A Special Treat From the Father
One evening, the loving Father gathered some of his children together & said, “I have a special treat for you tonight!”
Magically, he took them to Nepal and showed them a young Mom. From a Hindu background, and having borne 3 daughters but no sons, she found her identity not from her Nepali culture but from being a daughter of her Father. Confident & purposefully she strides through her days, training other young Nepali ladies about the incredible freedom of being in the family!
Then they were transported to Egypt. They saw secret gatherings of thousands of Muslims who’d had visions and dreams of Jesus Christ and were now also in the family.
Then to China where a woman falsely accused and under house arrest, began seeing her captors as her children that she loved dearly. She experienced her Father in that room with her each day of that house arrest, infusing her spirit with hope, with love, yes even with joy. And when she and her husband were finally freed, government officials in their homeland, with tears in their eyes, recognized the miracle they had witnessed.
Then they landed in Uganda, East Africa, and saw Christian women befriending the wives of soldiers, sharing meals, learning their hearts’ cries.
And on to Jordan, where Christians reached out in love to the thousands and thousands of refugees who had fled incredible violence and destruction in their homeland. They saw hundreds come into the family! Shortly afterwards they moved to new homes around the world taking the wonderful news of this family with them! And the Christians in Jordan realized that they, in helping these refugees, were themselves totally revived in their love for the Father.
The Father transported his children east to the Philippines. His daughters there operate a mandatory parental-training program for the thousands of slum dwellers of Manila, sharing practical knowledge and the news about the family they can join. Many of them have, and now know hope and freedom as children of the Father.
At the end of this evening, the Father said to his children, “Well, what do you think? I’ve given you this special treat tonight so that you may know that I am still really active all over the world. And so that you may have confidence that I am also working in Canada. Let my love and power strengthen you as you go through each day. I’m doing infinitely more that you can imagine!”
(This special treat from the Father was the Celebration of Nations that took place during the Women Together International Leadership Forum, “CALLED: It’s Time for More: Equipping Women for Purpose, Passion, & Influence”. October 2018)
