Word for Today:  October 14


A Miracle of the First Order

One of the greatest illustrations of God’s Power being released through praying in the Spirit happened to me back in the late 70’s when I was invited to teach in a leadership conference being held in Santiago, Chile, South America.

My assignment was to teach on the infilling of the Holy Spirit to a group of Methodist leaders who had come from many districts in Chile to attend the conference.  Included were some of the most influential and professional individuals of their districts.  When my interpreter (from English to Spanish) failed to show up, I was faced with an insurmountable difficulty.  It was impossible (in the natural) to communicate with the class of about 30 who had chosen to learn about the Holy Spirit and His present-day work in the Church.  As I waited it became apparent that this was going to be a monumental failure and a total, embarrassing fiasco.

In utter frustration, I began to forcefully pray out loud in the Spirit.  Needless to say those in the meeting were somewhat startled.  But suddenly the room was filled with the Power of God.  Everyone stood to their feet.  It was apparent that God was doing Something supernatural.  Then the interpretation that came forth was miraculous.  Those in the class heard and understood what I was speaking in my Prayer Language in their native language, Spanish.   Joy flooded our meeting those present began to praise and worship God in their own personal Spiritual Language.

They later told me (through the interpreter who finally arrived) that they received instruction on how to receive the Infilling of the Holy Spirit.

And they all did.

It was a Miracle of the First Order
