What God Told Me About Suffering

img_1613

I have learned something in the past few years. What I have learned is that sometimes people expect you to be strong when the truth is that if some of the things that have happened to you happened to them, they would fall apart and curse God.

 

I know that’s true. In the past few years I have had to be the strong one when I should not have had to be the strong one.

 

Some of you are there; you are losing your job, for the third time. Your cancer is back and you are still weak from fighting it the last time. You are getting evicted and don’t have a clue as to where you will go. You child is ill or dying and yet everyone expects you to go on like nothing is wrong.

 

I have thought a lot about that lately and I feel impressed to tell you that you cannot depend on people to hold you up. You can, depend on God. We may not feel His presence but He is with us. He loves us and He is watching us and when the time is right our breakthrough will come and those who have given up on us will be SHOCKED.

 

I have been a caretaker when, if truth was known, I should have a caretaker. I have Lupus, a Spinal Cord injury, and I take care of my husband everyday who can do very little for himself.

 

Recently, I asked for help and with the exception of a couple of friends no one has helped. That’s fine because through this God is teaching me to be stronger then I ever have been.

 

I want YOU to know, in the midst of your troubles, pay no attention to those who cockily say to you, “You tell others to believe in God, how come you can’t to that yourself.”

 

Because for some of us it seems like it’s not one thing to be discouraged about, but it’s a lot of things. Even Job, was shaken when one thing after the other came against his life. Even a man with the faith of Job, questioned God and went to his friends for help. You find out who is your friend at these times too. Most people are takers. Then need YOU to do something for them. They need you to pray for them, but when it’s you with the problem, they find a way to shut you down.

 

I have been seeking God about these things. Like Job, I will never stop loving and worshipping God.

 

Yesterday God told me to start getting real with these blogs. He said, “There are millions out there like you, Cathie. Millions who think they cannot go on another day. He said, “I told you the last days would be like this. I told you that in the last days it would be hard to stand, but those who do will be with me in eternity.”

 

God said the following, “There are those of my children who are desperate for hope. They cannot get it from other Christians because a lot of my children believe that those who have troubles MUST HAVE DONE SOMETHING WRONG. Therefore so many end up committing suicide from a lack of help. I have put you in these dire situations so that you will understand exactly how they feel.”

 

God told me “Continue your blog and get real with people. I am angry with my children who live in comfort and luxury and yet refuse to help others. I am sick of them and I am going to turn these things around. I want you to let these hurting ones know, I am here for everyone, but the hurting are especially close to my heart. I was spit on, I was scourged, and I was called a liar. You think I don’t understand your pain?”

 

He continued, “I had a mission to do, I did it out of love. Yet the first time something happens to some of my children they blame me, or they say, “There is no God.” I told you that Satan is your enemy. Instead of thinking that those hurting one have sinned you should understand that so many of them are PERFECT in my eyes. Satan knows that and he is hell bent on discouraging them. ENDURE TO THE END! ENDURE TO THE END!”

 

Matthew 24:12-14Because of the multiplication of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold. 13But the one who perseveres to the end will be saved. 14And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the entire world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.

 

1 Corinthians 1: 8-9He will sustain you to the end, so that you will be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9God, who has called you into fellowship with His Son Jesus Christ our Lord, is faithful.

 

1 Peter 12 4:12-13 Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice insofar as you share Christ’s sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed. If you are insulted for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. But let none of you suffer as a murderer or a thief or an evildoer or as a meddler. Yet if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in that name. …

Beloved, we are never as close to God as when we suffer without just cause.

 

The night before last Jesus spoke to me, “These horrible tests are going to be the hardest. But when you share the dinner with the Bridegroom, it will all have been worth it. They did horrible things to me, so why do you find it so strange when the shoe is on your foot?”

 

The best thing we can do with these hardships is simply surrender to them, and let God be God. He has a plan, whatever it is we must accept it. We must tell Him the desires of our hearts and then leave those desires with Him.

 

He is getting ready to turn these things around. We have been severely tested in order to understand the hard testing’s of our brothers and sisters and help them through them. Please quit sitting in judgment of others! We have no idea what their lives have been like. We must pray for mercy for those who are devastated by the trials of life, and especially for those who find delight in their suffering.

What You Need To Know About the New Apostles

Godgiveshishardestbattles
14 Give a warm welcome to any brother who wants to join you, even though his faith is weak. Don’t criticize him for having different ideas from yours about what is right and wrong.[a] 2 For instance, don’t argue with him about whether or not to eat meat that has been offered to idols. You may believe there is no harm in this, but the faith of others is weaker; they think it is wrong and will go without any meat at all and eat vegetables rather than eat that kind of meat. 3 Those who think it is all right to eat such meat must not look down on those who won’t. And if you are one of those who won’t, don’t find fault with those who do. For God has accepted them to be his children. 4 They are God’s servants, not yours. They are responsible to him, not to you. Let him tell them whether they are right or wrong. And God is able to make them do as they should.
Romans 14 1-4
Revival is in the air. In the past two weeks I have seen and heard “apostles” starting to speak boldly and stepping out to minister to and teach others what they have learned.

A lot of long time ministers, apostles, prophets, etc. are literally freaking out. They don’t know what to make of it and a lot of them are warning against following or listening to these people.

I have been praying about it and God is giving me a bit of knowledge as to how to understand it. I want to share a bit about what I am hearing from God.

First of all this is how it should be. Anybody who has been saved for over 5 years or more should not be CONSTANTLY seeking someone to “feed” and minister to them. A new Christian, like a new baby, is on formula. By the time they are 5 years old they should be eating meat.

Yes, a lot of them have things they need to work out. If they are now serious with God, God will give them the desire to do that.

I once heard a story from an older person who spent years being a missionary. He was so pleased in a young man he met. The man was in love with Jesus. He soon begin to go out with the ministry team to pray for people and instantly the people were healed.

Since they had an important ministry trip coming up the older man told his team to go get the man to come with them. They told the man, “Unfortunately, he has started drinking again.” The older man was wise enough to know the drunk man had the anointing of God, but his flesh was weak.

The older man went into town, found the younger man drunk in a bar. He dragged him out and took him to a store, bought him decent clothes and then took him to a barber shop to have him cleaned up. Then, he took the man on the mission trip. The others on the team couldn’t understand what the older minister was doing. Frankly, several of them were jealous of the treatment the weak Christian got from the minister.

As it turned out the man was greatly used by the Lord on the mission trip and his life was so touched he was never found drunk in a bar again. His anointing was so strong he would lay hands on someone and they would fall, full of the spirit, and wake totally and completely whole in mind, body and spirit.

The definition of an “apostle” is someone who carries the mission of Christ to his or her world. It appears God is raising up a lot of new ones. That’s good because there is a hurting world that needs hope today, more then ever.

Yes, a lot of earthly wisdom comes with age. Wisdom is learned by making a lot of mistakes. Elders must be respected and not cast aside. Abraham live a long life and God used in through the entirety of it. Knowledge however can be learned through studying the word and apply it in our life. Give them a chance. The knowledge is there, the deep wisdom will come.

The older teachers, ministers and apostles should be mentors to the new ones. The new ones need to be respectful of the elders and not arrogantly casting them aside as being old and no longer relevant.

Align Your Mind With The Mind Of God

Thoughts

Psalm 34:17-18 the righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles. The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

 

Our moods can change really quickly. One minute everything is great and the next minute we our in a bad mood and obsessing over one problem or the other.

 

I recently had an incident in my life that I could not seem to break free of obsessing over. To me it is an emotionally painful situation and it never seems to get better no matter how much I pray. Believe me I have prayed until I am blue in the face and the situation doesn’t get better. I was praying in the spirit this week when God began to download to my mind a teaching for others and myself about the danger of obsessing over problems and how doing that makes things worse.

 

God began to show me what happens in the spirit world when we focus on one problem obsessively. Without knowing it the problem gets bigger and we actually attract more problems by constantly praying in a negative way about our problems. We have all been there. We start to tell the Lord about what is going on, from our perspective, and we begin to tell him how awful the situation is and that we “just do not know what we are going to do about it.” We go on from there with one negative confession after the other. In the Kingdom of God, one of the Kingdom principals is, “What we say is what we get.”

 

God begin to speak to my heart and said the following, “If this situation was completely rectified and everything concerning it was perfect, how would you feel?” I thought about how I would feel without the problem. I determined I would feel happy, peaceful and secure. God then said, “I want you to imagine yourself feeling like that every time you think about it and then pray to me with gratitude that you feel happy, peaceful and secure. Do not mention the problem, I already know your problems. Just thank Me as if everything was exactly as you want it to be. That puts your mind and my mind as ONE. I want only GOOD things for you always, you already have those things it’s simply the enemy of your soul who wants you fretting over things that you, already, have every right, as MY daughter, to have. Every time you start to obsess over things just STOP and go to that peaceful place in your mind where you feel happy, peaceful and secure. Before you know that it will become habit, and things will line up to bring answers to your problems that make you feel happy, peaceful and secure. You must align your thoughts with MINE and not those of Satan!”

 

You see, God has a purpose for each life. He never gives up on that purpose, and as we keep our mind on the positive attributes of God’s Kingdom, and His will for our lives, we shift the negative focus to one that is positive and the heavenly realms respond to it and bring back positive things in our lives.

 

The same thing can be said about our finances and what we see as a lack of money. We look at what we see around us and we panic. We say things like, “The economy is bad, the world is in a bad state financially and I do not know what to do!” Our minds do not know the difference. If we say those things then those things come to pass. Instead we can shift that by feeling the same feelings we would feel if we had enough money to pay our bills on time, do some things we want to do and bless others. We then start to praise God for the things we do have. God operates in an attitude of gratitude. So many times we hear people say, “Get real, tell it like it is!” Telling it “like it is” will keep things like they are, in our lives, forever.

 

The Word of God says, in 3 John 2;  Beloved, I wish above all things that thou may prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospers.”

 

What story are you telling everyone today? Are you full of self-pity and worry? Do you repeat that over and over every time you speak to someone? Doing that sets us up for failure. Instead write a new story for yourself. Set goals and see yourself as a person that has the power, with the help of God, to tear up the bad chapter in your story and write one in which you are happy, healthy and prosperous.

 

Focus on your God given purpose in life. Do not focus on the problems.

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!

In His Miraculous Love,
Cathie
