Learning the Word was the delivering factor this ministry brought to my life.
I am filled with such joy and thankfulness when I reflect on that day, almost thirty-five years ago, when a believer spoke the Word to me, and I was introduced to The Way Ministry and invited to come to a home fellowship. That was my first victorious answer to prayer shortly after pouring out my heart to God to “show me the way”—the way of truth. This victorious answer to prayer has reverberated through my life with an impact. Since then, there was no looking back for me!
Standing over the years has taught me how effective prayer is in my personal life, and I learned the benefits of speaking in tongues. I was fully persuaded that what was taught was the truth of God’s Word rightly divided. That gave me great confidence—in overcoming fears and challenges in day-by-day living, knowing that I now have all things that pertain to life and godliness through the knowledge of Him that has called me to glory and virtue.
Knowing that I have something so meaningful to give to others has also been my joy. I have been able to teach my children as I learned and marveled at the greatness of God’s Word and His love, and I have seen them grow to stand faithfully and to teach the Word to their children. They have the truth of God’s will to sustain and nourish them for the rest of their lives. As a mother, this brings me great rest.
Being able to help others through the power of prayer and believing to see answers come to pass has been a wonderful avenue for ministering to people I meet. It brings to mind one occasion of witnessing while on vacation. I received a prayer request while casually chatting and sharing the love of God’s Word. I did pray boldly with this person, who then in her joy went and called her friends to come to meet the “prayer warrior,” as they referred to me, to pray with them also. They sure bubbled with joy.
Receiving the Word and learning it has been the highlight of my life. Knowing God is my sufficiency in all of life’s situations, I continue to learn and live His Word more and more, seeing myself the way God sees me. I stay thankful to God through our Lord Jesus Christ, for His love, care, and protection I’ve seen over the years, and for learning how to apply His Word in day-by-day living. He has truly called us to the way of abundance and power.
