Bringing God on The Scene Of Your Problems

praise_the_lord

Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; He’s the one who will keep you on track. Proverbs 5-6 The Message

There is a way to rise above the disappointments, the setbacks and the horrible things we see coming on the earth today. It’s easy and yet it took me so long to finally understand the concept. I look back on the years I wasted doing things my own way and trying to figure everything out and, even though I know God’s time table is perfect, I can’t help but wish I had not been such a stubborn child of God.

We hold on to our way of doing things. Often it is because we have spent so long doing things our way, even if it is the wrong way, that nothing else feels “natural” to us. For instance if we always seem to be the kind of person who see’s the glass of life half empty, it won’t seem natural to us when we first try doing the opposite and seeing the glass half full.

If you are in the midst of change in your life, I want to encourage you today to hang tough. Continue on doing the right things until they become second nature to you. Because doing the right things brings peace, not anxiety, not confusion. If ever there was a time when we need peace in the world that time is NOW.

There will come a time when you will feel broken on your journey with God. Don’t look around you and wonder what is going on, instead lift your hands to heaven and praise His name because after this time of training has passed you will enter a glorious arena of peace in the midst of storms.

Will things around you always be pleasant after this severe time of testing and training? No, but it won’t matter because you will have learned the secret to persevering in the midst of it all.

Part of it, a large part of it, is our attitude. The Word teaches us the following; “God inhabits the praises of His people.” Psalm 22:3. That’s a very important lesson to learn on our path. Usually when we first start to experience some hard circumstantial training we start to moan, groan and complain. We don’t understand it. We are God’s children and so we should be taken care of, right? We have done what we thought He wanted us to do. We have possibly sacrificed when others haven’t. So why are we in this pit of despair?

The answer is simple; we are going to stay there as long as we cannot learn to praise God in the middle of our circumstances. We feel that God is far from us, and we can’t understand it.

I ask you to consider the following for a time; if God inhabits the praises of His people and yet we are feeling far from Him, it’s probably our fault. We are probably grumbling and complaining and telling our hard luck stories to everyone who will listen. God is there, He never leaves us, but He cannot work with us until we learn to praise Him in good times and in bad. If we will start to praise Him in the midst of things falling apart in our lives, it’s amazing how much quicker He appears on the scene and sets about to work miracles in hard situations.

We often think, “Well, I don’t feel happy and I refuse to be phony.” I spent time in that way of thinking too. Evidentially, through trial and error, I realized God had a way He wanted me to react and the longer I insisted on doing it my way, the longer I would spend in a rut of circumstances.

Praise is not a feeling; it’s an act of our will. Unconditional love is not a feeling; it’s an act of our will.

When we praise God, God comes on the scene. When we grumble He stays quiet until we surrender our human feelings to His Supernatural will.

I recently had a situation in which my only source of much needed extra income was cut off. This is income that I needed to keep from living on my credit cards at the end of the month prior to payday. Years ago this would have really upset me. I would have cried, grumbled and shook my fist at God. Not that it ever did a bit of good, you understand.

This time I decided that even though it made no sense to me, I would trust that God was in it and had something much better for me. For two months I have gone without the income from that source. Yet I decided to praise God anyway.

Monday morning I looked at my email and I had an email from someone whose name I didn’t recognize. This man asked me if I was still interested in selling my designer boutique jewelry from their venue. Without going into much, because it’s not sealed in stone yet, this venue has been closed to new jewelry businesses like mine for a while now. It takes a miracle to get in, but once in your sales can go up by 50% overnight. I immediately knew that this was a gift from God. A much needed financial miracle. I began to praise Him even more.

God is comfortable in the midst of our praises. He is NOT comfortable with whining and grumbling and sometimes I think He delays our blessings until we get that through our heads and learn to be content where ever we are in our walk with God.

In Psalm 20:6-8, in the Message Bible, we read:

That clinches it—help’s coming,
an answer’s on the way,
everything’s going to work out.

7-8 See those people polishing their chariots,
and those others grooming their horses?
But we’re making garlands for God our God.
The chariots will rust,
those horses pull up lame—
and we’ll be on our feet, standing tall.

People will do you wrong, every now and then, there is never a doubt about it. If you dwell on that, and continue to feel sorry for yourself you will go from bad to worse. The people, who hosted my online store and then virtually overnight decided not to, unless I paid them $40.00 more a month for “rent” did the wrong thing. God knew it was not fair, and God knows your situation is not fair. God takes care of those types of people, rest assured. But when we give these unfair, unhappy situations to Him, He turns the situation around to benefit us.

Let whoever hurt you, used you, abused you or fired you, GO. God will take care of those situations. Just start praising Him in the midst of it, because not only will you make it, you will make it and be blessed, no matter how it looks in the natural. Praise His Holy Name for now and ever more!

God And Spiders

Dontgiveup

“We will shout for joy when you are victorious and will lift up our
banners in the name of our God. May the LORD grant all your requests.
Now I know that the LORD saves his anointed; he answers him from his
holy heaven with the saving power of his right hand. Some trust in
chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our
God.” (Psalm 20:5-7)

If you are like me you have some days when you wonder, “Where is God and how much more does He honestly think I can take?”

Yesterday was one of those days for me. Sometimes people think I float around in a supernatural bubble of happiness and nothing bad happens to the encouragement preacher.

Don’t ever believe that. Like you I too have unbearable days, but God has been using those days to help me learn and then to turn around and teach others what I have learned.

I had one of those days yesterday. I am my poor husbands caretaker. We have no family around us; we have no strong church family here due to the fact this area is steeped in New Age beliefs. So God has had us, like Moses, in the desert.

The desert was where Moses found himself literally ripped from his comfort zone and often questioning the Lord regarding the situation.

Normally God holds me up and gives me supernatural strength to run my husbands errands, as he no longer see’s well enough to drive. He needs medication, and he has doctor’s appointments and other needs including the fact he cannot shower himself without help. Yesterday, my Lupus decided to come out of remission temporarily. I felt myself getting ill, and having no energy. Chuck had waited until the last minute to let me know he was out of important medication. I had to go to the store and frankly I had no idea where the strength to do so would come from.

I sat down to put on my shoes and a huge brown spider crawled out from under one of them. I have seen all kinds of spiders in the last few days and even two geckos in the house. It is getting cold and they are looking for a warm place too. Everyday I kill several of them. I have thought about asking my landlord to spray the house but trust me when I tell you that it is better to not ask the man for anything. He has truly been the landlord from the hot place.

Now usually, if we look back on it, it’s some little thing, like a spider on our shoe, that is the straw the breaks the camels back, so to speak.

I picked up the shoe, killed the spider and said to God, “How much more do you expect of me, God? How much more!!” I started to recite every single thing that was wrong in my life. Then I stopped, got myself together and went to get the medication. Truthfully, the drive into town cleared my head and calmed my soul.

While driving into town I thought about a story I had recited to me as a young Christian. I looked it up and sure enough I found it online. It comforted me in so many ways! It centered me again, and made me realize that even what we see as a bad situation has God in the middle of it. God uses what looks like impossible situations to minister His loving kindness to us too. I am going to share the story with you today.

If you are in, “one of those places,” I pray that this story ministers to you too!

                  The Soldiers Spider Web

 

Robert the Bruce, a young soldier, found himself in a terrible battle
during the Scottish Reformation around 1300. The enemy was soundly
defeating this young man’s army. He and his comrades found themselves
hastily retreating from the battlefield in defeat, running away in
fear of their very lives. The enemy gave chase. This young man ran
hard and fast, full of fear and desperation, and soon found himself
cut off from his comrades in arms.

He eventually came upon a rocky ledge containing a cave. Knowing the
enemy was close behind, and that he was exhausted from the chase, he
chose to hide there. After he crawled in, he fell to his face in the
darkness, desperately crying to God to save him and protect him from
his enemies.

When he looked up from his despairing plea for help, he saw a spider
beginning to weave its web at the entrance to the cave. As he watched
the delicate threads being slowly drawn across the mouth of the cave,
the young soldier pondered its irony. He thought, “I asked God for
protection and deliverance, and he sent me a spider instead. How can
a spider save me?

His heart was hardened, knowing the enemy would soon discover his
hiding place and kill him. And soon he did hear the sound of his
enemies, who were now scouring the area looking for those in hiding.
One soldier with a gun slowly walked up to the cave’s entrance. As
the young man crouched in the darkness, hoping to surprise the enemy
in a last-minute desperate attempt to save his own life, he felt his
heart pounding wildly out of control.

As the enemy cautiously moved forward to enter the cave, he came upon
the spider’s web, which by now was completely strung across the
opening. He backed away and called out to a comrade, “There can’t be
anyone in here. They would have had to break this spider’s web to
enter the cave. Let’s move on.”

Years later, a young man wrote about that ordeal: “Where God is, a
spider’s web is as a stone wall. Where God is not, a stone wall is as
a spider’s web.”

God Keeps His Promises And He Never Lies

Godsperfecttiming

God is not a man, so he does not lie. He is not human, so he does not change his mind. Has he ever spoken and failed to act? Has he ever promised and not carried it through?

Numbers 23:19

When God speaks a word to us regarding something He about to do, or a promise He gives us, we often times mistakenly think that God means He will do it immediately. In the beginning of my walk with the Lord I used to think the same thing and as I have gone forward with The Father I have learned to wait on Him.

First of all God does not lie. As the scripture above says and He also doesn’t change His mind. So what He promises to do, He does. I suggest you write down the scripture at the top of this blog post or print it out. That way when the devil comes to you and tells you that you misunderstood God, or that you didn’t even hear God, you can renew your mind with a Word that says the opposite.

When we plant seeds they do not come up immediately and no matter how much we fuss and watch over them they will only sprout when the times is right.

I have had some promises God gave me materialize before me immediately and others took years and years. God’s timing is perfect and it’s His will that His children do not suffer or do without those things they need.

We often try to do things our way. One good example is when we need financial help. We pray, but in the natural we start to think of ways God could supply our needs. Then one thing leads to another and we might think God needs our help. We then make sure all our friends and family members know of our need so that we can then prick their consciences to help us. I did that in the beginning of my walk with the Lord, and one day the Lord spoke to my heart and said the following, “You don’t give me a chance to help so that you can experience a REAL miracle because you are too busy trying to manipulate things.” I pondered that for a while and realized that really trusting in God meant to keep my mouth shut and then God could work real miracles in my situation. That is exactly what happened. I had a habit of telling my problems to people and God began to tell me to shut my mouth as I was giving a bad Christian witness to people.

It was hard at first but I begin to depend completely on the Lord. God would then do miracles that I am still in awe about. You see our help comes from God and not man!

Psalm 121:2 states the following, “My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.”

Yesterday I was in a chat room of a man that I follow who is a Messianic biblical Code Searcher. The man had seen some things in the codes that he had shared with others. On first glance yesterday it appeared that something he had seen in the codes for yesterday didn’t come to pass. Within an hour it became abundantly clear to those of us in that room that he had not missed the Lord but things were being hidden regarding the comet that came into close distance of Mars yesterday. It was another sign of the times that God has hidden in the biblical codes. At one point a man started calling the man of God names, and acting anything but Christian. Sometimes we get upset, as Children of God, when that happens but if we sign up as a soldier we must know that we are going to get friendly fire. As a matter of fact you often times get more flack from the family of God then unbelievers. But I knew, that I knew, that the man had heard from God, and sure enough within an hour or so others knew that too!

When God tells us something is going to happen, IT WILL HAPPEN. I have a dear friend in Colorado who sells homes for a living. She went through a dry spell and was quite worried about what was going on. God had promised her that her finances would be improving. She was having trouble with selling a home and she finagled around until she talked someone into buying it. The sell turned out to be a mess in the making and in the end it didn’t go to escrow and she was back to square one. I told her that it was time for her to sit back, relax and let God steer her boat. As soon as she learned to let God be in control and quit worrying she not only sold that house but two others soon after.

Often times, when we need a miracle, things get worse before they get better. If you mix oil and water violently it looks like things will never settle down, but in the end the oil goes where it needs to be and everything rights its self.

If God is not moving in your situation it is either that the time is not right or that there is a lesson He needs for you to learn about waiting and depending upon Him. God will wait until things with you and the other person(s) involved are exactly where He wants them to be to benefit you the most.

Worry is not of God. Worry is a tool of the devil. I feel today that some of you reading this are in a state of worry and anxiety. STOP it by getting into prayer and praise and then go do something just for you, even if it’s only a nice bubble bath. Take your mind off of your troubles and place your trust in a God that never lies and sets about to do just what He said He would do!

Your Season Is About To Change

SEASONS

17 “The Lord your God is in the midst of you, a Mighty One, a Savior [Who saves]! He will rejoice over you with joy; He will rest [in silent satisfaction] and in His love He will be silent and make no mention [of past sins, or even recall them]; He will exult over you with singing.” Zephaniah 3:17

When we are in the midst of troubles and sorrows we get so down that it often feels to us that there will not be any good times again. We let that negativity that Satan brings to us seep deep down inside at times and we think, “Nothing good is ever going to happen to me again! My life is over!”

Oh, beloved of the Lord, I can prove to you that no matter how bad things look for you at this moment, these times will not last forever. How do I know that? There is a season for everything. We only have to look at the way God set up the universe to know how He feels about seasons. Had God thought that everything should always stay the same He would not have created the four seasons of our years.

So we can be assured that life is like a wheel. Sometimes we are on top of the wheel of life and sometimes we are hitting the pavement. But things change and because of that we must never give up. NEVER!

Years ago I had gone up to the altar at the church I was attending at the time. It was beautiful there after services when people who needed prayer would go forth to the front and pour out their hearts to the Lord. I was in a very hard season of my life. I was seeking the Lord but not speaking out loud when a wonderful elder at the church put his hand on my shoulder and began to prophecy over me the following, “The things you have gone through have not been in vain. God has used this for a training ground for you and someday you will be ministering to others who are going through the same thing and because of what you have gone through you will be able to minister with compassion that you would not have had, if you had not been in this particular valley!”

Those words held me up and gave my suffering a purpose. Because of what I went through, then, I really do have much more compassion for those who experience hard times in their marriages.

It’s often those times when we feel we can’t go on another minute that God, in the blink of an eye, gives us relief from our sorrows and moves our lives in a different direction.

God, I believe, deals with us like a really good parent. There are times when we suffer but God really hates to see any one of His children in pain. He sets about as quickly as He can to right our lives, but He loves us too much to let us get off too easily. He wants us to remember how our actions, sometimes, get us into deep trouble. Without experiencing the valleys we never know how wonderful it feels on the mountaintops!

Recently I was looking at one of the Aspen trees in the backyard. One leaf would fall, and then three leaves fell and God spoke to my heart, “In a few weeks that tree will be completely bare, but looking at it now it’s hard to see that, isn’t it? Then God began to speak to me that it’s the same way with our prayers, we pray one day, and then the next and we cannot see that the problems we pray about will soon be gone. In fact we cannot see anything and we often think that because we can’t see an end that God is not listening and isn’t going to answer us. However, just as that tree will soon be bare of leaves, one day the problems will be gone and we won’t remember how long it took for God to answer!

Things are happening in the heavenlies even when we aren’t aware of them. God’s plan is not to leave us where we are but His plan is to make sure that we don’t end up in this kind of trouble and sorrow again. Sometimes that takes awhile longer then we want it too.

For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. Isa. 55:9

 

These past few days I have felt the Lord speaking to me that graduation from some of these things His children have suffered is upon us. He is ready to trust us to go forward into His plan for us, His very best plan for us! I have a happy feeling of expectation of what the Lord is getting ready to do for His children. Many have been tried and tested and are now ready to come out of the fire like sparkling gold!

 

Hold on, beloved of the Lord. Your seasons are getting ready to change!

 

In His Never-Failing Love,

No Retreat and No Surrender

GodFights

You therefore must endure hardship, as a good soldier of Christ Jesus. 2 Timothy 2:3

I believe that in order to endure some of the hardships of this present time we must have the mind of soldiers. You know when you sign up for the military that you may get fired on and that fire will not be friendly fire. Why is that? It’s because Satan, our adversary, roams the earth seeing whom he may devour next. Oh, he can tease, taunt and tempt but the truth is that we abide under the wings of the Almighty God and try as he may God keeps His children safely close to Him and Satan’s wish to destroy us is thwarted.

How do we know this? In Psalm 91 we read the following in verse 1, “He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand].”

The problem, as I see it, is that very few are really preaching repentance from the pulpit. We have these mega preachers that are still preaching about giving, and most of them are taking what we give and buying new golf clubs and fancy vacations with it.  It’s so dishonest, in my humble opinion, to make desperate people think if they give to a certain ministry God will make them rich. I turn off of any minister or ministry that preys upon desperate people and says something like; “God spoke to my heart that everyone who gives X amount of dollars in the next five minutes..yada, yada, yada. This teaching, more than any other, has turned people away from God. When they didn’t get rich, they blamed God! Woe, to those shepherds!

God will bless us because we are His children and He knows our hearts!! He has promised to supply ALL of our NEEDS!

Do I believe in giving? Yes, and I do so, but no longer do I give for what I will get in return. God knows our motives for giving. Who do we think we are fooling? It does take money to run churches, and ministries. Just don’t give simply to win the God lottery. Give with a heart to see the Word go out to the hurting, and so your church can pay their bills.

I have noticed, with sorrow, how so many of these people who get rich quickly in the church, by telling people they also will be rich by giving to them, end up in moral failure of one kind or the other. They don’t know how to handle the money they are given just like these professional ball players get in trouble because they, too, don’t know how to handle money. Some preachers become drunk with power and money and if their motive, in following God , was simply to get rich, once they are rich the focus comes off of God.

I fell into that teaching too, and I had to have God reduce me to nothing and look up to Him to supply my needs one day at a time. God wants to know if we will still love Him, and still follow and serve Him, even if we have nothing.

The strange thing about giving is that once we get over thinking of God as our personal ATM machine, He still provides for us. It’s our hearts and motives He cares about, and He will do what needs to be done to get us to the point of surrendering it ALL to Him.

God is going to protect and supply the needs of those who turn to Him in complete surrender. Those who may have really blown it in the past, but that now realize that life without God in charge is HELL. There is no other way to say it, forgive me for my bluntness but you know I am right. You know it!

Yesterday as I was in prayer, praise and worship I heard the Lord say, “My land is polluted.” I thought, “What, God, what are you trying to tell me, besides the obvious?” I went to my husband, an Old Testament scholar, and told him what God was speaking to me and we started to pray and ask God for clarification. As we studied we understood that to pollute, means to defile in Hebrew. We are living in a world we hardly know anymore. Innocent blood has been shed, morals are at a point of depravity, and people lie and cheat just because they often get away with it. We see that with our governments, and the elected officials. God has really had it with the defiling of this land, and I believe He is warning us that He intends to do something about it.

The main thing I want to stress today, Beloved of the Lord, is that we are not to FEAR. This world we are living in at times looks very scary. If we look at the beheadings, and the murders, and the plagues, we can get into fear.

When the disciples had a great storm come up at sea they begin to get into fear. Jesus was sleeping when they woke Him up and He then calmed the sea. “He replied, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?” Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm.” Matthew 8:26

He speaks those same words to us today! He is in our “boat” of difficulties and no storm is too big for Him to calm. No storm of debt, or personal problems, or illness, or lack of food and money, is too big for Him to calm. When we call out to Him, He hears and He comes to our sides. Stand on that faith. Stand up and tell the Devil that you will not retreat and will not surrender!

You may see some things in this next year that appear frightening. Never fear. If you have repented of your past, and laid your life on the spiritual altar, you and your loved ones will be safe. If you have not repented, I urge you today to do so. The land is polluted and God has reached His limit. Be on His side, not on the losing side. If you need someone to pray with email me.

I have a list of names from folks who email me and I pray over it each day. Do not have too much pride to write for prayer. I am getting enough mail that I have opened another email address as of today. You can email me @ WisdomOfTheCooingDove1@aol.com

I am going to start another Facebook page for this blog, called Wisdom Of The Cooing Dove. I am not really technically savvy so bear with me. I am going to cancel the other one.

Get up, wash yourself off and tell the devil to get out of your place! God is on your side and “No weapon Formed Against You Shall Prosper!”

In His Never-Failing Love,

The Three Reasons We Suffer

Beholdhecomes

Don’t be misled–you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always harvest what you plant. Galatians 6:7

God has been impressing upon my heart to talk a little about suffering and why we go through some of the hard times we go through.

There are three major reasons a Christian goes through hard times.

The first one is if we are saved, born again and blood bought, and we are participating in sin that we know is not in accordance with our new lives in Christ.

The second one happens when we are saved, living for the Lord, and yet reaping some of the bad seeds we sowed prior to being saved and set apart for the Lord.

The third reason is that we are such a threat to Satan that he sows discard into our lives to try and discourage our walks with the Lord and often times tear down the ministry we have in sowing into other’s lives. This is the place where I find so many of our struggles are coming from at this time.

The first one is pretty self-evident. When we turned our lives over to God there were certain things that we needed to give up. These things have no place in the lives of Christians. I say this not in a judgmental spirit, but in a spirit of truth. If we know we are in sin, and our lives are in chaos, we can simply determine today to confess that sin, turn from it completely and walk on assured of God’s forgiveness. God can help us overcome sinful behaviors that we seem powerless to overcome by ourselves.

The second one is not always easy to understand. We may be living for the Lord but some of the things we did prior to being saved are now coming home to cause us misery. Beloved, one of the biblical truths is that we reap what we sow. We will reap the good seeds and the bad seeds we have sown, make no mistake.

Now some of these things include spending money we didn’t have that now causes us to have terrible financial problems, ways we disrespected and hurt our family members who have decided not to forgive and give second chances, and of course some folks have legal problems because of breaking the law while living for themselves instead of God.

These things are not easy to go through, but they are apart of getting our lives back together. When we are truly sorry we can call on God and He will come forth and help us with all the repercussions for our past sins. He will help smooth the way of any son or daughter of His that finds themselves suffering because of their past lives of living unto themselves and not unto Him. If you are going through something now that is directly related to things in your past, accept that you are aware that this is your doing, and determine not to ever indulge in that behavior again. Go forward and God will be with you.

The third reason is something that I find so many of us going through at this moment. Some of the greatest warriors and teachers of Godly knowledge have been under severe physical attacks on their body, finances and relationships with others.

At the beginning of Rosh Hashanah my husband got a letter from the co-op gallery that he sells his art out of telling him that they could no longer show his art there unless he could work a week out of the month there. Since he returned from the hospital he has not been able to work there because of his health and he cannot stand on his feet. They had been letting my husband and several other folks in that position pay a little more instead of working that week. Now they completely cut that off and I had to go to the gallery and pick up his artwork. Being able to sell that artwork was an additional source of money that we needed. Then last Friday the place where I sell my jewelry online, for my little online business, changed their format and pretty much destroyed my shop and those of others in doing so. I am not sure at all how that will turn out but it may explain the fact that I have had no sells in almost a month.

Truly, neither Chuck nor I was surprised. We know, according to bible prophecy, what season we are in and we know that in these last days, last minutes actually, Satan is making a last ditch effort to battle with those of His people that are totally surrendered to God. We are not truly concerned as we know that God has His hand on our lives and no weapon formed against us will prosper.

“Dear friends, don’t be surprised at the fiery trials you are going through, as if something strange were happening to you.” 1 Peter 4:12

If, beloved, you are not listening to Jonathan Cahn’s teachings on this year and next, www.theharbinger-jonathancahn.com/ or Mark Biltz www.elshaddaiministries.us/ then you really need to take time to do so.

Those teaching are bringing what is going on currently, and how it affects the lives of Christians, into perfect focus. I highly recommended either going to those sites or searching their videos out on YouTube. Be prepared for things happening at a fever pitch for the rest of this year and next.

God has awoken me on two different occasions in the past month with warnings regarding the number 4 in biblical teachings. In my life when I see 4’s it means I will soon hear of deaths on the world scene. The first time was right before the first beheading we heard of. The second time was right before we heard of the man in the U.S with Ebola. I have said before that I believe God warns us of things like this, not because we can do a thing about them, but so that we will know when they do happen that GOD IS IN CONTROL of all circumstances.

If you remember, and if you were reading my blog, towards the end of last year or the first of the year, I reported that God gave me a Word of Knowledge regarding some things that might occur this year. One of them was that a mighty man of God would fall into sexual sin and again another man’s ministry would be brought down because of that. Today I read that the man who ministered through the ministry, “GOD TV” has confessed his sin and stepped down. I was then reminded of that Word Of Knowledge. I pray for this man and know that God can restore him. It’s good he stepped down to let God minister to him.

Basically, brothers and sisters in the Lord, we all need to cling as closely to our Heavenly Father as we can. We need to be prayed up and not let these little annoyances, and those not so little, catch us by surprise. We are in the last time battle for our souls, and the enemy wants to take as many ministries, and people, to hell with him as possible.

The best thing to do is get some Christian fellowship, and hook up with some mighty prayer warriors. If you feel alone please write me, and I will be glad to pray with you. Some of you have already done that, and I count it a blessing and a treasure in my heart, that you feel you can trust me! My email address is Belovedhandmdn1@aol.com.

God bless you, and stay strong. This all turns out for our good in the end! One day soon He will return and we will say; “Behold He Comes!” In the meantime He has told us to occupy and He will give us the ways and means to do so!

In His Unconditional Love,

Cathie
