When I first saw this law of the Kingdom in action, I was shocked! I knew that I had discovered something about the Kingdom of God and how it worked. I knew that if this principle worked for THIS, it would work for ANYTHING!
You need to know this—
Just ONE experience with the Kingdom can completely change your life.
Peter is a perfect example.
There he was after he had fished all night and caught nothing. He was probably really tired and feeling pretty defeated.
Then, he listened when Jesus told him to let down his nets, and something shocking happened.
He caught so many fish that his nets began to break and the boat began to sink.
Frantically, he yelled out to his partners, James and John, who were on the shore, to bring a second boat and help him. As they helped Peter, their own boat became so full of fish that it was in danger of sinking, too.
Slowly, the men made it back to shore with the tremendous catch. Then they stood in front of Jesus, stunned and amazed at what they had just seen.
They knew what they had just experienced wasn’t normal. God was clearly involved with what had just happened.
That’s the moment Jesus invited them to follow Him. And the Bible says they didn’t hesitate. They left their boats and nets and followed Jesus.
That one experience with the Kingdom of God changed the entire direction and destiny of their lives.
One experience with the Kingdom will change your life, too.
Just like God used an incredible catch of fish to get Peter, James, and John’s attention and demonstrate the principles of the Kingdom, He will use situations in the natural realm to get YOUR attention and demonstrate the Kingdom of God to you in a real and tangible way. He wants you to stop in amazement and ask, “How in the world did that happen?”
For me, it happened through deer hunting.
DON’T STOP READING if you don’t hunt! Because the principles still apply!
Twenty-five years ago, I had a young family to feed. Money was nonexistent, and I knew very little about the Kingdom of God. I knew a lot about church and the Bible, because I had gone to Bible school, and I was in church, but I didn’t know much about the Kingdom of God.
Now, when I say “Kingdom,” I’m referring to the laws that govern the Kingdom.
See, every kingdom operates through government and uses laws. God’s Kingdom is no different; its spiritual laws can be learned and applied to our lives.
But I had never learned those laws. I still thought, like most Christians do, that God does what He does because He’s God, and no one can really be sure exactly what He’ll do or when He’ll do it.
I loved God, but I was broke and busted. I was sick physically and emotionally, and living totally in survival mode, always looking over my shoulder waiting for the next thing to go wrong.
But God had a plan to get my attention, and it involved one of my passions: deer hunting.
See, I used to hunt with no success. I had hunted for several seasons and came up empty-handed. But one day the Lord spoke to me and said, “Why don’t you trust me for your deer this year?”
I really didn’t know what that meant, but the Lord continued. He said, “I want you to sow a financial seed for that deer, and when you sow that money toward the deer, call it done according to Mark 11:24.”?
Now, I knew Mark 11:24 said, “Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.” So I wrote out my check and wrote on the bottom of it “for my buck.”
To make a long story short, that year I went out and bagged a six-point buck within 40 minutes of being in the woods.
I was thrilled!
Of course, that caught my attention, but our minds always try to tell us that things could’ve happened by chance. So the next year, I tried it again. I sowed specifically for my deer just as the Lord had instructed, and again, I had my deer in less than 40 minutes. I did the same thing the next year with the same result.
Now, I’ve been doing that for more than 25 years.
When I first saw this law of the Kingdom in action, I was shocked! I knew that I had discovered something about the Kingdom of God and how it worked. I knew that if this principle worked for deer hunting, it would work for ANYTHING!
Using the principles that God taught me about His Kingdom, Drenda and I got completely out of debt in just a few short years, and we began to tell everyone we met about the laws of the Kingdom we were discovering.
I want to help you learn what I learned. That’s why I’ve just recorded my book, Faith Hunt, on audio.
Faith Hunt IS FOR EVERYONE, not just for hunters. It will teach you how to apply the principles of Kingdom faith to ANY area of YOUR life.
Just as my life was completely changed by the Kingdom, yours can be, too!
