Psalm 34:8 O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. 2 Corinthians 5:7 For we walk by faith, not by sight.
I would like to share a Testimony of what God just recently did for me. I know that this is not a Christian Network per-say but somebody needs to hear this! Most of you know that I'm a Care Giver for my Mother and I don't work a full time job. We had a huge bill that was due on the 2nd (6/2/) and there was no money nowhere in sight, so I anguished over this for over a month! I told the Lord that this would be one time that I was not going to worry and I kept that promise! Without Faith, it is impossible to please God!
Every day I watched and I prayed, I prayed and I watched each and every day! My patience & Faith were being tried but yet I stood on the Word of God and I even reminded Him of the words that He spoke, "I will never leave you nor forsake you!" It kept getting closer and closer to the time for the bill to be paid and it seemed as though I was coming to the end of my rope. The first of the month came and still no funds! (bill due the 2nd) Doubt and worry tried to creep in but every time those thoughts tried to enter my mind, I called it down in the name of Jesus!!! I kept rebuking the devil and he had no choice in the matter, he had to flee!!! I was determined that even though things were at the wire and it looked grim, I was not going to let my Faith waiver! Job 13:15 Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him: but I will maintain mine own ways before him.
Listen ya'll, on the same day that the bill was due guess what?...that's when God stepped in!!!.... Hallelujah!!! Thank you Jesus!!! Praise you Father!!! Lord you're so good!!! Excuse me but I had to have another Praise Break, Glory to God! You can't tell me that God is not real! He has worked so many miracles in my life and I just have to tell my story! I just can't keep it to myself and I want the whole world to know that He lives! What I'm trying to get you all to see is this; if I had a lot of doubt and worry in my heart, I might not have received my timely answer and my Blessing! Instead, I held on to my Faith and I didn't let go! It's one thing to say that you have Faith and on the other hand you don't walk the talk. Listen, I have no job, so I don't have nothing but faith and I not only walk and talk Faith...I LIVE IT!!!
If you have not been totally relying on God and trusting Him to see you through, then why not start right now? No matter how grim it seems, just hold on! If you lose some stuff (material things), maybe God is trying to tell you that He allowed this to happen so that He could Bless you with some new stuff! That's the way that I look at life; I see a positive outcome in everything that I go through. And you know what?... I can Praise God in the good times as well as the bad... Why?..... becauseI know who my Daddy God is and I trust Him to take care of me and take full control of my life, in every circumstance, not just in some things, but in all things and in every aspect of my life! Proverbs 3:6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
In everything give thanks because He knows what's best for you! I love each one of you so much and that's why I'm pouring my heart out to you, to let you know that JESUS LOVES YOU! You're here for a reason, so it's time for you to be about your Father's Business. Get right with God and serve Him with your whole heart! Don't wait until something happens to call on Him, call on Him while He is near and while He may be found. Ephesians 3:20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.
We're going through some tough times right now and sometimes things look so grim and you just don't know which way to turn! Some of you may be going through worse things that I'm going through right now but God is no respecter of persons and just like He Blessed me (and still does), He can do the same thing for you but you just have to release your Faith and just let your troubles & worries go! Some of you may have lost your homes or your jobs, or even a loved one but I want you to know that God has not forgotten you! He allows us to go through some stuff sometimes, so that we can learn how to trust and rely on Him in every aspect of our lives! When you're going through, just picture Him carrying you.
It aint over till it's over, so no matter what you may be facing right now; hold your head up for your redemption draweth nigh! Learn how to lean on Him and the only way to do that is to spend time with Him daily! He knows what's going to take place before you do but there are some things that you just have to walk through in order to build your FAITH. I'm telling you from experience that He knows how to fix it! Someone told me just last night that they blamed God for some of what they were going through but I explained to him that we go through things for a reason and the worse thing that you can do is blame God for whatever the situation! Instead of turning away from God, you need to run to Him! I also told this person that in some cases maybe he needed to blame satan instead of God! Satan has children too and he's doing everything that He can do to kill, steal and destroy, especially with God's children and His chosen ones.
I'm not writing a Novel today but I was led to share this with everyone and I'm just being obedient to the Holy Spirit. Whoever this is meant for, they will receive it, Amen? Jesus said to cast all of your cares upon Him and learn of Him!...His yoke is easy and His burdens are light. Take time to know the Father because you just don't know the Blessings that you're forfeiting just because you want to do your own thing and I'm speaking to the ones that need to hear this. My purpose is to encourage you in the Faith. I want you to mount up on wings as Eagles, run and not get weary, walk and not faint! To the ones who are not walking close to God and you know that you need to, this message is for you! To the ones who do not know or believe in God, this message is for you! God is real!!! Listen to this: John 20:29 Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed. And if you still don't believe, consider this: Romans 14:11 For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. I will leave you with these powerful words as a quote from my Mother: "He may not come when you want Him, but He's always on time!!!" And she also said, "The Lord Will Make A Way Somehow...All You Have To Do Is Trust In Him!!!" Amen!
Jesus, I'm tired! I believe that you are the son of God and I believe that you died for me. I confess that I am a sinner! Please forgive me for my sin; come into my life and live your life in me. Save my soul Father, in Jesus' precious name I Pray, Amen!
