I seem to be living in a twighlight zone right now. I can’t believe the sequents of events over the past week or two but something I am sure of is that the Almighty is watching me very closely.
We think we don’t hear Him very well but God is very resourceful with his messenger service.
My inbox has literally been flooded over this week with repeated messages from friends and complete strangers and even advertisements all pointing to the same message
“ Lean on me and trust in me and all will be good and purposeful” “I am right here with you!”
With out going into detail will tell you this. I have experienced much pain and emotional challenges of late. This happened right at a time when I thought all was wonderful and had made decisions to commit to a certain future.
When my hope and dreams fell apart I literally threw myself at God’s feet asking why? Every day after I asked what I should do, asking Him to reveal truth, how should I pray, what should I say when I pray for the people who have hurt me, help me to behave appropriately and to be gracious and righteous. Send me the right people to help me, block the people that will mislead me, empty me of earthly feelings and reactions and fill me with his Holy Spirit and please show me what is going to happen to me now that I felt broken and defeated.
I have to say the outcome of these events would have been terrible had I had not found Jesus and been able to tap into God with all His loving grace.
Through this grace I was heard loud and clearly. Through his love for me I was also answered in more ways than one. Enough was revealed to me to understand what to do and messages of hope flooded in. I reacted very differently to what I would have expected. At times when I thought I would spin out into despair I felt opposite emotion. I felt safe, protected and very grateful for my Big daddy in heaven! i have had moments of despair and terrible pain however I leaned into my faith and so reacted much better than I would have had I not known God was my resource. I didn’t act better because I should. I was lead. (well actually that is not entirely true as at times i had to just do what I thought was right when I was filled with resentment. At times I was completely removed from my pain and found myself thinking of only of the people who hurt me and wanting to help them.
I am very surprised in how selfless one can be through the heart and spirit of Jesus. He has taken much of my load and turned it into good simply because i asked and believed He would help. I am relieved His spirit is working within me.
My pain is lessened; thoughts clearer and I feel quite secure. This is not the raving of a religious nut that has a vivid imagination. I know that certain occurrences and prompting was of God and far too well timed, purposefully good and coincidental to be anything else.
I guess I write this in the Hope that these words will encourage someone who needs to hear it. Maybe a confirmation of what you already know or sense. People I have never met have been prompted to tell me things out of the blue, not knowing anything about my situation but so appropriate to the moment and repeditive. God uses people to communicate to others His intentions and I have found he understands my ignorance and so is quite repeditive. I believe He wanted me to write this too. Why else would I be using up so much of my time that was supposed to allocate to other commitments.I hope it helps someone.
I am learning to know my God much rapidly only because I have earnestly sought it from the highest, wisest authority (God Himself)and through His word; the Bible. If you want answers or need direction you have to go straight to the top where the answers will be honest and of value.
And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.
How true is that – Golly those words are revolutionary to anyone who finally realises them.
I have had proof of them and it is very reassuring that we all have that love and help waiting for us.
