Ruth Wilson is a typical American young lady in many respects. She’d never seen the mind-blowing power of God up close and personal. But when we take people on the World Race, we expect miracles. We send them out as Jesus sent his disciples in Luke 10. And we’ve seen that his power to heal, often in dramatic ways, is real.
 
So, what would you do if you saw the lame walk, blind eyes opened, and demons fleeing as you prayed? Here’s what it looked like for Ruth as she walked the villages of Andhra Pradesh, India:
In the past 10 days we have got to 27 villages. 3 a day. It has been so intense. Most have never ever heard the name of Jesus. It has been such a time of growth in my life. In each village we have talked to about 100 give or take each time. If my math is correct… we proclaimed the name of Jesus to about 2700 people.
 
Blows my mind how the Lord rescued me from my out of control life and placed me right where He needed me. I feel so overwhelmed and blessed to be where I am. Coming into the village I didnt know how I felt about preaching… that changed super quick. In the beginning I prepared a message and “notes and quotes” but I soon found out that even if I have a huge plan– the Lord will speak through me and I will not say one thing I planned. Its weird how crazy He is like that.




Last thing. I have never been the charasmatic crazy type of girl…. thank you Lord for showing up anyway. I have seen the craziest things in my life recently. As soon as I prayed this little prayer to the Lord he took it very seriously and has showed up for sure. It went a little like this… “uhh God I don’t comprehend this heal the sick raise the dead make the blind see kind of thing… I am just your weak little vessel but Lord if you need me here I am. Forgive my unbelief.”




Legit 2 minutes later a man we were praying over who had a stroke two years ago and hasn’t got off his mat since then got up and walked around!!! Are you freaking kidding me.




From there the Lord continued to show his power and the next day I women who had been blind since birth could see!!!!! whatttt. One lady was hunched over and walked over and asked for prayer.. we start praying and yet again my first words are forgive my unbelief… she needed prayer for her back… and her legs. The freakin lady ran off praising the Lord. I felt as though I was in the bible times!!!



Another old women said she had demon… naw dawg that stuff creeps me out. We prayed… she started convulsing… and shaking and freakin out…. In Jesus name it was freaking gone and she immediately recieved the Lord.
There’s a dark cloud of cynicism and unbelief over America. For Ruth, seeing was believing. Some of us need to join her in places like India. Our faith may be like hers – as small as a mustard seed. But Jesus says, that faith is enough.

  • I have a friend I’ve been talking to recently and she speaks openly that she disagrees that Jesus still heals today. I tell her stories of what I’ve experienced personally, but she thinks it’s just all in the mind. She told me the other day that she’ll believe God still heals today if she sees my mom completely healed from cancer. I laughed and said, “Okay God, is NOT gonna pass this one up.

    Yay this renews my faith! It is wonderful to hear of Jesus’ disciples having the authority to heal the sick and drive demons back to hell! Amen!

  • This is wonderful mission work daddy.I am much blessed to read this.Today I and my prayer team in fasting we will be praying for your all mission work and we will pray Aim Adventures Missions and your visit in Pakistan.May God bless you and all your co-workers.

  • Thanks Seth for the encouraging reminder. In my life the only times God has moved in a “mind blowing” way is when we become real and lay pretense down. He cannot operate in the room with an ego.

  • Thank You, God, for being so mind-blowing! We praise You for your MIGHTY hand, for Your strong arm. For Your miracles that reveal You to those who wouldn’t believe…and for those back home, Lord, help our unbelief!

    Thank You for mustard seed faith. And for Ruth’s beautiful feet! Our God reigns!

  • God can operate in any situation no mater what as long as there is faith the size of a mustard seed and we surrender ourselves to his will. Let God out of the box quit trying to put limits on his unlimited power. The article was awesome I want to see more of that here;however, we are to full of ourselves to allow God do to the work and it would be so easy if we just surrender and give our will and our future to him. Thank you Lord that you are so Good.

  • this is awesome!! I pray that God would do this stuff in the U.S more. I believe He is doing it, I just want to see it a lot more around my community. Thanks for sharing her story

I'm motivated to join God in his global reclamation project. He's on the move, setting his sons and daughters free from their places of captivity. And he's partnering with those of us who have been freed to go and free others.
