Why does our experience often seem so contrary to the simplicity of the promise, the promise that when we request help from God, He will supply it?
In my teenage years, my limited and unhealthy diet started affecting me in a different way. I became very insecure about my body and the way I looked.
I asked God in faith for what I desired…and God gave me all of it…and they all lived happily ever after. Okay that’s not the end of the story, in fact it was just the beginning.
No matter what the circumstances are we know it was God’s enabling grace that brought us through the hardest season of our lives to date.
The gift of tongues is a mysterious gift that is frequently misused and misunderstood.
The locals there live with no running water or toilet facilities, and for our stay, a ‘long drop’ toilet facility served our needs.
I’m 35 not 75 and I’m fit and healthy and on paper, what I went through is so unlikely that I really would have guffawed at you.

The world says we are just victims of our circumstances. God says something different! We have felt God calling the youth be empowered by Him! Dead to self, alive to Christ. (Romans 6:11)
Unfortunately what I’ve experienced prior to finding breakthrough in life is: “With each different level – there’s a different devil.” It doesn’t end there, the encouragement is: EVERY difficult time has a God ordained expiry date, it won’t last forever and we will eventually break through.
