And now, for our final day,
Why the title, She Walks In Power?
One of the reasons I love writing in the Medieval times (besides handsome knights and really cool castles) is that people back then were far more open to the spirit realm than we are today. Our so called "enlightenment" and "Age of Reason", as marvelous as it has been in areas of technology, manufacturing, and general knowledge, has robbed us of our belief in spiritual things, and in particular, spiritual dimensions or realms outside of our own. We tend to not believe in things we cannot see or in things that our god of science cannot explain.
Of course if you are a Bible-believing Christian, then you know these things exist---heaven, hell, angels, demons, God, the devil. At least you should! From recent surveys, I've been shocked to discover something like 50% of Christians don't believe in Satan. Good grief. Then who are we fighting against?
In many ways, medieval people had a huge spiritual advantage over us today. They believed in healing, demon deliverance, prophecy, the forces of good and evil in the spirit realm. Hence, they experienced these things on a regular basis. Unfortunately, they had a huge disadvantage as well. They were forbidden to read the Bible, so they had no true understanding of these things, making it easy for many to associate with dark spiritual forces masquerading as light.
I was very fortunate as a young girl to experience in the early 70s one of the charismatic waves that swept through our nation. I have witnessed healings, tongues and interpretations, prophecies, and demon deliverance first hand. I have also fought spiritual battles in my own family and seen great results. Therefore, it came as a complete shock to me when I returned to the Lord in my 40s and went back to church, that these things were not only never experienced, but they weren't taught either. I'm talking generalities here because I know there are still some churches who believe in the power gifts.
The trouble is, if people aren't taught the gifts and they never experience them, then how can they believe God still does these types of miracles? I believe it is an issue of faith which keeps us from truly experiencing all that God has for us. Even Jesus couldn't do miracles in His home town because of their unbelief.
That is one of biggest reason I wrote She Walks in Power. My hope is that people who read it will open their minds and hearts a little bit more to these awesome gifts God has given His children. I pray they will see that they aren't something spooky or unnatural, but they are natural and should be common among believers. And most of all, they should be sought after for the sole purpose of bringing God glory and uplifting the saints.
Hence, the title "She Walks in Power"
This is my prayer for all who read this book. It comes from Ephesians 1:18-19
That the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us who believe, according to the working of his mighty power
