Romania – sickness and faith 

Anyone else need healing tonight? I’m the sickest I can remember being in a long time with what must be some sort of intense bronchitis and my lungs feel as though they are on fire and exploding from within with each cough. We have loads of people praying for our team and I’m so grateful. Prayer is powerful! God still heals. His method is not predictable but His purpose is still in all things and circumstances.

Some of my Romanian medicines

I rejoice in the One that makes me well. Even when my eyes can’t see the healing yet, I know it’s coming. And I know it is still well with me because I am His. The waves and wind still know His name. The storm in my body that has attempted to come against His work in and through me will not prevail. My victory is in Him and I will seek His purpose and face as I wait for healing. In prayer just now He spoke to me through this scripture:

“Do you not know? Have you not heard? Has it not been told you from the beginning? Have you not understood since the earth was founded? He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth, and its people are like grasshoppers. He stretches out the heavens like a canopy, and spreads them out like a tent to live in. He brings princes to naught and reduces the rulers of this world to nothing. No sooner are they planted, no sooner are they sown, no sooner do they take root in the ground, than he blows on them and they wither, and a whirlwind sweeps them away like chaff. “To whom will you compare me? Or who is my equal?” says the Holy One. Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these? He who brings out the starry host one by one and calls forth each of them by name. Because of his great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing. Why do you complain, Jacob? Why do you say, Israel, “My way is hidden from the LORD; my cause is disregarded by my God”? Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. HE gives STRENGTH to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who HOPE in the LORD will renew their strength. They WILL soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”

‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭40:21-31‬ ‭NIV‬‬

And the songs in my heart as I seek Him in the stillness and prepare to try to rest again are:

-Here, Kari Jobe

-It Is Well, Bethel/DiMarco

-Jesus We Love You/Bethel

-Give Me Faith/Elevation

-Yes & Amen, Housefires

There’s more to share about God’s provision even in this story and I’ll be sure to share those details soon. For now I must rest, I’m certain He’s calling me to it and I’m asking that He allow me to breathe well enough to sleep.

God is still good. He’s still good to me and He’s still the King of this world, the Creator, and my Healer. I worship Him in this broken state because I know that all things work for the good and His glory. (Rom 8:28) I rejoice in the miracles we’ve witnessed while here in Romania and for those that are yet to be seen in the coming days. My God will supply my every need according to His riches in Christ Jesus. I declare and believe He will still accomplish all He has planned and my healing is coming. I have two friends on this trip that are battling some allergy/sinus sounding stuff. I’ve prayed over their bodies and healing again just now from my bed as well as a hedge of protection over my other teammates that they remain healthy and strong as they continue to carry out God’s plans here. If you feel so inclined, please pray that all we spread is love and joy and passion for Jesus – not germs 🤒. And that we are all physically well again soon for those of whom are battling these physical attacks.

With great love and gratitude in Christ,
