When You Are Panicked and Don’t What To Do

img_1613

Even though I’m walking through The valley of the shadow I will hold tight to the hand of Him Whose love will comfort me And when all hope is gone And I’ve been wounded in the battle He is all the strength that I will Ever need And He will carry me . From the 23rd Psalm

Even when you have a personal relationship with God, and even though others look to you for help and see you as strong, there will be times in life when you are in situations that panic and scare you. During those times there is only you and God. During those times you see Him as a tangible helper. He creates miracles and you know, that you know, HE IS REAL. He’s not a psychological crutch, or only in your imagination, He’s real.

I have been ill with the worst “bug” I have ever experienced. I have heard other people tell me they have had this too, and it’s treacherous. Last night was the worst yet. I started getting short of breath, dizzy and light headed. I prayed, it got worse. I began to see it as an attack so I started telling the evil one to leave and that my whole being belonged to God and he needed to hit the road. Somewhere panic set in. I begin to believe I needed to go to the hospital. So, I began to worry about Chuck, my husband. His vision is about 25%. It was now late at night. I thought of a couple of people I could call for help but I didn’t feel close enough to them to call that late. All this time it’s getting worse. Now I have completely taken my eyes off Jesus and I’m sinking fast. One of my prior occupations is a certified medical assistant. I knew my symptoms were serious.

I went and told Chuck how sick I was and that I needed to call an ambulance as I knew I wasn’t able to drive. Because of him not being able to pass the vision test they took his drivers license from him 3 years ago. Chuck could not drive me.

So I decided to call 911, but then I thought, “How will I get home?” There are no buses here, no cabs. All this time my breathing was becoming more labored. I called 911and told the guy that answered what was going on and asked if they could help me get home, eventually. He said he didn’t think so, but he wasn’t sure. So now, I felt stuck. I thanked him and said, “Never mind.”

So now, I tell God, “This is it, there is nothing to do, if I die, I die.”

Now, I am a prayer warrior. I pray over people all the time. I pray for people in other countries and they get miracles. My husband has come so far with the Lord but he is not much of a prayer partner. We pray together twice a day, but he doesn’t feel as comfortable praying as I do.

I could see he was worried. He could hear me trying to breathe and he knew I was in bad shape. So all of a sudden he comes over, sits down next to me, takes my hand and miraculously not only prays for me, but tells Satan that he knows he is attacking me and that he needs to leave his wife alone!

Guess what? Satan did just that! Within a few minutes I could breathe again, I was no longer wheezing and all my panic ended! God began to fill the room with a wonderful feeling of peace and we laid down and went to sleep.

Don’t give up on your spouse, or in Jesus working miracles with them, EVER. When you are believers, and submitted to God, Jesus doesn’t give up on your marriage. We give up on marriage a lot sooner then God does. Marriage is ordained by God, and in marriage we enter into a covenant with God. God never breaks that covenant, but many times we do. I know that’s not always the case. Sometimes we get ourselves into bad situations and God releases us from a marriage covenant, but that’s a study for another day.

I was tested to the max last night. I felt like I was in hand to hand combat with the devil. You know what? I took my eyes off Jesus, I got into the flesh. So I didn’t really lose because the next time that happens, I will have the faith to walk out on the water to meet Jesus. I will not give up until I get it right. I pray to keep my eyes on the Lord no matter how scary it gets.

Like all of these situations, what Satan meant to hurt me, turned around for my good. My husband let his pride, his fear of not saying it perfectly, go and God honored that prayer and stopped Satan’s plan to destroy me.

Trust Him, keep you eyes on Him, no matter how bad your situation looks. He will come to you in your desperation and He will help you. You just need to give Him a chance!

God Has Heard Your Prayers and Seen Your Tears

img_1590

Because you got a double dose of trouble and more than your share of contempt, Your inheritance in the land will be doubled and your joy go on forever. Isaiah 61:7

Today the Lord led me to Isaiah 61:7. As you read through that scripture take it into your spirit and understand it as a specific WORD from the Lord for you today.

So many of us live in shame and dishonor regarding things that happened before we surrendered all to Christ.

Now we are surrendered to God and trying to live each day for Him and yet we still live with a residue of pain and dishonor. Perhaps our finances, family relationships, or reputations suffered because of not being right with God at onetime in our lives. We know that God has forgiven us and yet the shame of these things follows us each day. If we are not careful we can dwell in the depression of looking back with regret. We can believe, in error, that we will forever be stuck with the results of disobedience.

Then we may have friends and family who don’t show us the same forgiveness that God does. The Word says in Psalm 103:12 the following;

“As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.”

He forgives and forgets. You will not be punished your entire life time because of confessed sin that you repent from.

Now today I am coming, on behalf of the Lord, to tell you what He wants you to know. He has seen your tears, heard your prayers and you are entering a time of renewed honor and increased prosperity. If you go to verse 8 you will see that the Lord is not happy with the unjust treatment you are receiving. He is about to reward you for your suffering. Not just reward you but reward you with twice as much.

I believe those who have endured a period of grief over unjust situations are entering a time of recompense from the Lord. We are standing on the threshold of having our lives turned around for the better. When others see it they will know, without a doubt, you are a much loved and highly favored child of God.

Release the pain of the consequences of your past and enter into a period of renewed respect and promotion. God is releasing these things to you. Use them for building up others and blessing them, too, in the name of God. Let people know how good God is to you!

Definition of Recompense: make amends to (someone) for loss or harm suffered; compensate.
“offenders should recompense their victims”

God is Restoring What Was Stolen From You

img_1580

 

And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you. Joel 2:25

I believe this is a restoration year. God is restoring and is giving people back, 10 fold, those things the devil took from us. Get ready to reap every good thing you have sown into the kingdom!

Some of you, like me, have had Satan hit you in some of the hardest ways you can imagine. Your children may have been taken from you, your dreams have been stolen from you and your health may be in shambles. You have lost homes, marriages, relationships and jobs. I believe this year those things will not only be restored but replaced with better then you can even imagine!

I am seeing it happen, right now, to many people I know. Get ready!

Look for things to happen in ways that you never expected them to happen! Be open to God doing a new thing in your life!

 

In His Never-Ending Love,

So You Are Alone For Valentines Day..

img_1570I was remembering this morning that Valentines Day for single people can be an uncomfortable time. You look around and it seems like everyone has someone but you. It can be depressing but it doesn’t have to be.

First of all it’s only one day. Anyone can get through 24 hrs. Secondly if you are alone believe that God has your special person in preparation for you,and only you,and when the time is right you will meet. To attract your person become the person YOU would want your someone to be.

Don’t become unequally yoked. Don’t be so eager for that person that you settle for someone who doesn’t have the same beliefs that you have in God. A lot of us had bad relationships, in the past, because we saw someone “we just had to have” and overlooked the fact that our Spirituality was nowhere near theirs. We think we can change them but that doesn’t happen and the constant struggle between light and darkness is draining.

I take that one step further with those who come to me for relationship counseling. I say make sure that their level of belief matches yours. For instance if you have a close intimate relationship with God then dating a brand new believer can be frustrating. Make a list of what you want in a person. Put 5 things on the list that you refuse to compromise about. Don’t allow yourself to become so lonely that you settle.

Sometimes that gorgeous person is a trap. Be realistic, if you were Satan would you send an ugly person to trap a believer?

Love really is eternal. Don’t be stuck for eternity with someone that makes your life on earth a living hell.

Be patient for one more Valentines Day. Your perfect gift from God is being prepared for you! Now repeat after me. ITS ONLY ONE DAY!

Quit Comparing Yourself To Others

img_1561

” Charm is deceitful and beauty is fleeting, but a woman who fears the LORD will be praised.” Proverbs 31:30

 
I used to constantly make myself miserable by comparing myself to others. We have to learn to celebrate who we are because we each have something wonderful about our unique being.

When I was young and living in California there was a woman named Marion, in our apartments, who every man drooled over and every woman hated. She had a perfect body, a gorgeous face and long, thick flowing hair.

I would compare myself to her and I always came up short. My body was far from perfect, my face was average and my hair was fine and thin.

But over the time we lived there God began to speak to me that instead of fretting over what I wasn’t I needed to concentrate on what I was. I have always had an outgoing, fun personality and people enjoy being around me. So I made myself the best “me” I could be and counted on my people skills to make sure I had plenty of friends.

Over the many, many, years now I have learned that a partner who frets more over your looks then theirs and constantly reminds you of your beauty faults is actually a very insecure person. They are the kind of person who needs their ego constantly stroked and having that perfect person by their side constantly gives their ego a boost. They want everyone in the room, when they walk in with you, to be jealous. It isn’t about you, it’s about them. That’s not love, that’s insecurity.

I am not telling you to let yourself go. I am telling you that true love accepts you as you are.

You are a one of a kind. God doesn’t make junk. He made you for a reason. Quit comparing yourself to others. Have you ever noticed that, nine times out of ten, truly beautiful people are not nice people?

Find what the one thing is that makes you special and work on perfecting it. That’s God’s gift to the world operating through you.

In God’s Unconditional Love,
Cathie
