AUDIENCE: [APPLAUSE]

DONNA: Well good day to every one of you! I’m so excited to be here with Sid Roth! What an amazing studio we’re in, a studio where the presence of God is real and miracles take place every day! I’m excited to share, and by the way my name is Donna Schambach. I’m excited to share with you something that I’ve been carrying around in my spirit for a very long time! And you know I have been one who grew up in a miracle ministry. I’ve been able to see a lot with my eyes. I know that every time that Jesus shows up in a service He comes to meet the needs of people. He doesn’t overlook people. But we all come in the same way. We all come to him with faith. Faith is the common denominator that opens the door to the miracle! But I believe we’re in an interesting time and I believe that God is bringing His people through a season of dryness where it seems we haven’t seen miracles like others have seen. And maybe there have been some who have had besetting illnesses in their life or besetting pressures. And it’s not that we don’t believe in Jesus. It’s not that we’re not saved. It’s not that we don’t believe the Word but it just seems like we’ve had a hard time breaking through. Has anybody been in that place? See you’re not alone because every place I travel I see that the Church is in this condition and I’ve asked the Lord why? And so I believe God gave me an answer to that question because for too long now unfortunately as a Church, not everybody, but collectively as a Church we have heard too much teaching that only deals with our individual needs! We’ve been very self-focused. We’ve become a community of navel gazers. We’ve thought about OUR needs. My wife, my two kids, us four and no more, basically! And what I really believe that God wants us to do is to get back to the disciplines and get back to the things that actually put us in contact not just with the power of God but put us in contact with the purpose of God! The purposes of God. Now we’ve all had these self-actualization spiritual trips where what’s my ministry and what’s my anointing? And you know I don’t know that that’s necessarily Biblical. I mean Jesus does give gifts to the Church that vary but you know really it’s not about us!

AUDIENCE: That’s right.

DONNA: It’s about their purpose! Right? To raise up those, right, that can understand the Word so that they can grow up into the full stature of not a Schambach person but a Jesus person! The full stature of Christ, right? So I’m going to submit something to you and then I’m going to read some scripture. I want you to think about this for a few minutes. Maybe that miracle that you need, maybe that breakthrough that you are waiting for, maybe that denial that it seems that God has given you, maybe it’s not just about you!

AUDIENCE: Mm. [APPLAUSE]

DONNA: Maybe you are being targeted by God to break through to a new level of faith and surrender to His purposes for this generation! For a generation that needs to know that Jesus is alive and still doing the same things that He did 2,000 years ago!

AUDIENCE: Right! [APPLAUSE]

DONNA: And so I want to read to you a few verses, I like to read scripture if that’s okay with you. 1st Samuel, I’m reading from the New King James Version, chapter 1, and I’m reading about Hannah. You know the story. She was barren. She had cried out to God perpetually for a child. She was a holy woman. There wasn’t any sin in her life. There wasn’t under a curse but she felt like she was under a curse. She felt like God had forgotten her. And there was a certain turning point in her life and I believe God is getting us there. He’s really looking for miracle people! But when the one that was closest to her, the one that loved her the most said something to her that sounded like give up on that pipedream. The Bible says: Elkanah her husband said to her ‘Hannah, why do you weep? Why do you not eat? And why is your heart grieved? Am I not better to you than ten sons’? So he was just saying can’t you let this just go? He was tired of her depression. He was so over it but I love what the Word of God says in the next verse! So Hannah arose. [Laughing]. Hannah arose after they had finished eating and drinking in Shiloh. Now Eli the priest was sitting on the seat by the doorpost of the tabernacle of the Lord. And she was in bitterness of soul and prayed to the Lord and wept in anguish. Then she made a vow and said ‘O Lord of hosts, if You will indeed look on the affliction of your maidservant and remember me and not forget Your maidservant, but will give You maidservant a male child, then I will give him to the Lord all the days of his life and no razor shall come upon his head.’ And it happened, as she continued praying before the Lord, that Eli, the High Priest, watched her mouth. Now Hannah spoke in her heart, only her lips moved, but her voice was not heard. Therefore Eli thought she was drunk. So Eli said to her ‘How long will you be drunk? Put your wine away from you!’ But Hannah answered and said ‘No, my lord, I am a woman of sorrowful spirit. I have drunk neither wine nor intoxicating drink but have poured out my soul before the Lord. Do not consider your maidservant a wicked woman, for out of the abundance of my complaint and grief I have spoken until now.’ Then Eli answered and said ‘Go in peace and the God of Israel grant your petition which you have asked of Him. And she said ‘Let your maidservant find favor in your sight. So the woman went her way and ate and her face was no longer sad. Then she rose early in the morning and worshipped before the Lord and returned and came to their house at Ramah. And Elkanah knew Hannah his wife and the Lord remembered her. So it came to pass in the process of time that Hannah conceived and bore a son. There are so many beautiful keys that really are, they’re signals to us that we have let go of pressing through to our miracle too many times.

AUDIENCE: Mm.

DONNA: You know in our culture, and when I say that our religious culture, we have come to look at the five-fold ministry as kind of like right under God. You know like many gods? And so we have become no different than some denominations where a priest would have to go to God for you. We really have become very similar to that because if I need a miracle, if I need an answer to prayer I got to go to an Apostle or a Prophet or a Healer.

AUDIENCE: Amen.
