What a strange man. Eating locusts, dressed in camel hair, no wife, no kids, no house – what was he thinking?  His name was John the Baptist. He was a man declaring that there was something coming far more important that this life, these pleasures. He showed his message in his life he lived.

Moses second son was prophetic too – by the name he carried.

Exodus 18:4 Eliezer – which means ‘God was my helper, he rescued me from the sword of Pharaoh

Moses sent his wife and 2 sons off to stay with Jethro (his father in law) to keep them safe. This was sometime before the Israelites escaped from Pharaoh. One month into the journey around the wilderness and Moses sees his children and wife again. What a fantastic re-union. How he must have missed them. Moses tells them all that has happened and about the amazing miracles God did – the way he helped them cross through the sea.  Eliezer heard all about his name being fulfilled. He understood who he was. He had found his identity.

The name of his son shows what faith Moses had that God would rescue the Israelites. Even before the mass exodus Moses named his son “he rescued”. This was a brave step to stake his belief so clearly in the name of his child. Everyday when Moses looked at ‘he rescued’ he must have wondered when his freedom was going to come.

Jethro is delighted at the testimony Moses brings.  He sees the hand of God in all that had happened. The testimony takes him to the presence of God in worship. Aaron and all the elders feast in God’s presence.

My name means noble and for years I only felt shame. God brought me out into a place of freedom where I saw his grace on my life and I understood who I was. I discovered my identity as a noble princess of the King. It is something that I am still discovering and coming to an understanding of. As I change and tell my story I am the message. I rub off God’s love and goodness into other peoples’ hearts.

Your story (testimony) of all that God has done for you will turn peoples hearts to God. You will cause them to desire a relationship with God. Be generous in sharing your story around.

Today: What does your name mean? Feel free to adopt a prophetic name that you see being fulfilled. Eg loved of God, free son, adventurous daughter etc Share your story with someone today and be the message to them.

Elephants don’t forget

I am not suggesting we should all become like elephants – but they never forget!!

At the moment you read this I will be on an adventure to the Philippines. I am going to keep on writing to catch up with all that God has placed on my heart to share. I want you to continue the journey as I am on mine 🙂

If I can I will add extra blogs into the ones I have written for each day. You will have to excuse any typos or communication bumbles as I have had to write them up in advance.

We have already seen that Psalms 78 is a poetical version of the children of Israel’s adventure. Psalms 78:42-55 is all about the lack of the people of God to remember all God had done for them.  Asaph lists of things God had done and that  the people had forgotten. They forgot about their freedom from slavery, the plagues, the crossing the red sea and all the mighty miracles God performed.

I have been challenged recently by God  to write down all the healings I have seen. I was shocked as I started to write  how many I had forgotton about and how many I could recall. I am excited that I God is moving so powerfully in our generation that healings are becoming more and more common. I have now been challenged to write all the people I have seen change, all the times God has provided what I needed and all the outstanding prophecies that I have heard. This is still a job in process.

I would like to share one from last year. On my first trip to the Philippines. The leader of the church had a large gall stone and the hospital was loosing hope that it would move. A friend on mine had just ‘passed’ a small one and told me of the excruciating pain it caused him for days. He promptly showed it me in a glass bottle (LOL). Anyway back to the story. My Philipino friend, a mighty man of God, knew that it was going to cost over £500 for the lazer treatment the hospital were now advising him to have. I laid hands on him and prayed and on his next trip to the specialist the week later they were surprised as they couldn’t find anything. He was surprised as he hadn’t felt anything. They insisted on checking him again to make sure!!

Self made rainbow, made in home garden.

The other story I love from the Philippines is the word from God the group were given before we left. We were told that ” As you sing a rainbow will appear over your heads. As people walk through the rainbow their heaviness will go and their lives will be full of colour.” On the first Sunday the group sang together in front of the congregation and one of the older men came up to me afterwards to speak to me. He told me that as we were singing he saw a rainbow appear over the whole group. He knew nothing of the word given to us back in England.

God is good. He is faithful

Today: List all the times God has been faithful to you. All the times you have seen a miracle, provision or fulfilment of a word. These are your stories that will be a springboard of faith to greater things.
