I confess that I spend more time skimming my Facebook newsfeed than I spend in prayer to God. I’m hoping you don’t think too poorly of me, and relate to my plight instead.
If Facebook and other social media outlets are going to consume our attention and time, our job is to ensure the content feeds our spirits in the most positive way possible. I personally choose to follow many Christian ministries – not just those that post lovely Bible verses or words of encouragement each day. I choose to follow ministries that are living the Great Commission – they are healing the sick, cleansing the lepers, raising the dead, and casting out demons – as Jesus instructed us to do in the book of Matthew, chapter 10. These ministries are going into all the world to preach the gospel to every creature – Jesus’ parting directions for us from Mark, chapter 16.
On a daily basis, I enjoy watching great revivals taking place across the world, where thousands become believers in a single night! I’m not kidding…its happening! Don’t believe me? Start following Todd Bentley, who recently visited Africa where he witnessed over 3,000 salvations, and even more across India, Mexico and Canada, all in a single summer. He is truly a man after God’s heart and serves as an amazing inspiration.
The street healing ministries are the most encouraging to me – approaching perfect strangers and asking to bring peace and healing to the lives of those they touch. Seeing blind eyes open or deaf ears hear has become a daily, common occurrence for me. Want to get inspired? I would urge you to follow Todd White – a former drug addict turned minister – who now changes the life of almost everyone he crosses paths with – simply loving and blessing strangers every day.
Any given day of the week, I am barraged by ministers who promise me that God’s grace is more than sufficient for my sins, that God’s desire is that I prosper – financially, physically and emotionally. The ministry and sermons of Joseph Prince in Singapore are at my fingertips thanks to modern technology.
Prophesies and dreams are shared by many, and not just the ministers, but by those who chose to ‘follow’ along. By following these brave souls who share their exploits and engage as a community, I grow, I learn, and I mimic their inspiring behavior. “Praying Medic” is a former paramedic and atheist who had a dream from God that he would start healing those who rode in his ambulance. He has now written several amazing books on how simple it is to heal, hear God’s voice, see in the spirit, and now travel in the spirit!
I have no choice but to advance, to take on the challenge laid out in front of me each day. So while I am living a relatively simple life, I am blessed that it is also a supernatural one!
