As I set down to write this post, I realized that I write a LOT about spiritual things. It made me pause and think, maybe I should write about something lighter. But after praying about it, I can't not write this. It has been on my heart for days. I want to brag on God today. I want to write a little bit about who He is, what He has done,and what He is going to do. This post may be a little long, here it goes....
This week has been a roller coaster of emotions and deep burdens. There has been so much to pray for and to pray about. I have spent a lot of time laying down my cares, my concerns, my desperate cries, my tears, and my prayers at my Lord's feet, only to pick them up again later to worry a little bit more about it all. Then back I go, to lay them down once again when it becomes too much. This was how my week was going, then came Wednesday....what an awesome and powerful day! Our GOD is AWESOME and HE is ALL POWERFUL. It was that night, through many tears and with knees to the earth, the Throne room of Heaven was filled with a Holy Roar as prayers from His Redeemed cried out in one voice for redemption, mercy, restoration, and unity; laying down our burdens at His feet! There is nothing more peaceful than laying it all down and not going back. Leaving it all there, fully trusting that God can and WILL handle it.
As I wept and prayed, I knew that though I was physically alone, I wasn't. Even though the only voice I heard audibly was my own, I couldn't have heard the inaudible any clearer. A great echo was sent out that night and I can't wait to see all of the life-changing miracles that will occur from it.
Matthew 18:19-20 “Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.”
2 Chronicles 7:14 "If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land."
We must remember, He never said it wouldn't come without a fight. And sometimes that battle takes a toll, and it's hard, scary, and exhausting!
Ephesians 6:12-13 "For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand."
But even in through the battle, TRUST HIM and BELIEVE that our God is MIGHTY TO SAVE!!! The battle is already won! And through Him we are victorious!
Psalm 144:1-2 "Praise be to the LORD my Rock,who trains my hands for war,my fingers for battle. He is my loving God and my fortress, my stronghold and my deliverer, my shield, in whom I take refuge, who subdues peoples under me."
Psalm 145:13-14 "The LORD is faithful to all his promises and loving toward all he has made.The LORD upholds all those who fall and lifts up all who are bowed down."
LORD Most High, Sovereign King, we are believing and trusting in Your promises!!
