Is there more?
My journey with this question began when a great friend of mine was miraculously healed of a rare form of Multiple Sclerosis over the phone. Yes, I said it — over the phone!
Micah had been suffering from this illness for four years and yet he was radically healed in a moment. Even better than that, his testimony was shared in front of thousands of people that very evening, and many more were miraculously healed.
When you experience something like that, you can’t help but let it change you. You start to wonder: “Is there more? Can I see God move like this every day?”
A few months later, I’m driving to a songwriting session. I heard as clear as day, “Wonders are still what you do.” Sitting in the parking lot, I started to write down as much as I could. Later, I presented this idea to my friends Tasha Cobbs Leonard, Tony Brown, and Nate Moore. By the grace of God, this small idea turned into a song for this season. It’s the soundtrack to what I believe is a movement in my local church, and maybe, just maybe, some language to what I believe God is doing all around the world: THIS IS A MOVE!
I’ll never forget the moment Jenn Johnson gave us the assignment for Bethel Music’s Victory Tour. Jenn said that we’re not just there to sing our songs, but we are on an assignment from the Lord to go after healing. And that’s exactly what we experienced — healing after healing. We saw people healed from knee pain, back pain, and chronic migraines to anxiety, depression, and suicidal spirits. You can’t go back when you experience healing like this. It marks you. It messes you up in the absolute best way.
I believe Jesus’ words when He said:
“Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.” (John 14:12-14)
When Jesus said, “they will do even greater things than these,” He was speaking of you.
I’m convinced that when we take on our true identity as sons and daughters of God, courageously live by the Spirit, and feel the compassion of Jesus towards every person — we become a force to be reckoned with. We begin to meet every sickness, disease, and demon with the reality that it has to bow at the name of Jesus. We WILL see God do more than we ever thought possible.
Healing isn’t the only thing Jesus came to do, it was something that He did to love people and point them to the Father.
Join with me in this prayer:
“Dear Jesus, I thank you that Your Word says you forgive all my sin and heal all my infirmity. Thank you for giving Yourself on the cross to make that possible. At this moment, I receive Your Word as truth over my body, mind, and emotions. I receive complete healing for myself because You paid the highest price for me. Where I have believed a lie, replace it now with Your Truth. Where I am unable to understand, help me to fully trust you. Be glorified in my life and my testimony. I am loved, I am healed, I am made whole. Thank you, Jesus!”
