MIRACLES NEVER CEASE!
Robert Wise explores the world of divine interventions from an objective point of view. An Archbishop in the Communion of Evangelical Episcopal Church with a Ph.D., Rev. Wise relates his interviews with persons who experienced the touch of God.
A DOUBLE DOSE OF LOVE
Sherre Ishmael had been deeply wounded by someone she loved. The pain had cut to her soul. Consequently, she came to a Service of the Healing Christ carrying that burden. This particular type of worship offered the reconciling work of the Holy Spirit and people came for many different needs. On this particular night, Sherre was struggling to restore the vessel of love that had been broken inside her.
To compound her problem, Sherre had always been a pragmatic person who approached situations in a logical manner. At times, she had felt the need to develop a greater ability to love people but let it pass. On this particular evening, she came forward wanting to experience the love of Christ in a new depth, hoping to be enabled to share His love with others.
A team of three intercessors were waiting as Sherre knelt in front of them. They laid hands on her and began to pray for a new gift of love to be given. The experience became electrifying. Sherre began to realize that Jesus the Christ was pouring his love into her. Far from a sentimental emotion, she was discovering a practical, sacrificial kind of caring. A desire to help others bubbled up inside her.
As that realization grew, in a new way, Sherre accepted the fact that Jesus Christ really did love her personally in a way she had failed to recognize. She discovered that he was calling her to a wholeness. Sherre realized she didn’t need to be perfect or exceptional, just available and obedient to what the Holy Spirit was calling her to do for others. Sherre knew God would be continuing to work in her life and He did!
Shortly, after this prayer experience, Sherre discovered that her arthritis had disappeared. A spin-off of more love in her life was a physical change that was also liberating.
Many times, we don’t think about the love of God being poured into our lives. We live in a highly competive world where the prime objective is to exceed others. From childhood, many of us have received injuries that keep us from caring about other or wanting to be helpful to others. The idea to suddenly be empowered with a greater depth of caring has never crossed our mind. Possibly it’s time to reconsider what our most basic need really is.
The Apostle Paul wrote, “Eagerly desire the greater gifts. I will show you the most excellent way….these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love. (I Corinthians 12:31- 13:13) The love Paul was describing is a gift that only God gives. Could you seek a greater healing than to receive this gift?”
Don’t be hesitant to reach out.
Remember: Expect the Unexpected.
Also, I’d love to hear your story if you’ve experienced a divine intervention.
