How many times have you watched a sunset or sunrise and just gasped at its beauty? Or in Nevada, a cloud formation that we call Sierra Wave, with its outstanding design! A revelation of the perfection of the Creator, and how he loves to present such things to us as a means of bringing us closer to an understanding of who he is, to bring joy to our soul and spirit, and to take us to the place where (suddenly) we are focused on him instead of ourselves.
Before I knew Christ Jesus as my personal Savior I was deeply moved by his beauty, but did not understand the Creator of this panoramic beauty. I saw it, and then turned to walk right back into the stress I knew so well – and the well-formed habit of focusing on myself. Since I invited Him, as the Son of God, to lead me out of the urgency of making a day happen, and (instead) resting where his glory is already happening, I am finding that this is where I was created to be…and did not know it.
Through my own inner healing, with prayer ministers, the Holy Spirit began revealing why I had the urgency to be in control. I gasped the same as I did when I saw my first Sierra Wave. I was astounded with the journey that the Holy Spirit took me on while ministering to my inmost being – even before I had intellectual knowledge of right and wrong. In the months that I had inner healing we found bitter roots that I did not know I had. The Holy Spirit revealed things to me that no one knew about but Him. Astounding…to see what was there.
The formation of the lenticular clouds is dependent upon many factors, including wind speed and direction, leeward wind patterns, and water vapor. Thus, their formation is unpredictable. It is the same with us. God creates many factors throughout our life to bring us to the place where we are ready for him to reveal things to us, and why we could not see them before. And in His timing. When He does bring revelation, just like the Sierra Wave, the wind of His Spirit can take our breath away. Unlike other clouds the Sierra Wave can remain stationary for many hours. Many hours of lingering in the awe-inspiring presence of God.
In my role as Prayer Minister and facilitator of Elijah House Training Courses I am, in fact, observing my clients and students having their breath taken away with all the revelations from God. What an awesome privilege and joy to my heart. It is inspiring, satisfying, and continually affirming that I am in the right place. They are astounded with what is revealed to them – at a deeper level. I should write a book about all the “wow moments.” It truly can be breath-taking for both them and myself.
Because my students continually, year after year, communicate that everyone needs to do this Elijah House Training Course I am dedicating this newsletter to invite you, and anyone you may know with a possible interest, to consider attending our next class. Many of you have already taken the training, some are already Prayer Ministers, some have wanted to do it for years, and others are just learning about it. Listen to the wind of the Spirit, soak up the vapors, rest in His presence and see if He is telling you to acquire new tools for setting people free….beginning with ourselves!
