The more time I spend with the Lord in prayer, my heart is overwhelmed with how kind and gentle He actually is. I used to find myself so busy in my pursuit of success that I was extremely annoyed by any interruption, especially if it was something or someone who seemed unimportant. Thankfully, the closer I get to God, the more these unsavory ways are changing.
Today, when I was waiting for my family to come into the car, a rugged-looking homeless man approached me. From a distance, he gently nodded to get my attention. As gently as I could, I asked him to come closer, so I could hear what he had to say. He told me his need, and I was able to meet his exact request. He rushed off with the biggest smile on his face!
The joy that flooded my heart stayed with me all day long. I realized why God is so gentle, so kind, and so patient. I used to think power, money, and other fleshly things would bring me happiness. It never happened! True joy and happiness comes in fulfilling the needs of others. It is such an upside-down view of everything. Giving is actually receiving the best part of joy in life.
Kindness, gentleness, and patience are the fruit of the Spirit. Using these in our daily interactions with people causes our lives to bloom with Love and Joy-filled light. This light is so bright, it gets the attention of all those around you, which leads to promotion and advancement. Matter-of-fact, nothing can keep you down when this spiritual process begins bringing meaning out of your life.
Each morning I realign myself through worship of Christ and His holy name. As I worship Him early in the morning, I begin thinking of ways to share His love with every person I meet, especially those who appear unimportant. This kindness, this gentleness, this patience, becomes so infectious that the light it creates dispels any shadow of darkness.
Many of us have prayed that God would change America, Europe, and the entire world with the beaming light of His love. But erroneously, we have thought change would come by pointing out the things that are dark and ugly. This is not His way. God’s way is by His light, a light that is soft, gentle, and bright. When you turn it on, darkness runs away on its own.
This was an amazing phenomenon I saw as a young man during the Hippie movement of San Francisco in 1967. My mother, Marilyn Gazowsky, went with her accordion to Haight and Ashbury and there she saw some of the darkest young people that the world had ever conjured up. But she showed the light of the love of Christ, the gentleness of Jesus, and the simple truth of the gospel.
We had no complicated programs to sign up for. It was just Jesus and His love healing people, miraculously by the Spirit, curing them instantly of drug addiction and all kinds of problems. I saw this with my own eyes! During my mother’s ministry, we had over 16,000 people baptized. That was the kindness and the gentleness of the love of Christ!
The earth is being filled with the New Renaissance in every nation. It is not some mechanical system, and it is not a religious program. It is just God‘s love directed toward each person. I recently held a prophetic meeting with Timothy Snodgrass, Vello and Ingallil Vaim, Peggy Cole, my wife Sandy, and Misty Dejavu Gazowsky. They prophesied over our country, and I saw a huge blanket the size of America made of light.
The angels of God were covering our country with light. The darkest prison became bright, the prisoners’ eyes were opened, and they were able to clearly see the difference between right and wrong. The darkest drug den was lit with the love of Christ and men and women were freed from their addictions. All of this healing through the power of His light!
If you go to my Periscope page, you can see this prophetic meeting from 11 days ago live. It is titled “Peggy Cole, Timothy Snodgrass, and Vello Vaim giving a word to America”. God is bringing His gentle and kind patience to all of us. He is healing our nation!
Sent in love,
