a coffee … well the girl that made his coffee was lovely and I felt to offer to pray for her … she agreed and as I took her hand and prayed I received a word of knowledge … there was something about a house for her. I asked if that meant anything to her … she responded stating she wanted to move out … another house issue … 2 in one day … coincidental!
I prayed telling her the open doors to destiny testimony … I know I have used that testimony many times over it is a great precedent to ask God to do again and again … She thanked me for the prayer saying she felt something and I took the coffee back to the sales person and went on my way.
The house issue was an interesting one. I went home and talked to God about it and I felt to pray that I would settle well into my new spiritual home, that nothing would stop me from finding my place in the Body of Christ … and yet now as I write about the day I realise it has far more reaching consequences … I think many of us are moving … we may not be actually selling our homes, although many people I know are in that process, but I think that many of us in the Body of Christ are being called to move … if not homes, then to just move … move on, move out, move up, move forward … just move and then He can start to steer us …
I actually think He is calling us all to move out … to take it out, to let Him out of us … for we are a store house of miracles waiting to be released … if only we would go out and let go, give away what we have … we have had plenty of time to grow up … now it is time to move … OUT!
I feel it is time for the Body of Christ to grow up. Stop allowing issues to block, acknowledge that we are old enough, have enough and know enough, because all we really need to know is Christ in us … and then out we go, taking Him with us, and where ever we go will always be “home” for … “home is where the heart is” … and I happen to believe that God’s heart is on the streets of Melbourne … or on the streets of your neighbourhood … if our heart is in His heart and His heart is in our heart and our home is where the heart is then our home is out there on the streets … AS WE GO … so lets move out with God because …
God is good!
