Walking in the Shoes of Jesus:
A Revival of Healing and Creative Miracles
December 29, 2016
The Lord spoke to me recently about His desire for every Believer to walk in the same shoes of supernatural miracles He walked in while He was on the earth. I heard Him say, "Walk in My shoes, for My shoes are made for every Believer to walk in. Do not say My shoes are too big for you or are meant only for an elect few."
My spirit was filled with excitement as I heard this reassuring word from the Lord about the path of miracles He has laid down for us to walk in. As we step into His shoes and follow His example of living a lifestyle of the Kingdom in love, power and humility, we will see miracle after miracle. He longs for us to experience an overflow of healing and creative miracles on the earth today.
Every Day Believers Seeing Every Day Miracles
I see a rising up of everyday Believers daring to believe they could walk as Jesus did, as they follow the path He laid for us to walk in His love and power. Jesus Himself was our example as He raised the dead, healed the sick, walked on water, multiplied the bread and the fishes as He fed the multitudes. He declared, in John 14:12 that, whoever believes in Him will do the works that He did and even greater things than these.
Before Jesus died, He commissioned His disciples into a lifestyle of releasing the Kingdom and walking in supernatural miracles. After Jesus rose from the dead in Mark 16:17-18, He commissioned all Believers into a lifestyle of walking in supernatural miracles as He declared, "This sign shall follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak in new tongues, they will pick up serpents with their hands; and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will recover."
We have received delegated authority as we represent Him as ambassadors of the Kingdom today. The Lord wants to walk with us and through us to release the miracles He did 2000 years ago. He spoke to me about various ways He will partner with us today as we release His Kingdom.
1. Encountering Jesus as We Walk in Supernatural Miracles
The Lord wants to release outpourings of His power on Believers who choose to honor Him in living a lifestyle of releasing the Kingdom. The Lord will work hand-in-hand with those Believers as they take steps of faith to release the Kingdom on earth as is in Heaven.
One of the most humbling miracles I had experienced was the appearance of Jesus to a man with sight problems as He received His healing. Last year, while I was ministering at a revival conference in Norway, I was asked to pray for a Jewish man with sight problems. He was unable to see clearly in one of his eyes and saw people as shadows.
As I was about to pray for him, Jesus reminded me of the miracle He performed on a blind man who He prayed for twice. In Mark 8:22-25, Jesus prayed for the blind man in Bethesda. After He first prayed for him, the man reported that he could see men like trees and not clearly. Jesus prayed for him a second time and then he saw clearly.
As Jesus spoke to me, I felt such excitement that I could step into the shoes of Jesus and see a resurgence of this miracle. I put my hand on the effected eye of the man and prayed quietly asking the Lord to come and put His hand on my hand and bring forth a release of the similar miracle He performed years ago so the man could receive his healing and see clearly instead of seeing shadows!
After I prayed, I asked the man if he could see. With joy and great amazement he said he could see 100 times better than he did before and that he no longer needed surgery which he had been booked for. He then declared to everyone that the moment I removed my hand from his eye, he saw Jesus standing in front of him.
He kept saying that he, a Jewish man, saw Jesus! He did not hear my quiet prayer when I asked Jesus to come and work with me to lay His hand on my hand and repeat the miracle of 2000 years ago when He healed the blind man. The amazing love of Jesus for the man touched my heart. I believe that was a two fold miracle. Jesus came and touched him because He wanted to heal his physical eye, but He also opened his eye to see Him so He could be revealed to him as his Savior.
I also believe Jesus was very much excited to partner with me as He watched me step into His shoes to see what He did 2000 years ago replicated that night. He is so eager to partner with you too as you step in obedience to walk in the lifestyle of miracles He has commissioned you into.
2. He Will Release Power for Creative Miracles to Us as We Walk in His Shoes
In John Chapter 1:1-3, Jesus was declared to be the Word though which everything was created. In Genesis chapter 1, creation came into existence through the creative power of God and His spoken word. Scripture, in Colossians 1:16 declares that everything was created by Him and for Him.
It is interesting to know that the first miracle Jesus performed was a creative one of turning water into wine. Jesus, by His very nature as the Son of God, is One who creates. God called forth creation into existence by calling forth things that are not as though they were. This creative power exists in Believers to call forth God's will and purpose for creative miracles to take place.
Jesus declared that He came to bring us life and life more abundantly (see John 10:10). One of the ways Jesus brought life to folks in His earthly ministry was to release healing. Today there are those who, through sickness or accidents, have missing limbs or organs that are malfunctioned.
I believe God has a vast reservoir of bodily organs in the heavenly realms that we can call forth to replace diseased or missing organs and limbs for those who need healing. The ability to call forth body parts that are needed in a person to experience healing is what I believe to be creative miracles. The ingredients we need for creative miracles are faith and a heart of compassion to see the sick restored to health.
One of the creative miracles I experienced several years ago, was at a conference in the UK when the Lord gave me a word of knowledge for those with painful foot and ankle conditions. Several people responded and as I started praying for one of the women, she fell under the anointing and told me she had a painful foot condition which caused her difficulty in walking because she was born without any arches.
I knew she needed a creative miracle, so I called forth new arches to come from God's heavenly reservoir. As I prayed she told me to look at her feet. She had taken off her shoes and before both our eyes her arches began to form. We were amazed and thankful to God and she got up and was able to walk without any pain!
If you are reading this and have any infirmity where you need a new body organ: we call it forth in the name of Jesus in your body, so you can experience the fullness of divine health that Jesus purchased for you on the Cross!
Step into His shoes right now as the Spirit of God activates you in your calling as a miracle worker this hour. All you need is simple faith and a readiness to step into this pool of miracles with our Lord. This pool of glory increases the more we step in obedience to pray for the sick as our Lord commands.
3. Miracles Will Break Forth in Unplanned Situations
This is an encouraging reminder from the Lord for the Church. Do not forget who you are in Him in any situation. I hear this encouraging word from the Lord, "Do not take off your shoes for the the shoes Jesus fitted you with are to be worn in all situations."
How apt is this Scripture for the hour, Ephesians 6:15 says we are to have our feet fitted with the readiness which comes from the Gospel of peace. I believe the Lord is saying we need to be ready in all situations as Heaven will break in unexpected places.
Just before Christmas last year, I was home in London from an extended ministry trip enjoying a time of rest. While at home on one of those afternoons my phone rang. It was a neighbor who sounded extremely distressed and was panting in pain as she spoke to me on the phone telling me how she just had an accident at home with boiled water poured on her.
She told me to come over and get her an ointment from the pharmacist to relieve her pain. I went over to her place and saw how the hot water had scalded her leg with her skin peeled off and the raw flesh underneath revealed. As I described this injury to the pharmacist, when I went over to buy her the ointment, he told me they had nothing that could take care of that kind of injury and she needed to be seen at the hospital. I went back to recount this to my friend who was still in significant pain. I called the hospital emergency to come and tend to her.
As soon as I came off the phone, I heard the Lord speak to me asking why I hadn't prayed for her? Though I had seen Him work many miracles in meetings and on the streets (in a moment of honesty) I realized that I seemed to have forgotten that I had my feet fitted with the readiness of the Gospel of peace.
I realized I was to walk in these shoes in all seasons, ready to release His miracles and the Gospel to those who needed it. I was thankful for the Lord's timely reminder. Though I was at rest that day, I needed to walk in the shoes of Jesus who declared in John 5:17 (in response to those who criticized Him for healing on the Sabbath – a day of rest), that He worked because His Father was always at work.
I prayed for my neighbor to be healed in Jesus name and then went home. About 10 minutes later, she called me and said the moment I prayed for her the terrible pain that ravaged her totally left her. A few minutes later, I heard my doorbell ring. She was at my door with a huge smile wearing her coat to go out. She had no more pain and told me that the hospital ambulance came to take her to the hospital and she told them she didn't need them as she was fine!
Friends, the Lord wants to use you to bring forth healing revival in your day-to-day walk with Him on this earth! Hear the Lord cheering for you to pick up the mantle and walk in His shoes of miracles that He's laid out for you, and step into all He has prepared you for. Your destiny is to experience the miraculous just as Jesus did!
