AFTER MORE THAN A YEAR OF ASKING THE LORD
WHAT WE SHOULD NAME THE MINISTRY
THAT WE FEEL HE WANTS US TO BEGIN
I just couldn’t sleep, i turned and turned and just didn’t know what.
I was so restless-so I prayed and prayed
I FINALLY GOT AN ANSWER ON what to name this new Church of His.
It was like the Lord God was saying are you ready for this, It is time!
what you have been searching for is now here..
This might not be going as fast as you want it to but the start is here
as impatient as I was the past 2 or maybe even 3 years, i should realise that building
the church will take lots of time and effort.
This is what you should name the church- which will be Mine.
God made me so excited in the middle of the night, i think it was around 02:30
when I started to write down the things He was telling me to.
and every time i almost feel asleep there was more to write.
These are the things I wrote down…
they are not whole stories but just little catchy lines
we can use our name in anything!

The ten virgins ( brides maids) where ready for the feast.
The others still had to go out and buy some oil- they where still making plans when, where, why, how much etc- just waisting time.

God is good and faithful, He hears our prayers and answers - These last two days as I started (28th & 29th June 2018) I was thinking about our situation of starting a Church and of course I was still busy with the name. Now that I Have the name the enemy is saying “ are you sure thats what God told you to name the church? Is it not your own idea? What if you just think you two have to do this and your not in Gods wil? People will laugh at and about you”
And then of course there is our finacial stiuation.
In February Michel lost the contract he had in as a consultant. We believed that the Lord would provide and that we needn’t have to worry about anything! GOD IS OUR PROVIDER... He is making a way for us to work fulltime now, so lets go for it! We trusted God up to tomorrow I say tomorrow because when you reed this there is always a tomorrow coming and just to make things clear that we havent stopped trusting Him and that we always wil trust Him and Him alone.
So now thats said we believed and up-to last month we could pay our bills without asking for help except once for €450,00 euro’s to pay the mortgage... we were short of that amount. And praise God! Whoever had loaned us the money sat next to us in Hillsong Church and said we wouldn’t have to pay the money back.
Isn’t God awesome!
Now this month we are short of finances to pay all the bills i mean like much much more than the €450,00 and then we are not even speaking of living money... food, drinks, petrol, etc etc...
and so while I had been talking to God and the enemy was telling me how wrong I was and that I was making such a big mistake. This email appeared on my iPhone screen while i was having lunch in the garden at our daughters home in The Hague- as she was playing with the two youngest girls i opened the message a started reading! The Heading alone spoke 100’s of positives into my mind.
I went to school to view our other granddaughters final school play and while waiting for the play to begin I read the rest of what Andrew had to say, I was so build up and got so excited and really felt that God was using this uplifting faith-building teaching to tell me that we are doing the right thing and that the name I heard Him say We should use to name the ministry is all God given! He was with me when He asked us to do His will He was there with us when we said yessss last year in Tulsa, when we where ordained to the ... of Pastors and He was with us during that “ sabatical” year when I thought nothing was happening and just couldn’t be patient enough to see what God had installed for us He was there when i heard Him tell me the name He was there when He saw and Heard the enemy whisper doubt in my ear and so He was there when He told Andrew to write this little article with such big consequences, He was there when it arrived on my Phone & when I read it ... He knew every single thing in advance & I can now only put the “ puzzle” together and He knew that this would make such a big Impact on us! He is saying Trust me! Trust me! Trust me!
I will do more than you could ever dream of.
I Love you so much Abba Father that I am trusting You and always will!
Hugs and kisses, Mimi

“You will guard him and keep him in perfect and constant peace whose mind [both its inclination and its character] is stayed on You, because he commits himself to You, leans on You, and hopes confidently in You.”
Isaiah 26:3 AMPC

God Has Miracles Waiting for You
Where the Lord Guides, He also Provides!
God Has Miracles Waiting for You
No matter what you're facing, if you know that you're in the center of God's will, you are seeing His power manifest in your life.
You can remain confident in the promise that the Lord is aware of your situation and is responsible for you. He is not just an observer in your life. He cares for you more than you can possibly imagine. Instead of expecting defeat, you need to expect a MIRACLE from God!
Where the Lord guides, He also provides. That's just a principle of God. He created each one of us for greatness, but not greatness by the world's definition; the Lord wants to release His miracle-working power in you. He wants to make your life better than your biggest dream!

It is true that some storms are of our own making. Jonah proved that (Jonah 1-3).
Jonah ran from God, encountered a storm while on a ship, was thrown overboard, and wound up in the belly of a fish. But these disciples were smack dab in
the center of God’s will when this storm hit in Matthew 14. I’m saying all this to point out that you can’t look at circumstances to tell you whether you
are in God’s will. You need a word from God. You need an inner witness from the Holy Ghost that what you’re doing is what God told you to do. If you don’t have that, it will hinder you from seeing His power manifest in your life. When
problems come, you’ll feel condemned and think, I brought this on myself; I deserve it. You need to know, first of all, that you
are doing what God told you to do.
Most of these disciples were fishermen on that very lake. I personally believe that the reason Jesus had to constrain them to get into the boat was because
they knew that the conditions were ripe for a storm, and they didn’t want to be out on the water. But if they had been thinking about the fact that Jesus
had just fed 5,000 people, not including women and children (Matt. 14:15-21), then they would have expected a miracle, because they were only out there at
Jesus’ direction. It wasn’t their wisdom. They never would have done this if it were up to them. But in the center of God’s will is where you can hope to see the miraculous!
You see, Jesus was aware of their situation, and He was responsible for them being there. You might be in a situation right now where you are facing absolute disaster financially, physically, emotionally, or in your relationships. Maybe nothing seems to be working. If you are there because of your own rebellion and disobedience to God, then you need to do what Jonah did in the belly of the fish—repent (Jon. 2:1-9). You need to say from your heart, “God, forgive me. I know I’ve been in rebellion toward You, but right now I make a change to follow You again.” Get out of rebellion and get to where you’re submitting to God. He loves you and wants to set you free.
So, are you a Peter or a Jonah?
If you are in the midst of a storm and you know that you are there because you’ve been following God, then you need to recognize that the Lord is responsible for you. Where He guides, He also provides. That’s just a principle of God. Just as Jesus was aware of these disciples’ plight, He is aware of your situation.
God is in the midst of the storm with you, and He’s not there just as an observer. He cares for you more than you could possibly imagine. His power is
present to set you free. Instead of expecting defeat, instead of meditating on tragedy, you need to expect a miracle from God. You’ve got to get away from
doing everything in the natural and only depending upon God as a last resort. God ought to be your first resort. That’s what my series on How to Become a Water Walker is all about. God has miracles He’s wanting to manifest in your life. The story of
Peter walking on the water is powerpacked with truths. Walk on top of your problems instead of being overcome by them.
Another powerful truth that is essential for the miraculous is that you have to be willing to get out of the boat before you walk on water. Most of the disciples were clinging to the slim hope that the boat gave them. They were in a raging storm, so it’s probable that the boat was filled with water just
like another time on that sea (Mark 4:37). It was foolish to step out of the boat onto the water, but that’s what God told Peter to do. He had to go beyond his own ability and trust that God would keep him from sinking.
Likewise, many of us are afraid to step away from the world and out on the word that God has given us. We want the miraculous but don’t want to leave the relative safety of what everyone else is doing. But just like this boat, the world is in crisis. Without the Lord, it’s going to sink. Why are we so afraid
to leave the mundane and trust God for a miracle? Peter was willing to risk it all.
As long as you can live without the miraculous power of God, you will.
But there should be
something in you that is sick and tired of being sick and tired. God made each one of us for greatness, but not greatness by the world’s definition; the Lord wants to release His miracle-working power in you. He wants to make your life better than your biggest dream.
There are reasons that some people see miracles and others don’t. It’s not fate or luck. It’s not like lightning, where you never know when it will strike. God doesn’t pick and choose; there are principles we have to follow to see His power manifest. If you don’t understand that, that’s one of the reasons you’re having problems. But you, too, can see the miraculous power of God.
The instance where Peter walked on the water perfectly illustrates many of the truths that are essential to walking in the miraculous. This is recorded in Matthew 14:22-29.
And straightway Jesus constrained his disciples to get into a ship, and to go before him unto the other side, while he sent the multitudes away.  And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone.  But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary.  And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea.  And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear.  But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.  And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water.  And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.
Notice in verse 22 that the Lord had to constrain His disciples to get into the ship. The word“constrained” means to compel or urge. In other
words, this is saying that there was resistance on the disciples’ part to do what Jesus said. But, to their credit, they went ahead and submitted themselves to Him. They were doing exactly what Jesus told them to do. That’s one of the essentials to receiving a miracle from God. And yet look what verse 24 says:
But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary.
Some people have the mistaken belief that if they are really following God, then everything should be smooth sailing. That’s how a lot of people discern
whether they are in the will of God. They look at their circumstances, and if everything is just perfect, then it must be God. But thinking you have missed God just because you have a problem is absolutely incorrect. This instance proves that. They
were doing exactly what the Lord told them to do.
If you were arrested for being a Christian, would there be enough evidence to convict you? Sadly most Christians don’t have any noticeable differences in their lives when compared to an unsaved person. That is not the way it’s supposed to be. GET OUT OF THE BOAT!
God intended for mankind to live in Him. As Acts 17:28 says, “In him we live, and move, and have our being.” He is absolutely supernatural. He is not limited by the things you see and experience here in this physical world. The normal Christian life is for you to be drawing upon God’s ability and power. Let me put it this way: If you aren’t walking in the supernatural, miraculous power of God, you are living below your privileges, in a substandard life. That might seem strong, but it’s true. If your life isn’t supernatural, then it’s superficial. I really believe that.
Someone might say, “But Peter began to sink.” That’s true. But Peter also walked on the water. That’s something that no one but Jesus is recorded in Scripture as doing. And when Peter began to sink, the Lord was right there to pick him up. He didn’t drown, and neither will you if you get out of the natural and begin to start walking in the supernatural.
Some of you might think, Well, I don’t need a miracle like this. I don’t need to walk on water. What does this have to do with my situation? Of course, I’m not saying that God wants you to go physically walk on water. The significance of this is that here was a situation where it looked like the disciples might be killed and Peter was able to walk on top of what was trying to kill him.
What’s trying to kill you? Is it sickness? How about financial problems or marital problems? Maybe it’s just the mundane. Many people are suffering from boredom. Whatever it is, God wants to release His miracle-working power in you and put you on top. But it’s up to you. It’s His power that performs the miraculous, but Peter didn’t see that power in operation until he took a step outside of the boat.
The exact same principles that operated in Peter’s life in order for him to walk on the water will work for you too! You need these principles operating in your life to receive the miraculous power of God.
