God's Mysterious Ways: "I Cried Out To God, 'What Are You Doing to Me?' He Said. By Prophet Bill Yount. Week One Reading.

I felt I could no longer endure the painful trial going on in my life for so long. In frustration, I cried out to God. "What are You doing to me?" He said, "I'm making a man of God out of you!" He continued, "I did not cause your pain but I'm using it."

The orthopedic doctor calls it a frozen shoulderJesus calls it healed. It's a muscle beneath the shoulder that becomes locked up and is painful. The orthopedic doctor said, "You must stretch your arm to loosen that muscle. Here are six exercises twice a day for six weeks including hanging on a bar. You must stretch your arm until it hurts. Then lean into the hurt and count for twenty seconds with excruciating pain and then repeat." After a few exercises I thought about the doctor, "He's got to be kidding me! It feels like I'm tearing my muscle apart. Like I'm ripping it out of my arm."

Is It a Good Pain or a Bad Pain?

He also advised me to visit a massage therapist. As she was working on my arm muscle I had to let her know something. "It hurts! That's painful!" She asked me a question, "But is it a good pain or a bad pain?" I said, "I am a no pain person."

I was told if you want to recover faster, you can have someone else stretch your arm because they will pull it farther than you would. I thought to myself, "How stupid is that?" But in desperation to end this ordeal, I chose a physical therapist to stretch my arm. The pain was so great, I laughed. I said to him, "Am I going crazy? Why did I laugh when I felt the worse pain of my life?" He said, "That's your release! That laughter is your release!"

I now believe pain can be an ingredient of laughter. I promise if you are now in pain that is beyond words, there will be a time when you will laugh again, and even drown in God's laughter. "Blessed are you who weep now, for you shall laugh." Luke 6:21

There was a time when my pain almost stopped my ministry. On a ministry trip I became powerless to the pain that justified me not going to the next meeting. My wife and I prayed, but no relief. I phoned home to our intercessors for prayer. One intercessor, after praying, said, "Bill, you are on a mission. God has sent you there. You can trust Him." Something clicked in my spirit. I dragged my body to that meeting. The moment I stood up to minister the pain left me.

After the meeting it returned with a vengeance. It fought me to the next meeting two days later. When I got up to minister it left again and then followed me home. As this took place with many of my meetings, something dawned on me. I am stretching my spiritual muscles! I want to encourage you. Sometimes you must walk through some stuff to get to where God is. But remember, you are on a mission and the great I AM has sent you!

Spiritual Frozen Muscles in the Body of Christ

Golden and silver trumpetsMany times what I experience in my physical body is what is going on in the Body of Christ. I sense the Lord showing there are some spiritual frozen muscles in His Body.

And I hear the Lord saying, "You need to stretch those muscles. Stretch until it hurts! Many of your healings will come while you are being stretched by others. I am stretching you this season out of your frozenness. I am stretching your arms farther than you would like, so they can reach around a world full of pain, sin and brokenness.Those frozen muscles will thaw from the fire of My Spirit as you allow Me to stretch you."

Being Stretched Against the Odds

A woman kept standing for the healing of her husband who suffered a stroke, leaving a third of his brain dead. The doctor said to her, "He will never fully recover and will be a vegetable the rest of his life." The woman said, "No, by the stripes of Jesus he is healed." The doctor got upset with her and said, "I don't think you are taking me seriously. I have been doctoring these cases for thirty years." The woman responded, "Jesus has been healing longer than that!" Nine days later he walked out of the hospital whole.

"And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden (the enemy's burden)shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing." Isaiah 10:27

After several months of pain, prayers of many, stretching exercises and some laser treatment, my frozen shoulder is finally loosed. The pain is gone. God has intervened again in my life.

But I have noticed something. If I don't keep stretching, the muscle will freeze again. It's the same spiritually. Lord, help us to keep stretching and allowing You to stretch us beyond our pain.

Amen..and Amen. (Hebrews 13:3) Keep on loving one another as brothers and sisters, Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels unaware ( without knowing it). Continue to remember those in prison, ( not only in solitary confinement) but in trespasses and sin, as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering. My heart hurts with pain for those who don't know Jesus, and have not excepted  Him as their personal Lord and  Savior in the pardon of their sins. I feel the pain in my own body. I ache for there souls to be delivered. and continually pray for them, being kind and loving them. (Job 6:4)  Anyone who withholds kindness from a friend forsakes the fear of the Almighty. Be kinder than necessary, for everyone we meet is fighting some kind of battle. Everyone is dealing with something. Take the opportunity to put a smile on your face and a kind word in your mouth and actually BE the love of God to someone who needs it more than you. With love and kindness have I drawn men. No matter how much we ourselves are in pain and hurting, we must be busy about our FATHER"S business. 

Wow.  God help me to understand to stretch through the pain.

Daughter he is helping you right now.

Being in the School of the Prophets is stretching me out of my comfort zone and it feel good. my mine went on the children of Israel in Egypt they had to make brick with out straw but on the way out they had jewels of silver jewels of gold an raiment. pain now favor.

God spoke us into existence and has given us power to speak to our bodies.  Mark 16:17-18 And these signs shall follow them that believe; in my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with tongues; 18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; They shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.  My granddaughter has suffered from stomach pain for 2 years consistently everyday.  When googling a cure for this disease, it gave a list of types of medicine and also included prayer as one because it soothes the pain while listening.  Yes it does and it heals in the name of Jesus. Body I command you in the name of Jesus to perform a perfect work, not to accept any pain, In the Name of Christ Jesus and according to the power of his holy word you are healed and made whole.  

 

Amen jesus amen jesus.... wow. This was right on time. Its so crazy. Im 23 years old will be 24 next months and ive been through and overcame soooooo much. But lately I feel im being stretched. I would sit there cryimg like why is it gettimg worse. And god told me im stretching u out. im alowing certain things to happen for your good. So I changed the way I was thinking. And I look at things spiritually .... I know that once this process is done gods going to give me the power to heal and help those who cant help themselves. I started laughing at things.... there would be times when I cried and I started laughing.... when the day comes when income up out, i will look back at the things I went through amd laugh and smile. I know my assignmemt to save the lost souls, save those who cant help themselves. So I saw lord stretch me. I will come out victorious. I won. Through the pain I smile. And keep pushing. We won. In jesus name ... this was a great article

Taking this eight week course on line is stretching me because it's taking me out of my comfort zone, computers scare me because I think if I touch the wrong button I am going to mess something up or I am going to lose what I am working on at the time, so this is like a test to overcome the fears of the unknown about computers. I believe God will take what you fear and use it to mole and shape your life how he desire to shape it, he uses the test and trials of life to mold us into servants fit for kingdom building, we are made whole through our pain and suffering, overcomers and victorious through Christ. We have to continue to stretch beyond our pain and fears in order to be made whole in Jesus Christ.

Everyone is dealing with something and it's all in how we deal with it that counts, we can go through with a smile on our face or we can go through being bitter, but God wants us to endure like good soldiers as we be about our fathers business.

Wow! This is awesome! It makes so much sense when you can look at your natural situation, be it a relationship or physical case and understand it from a spiritual stand point. God gives us spiritual signs in the form of a vision, dream, pain, relationship or some other way to get us to understand the war fare that is going on around us.

Often times when we ourselves are going through a trial, that is when God uses us the most to be a witness and to minister to others. We know that out of our pain produces much for the Kingdom when we push pass the pain.

Life's lessons can be tough, but we know that having the grace and mercy of God we are strong and mighty,

We can do all things through Christ that strengthens us!

This is the most encouraging thing I am read in a long time it opens my eyes too so much. I felt the scales coming off my eyes as I read this article. But I also feel bad because people are still frozen spiritual and have not stretched their spiritual muscles. My question is this how exactly do you stretch your spiritual muscles I know this man of god said he kept doing God's work the mission God sent him to do but is that all?

This is the business. It reminds me how I have been fighting Him to walk in my calling. There is more growth more stretching that the Lord wants in my life. Someone once said another level another devil. As soon as we grow there will be trails to prove us to be where God has taken us. Pain is a major part of growth.
