This week I have decided to do a small series on my blog. Many times I can be studying and the Lord will give me different revelations during my study time. Typically a diary is much more personal, but I do plan to continue to share personal life experiences as I always do in each of my post. Just to also update everyone, I am currently working on my blog bi-weekly just because it is much easier for me to maintain for right now. I am currently working two different jobs and I am still a full time student serving here at a large capacity.
So last week I was at my daycare job and I was relieving two teachers for their break. Before leaving she told me that one of the kids who was having a hard time taking his nap seems to have autism. He has not yet been diagnosed, but it seems to be obvious through various traits he carries. Now I went to lay beside him on the floor and had to keep placing him back on his cot after he tried to get up several times. Now in the process of trying to get him to lay down he scratched me in the face twice and tried to pull my hat over my eyes. In my head I literally said, “Nah, we not even about to do this.” Suddenly something rose up in me that said to pray over him and against autism. I also prayed a peace over him that he would relax. What took two teachers over two hours to do, God did in less than 20 minutes. It was absolutely amazing. As I was praying he just looked up at the ceiling, and slowly began to fall asleep. I got up and I looked up a few scriptures. I read about how Jesus spoke to the fig tree in Matthew 21:18-22. In this he spoke the death of the fig tree. I thought it was so amazing that Jesus was able to speak the fig tree to wither.
Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.
This experience was so encouraging for me to know now that I can speak to something because of the power and authority God placed on the inside of us since the beginning of creation. Doubt and worry cause us to believe that this is not possible and there is no way that we have that much power. I share all this to say be encouraged in what you speak today. Speak life into every situation and know that God is working it all out for your good. Love you all so much and I pray that this entry encourages you today.
