I am still living in the "WAKE" (wake-boarding sort of speak) from the awesome power of our Almighty God in the Florida jail this past weekend. I am humbled as I recall His awesome power and love for the so-called "outcasts" of society. I kept reminding myself: "It just doesn't get any better than this..."

I wish you were with me to have watched God rescue the inmates who were living in the dark choppy waters of life. Some were depressed and exhausted, many with their heads hung low. Yet, before our eyes, God transformed them into women of identity. They received a renewed purpose in life as they raised their hands and said "YES" to Jesus Christ... indescribable. 

"It just doesn't get any better than this!"

  • To feel the power of God's "pull" as He led me through prayer and the message...
  • To feel the power of the Christ's "pull" as He embraced each of us in His love and forgiveness at the foot of the cross. 
  • To feel the power of Holy Spirit's "pull" as we surrendered to Him. I continue to be amazed each time the Spirit lifts us up through prayer... not just the inmates and the team but the Officer shared he was moved as well...

"It just doesn't get any better than this!"

Here are a few tips that I've learned when expecting a great WAKE of miracles:

  1. Listen and prepare... be still and listen for God's voice to speak to you through prayer. Repent yourself, be open to His voice. God is the one who knows which inmates will attend and what message they each need to hear. Then trust that message and prepare for an awesome workout!
  2. Take action... We have to be prepared ahead of time and voice to words; "HIT-IT!" This is a term used for telling the driver (God) that you are ready to be pulled out of the water. Don't be afraid, trust in God's power. You cannot go wrong by showing God's love to the inmates.
  3. Hang on... Don't be alarmed, when you begin to get pulled out of the water, is when the greatest resistance is felt. But as you hang on and grip tighter to God, His love will PULL you through the deep dark waters of the jail. Before you know it, you'll be above the waters drag because God is in control. May I encourage you not to release the rope by getting frustrated with your ministry. Remember this is a Spiritual warfare and jail is right on the front lines. Please bring everything to God in prayer. As our Master throws you the rope, grip tighter to God's promises as He pulls you through the waters of His message.
  4. Expect a great WAKE of God's miracles. This is the best part...

Jesus continues to pass through the jails and prisons, using us to help rescue the inmates out of the dark, choppy waters of this world... for I am still flying high in the WAKE of His miracles in Florida!

"It just doesn't get any better than this!"
