Daily Manna -- Visionary Wisdom

Operating with the Word of Wisdom
Jason Robert Vogt 7.27.09

Wisdom's Dream
Today I had a dream with a word of wisdom; someone I was going to touch had a broken wrist. I wondered what that was about and immediately had another dream.

I randomly met a girl at a ski mountain. We rode up on the lift together and jumped off just before the top. We walked through the woods and came to a small cabin where she worked. It was a pro shop at the top of the mountain. There was a large guy and small guy there, by small, I mean thin in stature.

The small man shook my hand and instantly I knew his wrist had been broken. So I asked, "Has your wrist been broken?” He looked at me funny and said, "Yes, how do you know? It never healed correctly and has a limited range of motion."

I said, "God sometimes shows me things before I go places for people He wants to touch. He's about to heal your wrist!" I took it in my hand and thanked Father for what he was doing. I felt energy release and then heard, "When he least expects it, he will be healed and full movement restored." So I told him just that.

The others had felt the shockwave of energy released so they knew something happened. I said my goodbyes, gave high fives and left.

I returned sometime later and the man greeted me shaking his wrist and smiling, "ALL BETTER!" He continued, "One day I was at the house, I went to reach for something and my wrist moved, Praise God!" “Praise God”, I responded, “PRAISE GOD!!”

The other two in the store were almost glowing. Through this man’s encounter, they had also come to receive Jesus. I was overwhelmed with JOY; what a feeling of family permeated our hearts. We all hugged smiles with tears and said goodbye. Time to move along, another house, another home, an apostle's road is often alone.

Patience is the Key
Sometimes you will not see an instant healing or an immediate salvation, that's fine, don't rush it. God's Wisdom is much greater than ours and often you are planting a seed for a stronger testimony down the road. Be faithful to play your role and YOU WILL perform greater works than these.

As with Naaman and the blind man sent to wash in the pool of Siloam, often there are accompanying actions that must be completed before the miracle can be released. As with the man blind from birth, it is "All for the Glory of God", in sickness or in health.

So when you are ministering, remember -- stop, look and listen; hear what the father is saying and be obedient. In essence, "Fruit picked before maturity is the same as fruit rotten to the core; both are lost."

God is doing much more than simply performing, He is preparing to touch multitudes through one man's testimony of FAITHFULNESS. Will you be that one man?

Daily Manna -- Revelation 20

And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. Rev 20:4
