What do you do when disaster strikes? What do you do when sickness comes or you run out of money to pay your bills? What do you do? Who do you turn to? Where do you run to?
Do you just get angry… Do you blame God… Do you blame other people? Or, do you just blame yourself? Where do you turn… WHAT do you do?
Do you start wringing your hands with worry? Does your heart start beating faster and your blood pressure begin to rise? Do you begin to sweat? And not because the room is too warm! Well, believe me, I know exactly how that feels.
And while I don’t dwell on the activities the devil has used to come against me and the work God has called me to accomplish through this ministry, let there be no doubt about it… The lights of the TV studio and the excitement we experience in our great healing services do not come without the devil’s attacks and vicious lies against the healing message of God.
I have faced it in our family and in our ministry so many times. In fact, Partner, in all these years, it seems like the devil is after us all the time… to steal, to kill and to destroy. And when you are in the middle of a huge problem, it’s sometimes easy to forget who your source is and who your prayer partner is.
If there is one word in the English language I really hate, it’s the “C” word… CANCER. I’ve prayed for many people with that evil diagnosis and I’ve watched God do so many miracles, but I never dreamed it would hit my family. However, a few months ago, my wife, Lindsay, was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. WE WERE SHOCKED!
“Why us, Lord?” I said. “We are in the healing ministry!”
Well, I said it earlier. The devil is out to steal, to “kill and even destroy God’s people” (John 10:10). He’s laughing right now, thinking he might be able to destroy this ministry.
CANCER… I hate cancer with a passion. Each day I’m praying for hundreds of people diagnosed with it. I hate cancer with every fiber of my being.
So, what did Lindsay and I do? Did we run away and hide? Did we blame God? Was it something we had done, or didn’t do? NO! We put the blame where it belongs, squarely on the devil. Then we went to work in prayer to God, our Source… our Healer! We worked with our doctors as we gathered people of faith around us, men and women who knew and understood the power of prayer—men and women who know how to pray in faith.
In the natural, our circumstances looked bad… It looked as though the devil was having his way! As the doctors advised, Lindsay had surgery to remove her thyroid, along with 18 lymph glands. It seemed as though the dark clouds were moving ever closer, BUT Lindsay and I looked past what we were being told, KNOWING God is still GOD… the God who heals in response to our faith.
Praise God… Praise God… Praise God… We knew what the devil had planned for Lindsay had been defeated the day Jesus took the stripes upon His back for her healing… We were strengthened by the words, “I will never leave you, nor forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5). As we have continued to praise God for His goodness and healing power at work in Lindsay, I want you to know we have experienced a remarkable miracle healing in our family. The devil has lost again… and cancer has been defeated!
Join Lindsay in CELEBRATING the defeat of the devil’s plan!
On July 24 and 25, on our Ministry Program, The Place for Miracles, Lindsay will tell the full testimony, in her own words, about what God is doing in and through her life. I can hardly wait for you to hear what God has done, and continues to do for her. Even the name of our program has taken on a whole new meaning for our family!
I believe you are going to be strengthened in your own faith as you rejoice with us in this miracle. I want you to see and hear Lindsay as she tells you about the miraculous hand of God at work in her life. This is a living proof testimony I believe you will want your family and friends to see and hear as well. I believe it will help build your faith for miracles, especially when trouble or sickness arises suddenly, without warning.
In the natural, this was no small matter. It seemed as though the attacks were coming from all directions… And if the circumstances around us were not enough, the devil turned up the volume on the negative thoughts he was trying to cram into our thinking.
From the moment of the diagnosis, the devil tried to tell me people would question our faith if what the doctors were telling us got out. I knew better… I stood firm in my faith as I talked with prayer partners and family friends. And while not hiding anything, I did not go on television and give the devil a platform from which to strengthen his argument against Lindsay’s recovery. Throughout the past six months, we have walked in complete agreement in our faith as we have watched God work in our circumstance and help us overcome one challenge after another.PRAISE GOD FOR HIS FAITHFULNESS TO HIS WORD… Praise God for His healing touch!
During her testimony on The Place for Miracles on July 24 and 25, Lindsay and I will share the exact steps the Lord led us to take for our victory over cancer. Her testimony will be a road map for victory… And because God is not a respecter of persons (Acts 10:34), what He did for Lindsay, He is ready and willing to do for you, a family member or close friend who is facing what they may be feeling is a no-hope situation. Remember, just because the devil is a liar whose mission is to kill and destroy, it is important that you settle this issue in your spirit once and for all time… “YOU don’t have to be a participant in any plan the devil may have for you!”
LET THERE BE NO DOUBT about this truth: No matter what you are facing, God wants to bring a miracle and healing into your life. Really, His greatest wish is that you have a BETTER LIFE than you’ve ever had. Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth (3 John 1:2).
Partner, this is why this healing ministry exists. We are here to show you how to have a BETTER LIFE in Christ, who is your Lord and Savior. Yes, I said BETTER LIFE! That’s what divine healing is all about.
Whenever Jesus touched someone in the Bible and healed them, He was bringing them a better life. When Peter got the miracle catch in Luke 5, that was the beginning of a better life. When the woman in Matthew 9 reached out in faith and touched the border of Jesus’ garment, she was healed from the constant bleeding in her body… That was the beginning of a better life.
When someone is touched and healed through our anointed healing ministry on television, on Facebook, through a letter, or through the Abundant Life Prayer Group, that’s the beginning of a better life. Let this truth take root in your spirit… It is God’s plan for you to have a BETTER LIFE. You have His Word on it… The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly (John 10:10)
MARK JULY 24 and 25 on YOUR CALENDAR… And join us at The Place for Miracles right there in your home via television. In fact, set your DVR to record this miracle testimony so you can use it as a ministry tool in your personal times of ministry with your family and friends in the days and months ahead. You can also watch the broadcast online in our TV archives.
I want you to see and hear Lindsay and me take you step by step through the miraculous victory plan God placed in our spirits that has allowed us to experience His healing power in an exciting new way. I believe God will speak through these upcoming programs to strengthen your faith over any adverse circumstance you may be facing.
Thank you, Partner, for your seed faith offerings this month. Your continued prayers and financial support, given as an act of faith in what God has called us to accomplish together, are so important as we continue to move from victory unto victory by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.
As you complete and return the enclosed Prayer and Praise Sheet, I challenge you to respond exactly as God is leading you. This is the time to sow a seed gift unto the Lord which goes beyond circumstances… beyond any label the enemy has tried to pin on you… beyond the “natural”… I challenge you to sow a seed gift unto the Lord that reflects your personal confidence in His promise to heal every sickness and every disease among the people (Matthew 9:35).
Now, even as you are responding to the faithfulness of the Holy Spirit at work in your life, I challenge you to see yourself moving forward with the strength that comes from His gift of HEALING operating in and through your life. Look PAST the circumstances and sow in VICTORY… knowing the seed that is significant to you becomes significant to God. Praise God for His response to your act of faith… Allow your spirit to see yourself walking in God’s divine health… Allow your spirit to see yourself walking in God’s joyful abundance with every financial need met… Allow your spirit to see yourself walking in a BETTER LIFE!
Just as Lindsay and I had to look past the natural and see the supernatural at work, I challenge you to do the same. Now is the time to ACT on your faith and sow a seed gift offering unto the Lord for the supernatural harvest you need in your life.
Right now, I am so excited because I know God wants you to have a better life and through His anointing, I want to help you get it.
I look forward to hearing from you and to praying a Prayer of Consecration over your seed gift offering unto the Lord.
Your Partner for a BETTER LIFE,
PS. Please accept this as your personal invitation. I want you and your prayer needs to be included on our Ministry’s Wall of FAITH and MIRACLES. We’re hanging Lindsay’s miracle testimony on that wall, as well as my prayer for our ministry as we continue to move ahead on all fronts as the Holy Spirit leads. And I want you to be a part of it.
Enclosed with this letter is a very special label for you to use in sharing your Prayer Need or Miracle Testimony so we can place it, in your own words, on our Ministry’s Wall of FAITH and MIRACLES in our Abundant Life Prayer Group.
Each day, as our Prayer Partners gather to receive calls from around the world, they talk with men, women and young people who have Prayer Needs—individuals who need a supernatural touch from God. I want them to be strengthened by your Prayers and Miracle Testimony on the Wall of FAITH and MIRACLES that encircles them.
This is your opportunity to give God glory. This is your opportunity to be a Living Witness of the miraculous hand of God at work in your life… This is your opportunity to be an encouragement to us… Let’s stand together in this healing ministry to which God has called us so we can continue to take the healing message to the world.
As you return your seed gift offering unto the Lord with the enclosed Prayer and Praise Sheet, I challenge you to give God an opportunity to begin a new work in you, and move you into the Better Life He has for you. God’s Word also extends the same invitation. “Prove Me now herewith,” saith the Lord of hosts, “if I will not open you the windows of Heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it” (Malachi 3:10). Are you ready for God’s OVERFLOWING BLESSING?
PS. If you have already received a copy of my book, Unstoppable Increase, then you are in for a real treat. Because we are blessed to be a blessing, when I receive your Personal Prayer and Praise Sheet with your best Reflection of Relationship Seed Gift, I’m going to send you another copy of Unstoppable Increase free and postage paid so you can sow it into the life of a family member or close friend.
I’m looking for 300 Special Evangelists who will stand with me this month in an exciting ministry opportunity. See my special note on the enclosed Prayer and Praise Sheet. Will you be one of those 300
