I was introduced to the teachings of Graham Cooke when I joined the Prayer Ministry Team at my home church in 2009. By 2012, I had many DVD’s and CD’s that Graham had available.

I thought I kept hearing the Holy Spirit say, “Go deeper. There is more. There is more!” I did not understand what HE was telling me until January 2013 when I became a member of TWC. I learned there was a Kingdom language I didn’t know. There were Training Days. There was a group of leaders that were there to encourage, exhort, and comfort me in my journey to becoming the warrior God was saying I was.

Please allow me to share two of the transformations I have experienced from the TWC training process. First, I have learned warriors have to have the ability to practice stillness. We have to be able to hear the quite whispers of the Holy Spirit. I had a lot clamor within my heart. There was the clamor of my own negativity, condemnation from the past, lack of trust, and unbelief. The biggest problem was that I did not know who God really was. By practicing His presence and by exploring the Bible with the intentionally of partnering with the Holy Spirit through stillness, it is getting much easier for me to hear God’s whisper.

Graham teaches that God never asks us to do something without first giving us everything we need to see that thing accomplished.

The Bible says, “Be still and know that I am God,” {Psalm 46:10}. Our Father is not telling us to be stationary but, instead. to partner with Him and still our heart noises.

I am still hearing, “go deeper there is more.” The big difference is now I know, that I know, that I know, if I partner with the Holy Spirit I will be more than a conquer.

Secondly, I have learned rest is the warrior’s greatest weapon. Warriors fight from the victory through Jesus, not toward it. Warriors never fight on the enemy’s terms. We all have a secret place in us where we need to hide in Jesus’ peace and rest. Jesus tells us when to go out and to fight totally confident that victory is assured. It is written in the Bible,”For the Lord will be your confidence and will keep your foot from being caught,” Proverbs 3:26.

I am loving the training, resources, and leadership that TWC offers. I am learning how to walk in the kingdom with God, seeing what He sees, hearing what He hears, blessing how He blesses, and loving how He loves.  Thank you Jesus!
