As I think about what is going to transpire within the next 40 days as we get closer to the “Breathe Conference,” my heart is overcome with great joy, anticipation and expectation of our Mighty God.

I believe that we are on a quest with God as He is looking to impart His Word into the hearts of His daughters.  God has laid it upon my heart to start a blog, specifically for the conference.  At first, I thought it was for those just attending the event, but then I realized it was for all to see.  God is looking to build His faith, hope and love into the hearts of His people.

So the journey began for me back in December 2012, as I sought God on what He desired for EHM to accomplish in 2013.  He told me that one of our missions would be to hold a conference.  To be honest, I thought God was crazy.  How could God expect us to sponsor, organize, and conduct a conference when I felt within my heart that we were such a young and obscure ministry?  I thought, who does He think we are – Joyce Meyer Ministries?  Isn’t that how we always think – How could God use me?… I’m just saved…. I’m not experienced enough…. I’m not equipped to do what He called me to do.  That, my dear friend, is the beginning of the journey for all of us.   God isn’t looking for experience – all put together people who are thoroughly equipped, but He desires for His people who hunger to have a heart for Him, to know Him and to be used by Him for His glory.  God desires to reveal a deeper side of Himself to each of us and that is exactly what He is doing with me and the team of EHM.

Our journey to fulfill His wishes continued to evolve as God spoke this verse over me:

“This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: Not by might, nor by power; but by my Spirit, says the LORD Almighty.” – Zechariah 4:6. I knew this year would be a year of complete dependence, utter trust and total surrender to Him.  This project had nothing to do with my ability or anyone on the team, but the complete works of God, Himself.  God was taking each of us to a new level of experience, expectation and awareness of Who He is and how mighty He is.  He is teaching each of us to obtain a greater revelation of Him.  The heart of God is for His people to know Him in an intimate way.  He longs to dwell among His people and give them love, direction, hope and assurance.

So the excursion ventured on as God directed our first steps to the location of where we would facilitate the conference.  I must say, it was a test of faith.  So many times I felt like Abraham and Sarah.  It was first walking in obedience to God’s direction, then it was standing firm in what He had stated, to then trusting He would be faithful in the end.  I still recall how my faith was tested in Him as I had to really press on.  It was a battle for me.  What transpired within a few days seemed like years to me.  I was second guessing myself, “Did I hear God correctly?  Do I really know His voice?  I would rise early in the morning to continue to seek Him.  I was literally at a point of desperation, because all I wanted was to make sure that I knew His voice.  Nothing else mattered to me.

I began to wrestle within myself, and thought maybe this isn’t the right direction, so I decided to take matters into my own hands, going to plan ‘B’.  However, the lesson was this: when the Teacher gives a test, He doesn’t speak, but waits to see how you respond.  This was how it was for me – God was waiting to see how I was going to respond to His direction.  I dropped plan B and went back to His original direction.  By Saturday afternoon of the following week, God’s faithfulness was proven and He opened doors that no man could close.   I knew right then and there that this Breathe Conference was far greater than my mind could perceive.  He reaffirmed within my spirit, the works of this event would not by might, nor by power, but by His Spirit.

So over the next 40 days, we are going to continue to share with you all the wonderful events that God has done in preparing us for the conference in September, as well as, preparing each of our hearts for Him.

We want you to be a part of this journey with us.  I believe God desires to impart revelations of Himself to each of your hearts.  He wants each of us to come with an expectancy of Him to work within our lives.  I firmly believe this Breathe Conference has nothing do with EHM, we are just facilitators being used by God, but it truly is an event He ordained for you and Him.

Join us over these next 40 days, and see what God does; then I ask you to join us on September 13th and 14th to experience your own encounter with Him.  I will close with one final thought which is not my own but the very heart of God spoken to me for each of you: “My heart is to breathe Myself into each one – not one will go unnoticed – each one will be touched by Me, for I will not turn away to whom I have drawn to Me.”

My heart, O God waits for you and to see you move, for in you, we live, move and have our being.

In Him,
Melissa
