Radio host Michael Medved recounts moments of divine providence in American history. Read Transcript


SHE WITNESSED A WAR ZONE.

CHILDREN WHO ARE

TRAUMATIZE AND

THEY CAN'T SPEAK BECAUSE THEY

WATCHED

THEIR FIRE GET KILLED BY

REBELS.

THEY THOUGHT NIGHTMARES

WERE

NORMAL.

WHY STEPHANIE WILLIAMS

WENT BACK.

THESE KIDS ARE IMPORTANT.

ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB"

INTERACTIVE.

Gordon: WELCOME TO THE

SHOW.

SOME THINGS HAPPEN BECAUSE OF

ACCIDENTS.

TAKE A LOOK.

SINCE THE PLANTING OF THE

CROSS IN

1607 WHEN ENGLISH SETTLERS

DEDICATED

TO GOD, WHEN A DISASTER IS

IMMINENT,

IT IS TIME AND TIME AGAIN

THAT THIS IS

A CRISIS.

BUT A REFLECTION OF GOD'S

GUIDANCE AND

INTERVENTION. IN HIS NEW

BOOK, THE

DIVINE PROPHET, TELLS ABOUT

THE MOST

SIGNIFICANT EVENTS OF

AMERICA'S RISE

TO PROSPERITY AND POWER.

HE REVEALED THAT WHAT'S AT

THE HEART

OF IT ALL IS WHAT THE

FOUNDERS ALWAYS

BELIEVED THAT EVENT OF OUR

NATION'S

HISTORY UNFOLDED NOT BY

ACCIDENT, BUT

A MASTER PLAN.

Gordon: THE BOOK IS CALLED

"THE

AMERICAN MIRACLE, THE DIVINE

PROVIDENCE" AND MICHAEL IS

HERE TO

TALK MORE ABOUT THIS.

I READ A LOT ABOUT GEORGE

WASHINGTON, AND THE TIMES HE

REFERS TO

THE PROVIDENCE I DON'T THINK

MOST

AMERICANS READ THAT.

WHAT IS IT AND THE

MIRACLE?

MY BOOK IS CALLED A

CHAPTER IS

CALLED "UNDESTRUCTIBLE" IT

WAS IN 1855.

23 YEARS OLD AND THERE WERE

43 BRITISH

OFFICERS ON HORSEBACK. 29 OF

THEM WERE

WOUNDED.

WASHINGTON WAS NOT.

HE HAD A BULLET KNOCK HIS HAT

OFF HIS

HEAD, HE HAD BULLETS IN HIS

CLOTHES.

HE WAS SO REMARKABLE THAT A

23-YEAR-OLD GUY, SAMUEL

DAVIES, THE

MOST IMPORTANT PREACHER OF

THE TIME,

PRESBYTERIAN. HE ACTUALLY

DELIVERED A

SERMON AND SAID "I CANNOT BUT

HOPE

THAT PROVIDENCE HAS PRESERVED

THIS

COLONEL YOUTH WASHINGTON FOR

A PURPOSE

OF HIS COUNTRY".

PRETTY GOOD ENDORSEMENT.

FOR 23 YEARS.

I HEARD THE ENGLISH WANTED

TO MEET

HIM BECAUSE THEY HAD TARGETED

HIM.

IT IS NOT -- HE SPOKEN TO

DR.

CRAIG WHO HAD ACCOMPANIED

WASHINGTON

TO AN EXPEDITION. ON THAT

EXPEDITION

AND THIS IS VERIFIED BY AT

LEAST TWO

OF THEM. THERE WAS AN ELDERLY

INDIAN

WHO CAME FORWARD YEARS AFTER

THE -- HE

SAID WASHINGTON IS GOING TO

BECOME A

GREAT CHIEF.

OF HE WASN'T YET. THE IT WAS

BEFORE

THE REVOLUTION. HE SAID ON

THE BATTLE,

OUR BULLETS COULDN'T MISS.

THIS WAS A DISASTER FOR THE

BRITISH

ARMY BUT HE SAID BULLETS WERE

POWERLESS AGAINST THIS GREAT

MAN AND

WE BELIEVE THE GREATER SPIRIT

PROTECTED HIM. THIS IS AGAIN

ONE OF

THESE STRANGE COINCIDENCES.

HE DIED ON

DECEMBER 14, 1799, JUST WEEKS

BEFORE

THE END OF THE WHOLE CENTURY

THAT HE

HAD DOMINATED WITH HIS

PERSONALITY.

AND, AGAIN, CHEATING DEATH

AGAIN AND

AGAIN.

THERE IS ANOTHER STORY, THE

BATTLE OF

BRANDY WINE.

THE MOST FAMOUS MARX MAN OF

THE ARMY

WAS PATRICK FERGUSON.

RIGHT BEFORE THE BATTLE, HE'S

WEARING

A LARGE HAT AND A CLOAK.

HE SAID AFTER THE BATTLE, HE

SAID "I

COULD HAVE PUT SIX MUSKET

BALLS INTO

HIM WITHOUT QUESTION, BUT IT

WASN'T

PLEASANT TO ME TO HARM

SOMEONE WHO WAS

FULL INTO HIS DUTY".

IT'S JUST REMARKABLE.

SOMETHING CAME

OVER HIM AND THERE WERE

STORIES AND

STORIES LIKE THIS.

ANDREW JACKSON WHO IS A

DOMINANT

FIGURE IN OUR EARLY HISTORY.

IN 1835, HE GOES TO THE

CAPITOL

BUILDING.

IT'S HIS SECOND TERM OF

PRESIDENT,

HE'S AN OLD MAN, THE END OF

HIS SECOND

TERM.

HE GOES TO A FUNERAL AND HE'S

WALKING

OUT OF THE FUNERAL AND UNDER

THE

ROTUNDA AND ALL OF A SUDDEN

THE CROWD

HEARS A GUNSHOT.

A PAINTER, A BRITISH

NATIONAL, COMES

UP TO JACKSON AND FIRED AT

HIM WITH A

MUSKET FROM 6 FEET AWAY. YOU

CAN'T

MISS FROM 6 FEET AWAY.

IT MISS FIRED.

AND THEN JACKSON STARTS

BEATING HIM

WITH HIS CANE.

THE GUY TAKES OUT ANOTHER GUN

AND IT

MISS FIRED.

THEY TESTED THE MUSKET AND

THERE WAS

NOTHING WRONG WITH IT.

IT JUST MISS FIRED.

THEY TAKE THE TIME TO WHEN

THAT

HAPPENS IS ONE IN 15,000.

IT'S PROBABLY MATHEMATICALLY

WORSE

THAN THAT.

LET'S TALK ABOUT ABRAHAM

LINCOLN

BECAUSE WITHOUT HIM, THIS

NATION WOULD

HAVE BEEN DIVIDED.

THERE IS NO QUESTION ABOUT

THAT.

I WRITE IN THE BOOK SOME

INCLUSIVE

HISTORICAL DETERMINATIONS

THAT LINCOLN

WAS THE CRUCIAL ELEMENT IN

NORTHERN

VICTORY, AND THE FACT THAT HE

BECAME

PRESIDENT IS PREP STRAUS.

LINCOLN WAS A LAWYER. HE

SERVED ONE

TERM IN THE HOUSE OF

REPRESENTATIVES.

WHEN THE REPUBLICAN

CONVENTION CAME,

THEY RANKED THE POSSIBLE OF

REPUBLICANS IN THE ORDER.

LINCOLN RANKED 14 AND THEY

THOUGHT HE

WAS ALL WRONG AND YET HE WINS

THE

NOMINATION PARTLY BECAUSE

JUDGE DAVIS

HELPS GIVE OUT MAYBE TICKETS

TO STOCK

THE GALLERY WITH LINCOLN

SUPPORTERS

AND THEN HE BECOMES THIS

AMERICAN

MIRACLE.

LINCOLN HAD A TOTAL OF 6

MONTHS TO

SPEND IN ANY SCHOOL, ANY

REFORM. HE

WAS ONE OF THE GREAT WRITERS

AND

THEOLOGICAL THINKERS IN THE

WORLD.

ARE WE COMING TO A

PROVIDENCE IN

AMERICA?

WE HAVE AND AMERICA IS IN

DIRE.

WE HAVE BECAUSE AMERICA IS

ECONOMICALLY TO EXPLAIN IT

EITHER

EXPLAIN IT UPON AMERICA HAS

GOT TO BE

SO POWERFUL BECAUSE WE ARE

BAD,

BECAUSE WE ENSLAVE PEOPLE AND

WE

DESTROY AMERICANS.

YOU CAN ARGUE AGAINST THAT

ARGUMENT

BECAUSE THOSE WHO DID WORSE

THAN WE

DID NEVER GAINED THE SUCCESS

THAT

AMERICA DID.

WE GAINED THAT SUCCESS ON THE

PART OF

OUR CRUEL BEHAVIOR, NOT

BECAUSE OF IT.

SO HOW DO YOU EXPLAIN

AMERICA? IT

CAN'T BE BECAUSE OF RANDOM

ACCIDENT.

IT'S NOT RANDOM EVOLUTION.

IT'S BY DESIGN. WHO IS THE

DESIGNER.

THERE ARE A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO

SAY,

OKAY, AMERICA HAD A VERY GOOD

DESIGN.

IT'S THE FOUNDERS, FRANKLIN,

WASHINGTON AND MADISON.

OKAY, BUT THEY ALL SAW

THEMSELVES AS

THE INSTRUMENTS OF DESIGN.

THE PROVIDENCE WITH THE

IDEAS THAT

THEY CAME UP WITH.

NOT ENTIRELY AND WITH ALL

OF THESE

COINCIDENCES THAT KEPT

HELPING THEM.

FOR INSTANCE, THE AMAZING

STORY, THE

BATTLE OF BROOKLYN.

THIS IS ONE OF THESE STORIES

WHEN I

WAS WRITING ABOUT IT, IT

MAKES THE

HAIRS ON YOUR FOREARM STAND

UP BECAUSE

WOW, GEORGE WASHINGTON LOSES

THE

BIGGEST BATTLE IN THE

AMERICAN WAR.

THERE WAS A BRITISH ARMY OF

30,000.

IT CRUSHES THE AMERICANS AND

SURROUNDS

THEM AND TRAPS THEM. THEY ARE

TRAPPED

IN BROOKLYN HEIGHTS IN THE

BATTLE.

THE BRITISH ARE SURROUNDING

THEM. IN

THE EAST RIVER, THE BRITISH

MEN OF

WAR, THE BRITISH NAVY, HOW

YOU DO THEY

GET OUT WHEN THEY ARE

FIGHTING TO THE

DEATH.

IT'S AUGUST OF 1776.

AUGUST IN NEW YORK IS PRETTY

STICKY.

ALL OF A SUDDEN THE FOG COMES

UP OUT

OF NO WHERE. EVERYONE AGAIN

AT THE

TIME SAW THIS AS A MIRACLE,

AS AN ACT

HAVE GOD.

IT WAS.

IT CLEARLY WAS. THEY ALL

SAID SO.

IT COMES OUT OF NO WHERE, IT

COVERS

THE RIVER AND THEY WERE ALL

IN SILENCE

AND SUCCESS.

WASHINGTON IS ON THE LAST

BOAT AND THE

MOMENT HE TAKES FOOT TO TAKE

COMMAND

OF HIS TROOP, THE FOG

MIRACULOUSLY

CLEARS.

THE BRITISH TALKED ABOUT

THIS. THEY

SAW WHAT HAPPENED TO THE

AMERICANS.

THEY SAW IT AS A WONDER.

THEY REFERRED TO IT AS IF

IT'S

ALADDIN'S MAGICAL LAMP THAT

MADE THIS

DISAPPEAR.

IT WAS A BIGGER MAGIC AND

BIGGER POWER

THAN ALADDIN.

THE BOOK IS CALLED

"GREATER

MIRACLE".

I ENCOURAGE YOU TO GET IN

TOUCH WITH

OUR HISTORY PARTICULARLY

WHERE GOD

INTRAVENOUS AND WE HAVE TO

WONDER

TODAY WHAT GREAT PLAN DOES

GOD HAVE

FOR AMERICA TODAY AND CAN WE

DREAM

TODAY THAT THIS PROVIDENCE IS

COMPELLING US TO DO FOR THE

WORLD

TODAY.

Terry: COMING UP, SHE HELPS

VICTIMS

OF WAR AND FORMER CHILD

SOLDIERS DREAM

AGAIN.

I WANTED TO BECOME A

PREACHER.

HEAR HOW BETHANY WILLIAMS

LED HER

TO THE CHILDREN OF AFRICA.

THAT'S

NEXT.

Terry: BETHANY WILLIAMS

NEVER

IMAGINED THE TRAUMA SHE

SURVIVED COULD

NEVER BE USED FOR ANY GOOD.

HERE IS

HER STORY.

THE FACT FOR REACHING OUT

FOR HELP

WOULD LEAD ME INTO A WAR ZONE.

I HAD JUST GRADUATED FROM

COLLEGE,

WE WERE BOTH FIGHTING

ADDICTION.

OUT OF THAT CAME SOME TRAUMA

THAT I

SPECIFICALLY WENT THROUGH

BEFORE THE

DIVORCE AND THE YEAR

FOLLOWING THE

DIVORCE THERE WAS MORE TRAUMA.

AND LED ME DOWN A ROAD OF NOT

JUST

SADNESS, BUT A DEPRESSION

THAT IT FELT

LIKE IT ENVELOPED ME AT TIMES.

I HAD FLASH BACKS AND

NIGHTMARES AND

NOT BEING ABLE TO SLEEP. I

WASN'T ABLE

TO WORK, I WASN'T ABLE TO

FUNCTION.

THAT'S WHEN SUICIDAL THOUGHTS

BECAME

SO HEAVY.

IT WAS TO EITHER LIVE LIKE

THIS WHAT I

FELT LIKE FOREVER OR SWALLOW

YOUR

PRIDE AND REACH OUT FOR HELP.

IT WAS A CHRISTIAN TREATMENT

CENTER.

WE HAD PRAYER EVERYDAY AND

BIBLE STUDY

EVERYDAY.

IT WAS AN ENVIRONMENT THAT I

WAS

SURROUNDED WITH THIS

UNCONDITIONAL

LOVE.

PART OF PAYING FOR THE

TREATMENT

CENTER WAS TO SELL MY CAR

WHICH MEANT

I DIDN'T HAVE AN AUTOMOBILE.

IT WAS LAST SUNDAY AND I

WANTED THE

-- TO GO TO CHURCH SOMEWHERE

AND

WALKED TO A CHURCH.

I HEARD A MAN SPEAKING IN AN

ACCENT

TALKING ABOUT GENOCIDE.

HE WAS TALKING ABOUT PEACE

AND

RECONCILIATION.

I HAVE A MASTERS IN SOCIAL

WORK AND

DOCTORATE IN COUNSELING.

I ASKED GOD TO SHOW ME HOW TO

USE MY

BACKGROUND IN COUNSELING AND

MY TRAUMA.

FAST FORWARD 2 YEARS, I WENT

TO CONGO

FOR THE FIRST TIME WITH THAT

VERY

ORGANIZATION HE FOUNDED.

I COME BACK TOTALLY WRECKED

BECAUSE I

MET CHILDREN WHO WERE SO

TRAUMATIZED

THAT THEY COULDN'T SPEAK

BECAUSE THEY

WATCHED THEIR FATHER BE

KILLED BY

REBELS, OR MET SOLDIERS FOR

THE FIRST

TIME AND ASKED ME TO BE THEIR

MOM

BECAUSE THEY NEVER HAD A MOM

BEFORE. I

THOUGHT, SOMEONE HAS TO DO

SOMETHING.

YOU KNOW? THESE KIDS NEED TO

KNOW

THEY ARE IMPORTANT AND THE

WORLD IS

NOT GIVING UP ON THEM.

THIS EXILE WAS KEEPING ME

AWAKE.

THEY THOUGHT A FLASHBACK WAS

NORMAL,

THEY THOUGHT A NIGHTMARE WAS

NORMAL

BECAUSE OF THIS TRAUMA.

I DIDN'T HAVE A PLAN.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT I WAS

DOING.

I STARTED WORKING WITH 25

KIDS AND NOW

WORKING WITH A THOUSAND. WE

STARTED

WORKING WITH KIDS, WE THOUGHT

OF

THINGS WE CAN DO.

THEY WILL DRAW ON A PIECE OF

PAPER.

THEY WILL WAIT FOREVER TO

HAVE THAT

CHANCE TO TELL THEIR STORY

BECAUSE

THEY WANT THEIR STORY TO BE

TOLD. ONE

OF THE COOLEST THINGS WAS

WHEN WE

ASKED THE KIDS TO DREAM.

THEIR FACE

JUST SHIFT.

I WANT TO BECOME A

PREACHER.

I WANT TO BECOME A

SECRETARY.

I KNOW I'M ALWAYS PRAYING

TO THE

LORD AND ALWAYS PRAYING TO

GOD TO HELP

ME GO TO A UNIVERSITY.

I REMEMBER COMING BACK

FROM THE

CONGO FOR THE FIRST TIME TO

NOT QUIT.

I WILL TRY NOT TO GIVE UP. I

WILL TRY

TO KEEP GOING.

WHEN EVEN IN THAT HARD TIME

WHEN

PEOPLE DIDN'T BELIEVE IN YOU

AND

THOUGHT YOU WERE CRAZY, AND I

WOULD

TELL MYSELF, I THINK YOU ARE

CRAZY,

BUT THESE KIDS ARE WORTH IT.

THERE ARE LITERALLY

THOUSANDS OF

CHILDREN IN THE WORLD. WHEN

YOU LOOK

AT THE MASSES, YOU REALIZE

THERE IS A

LOT OF US OUT HERE, AND IT'S

A LOT OF

US THAT DO SOMETHING FOR ONE

CHILD,

ONE CHILD, YOU ARE ABLE TO

SEE THAT

NOT ONLY IS THEIR LIFE

DIFFERENT,

THEIR BLOOD LINE IS DIFFERENT.

I REALIZE THAT WHEN WE

SUFFER, HE'S

CLOSER TO US AND HE'S CRYING

IN OUR

PAIN RATHER THAN CAUSING IT

AND THAT

HE LOVES ASHES BECAUSE HE'S

ABLE TO

LOOK AT THE ASHES OF OUR LIFE

AND WE

ARE THINKING, THIS IS OUR

LIFE IN

SHAMBLES AND IT'S GOING UP IN

FLAMES.

HE'S THINKING, THAT'S THE

GOOD STUFF.

THAT'S WHERE I'M GOING TO BE

ABLE TO

MAKE THIS INCREDIBLE BEAUTY

FROM.

Terry: THE POWER TO DREAM.

TO BE

ABLE TO HAVE HOPE FOR

TOMORROW, TO BE

ABLE TO FIND HEALING FROM THE

PAST.

IT'S SO SIGNIFICANT.

IT'S TRUE FOR ALL OF US, BUT

ESPECIALLY FOR THE CHILDREN

THAT

BETHANY HAS REACHING OUT TO

AND THE

PEOPLE THAT CBN REACHES

THROUGHOUT THE

WORLD. I WANT TO SAY THERE IS

ALSO A

POWER THAT YOU AND I HAVE.

THE POWER OF 1 PERSON TO MAKE

A

DIFFERENCE BECAUSE THEY

DECIDE TO.

I WANT TO INVITE YOU TO DO

THAT.

IF YOU WANT TO READ THE REST

OF

BETHANY'S STORY.

IT'S CALLED THE "THE BENEFIT

OF GRACE".

> COMING UP. A WOMAN THAT

IS

DIAGNOSED WITH A WASTING

DISEASE.

YOU HAVE ALREADY LOST YOUR

HANDS

AND FEET.

YOU CAN BE PARALYZED.

SEE HOW SHE DEFIES THIS

DIAGNOSIS,

Gordon: HAVE YOU EVER

RECEIVED A

SUPERNATURAL HEALING ONLY TO

HAVE THE

DISEASE RETURN? THAT'S WHAT

HAPPENED

TO WORSHIP WRITER MELISSA

HOUSER.

THIS IS HER JOURNEY TO

COMPLETE

WHOLENESS.

AT 17 I WAS DIAGNOSED WITH

ARTHRITIS WHICH IS PSORIASIS

OF THE

SKIN AND THE BONE.

HE SAID YOU HAVE ALREADY LOST

YOUR

HANDS AND FEET.

YOU CAN BE PARALYZED IN A

YEAR 1/2.

WHEN IT GETS TO YOUR

BLOODSTREAM, IT

GOES TO YOUR JOINT AND EATS

AWAY AT

YOUR BONE MARROW AND ATTACKS

EVERY

JOINT IN YOUR BODY AND TURNS

AND

FREEZES THEM.

I CAN BARELY GET OUT OF BED.

I WAS

HOPING THE MEDICATION WOULD

TAKE AWAY

THE PAIN BUT IT WASN'T.

I COULD HARDLY WAIT TO GO TO

CHURCH

AND THE PASTOR WOULD SAY, I

UNDERSTAND

THERE IS SOMEONE WITH PAIN.

PLEASE STAND UP.

I IMMEDIATELY STAND UP.

IT WAS IN MY HEART, REJECTION

THAT I

START FEELING FOR MY FAMILY.

GOD SAID, WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

I'M

GIVING YOU THE AUTHORITY AND

COURAGE

TO STAND UP AND FIGHT FOR

THIS THING.

WHY ARE YOU LAYING DOWN AND

DYING IN

IT? AFTER THAT, I THROUGH

AWAY MY

MEDICINE AND WENT ON A 30-DAY

FAST AND

WAS RADICALLY HEALED.

THE FIRST TIME I MET

MELISSA, I

SAID WHOEVER SHE IS, I WANT

TO KNOW

HER.

WE GOT MARRIED AND WE GOT

PREGNANT

WITH AIDEN AND THEN A YEAR

AFTER THAT,

IT CAME BACK PRETTY TENSELY.

WITHIN ABOUT A YEAR, MY BODY

WAS

COVERED IN PSORIASIS.

ANYTHING I WOULD DO, OPEN UP

A JAR.

ALL OF THOSE THINGS, MY HANDS

WERE IN

CONSTANT CHRONIC PAIN.

ANYTHING THAT A MOM NEEDS TO

BE ABLE

TO DO TO BE ABLE TO HOLD

THEM, LIFT

THEM, TO RUN, TO PLAY, WAS

PRETTY MUCH

IMPOSSIBLE.

MY HEART WAS JUST LIKE

LORD, HEAL

HER.

I KNOW YOU CAN DO IT.

HE SAID I WANT HEALING MORE

FOR

MELISSA THAN YOU WANT

HEALING. WILL

YOU TRUST ME?

AFTERWARDS IT BECAME

HARDER AND

HARDER TO DO LIFE.

SOMETIMES YOU FEEL YOU ARE

LEAVING IT

BECAUSE 1 MINUTE YOU ARE IN

THE

PRESENCE OF THE LORD AND NEXT

YOU ARE

THINKING, HE'S LEFT ME AND I

DON'T

EVEN KNOW WHERE TO FIND HIM.

I HAVE

MADE CHOICE AFTER CHOICE

AFTER CHOICE.

I'M NOT GOING TO GET BITTER .

I AM NOT GOING TO BE

DISAPPOINTED.

I'M GOING TO LIVE MY LIFE.

YOU CAN

MAKE MUSIC IF YOU TAKE THE

TENSION OUT

OF ANY INSTRUMENT.

IT WON'T MAKE A SOUND.

IT WILL MAKE A REALLY BAD

SOUND.

I WAS OH MY GOSH.

I'M BECOMING YOU, I'M

BECOMING THE

LORD EVEN THOUGH I'M IN THIS

CRAZY

TENSION WITH MY BODY.

DO I BELIEVE THE LORD WON'T

TIGHTEN ME

SO MUCH THAT IT WILL BREAK

ME. I

REMEMBER SMILING THINKING OH

MY GOSH,

I'M REALLY CHANGING. I BEGAN

TO KNOW

HIM.

THAT'S WHERE HE PROVED HIS

LOVE TO ME.

WE LITERALLY WATCHED SONGS

CHASE

AWAY THE LIFE EVEN IN THE

TENSION OF

HER NOT BEING HEALED, IN THE

SONGS I

KNOW IT CHASED AWAY THE

FEARS.

WE ARE SURVIVING.

ONLY I CAN HEAL.

WHAT I WANTED WAS ANOTHER

SUPERNATURAL HEALING.

CALL TO MY HEART, PAVE

AWAY MY

FEARS.

I HAVEN'T BEEN ON MEDICINE

SINCE I

WAS 17 BECAUSE IT DID SO MUCH

DAMAGE.

THE LORD IS ASKING ME TO GO.

HE SAYS I'M GOING TO HONOR

YOUR

HEART.

I SEE THE FAITH AND HOPE THAT

I SEE IN

YOU. I NEED YOU TO GET UP AND

FOLLOW

ME THIS WAY.

I WAS OFF THE MEDICINE IN

MARCH OF

2007.

I BEGAN TO GET FEELING IN MY

HANDS AND

FEET.

I REMEMBER WALKING UP AND IT

DIDN'T

HURT TO PICK UP AIDEN.

HER BEAUTY HAS NEVER

SHADED IN MY

EYES AT ALL.

SHE LOVED JESUS IN A FIERCE

WAY, EVEN

WHEN THE DISEASE WAS HANGING

ON, I

WATCHED HER IN THE FAITH OF

THE GIANT

WHO ARE LYING SAYING WHO YOU

ARE YOU

TO SAY MY FATHER ISN'T GOOD?



A LOT OF PEOPLE LOOK AT ME

AND SAY

YOU ARE NOT HEALED.

BUT I AM SINGING AND HE GAVE

ME WHAT

HE ABSOLUTELY PROMISED, HE

GAVE ME

LOVE, HE GAVE ME GRACE.

THE PROMISE LAND FOR ME HAS

BEEN THE

OPENING OF MY EYES TO SEE THE

LORD FOR

WHO HE REALLY IS.

THE GOOD FATHER INSIDE OF ALL

THE

SUFFERING THAT I WALKED

THROUGH AND

THE SUFFERING I HAVE TO WALK

THROUGH,

IT IS THE PROMISE OF HIS

GOODNESS. *

Gordon: VERY CHALLENGING

VERSUS IN

THE NEW TESTAMENT WRITTEN BY

THE

APOSTLE PAUL WHERE HE TALKED

ABOUT

SOMETIMES HIS PRAYERS DIDN'T

GET

ANSWERED AND THE MESSAGE HE

RECEIVED.

MY GRACE IS SUFFICIENT FOR

YOU.

AND THEN HE WAS ABLE TO TALK

ABOUT THE

FELLOWSHIP OF SUFFERING AND

THEN WHAT

HAPPENS WITH THAT AND HOW

THAT CHANGES

YOU WHERE YOU KNOW JESUS IN A

WHOLE

OTHER WAY.

THAT WHATEVER THE AFFLICTION

IS AND IN

THAT FURNACE OF AFFLICTION,

YOU GET TO

HAVE FELLOWSHIP WITH HIM AS A

MOMENT

OF PASSION WHERE YOU WONDER,

MY GOD,

WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME?

WHY ARE MY

PRAYERS NOT ANSWERED? WHY

ARE THE

HEAVENS, AND IT'S GOOD TO

KNOW THAT

HE'S THERE.

THE GOODNESS IS, GOD IN

WORKING

THROUGH THAT, HE STILL WANTS

TO HEAL

YOU, HE STILL WANTS TO

RESTORE YOU.

HE STILL WANTS TO DO THESE

THINGS.

LET'S LOOK TO THAT HOPE THAT

HE HAS A

PLAN FOR YOU.

AND HIS GLORY IS GOING TO BE

REVEALED

IN YOU.

LET'S PRAY.

LORD, WE LIFT THESE NEEDS.

THOUGH WHO HAVE HAD RECURRING

ILLNESSES, THOSE WHO HAVE

GOTTEN

DEVASTATING DIAGNOSIS.

LORD, WE LIFT THEM TO YOU AND

WE TRUST

IN YOUR UNFAILING LOVE.

SHOW YOUR LOVE THROUGH THEM.

HEAL THEM NOW.

IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN, AMEN.

HERE IS A WORD FOR YOU FOR

OUR LIGHT

AND MOMENTARY TROUBLES,
