The Start of my Adventures Walking with the Holy Spirit

In May 2014, during my quiet time in the morning.

After a session of reading the bible, meditating on the verses for that day, and time in prayer. I stayed silent before the Lord, waiting if He had something to say, with His still quiet voice in me through the Holy Spirit. While on my knees, with my head on the floor, I went into a dream state.

In this dream, I retreated into a room for prayer. While praying, I found myself trembling, and the strong presence of God entered the room, and I felt a burning sensation on my hand. Still trembling, I heard the voice of the Lord said, “Look at your hands child, they are used for healing. Go and study the book of Mark.” I woke up from the dream after that, but my hands had the sensation of burning, pins and needles.

Was it just a dream?

After that morning, I started studying the healing verses in the bible, read through the book of Mark and read books from the great healing ministries in the 1920s of Smith Wiggleworths and John G. Lake. I compiled a little note book with all the healing verses that I could find in the bible, and sought to understand them based on the verses’ ┬ácontext in the chapters of the bible.

I slowed down on the reading after a few months, until August that year.

During that period, I was studying about the concept of the Holy Spirit and was intrigued about the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. I was certain that despite having the Holy Spirit in me, at the point of accepting Jesus as my Saviour, I have not experienced the Baptism of the Holy Spirit.

I prayed and asked the Lord if I could have the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, right there that evening, at the bench next to the playground, where the boy was playing with his friends.

Later that same week, my mom shared that she had to go for a short operation due to post menopausal issues and was fearful that it could be a malignant tumor. Immediately, I laid hands and I prayed for her for God’s healing.

That night, the boy experienced a bout of high fever. I prayed for the fever to leave him, and it did after a while. Later that night, I had a prompting from the Holy Spirit, “Now go and pray for your mom.” I took my bible, selected the verse that I wanted to read out to her and went into her room.

I told her, that I wanted to pray once more again for her for complete healing. So I knelt down next to her bed, laid my hands on her lower abdomen and prayed for her. As I prayed healing verses over her problem, I started trembling. I was shaking, trembling all over and my teeth started chattering. I knew it wasn’t some sort of fit, neither was it a muscle spasm, but it was involuntary and I could actually speak to my mom calmly despite the shaking and trembling. My mom was surprised to have witnessed it, but she agreed it was God at work.

Once the trembling stopped, I showed her what I wrote in my devotional notebook for May 15 2014, and the feeling of trembling in the dream was exactly how I experienced that night when I prayed for her. And shared about the prayer I made in that same week about having the Baptism of the Holy Spirit.

She confirmed that I have indeed experienced the Baptism of the Holy Spirit from the Lord. And two weeks after, she was declared by the doctor having no problems with her health.

What changed after the Baptism?

Well, I can attest to the benefits of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit listed out here in this article, and there is one more marked difference, I have more boldness and courage when it comes to praying for others after this experience with the Lord.

So that’s how it begun.

Now whenever a door opens for me to pray for the sick or for prayer for anyone that needs the intervention of God in their situation, I will go wherever He leads me to.
