Blessings from Being Raised in God’s Word

The Way Ministry and the Word of God have done nothing but benefit my life. Because I have been raised in the Word, every situation, conflict, or need that I have come across in my sixteen years has been perfectly dealt with by my family using the power of prayer, the Word of God, and ministry tools.

A brief example of a time when God blessed and healed me was around two years ago. The basketball season had just started for my high school. I was a freshman and on the team, which was looking very promising. In the third day of practice, however, I landed awkwardly and pulled my hamstring. I was having trouble walking, putting weight on my leg, and it really hurt. The trainer said I would most likely miss the next two weeks. This was so depressing to me because the first couple weeks of practice are so important to seeing where all the players fit on the team.

I arrived at home shortly after and hopped up the staircase to my father’s office. My dad, being a man with a lot of knowledge of the Word, reminded me that I could be healed. He found a few verses on healing; then he prayed. I arose from the office chair and immediately felt better and was healed. I even ran up and down the hallway with a big smile on my face. Another great thing was that I was cleared to play at our next practice. Just a couple of days later I was back at the gym as good as new!

I’ve learned in the ministry that I can always go to God in prayer.

Philippians 4:6:
Be careful [Be anxious] for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

We Are Stronger Together

What has blessed and continues to bless me is spending time with other believers as that helps us grow together as people. Many times in my young life, there were situations where I just needed to be around believers because I knew that we are stronger together than anything. Whenever I need comfort, or I need to express my joy, I know I can go to believers because they are friends that I can trust and laugh with.

I don’t have unbelieving friends because of their negativity. I have a lot going on in my life with school starting soon, and it can sometimes be stressful. Having to deal with schedules, managing friends, and having good grades is all that I think about. But whenever I’m with believers, these thoughts just stop—I don’t think about them anymore, and that is proof as to how easy it is to stop thinking about the world. When I’m with believers, it’s easier for me to deal with things because they have the Word like I do. They know about the world, and believers know how to comfort one another.

I’m very grateful to be raised in this ministry around believers. The Seventy-fifth Anniversary was amazing, and I hope to go to another celebration someday.

I Strongly Recommend the Foundational Class!

The Way Ministry has helped my family understand God and His will for our lives. We love the classes and being able to understand the Bible when we read it. I am thirteen years old and a graduate of the foundational class on The Way of Abundance and Power. My older sister and brother had already taken the class by the time I registered for it on my twelfth birthday! Even though that was only one year ago, the amount of growth that this year carries is tremendous. In the class, I learned about believing, understanding of the Word, and spiritual strength. Little did I know that this class would bring me so much knowledge and sweetness in the Word!

Through the class, I received a greater understanding of God’s heart, a better relationship with our heavenly Father, and knowledge of how to recognize our enemy (the adversary) and DEFEAT him in our day-to-day spiritual competition. I learned about the Grace Administration and our perfect prayer with God, the renewed mind, and the manifestations. These and so many more doorways to my spiritual well-being opened up to me as the class continued.

OK now, I could go on for hours about what I have learned through this experience, but what good is the knowledge if we can’t use it or share it? The boldness the Word teaches us can have a HUGE impact in our lives when we let God show us the way. We can be stronger physically, mentally, and spiritually—all from applying God’s precious Word. We can then share this with others!

My family took in a woman and her two boys to live with us while the dad was deployed overseas in the marines. My mom had met the woman at one of her fitness classes and had witnessed to her. I saw this mom transform as we taught her and her sons how to pray and trust God daily. The mom took the Foundational Class that we ran in our home and was on fire for God. She applied the Word in every category of her life; and as a result, her special-needs son had extraordinary healing and the best school scores he had ever had. Her boys were so insistent that we come downstairs EVERY night to read the Word and pray together!

I also had the privilege to take the class with my best friend from birth. We both have had some extraordinary results in our lives ever since the class. For instance, one day while I was visiting my grandfather in the hospital, I heard an announcement over the intercom: “CODE BLUE.” I did not know what to do. I looked at my mom and she whispered, “Someone has died, speak in tongues.” Well, thanks to the Foundational Class, I knew just how to speak in tongues. Since it was the only thing I could do, I did it with my all. Mom and I spoke in tongues for that patient to have life again. And guess what? HE DID! God made that possible by showing us how to take action even when we didn’t know what else to do. I’m so very thankful to have been instructed on how to manifest God’s power into the very world we live in!

I strongly recommend the Foundational Class for anyone looking to know God, claim His power, and experience overall better living. You can have all this when you rightly divide the Word of God and act on it!

I Wasn’t Afraid because I Remembered the Word

Even though I am only twelve and registered for the foundational class on The Way of Abundance and Power, I wanted to share this victory that I recently experienced. We were at a believer’s home up in the mountains, about one and a half hours from home. We were there for Sunday fellowship with a picnic and pool party. During fellowship I began to have really bad side pains. After fellowship my parents decided to take me to the emergency room, and there I was diagnosed with appendicitis. It was recommended that my appendix be removed. I was starting to get nervous and a little scared, but then I remembered II Timothy 1:7, that God has not given me the spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. I recalled the words to one of my favorite songs from a long time ago with the lyrics, “Do the best you can; God will do the rest.” I had to travel from that small hospital in the mountains to a children’s hospital by ambulance. I wasn’t afraid because I remembered the Word I was taught. My surgery went very well, and I recovered so quickly that I was back home in my own bed by midnight. It was less than twelve hours from the time I left for the first hospital to the time I was home resting peacefully. I think that is a great victory.
