Stay still

Joshua 5:8 Now when they had finished circumcising all the nation, they remained in their places in the camp until they were healed. Just imagine the entire nation being circumcised and sitting in their respective places!

THEY REMAINED IN THEIR PLACES IN THE CAMP UNTIL THEY WERE HEALED: Wow, these lines directly spoke to me because we are too busy running around with jam-packed agenda and dead-lines, sometimes God, Bible, prayer and fasting is not in our agenda at all.  God becomes curry leaves in the lives of busy people, God knows how to get our attention. The people of Israel while they were getting healed, had time to meditate the goodness of God in bringing them through from Egypt.  He did that for me when I became bedridden during my second pregnancy , while 5 months pregnant, I was diagnosed with multiple fibroids in the uterus , the doctors strictly ordered me not to move from the bed.  It is during this period that I started thinking of God and His Word in the emergency ward at hospital, I opened the Bible for the first time and started reading from the beginning. My hospital room turned into a church where I met the Lord Jesus Christ and I got saved.  .Amen.

While I was still working, God opened a full-fledged out-reach ministry, prayer-cell ministry in the office and I was even invited to preach among doctors in hospitals, IT professionals and various other places. We had started our all-night-prayer services as well, once in a month. Beginning of 2004, I received a call from the Lord for full-time commitment, when I fasted and prayed, God gave me a clear indication to resign the job. It was a major decision in my life, while my elder daughter was 12 years old and my son was just four years old. I determined my heart to obey the Lord and follow Him. When I resigned and walked out of the bank, I had to walk out on many other things as well. I had to walk out on our beautifully air-conditioned apartment, give up luxury and give up on many other things as well.  I was floating in the air with the thought that God was going to immediately increase the borders of my present ministry. After my resignation, when I had to stay at home and wait for further instructions from the Lord, the first thing I did was to get into my prayer closet. I never knew that I would be locked up there!

God slowly closed every door of our ministry. Hey, what’s happening? I did not know! People who used to call me for outreach ministry stopped calling me. Not knowing what to do, I started spending time only in fasting and prayer. Have you ever prayed until your mouth pained and your back ached? I did! It was a hard place to endure, “inactivity” was killing me but God kept me there and trained me for the ministry that He had kept in store for me. God had to break my self-will and teach me to obey His will. Be still and know that He is God!
