Miraculous Reconciliation!

I just want to give God a HIGH note of PRAISE for his WONDERFUL, POWERFUL intervention!  I can’t stop praising the Lord for how he has done in about three / four days what I thought was going to take the whole year to do… God is restoring my marriage completely!

Let me preface this by saying that one of my closest Spiritual connections – my South African sister Jennifer – had a prophetic word for me on November 26 last year, where she said in part,

Jennifer: yes….true….well there u go….u won’t even need to lift a finger….THE FINGER OF THE LORD IS POINTING AT YOU and He will work this out!!!!!

And he has been true to his word!

My wife Lesanne went to a leader’s retreat at church over the past couple days and on Saturday came home and lined the whole family up and prophesied to us each in turn… Through her, God told me that I had to pass through the way that I did because he was preparing me for the new season in my life. She prophesied over the entire family as a unit as well – and it was a powerful experience! She was severely impacted by the presence of the Lord while praying and laying hands on us – especially our younger son Jonathan.

But that’s not the best part!

God worked on her over the retreat so that we have become one again! There was a lot of confession, and asking for and receiving forgiveness on both our parts, and all the past has been washed away in the power of the spirit of reconciliation! And, just like Jen prophesied – without me lifting a finger.  Isn’t God AWESOME?

Since that time, we have really been re-linking and really connecting on a deeper level.  We woke up on Sunday and worshiped together, singing songs of praise and worship together on our bed – something we hadn’t done in a LONG time.  I remember when she said, “I love you,”  and I could actually see the love shining from her eyes again – that sight nearly broke me.

After the singing, I, following the prompting of the Spirit, told her that I would put our wedding tape (still VCR, haven’t had it copied to DVD, yet – I know, lazy, right?) in so that we could have it playing in the background while we got ready for church.  Guess what it started on (it wasn’t set at the beginning)?  The first things we hear are the prophetic words spoken over our marriage by the leaders of my house church at that time – an observation that the colours chosen for the wedding were white and gold, and how gold represented the glory of the Lord, and prayer – and that how Lesanne was being called into a ministry of prayer which included me, her husband.  The prophetic symbol for her was a piece of gold coloured cloth that was draped around her shoulders; when the word included me as well the cloth was extended and placed around both our shoulders together.

The prophetic word over me was an encouragement to continue in the prophetic call I had been released in – the call to show the church its dimensions and what it is to look like. Prophetically, I was given a gold coloured straight stick, representing a measuring rod. Ezekiel chapters 40 -42 detail the account of the prophet seeing an angel measuring out the exact dimensions of the Temple area with a measuring rod.  In fact, there was a time that the Lord literally forced me (naturally I was bored out of my skull at the time, but I was compelled!) to read that entire account – and I knew afterwards that this was my call.

That’s what was shown immediately after our prayer time.  Is God saying something to us?  I think so!  He is re-establishing our call together as a couple, and speaking the words over us that he did on our wedding day!

I went with her to her assembly as well that Sunday, and we were touched there powerfully as well.  The sermon was on the fear of the Lord, taken from Acts 9:31, which reads in the NIV –

31Then the church throughout Judea, Galilee and Samaria enjoyed a time of peace. It was strengthened; and encouraged by the Holy Spirit, it grew in numbers, living in the fear of the Lord.

See this same verse in the NASB

31So (A)the church throughout all Judea and Galilee and Samaria enjoyed peace, being built up; and going on in the fear of the Lord and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit, it continued to increase. (my emphasis)

The sermon used the analogy of needing two legs to walk, with the two legs being the fear of the Lord AND the comfort of the Spirit.   That sermon was so powerful…. the congregation was challenged to come forward as the Lord wanted to release a new awareness of the fear of the Lord on us.  Lesanne and I both went forward, and suffice it to say that the Lord touched both of us quite tangibly.  There were tears and shaking and having to be picked up off the floor and everything…

And I took my diamond to lunch as well – the glass of wine went well with our meal … 🙂

We have a lot to thank God for! That’s a major understatement…. I am in awe at the majesty of our God!

Join me in praise and worship and thanksgiving as the Lord has restored us!  I pray that he puts in place what is necessary to continue to knit us together, and I pray that you will continue to pray for us as we seek God’s face together – a pride of lions roaring to our King!

  3. Yeah!!!!!!! AMEN!!!! HALLELUJAH!!!!!! Turning cartwheels!

  4. The thought be faith in little and I will be faithful in much comes to mind. God bless you in the race that has been put before you. I this, “with the two legs being the fear of the Lord AND the comfort of the Spirit.” It takes both legs to run a race if you expect to win….

    • True… need both legs to even stand up properly, far less walk or run….

      “Be faithful in little and you will be faithful in much”…. I like that… promise of expansion…. Lord help me to remain faithful!

  5. AWESOME! Robert I am so happy for you and your dear wife Lesanne. This post is so touching that honestly I don’t have the words to properly comment on it. The Lord is… has… clearly done a new work in your marriage and I am immensely happy for you and Lesanne. All I can say is ..Hallelujah!.. and keep on walking the path the Lord has put you both on. There is a verse coming to mind (I think it is in Proverbs) that says the path of the just shines more and more unto the perfect day! Just stay on the path! Just checked… Proverbs 4:18 is the verse. Be encouraged, my brother! And thanks for this post which really made my week! I am so happy for you!! God bless… or should I say… God has blessed!!!

    • Thanks for your support, Phillip! I’m so glad that the post touched you – it touched ME just as well writing it! lolol…. I pray that this post inspires you to continue to step out in faith and see what God can do! Keep on checking – there is more where this came from… God is an awesome God!!!!!!!

  6. YAY!!!!!!! Praise God! I hope that Benjamin and I are not too far behind. I know we have a great call of God on our lives, and am only waiting to see it manifest. I feel as though we have a long road ahead of us … but truly, only God sees the road. We will take the adventure that comes, right? Praising God for you and Lesanne!! Tell her I said hi, K?

    • Yes! Healing now has to take place for both of us… but God has started a work. I agree with you, only God sees the road, and I pray that neither couple prolongs the healing process by stubborn choices, you know what I mean?

      I KNOW the two of you have a call on your lives together – I am so eager to see what it is and how it unfolds! I WANT to see you both in person and link arms and PRAY down HEAVEN together….

      Just know that I am with you – and whatever you need, WHATEVER you need – just call ….I’ll be there.
