I asked God for a word to proclaim over the city of Peterborough today. As it was the start of a weekly city centre chaplaincey role I have, I thought that if I could hear from God a specific ‘word’ it would bring such strength to keep me going when hard times come, if you know what I mean. This is something I have done for years. 1) seek God and what he says. 2) when hard times come then 3) remind the hard times what God says. 4) Bosh on.
The word I believe I heard from God today was ‘I bring healing in my wings.’
As I proclaimed this I had a picture of a massive beautiful swan type bird engulfing and protecting Peterborough. It may sound somewhat strange or a little wacky, but, my goodness, it was a powerful picture. It reminded me as to how massive God is and his longing to bring life to people.
He is good and is in a good mood.
