Testimony of the Glory of God

For months since my daughter and her boys moved in with us we have not been able to find her glasses. I thought I packed them in a box of stuff from her kitchen, in a safe place, so we unpacked over a dozen boxes and repacked them, and didn't find the glasses. I prayed several times, "Oh God please help me find her glasses"... to no avail...

A lot has happened in my daughters life this last year, and she was so lost, and so uninterested in God, yet of late He has been dealing in a very heavy way with her, and drawing her by His Holy Spirit. She in turn has been responding to His wooing and starting to try and read the Bible.

Well today I went into her closet and started to go through some more plastic boxes, where I thought perhaps I had packed her glasses, I picked up her Bible and I said once more, "Oh Lord please please help me find her glasses, she needs them to read her Bible." and the Lord said,

"They are in a coat pocket!" ... and a little light went on in my head, and so we started searching coat pockets, and sure enough in the inside pocket of one big jacket, there were her glasses, Glory to God! now she can read her Bible without eye strain....God is Good!!
This was a real "God thing" because this old gal, had no recollection of it being in any coat pocket, but packed away!!!!
My daughter is so thrilled, she just asked me if I wanted to sit outside with her and read our Bibles together!

God is Good and God is Faithful All Glory to His Name!

Saints this last week I witnessed a lost soul admitted to the hospital in a very distressed condition. Yet this was the Lord moving to get their attention. It takes a lot for some people to hear the voice of God, because they are so set on their own way. God has to put a bit in the mouth of some to make them heed Him, because He is Good, and He is not willing that any perish, but that all come to repentance.

And God is Faithful to hear our prayers, and to answer, and we must always trust that He is in control, and He does know what is best for all, at all times, and in all circumstances. He loves more than any other, and He has all power. I witnessed the hand of God at work in that hospital room, and am continuing to witness the mighty power of God, and His most gracious love, He is truly the miracle worker.

This soul is now seeking after Him, because He is drawing them to repentance, they are becoming the clay in His hands that He desires them to be, Praise His Holy name.

Never give up saints and never give in, for with God all things are possible if we only believe!

Please hold this soul up to God, for it was the devils intention, to steal, kill and destroy, but God is able to save, and heal. It is better to enter into Heaven halt and lame, than to have all our members functioning and enter into hell.

Are You Resistant to Change and some what Anxious of the Unknown?

I was doing some thinking this morning ... imagine that!

Anyway, I have always been one who doesn't take to easily to change, apprehension of the unknown ya know!? And I have been undergoing some changes this last year or so, with yet more to come.

But I was thinking God never changes, He is the one constant and consistent presence in the lives of the children of God. Where ever we go He goes, and He goes ahead to make the way for us. We have no need to be concerned of change when we belong to Him, because He leads us in the path that we should go.

He has so many and varied reasons for the changes He brings into our lives, but mainly that we learn to have absolute trust in Him.

There is no place in the Heavens above nor the earth beneath that we can go to escape from the hand of God, and that includes for the purpose of our good.

God is ever present, and with us in and through all things. We can lean on Him and be guaranteed that He will sustain us through any and all circumstances that may arise in our lives.

Jesus Christ is our Rock!
I don't know about you saint of God, but I say Amen to these words from the old hymn ...
"On Christ the solid Rock I stand all other ground is sinking sand!!!!

Does God Sometimes Give Us More Than We Can Bear?

Yes He does... contrary to the common myth, and misquotation of scripture, which says "God never gives you more than you can bear"

Could you, or I, have held up alone under what our brother Job had to suffer through?

Do you not think he had more than he thought he could bear?

Is not the loss of a loved one, more than we can humanly bear?

Was not the prospect of death on the cross more than Jesus Christ thought He could bear?
Christ thought His Father had forsaken Him. Jesus Christ was overwhelmed

Matthew 27:46
And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, EliEli, EliEli, lamalama sabachthanisabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?

David felt he had more than he could bear, and thought that God had forsaken him, David was overwhelmed:

Psalms 22:1
1. My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring.

Do not men and women kill themselves daily, because they think their burdens are to much to bear?

Just what does the scripture actually say?

1 Corinthians 10:13-14
13. There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
14. Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry.

This scripture is relating to the temptations that God allows to come our way, or the burdens and trials He allows which seek to destroy our faith. However it is up to us, whether we accept the way of escape that the Lord gives us, or we choose to drown in our own misery, or sin, and curse God, as Job's wife wanted him to do. Job to thought God had forsaken him, Job was overwhelmed.

God tells us to bear one another's burdens, because He knows full well that at times just as in the case of our brother Job, our trials can overwhelm us. Or in the case of Moses who needed the assistance of others that he may continue to intercede for the people.

Exodus 17:11-12
11. And it came to pass, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed: and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed.
12. But Moses’ hands were heavy; and they took a stone, and put it under him, and he sat thereon; and Aaron and Hur stayed up his hands, the one on the one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun.

God is a compassionate God, who cares for us, and we need to care for one another. When given opportunity we need to be willing to bear one another's burdens, because we will all have burdens to bear.

Galatians 6:2
Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.

We are to pray one for another also, "The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much". So we can all be effective in helping alleviate the burdens of others.

If your burden is heavy today saint of God, press in and trust God with every fiber of your being, and He will bring you comfort, He will bring you strength, and He will bring you encouragement. If you submit yourself to Him, He will cause you to rise above the waters!

Choosing to Trust God Every Day!!!!

You know saints, we have a choice when we get up every day, we can choose to worry, or we can choose to Trust God. We can choose to fret, and stew over things, and what if's, or we can rest in the peace of God which passes all human understanding.

We can contemplate our lives, and or the lives of our loved ones, and panic, we can look at news reports, that if we let them, could put anxiety and turmoil into our hearts.. In fact the scriptures tell us that men's hearts will be failing because of the fear that comes from observing all the turmoil and the things that are coming upon the earth in the last days...

There is a fear for every liking, as governments remove more and more "rights" that people thought they had, and fears and anxieties increase....

However the antidote for fear is trust in God.

He said that He cares for us, that He knows what we have need of before we even ask Him, He says He will provide for us, as He does the flowers of the fields, and the birds of the air...

He is our health insurance policy...because it is He who says when one lives or dies.

He has a plan for each of His children, and He shall bring it to fruition, regardless of any government ....or any man, or woman....or any circumstance...because He is God!

So saints think it not strange, this fiery trial that is besieging you, because it is working in you, for your good, and it is intended to draw you ever closer to your Heavenly Father...because He wants you to be 100% dependant upon Him for all things. He wants to be the center of your universe!!!!!

We are not to trust our own hearts, we are not to lean to our own carnal understanding, be are to trust in the One with whom NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE!!!!

L.A. Teacher Calls for Mexican Revolt in the U.S.

America your enemies lie in wait to overtake you allow the enemies of God to over run the land of Israel so shall God allow you to be over run by your enemies. Because you have forsaken God so shall God forsake you!

Of course we do not judge all Mexican Americans by this one man.

The Muslims are on the ground in America, and America you ARE serving strangers in a land that is no longer yours!

Jeremiah 5:19

And it shall come to pass, when ye shall say, Wherefore doeth the LORD our God all these things unto us? then shalt thou answer them, Like as ye have forsaken me, and served strange gods in your land, so shall ye serve strangers in a land that is not yours.

Persecuted By The Beast - Meet and Know the Truth about Your Enemy America!

When The Enemy comes in Like a Flood!

Saints there are times when God allows trials, and at the same time, the enemy comes in like a raging flood, condemning and accusing and trying to push us down and under, and to cause us to be overcome and overwhelmed.

Often times we see trials as God's anger with us, or his discipline toward us, when what He is doing is refining us, that we might come forth as gold, that in the end He may say, "Well done thou good and faithful servant, enter ye into the joy of the LORD."
Satan and his minions, take great pleasure in the suffering of the saints. We need to remind him, that we look for a city who's builder and maker is God, where in dwelleth righteousness, where we shall live forever, where there shall be no tears or suffering. Do not allow Satan to overwhelm you with your present trials, don't listen to his cries of death and destruction.
If we place our trust in the Lord He will cause us to triumph. All these things that come our way, are intended to perfect the fruit of the spirit in our lives, and increase our faith in our Deliverer.
Isaiah 59:19
So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him.

Now as you can see in the comments section, some what to move the comma in this scripture here in Isaiah, but if you study out this matter you can see that the comma is right where God intended it to be.  We must allow scripture to interpret itself. Who is the enemy? Satan the Dragon!
Revelation 12:15
And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up “the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.”

So it is Satan that comes in like a flood, and it is the Holy Spirit that lifts up the standard against him.

If we look to the Lord, and trust and depend upon HIM in our time of trouble, He will exercise HIS authority over the enemy of our souls...He shall come to our rescue. He will hold our heads above the flood.
Hebrews 11:8-10
8. By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went.
9. By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise:
10. For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.
Saints we must keep our hearts set upon things above, and not on the things of this earth, if we wish to be overcomers. We must not allow ourselves to become distracted by our troubles. God sees all and He knows all, and we can have confidence in HIM.
We should be able to say even in the midst of trouble..."This is the day that the LORD has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it, knowing that this present trial is working a far greater thing in me, that will profit for all eternity!"
Yes God brings good and He brings the hard times into our lives, that He may purify us and that That in and through that process, He may receive the glory in all things.
Choose to rejoice in the midst of your suffering, put on the garment of Praise for the spirit of heaviness!!!
Romans 8:18
For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
