 MIRACLES THAT FOLLOW THE PLOW

MIRACLES THAT FOLLOW THE PLOW....

ARE there any? Cuz i rarely see anyone posting under this heading and when they do it is almost always a prayer REQUEST. One gets the impression that NO ONE on SI has any praise reports to give. DOES God answer prayer? Everyone is long on prayer REQUESTS but not on follow up as to whether any prayers ever got answered. NOT very encouraging.
Seems the only way to read any praise reports is to read George Mueller's biography over and over, from back in the 1800s.

Does ANYone have any encouragement for us poor saps who are in need of it? Come on then, out with it!!

 Re:

I wish I had the kind of praise report that I would be rejoicing in....but I don't. People have been praying for my family and prodigals for over a year and a half. I surely thought God would answer by now. In many ways things "look" worse, and I have days where I tend more toward despair since it has been going on for so long.....

BUT God has been doing a work in ME (not so much the prayer I was wanting answered :( )....affliction is PAINFUL.....but I am learning to lay my Isaac on the altar. I am learning control over my spirit. I am having incredible practice with patience and longsuffering. I am learning what it means to be reviled and not revile back. I have more of a meek and quiet spirit than I did back then (though I still have further to go :)).....I am reading Scripture more. I am praying more. I have learned a new meaning to the term "absolute surrender"....I am still, by the grace of God, able to say, "Though He slay me, yet will I trust Him".....

So are there answers to prayer?? I should think so. They are just not as easily reported as such, and sometimes not even seen....maybe this is NOTHING AT ALL about prodigals, and all about what God wants to do in me....

 Re:

Bless you mama27, the person that uses the plow walks in the way of revival. A.W. Tozer wrote, "Invariably where daring faith is struggling to advance against hopeless odds, there is God sending "help from the sanctuary."

Keep breaking up the fallow ground.

In Christ,

Ron

 Re: MIRACLES THAT FOLLOW THE PLOW

Trekker,

I would like to share with you the essence of a conversation I had this morning with a visitor to our church. They came for a wedding that was on Sat. I knew this lady since I was a teen and am now in my 60s...

We were talking about health issues...then she told me how her daughter had Lyme's disease. She felt led to ask for anointing of oil and received it. Upon receiving it she felt a warmth flow through her body. She wasn't healed at that moment but then a spiritual battle ensued that had to be dealt with, and it was. This spiritual battle had to do with generational sins/spirits that impacted her. (Details were not shared because of time constraints but she mentioned how in their background there were Amish who practiced pow-wowing.) Anyhow, she was healed supernaturally. Today she is fine.

In our conversation we discussed how medicine has for many years been our first line of offense against disease instead of God...am finding there are more people who are seriously questioning our love affair with medicine. We do not think the medical profession has nothing to offer the Believer, but that we are so dependent on it and now they are exploiting this addiction where it has become big business.

On the personal level, I can share a testimony how the LORD helped me when I was afflicted with carpel tunnel syndrome in October 1991.

Regina's wedding was coming up and I was sore afflicted with pain in my hands. I went to the doctor who informed me I needed surgery. But at three weeks away from a wedding this was a no-no. He gave me something for pain but it had limited success. In my spirit I felt the LORD was telling me to pray for this affliction. I had my husband pray over me, but nothing happened at this point. However, I soon sensed in my spirit the problem is nutritional. Through testing, observing I learned what it was: caffeine triggered the pain. To remedy it and heal it I abstained from caffeine, took vitamin B12, ate one grapefruit a day for a couple years. Today I still limit my caffeine intake. And I never had surgery. Later I told my doctor what happened and he was not impressed. He dismissed the consumption of grapefruit as to having any practical benefits to the healing of my hands. SIGH.

I praise the LORD for his healing touch. I am becoming convinced that we need to turn FIRST to the LORD to touch our bodies for healing and see where He would take us. The healing may be instant, or it may be caused by what we are doing to our body that needs changing. If the problem remains we still need to be sensitive to what the Spirit would have us do and it could be He would have us go to a doctor. In any case, it is a journey motivated by faith.

Richard Wurmbrand used to say that if God wants us alive, not even Communist torture can kill a person. I would tend to believe that if God wants us alive nothing else can kill us, either.

What say, Trekker?

Wow, mama27, great post there. I like that.


EDIT: However, for this site to so rarely have any praise reports (much like all the churches i have been in) does NOT bring glory to God. Nor does it encourage other Believers.
I have had UNbelievers state to me that prayer does not work and that when on the rare occasion there seems to be an answered prayer it is just chance, or coincidence. According to the Bible, answered prayer is supposed to be the norm, not the rare event. Is it not written, "And whatever you ask in my name..."? No, i don't want to hear the old spiel about "asking amiss" or "according to your lusts"--i am not referring to THOSE kinds of prayers. We all know that verse and i am talking about legitimate, spiritual prayers, not carnal ones.

 Re:

How's this for size?

I had been tormented for years over hurts from people I had drawn too close to myself. I asked God for healing, for wisdom, to help me overcome my hurt and anger for years.

Recently, I had two dreams. The first was an allegory of God removing nails and darts that had lodged into my soul and I had been carrying for a long time.

About three months later, a second dream: this time of walking through warm springs as a cleansing for the soul and a protection layer being fashioned for my soul by a Craftsman. I believe God was saying 'I will heal you and I will give you what you need to protect yourself.'

As if that wasn't enough; this morning, a new emphasis on an old wise precept: if I am wise enough to not put dirt into my mouth, why am I not equally wise to not put certain people into my life?

For me, it all means a lot; a Father who cares for me.
