Crazy, Awesome, Faith!

Okay, so every year I try to re-read some of Smith Wigglesworth's books, and I started off with Smith Wigglesworth - Apostle of Faith. This book always stirs me up!!! In one part of the book he explains how once in Norway people had found out he was going to be at a certain place, and as he got there the people had filled the place plus there were cars surrounding the building with all kinds of sick people in them. The interpreter asked what they should, so Smith takes off his coat and ",...got into every wheeled vehicle there and prayed for people." He went on to say that there "...was great shouting in the streets as God healed them;..." Then he went inside and healed the people there. But that wasn't the end. Later they sat down to eat, the phone rang and the person on the other end said that the Town Hall was full and thousands were outside. When Smith got there two police men took a hold of him and pushed him inside where the people were packed in. As he began to minister the Lord said over and over "If you will ask Me, I will give you every soul." As he asked, Smith said the Holy Spirit rushed in and cries for mercy filled the area!
Praise God!!!! What Crazy, Awesome, Faith he had. Oh Lord that we would come to such a state of dependency upon you that we would step out in faith as this.
I don't know about you, but this is the kind of move of God I want now, and greater!!! Let's believe God for it. Let us believe that God so wants to fill us and cause us to be "...a partaker of the divine nature through His great and precious promises." S.W.
