Yesterday while working outside my home Donna came to me and said “I know its hard for you not being able to travel and minister.” I can’t begin to tell you what that meant to me.
I had my entire year planned accept for one month. In January I was in the Dominican Republic. Then I was suppose to go to Romania in February but the Holy Spirit said “don’t go.” There was no explanation. Just “don’t go.” I had to contact the pastors and tell them I wasn’t coming and could only say that I was trying to be obedient.
Then the why came three weeks later. My father (94 years young) was in Florida and it was time to bring him to live here in Massachusetts. I had to make many arrangements and I then flew to Florida spent a week getting his affairs in order spent days cleaning out his trailer and then we flew home. The next day I was on a plane to India.
The trip was 10 days long a change from the original plan of 14 days. Praise God I heard to change how long I was to stay. My flight was the last flight to United States because they shutdown the airport in India. If I had not changed my flight I would have been stuck in India,
Anyway, this morning I was telling the Lord (he already knew) that I was unable to travel. To be honest I probably was venting…Then in the middle of a sentence I heard “you can’t go but I can.” It was like getting a dope slap (being gently tapped on the side of my head).
As I began to pray asking the Lord to visit every city, town, village and to personally visit every person I had ever met I suddenly saw a wind blowing. It was a gentle warm breeze that was coming from the throne of God. I became very excited thinking why didn’t I do this earlier. Yes, I can’t go but he can and He did. Even as I write this i can see angels going into the remote villages in Haiti, India, Dominican Republic, Moldova and all the places I have been in Romania.
I hear the Spirit say to me, “pray and fan the flames.” I am reminded of Psalm 107 where it says”
So we can’t go but God can.
