In the last 3 days My God has given me the privilege of sitting with 3 different women, in 3 different stages of life and dealing with 3 different levels in their relationships with God.
They have one thing in common…they are going through a really TOUGH time. God is presenting them with taking them deeper in their walks with Jesus, the Healer and Provider of our Souls. They have to step out in Faith and trust that He knows best. UMPH! I have been there and gotten the t-shirt! Weird thing is – I know I will have another opportunity for God to take me deeper again very soon. He does things like that.
I have been privileged enough to be able to share a prayer of restoration and deliverance with each of them. God has shown up and SHATTERED their stronghold away! God is such an awesome God! Did you know that?
I witnessed God bring hope across their face when they were still at the beginning of their journey. It was all because they were able to hear the testimony of another friend and how God, through the power of the Holy Spirit enabled them to CONQUER their problems – LIFE was brought forth.
They began to see HOPE. Yes, they all 3 have seen the enormity of the stage set before them but WOW do they now know that they have God totally on their side to guide them in all the steps they take next! They want to be changed for Jesus. So they can be used by Him for someone else.
Our journey as Christians was never promised as an easy one. But we were promised that God would never leave us nor forsake us. He cares about every little or big problem we have. He wants us to come to Him to receive healing, restoration, forgiveness and wisdom.
He is not finished with our stories. Each trial is like a story that He just keeps building on. They are to make us stronger.
If He started this new work in your life – He is faithful to complete it!
I am just smitten with this new song and had to dance tonight while listening to it before posting this message. I even cried because of the beauty it speaks of my JESUS! It is my NEW FAVORITE TUNE!
Here is one of the verses…
Try and do the best you can
Hold on and let Him hold your hand
And go on and fall into the arms of Jesus
Oh, lift your head it’s gonna end
God’s right there
Even when you just can’t feel Him
I promise you that He still cares
This song speaks my heart to those 3 beautiful women in their desperate-ness to reach for the hand of Jesus. Remember ladies, THIS is going to make you STRONGER! 🙂
Praise him!! Deliverance is a beautiful thing!! Thank you for loving Jesus like you do!
