Miracles in The Madness
You Will Fly Again
Recently, I had a vision of an eagle flying high above everything. The eagle had what looked like a lazor beam shooting out from its eye as it looked below. I asked the Lord what it meant, and the Spirit spoke to my heart that it’s the mindset and focus of the eagle. Its vision allows it not to miss what it should see. It allows it to be who it is supposed to be and do what it’s supposed to do.
Overcomers Despite The Trials and Attacks
I feel like there are some believers who are eagles that have been weighed down by limitations ultimately caused by attacks that come from manipulators, naysayers, and haters. Although, as Christians, we know we will always be persecuted and go through trials. The specific attacks I am talking about involve injustices and have been going on for years.
It has caused some of you, who normally plow through barriers, to start to feel as though whenever you try to do certain things to advance in areas that are important to you, that you are prevented in some way or another. You are beginning to realize that it has been a weapon formed against you to try to get you to quit and give up.
I’m not talking about doors that God has not opened. I wouldn’t advise anyone to push on a door but allow God to open them. I’m talking about deliberate efforts from some that are out of the ordinary that I’ll talk about more later. The thing is, God sees it all.
Isaiah 40:27 says, why would you say, “Yahweh isn’t paying attention to my situation. He has lost all interest in what happens to me.”
There have been some that have trespassed your boundaries and messed with your life trying to get you to quit following God’s plan for your life.
Years ago, when I was living in California and we were youth pastors, I kept feeling something very odd. My son was young, and I had my first baby girl, and I would put them down for their nap. I kept feeling like there was someone behind our backyard, in their backyard behind us, hiding behind their bush speaking curses at me. I wondered why in the world would I think of such a thing and dismissed it. I thought it was all in my head.
One day, when I felt like I was sensing it over and over again it wasn’t going away, I decided to stand at my window and looked intently toward the bush. Sure enough, a man stepped out from behind the bush and stood there and just stared at me.
I was young and naïve. I told some people, but nobody did anything. I didn’t know what to do either.
A few years later, I was on a plane with my husband joining him flying somewhere for ministry. I just loved flying and going with him and was enjoying it. A beautiful lady sat next to us. She told us that she practices witchcraft and showed us her ring. I wasn’t afraid at all, and we chatted awhile.
When I went to sleep, I felt a horrible slimy python-like serpent wrap itself around me and my mind was instantly hit with horrible things. I told people, but nobody did anything and I didn’t know what to do either. I have a better understanding now and would know what to do, and I have people around me who would help. We need each other in the Body of Christ.
I’m not saying every person who practices witchcraft would do this to someone. What I am saying is that we are living in a world where some want to get Christians, specifically, to quit working for God.
No Weapon Formed Against You Will Prosper
What is interesting is during this time, you have followed God’s leading into places that others haven’t understood. They have been critical of you. Like with Job, some have even said that you are in sin and this is why you are on the path that you are on.
You may say that I wouldn’t believe some of the things that have happened to you, but I would. The struggle has tried to make me feel like I’m not “measuring up.” Our Prophet, Jim Mellard reminds us all of the time that our feelings lie.
God has done so much, and I’ve experienced so many miracles during this “madness.” He has assured me that I am in His plan and it has a purpose. He will do that same for you.
“Many, Oh Lord, are wonders You have done, were I to speak and tell of them, they would be too many to declare.” Psalm 40:5
The Development in the Struggle
In this place, you found a deep level of comfort from Him when you thought all hope was lost. When you wondered if you were left for naught, God performed miracles.
God has used this experience to develop your senses as you co-labor with Him. He has set up specific divine situations with people and situations. As you went to these places, you saw what He wanted you to see. So now as you are at this moment, you must not forget what He showed you. You will take this and use it as you go forward.
Sustaining Life in The Father’s Love
Keep yourself in a receptive mode because, you have been praying to abide at a deeper level of rest so you can stay in flight and His love will empower you.
There have been many in the Body of Christ that have showed a level of love based from Scripture that has been a sustaining life force during my time of going through this season.
Stay close to those who operate in the grace of God and surround yourself with people of love and discernment. His love is going to sustain you so you can operate in the greater level of overcoming you have been believing for despite it all. He is a God of miracles in the madness.
The Strong Arm of the Lord is Working on Behalf of His Children
Something that I keep seeing in a vision, is a strong arm coming in and grabbing an enemy and pushing him back and then down into defeat. The Lord is coming in with His Mighty Arm and overturning the tables of the enemy’s injustices with a pushing back of the outright attacks that will dispel their efforts.
We know that trials and tribulations will always be present. God uses them to His advantage to develop our trust in Him and disarm the enemy through the Fruits of the Spirit and demonstrations of the Spirit. He performs miracles in the madness. However, He is also going to overthrow a lot of them. Some of them, you will never see again.
The Love of God Will Flow from Your Heart to Show Compassion
We are known by our love. With love, we are as nothing, no matter how talented, gifted, or clever we are.
One of the major things that the Lord has taught me through the painful process is compassion. I’ve learned that it requires a perception. Although the eagle is strong and in the heavenlies, the vision includes compassion and love.
Sometimes, people just don’t understand to a full extent what they are doing. When those that have taken advantage of you realize what they have done, it will be more than enough to make them feel bad. As God’s people, we shouldn’t rub it in their face, so to speak.
Since you have the Father’s love in your heart, He will give you love to respond with compassion to those who have harmed you.
Comfort My People! Comfort My People!
What I feel burning in my heart, over and over again, is the Spirit longing for those who will choose to, to bring comfort to God’s people.
Just like Noah or even Job, we can’t expect others to always get what God asks of us. Since you have gone through the process and seasons that others don’t understand, and know what it’s like to have those who were critical of what they perceived was happening, you can be compassionate to people.
We have to be confident in what is between Him and us. This is what the relationship is about. He has divine lessons of what He wanted you to see and experience. He wanted you to meet different people and learn from them and the circumstances you were in.
Now, we can extend the love of God not with a hidden attitude as “really having judgement in our heart towards them and try to extend help and just be nice,” but instead, be truly moved with the Spirit’s compassion to bring justice with reconciliation and restoration.
God’s Treasure in You to Comfort Others
Out of these places God has placed treasures in you. He will cause these treasures to manifest the goodness of God to comfort His people. You will be Christ to those who need Him.
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all of our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. For as we share abundantly in Christ’s sufferings, so through Christ we share abundantly in comfort too.” 2 Corinthians 1:3-5
Comfort, comfort my people, says your God. Isaiah 40:1
Isaiah 40:27 says, Why would you say, “Yahweh isn’t paying attention to my situation. He has lost all interest in what happens to me.”
[He} who destroys the omens of the false prophets and makes fools of diviners; who confounds the wise and makes their knowledge foolishness. Isaiah 44:25
Restoration of Israel through Cyrus
This is what the Lord, your Redeemer who formed you from the womb, says:
I am the Lord, who made everything;
who stretched out the heavens by myself;
who alone spread out the earth;
who destroys the omens of the false prophets
and makes fools of diviners;
who confounds the wise
and makes their knowledge foolishness;
who confirms the message of his servant
and fulfills the counsel of his messengers;
who says to Jerusalem, “She will be inhabited,”
and to the cities of Judah, “They will be rebuilt,”
and I will restore her ruins. Isaiah 44:24-26
He found him in a desert land, and in the howling waste of a wilderness; He encircles him, He cared for him, He guarded him as the apple of His eye. Deuteronomy 32:10
His promise is that He crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. Psalm 103:4-5
The LORD shall cause your enemies who rise up against you to be defeated before you; they will come out against you one way and will flee before you seven ways. Deuteronomy 28:7
Then the seers will be ashamed and the diviners will be disgraced. They will all cover their mouths because there is no answer from God. Micah 3:7
A sword is against her false prophets, and they will become fools. A sword is against her warriors, and they will be filled with terror. Jeremiah 50:36
If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing. 1 Corinthians 13:1-3
When He had disarmed the rulers and authorities, He made a public display of them, having triumphed over them through Him. Colossians 2:15
But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him]
Will gain new strength and renew their power;
They will lift up their wings [and rise up close to God] like eagles [rising toward the sun];
They will run and not become weary,
They will walk and not grow tired. Isaiah 40:31
