So, upon hearing of the impending Hurricane Dorian, my prayers have been focused on asking God to diminish the hurricane or flick it into the sea. And today, I received word from the meteorologist that the plots were all in agreement that thr hurricane was indeed flicked into sea and will be travelling north now in the Atlantic. And I tell you, God answers prayers every time we humbly pray. And sometimes, as in this amazing instance, He answers us the way we ask. But know that He always answers prayers for the best of everyone involved. And know this… God is so very good!!!! He is a loving Father and takes great care of His children. Praise God, who has proven yet again that He is bigger than any hurricane!!!❤❤❤
Some things, I am learning gradually but do not yet quite understand 100%. One of these is the perpetuation of prayer, it’s continuousness in my soul and spirit of asking God stuff. I can have an issue or problem on my mind or soul or spirit and rather than issuing the same prayer about it more than once, God continues to hear that prayer and at the right time when I am ready to receive the answer, God indeed answers that problem. I had that happen today and I am out loud giving God the glory for the answer to a problem of about a year now. And I received the answer through a fellow blogger’s blog tonight, Joshua Shea, and he is searching, not a Christian yet to my knowledge. But I am quite certain the answer was from the Holy Spirit nonetheless. And the glory goes to God almighty, who can answer our prayers and clarify our issues however and through whomever He wishes. I am floored by the amazing God we serve! Oh how I love Him!❤❤❤
The creep was reported finally, caught, prosecuted, punished. Truth is out. Truth is visible. This, my friends, was an answer to prayer. I and many others, I am certain, have fasted and prayed that truth would be revealed and seen in its entirety and evil would be exposed, prosecuted and punished to the fullest extent of the law. We have prayed this for a long time and God has seen fit to answer our prayers. This is the beginning. Truth, silenced for far too long, will be growing. God answers prayers. We are still praying, still fasting, still full of faith in God, in Truth. And more people are joining our ranks against this spiritual warfare every day. I know because we are praying for that too. And God still answers prayer and still is in ultimate control of this entire universe. Join ranks. Help us pray. Read the Bible. Fast. Anything you can do. And God fights for us whenever we humbly bow to ask Him to. Praise God!!!!❤❤❤
I used to pray for arms to hold me. I had always assumed that meant a man and my husband is not naturally a hugger and frankly pushes me away because I am too hot (temperature wise not sexy but ya know… lol). So I had misinterpreted that as unanswered prayer. And when my daughter surprised us with her presence, I just now realized why God gave me this precious treasure. She is a cuddle bunny. She loves to be held and hold on tight. Duh me, God answered my prayer for hugs from my little girl, the huggingest person you would ever want to meet. Thank you, God, for her and answered prayers!!❤❤❤
What truly makes a decision difficult is most often us. Our uncertainty, lack of faith/trust, distractions, input from others, masks or just plain pride are the accomplices to the crime of difficulty but the gunman is generally just a focus on the details so much that God’s big picture and will are shadowed. Often it is really an easy decision shrouded in emotional or spiritual baggage. What really makes us have difficulty with a decision is the enemy. He works overtime on causing distraction and loss of focus and even procrastination and evil influences of others. He takes pride in steering us the wrong direction and loves to see us sweat it out while his plan is going strong. The decision whether to do right or wrong is never a gray decision, never difficult. However, if the enemy has his way, he tempts us to a myriad of shades of gray until little compromises are made. Usually, big decisions are difficult when they involve the future of other people. In that case, the big picture thinking comes in handy. If you are not cut to see the big picture, maybe you know a fellow Christ follower who is and can help see that big picture you need to make the decision. And if you don’t have such a person in your circle, or even if you do, here is a revolutionary practice… Pray about it and read your Bible and then have ask some questions in your head and you will be surprised how many times God’s Holy Spirit answers your question in your head or heart OR the opportunity that shows up soon after. God is not dead. He is absolutely alive and active and His Holy Spirit dwells/lives in every person who is saved. So, with His help decisions cease to be difficult or ugly. They clear up when you ask the Lord for help and are open for His answer.
