Your Part and God’s Part

My Website Was hacked

First, just in case you’re wondering… was hacked! So, if you got a strange email from me yesterday, please know that I have not started gambling, LOL. Everything is cleaned up now, and the site is secure. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

The Dance of The Two Camps

This is a short clip from my brand new Miracles Are Normal video class. To order, just click HERE

Have you ever wondered what your part is and what God’s part is in this whole miracle thing? Have you asked, “Is it up to me or up to God? Am I to do something or do nothing?” Have you wondered what obedience or faith is supposed to look like for you in your specific situation? If you’re asking these questions, you are dancing the dance of the two camps. And you are not alone. Both the Shulamite woman in Song of Solomon and Jacob learned that delicate balance between God’s sovereignty and both their power and their inability.

God is sovereign. His power is limitless and available to all by His grace, but it is a spiritual law that God works in the earth realm through us. Many are disillusioned with God because they do not understand this spiritual law and expect God to do for them what He desires to do with them. We see clearly from Scripture that God intends for man to walk in authority and dominion over the earth. 

Then God blessed them, and God said to them, 
“Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; 
have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, 
and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”
-Genesis 1:28, NKJV

The heaven of heavens is for God, but he put us in charge of the earth.
-Psalm 115:16, MSG

Adam was given dominion over all of creation, but he forfeited it. So, your old nature, which is of the DNA of Adam, no longer possesses that dominion. The last Adam, Jesus Christ, now possesses all authority in heaven and earth, and in Him, you do, too, if you are born again. But that authority is realized in your life when you operate out of your oneness with Him, not when you are operating as an orphan, under the influence of the nature of Adam.

And I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. 
I want to do what is right, but I can’t.
-Romans 7:18, NLT

The dance of the two camps is the delicate balance between God’s sovereignty and man’s responsibility. It is the dance of heaven and earth, the wheel within the wheel… God let Jacob win his wrestling dance, so that He could do what He wanted to do all along: bless him. But He also left him with a limp as a perpetual reminder of what Frederick Buechner calls “the magnificent defeat of the human soul at the hands of God.” We see from Jacob’s story that the dance of the two camps is painful, messy…necessary. In the same way, your dance will reveal that you actually have far greater authority (and responsibility) than you imagined. It will also remind you that your flesh is incapable of manifesting your miracle. Co-creating with God cannot be a work of the flesh. Your natural life has limitations, so when you choose to be your own life source, whether out of fear or out of habit, you are embracing impossibility. But the life of Jesus Christ flowing through you cannot help but be miraculous. 

May this be the season of YOUR manifested miracle… as you dance the dance of the two camps!
