I served at the Women’s Empower One this year. When it came to serving time as a prayer minister I was attacked with a stomach ache. I prayed to God and said, “I know you called me to serve you right now, I can’t if my stomach aches. In Jesus’ name heal me. I reject the enemy’s scheme; God’s plan is much bigger.” Within 5 mins, my stomach ache left my body and I was able to pray for the ladies for the next 2 hours.
Earlier in the week, during my fasting time, as a passing thought, I thought if I prayed in word pictures, it’ll be cool. As we were in prayer time, the Holy Spirit just downloaded pictures into my mind to prayer over the women. Very cool!
The Bible teaching was on Joseph’s story. This story has always resonated with me. God reminded me to surrender my broken family relationships in my natural family to Him. I do not need to agonize over it. If He wills, in time the broken relationships can be miraculously mended. God reminded me that He has granted me a huge spiritual family that has been through various life stages with me. Christ’s body lifted me up in prayer, we witnessed miracles together, and He is helping me grow a stronger faith in the Lord Jesus.
I am thankful to Jesus for a spiritually soul refreshing time at the 1st Virtual Empower Women’s Retreat. Nothing can hinder the Holy Spirit from working…not distance, not space, not even different time zones.
