And not surprising really ~ also not enjoyable. BUT! Because I know where it is coming from, I hold myself upright, my head high and my heart firmly. See, because I know when God is up to something, Satan thinks he needs to rear his ugly head to bring it all down and tear it apart. Well... Satan can stow it! Because I have a God who stands firmly beside me and when life brings me more than I feel I can bare ~ Jesus assures me WE HAVE THIS, and I have you. ahhhhhh Thank you Jesus!
See, Satan thinks he knows my heart, my weakness and where to kick me to bring me down, so he can then kick me when I am down. Well.... what he doesn't know is I'm understand is my heart does not belong to him, it belongs to JESUS. When I am weak, JESUS IS MY STRENGTH, when I fall down, I am rolling over and ON MY KNEES.
When Jesus is working, Satan doesn't like it much. He wants to come in and destroy and damage and break. This week he has worked very hard to do such things.
I have found through PRAYER, LISTENING and PATIENCE, God speaking to me. I am with you. I love you and there is nothing greater than I when your back is up against the wall. THANK YOU JESUS!
In the midst of the turmoil this week, where Satan caused damage, Jesus brought healing. Where Satan felt he had a strong hold, Jesus broke his grip. Where Satan felt he was winning, I gave it to the won who REINS!
Today I am being intentional and praying for those who don't see when Satan rears his ugly head, who are shadowed by the darkness and who have faith, but have fallen into a place where they can not see HIS LIGHT. I pray over those who are much like a ship lost at sea, who believe they can find the shore if they just follow what they know. I pray over these hearts, they will understand it is a sign of strength when we say "I need you Lord" and not a sign of weakness. I pray that Jesus be the lighthouse in their storm. I pray they will stop trying to navigate the waters on their own in the dark and that they will pause and seek HIS LIGHT ~ much like a lighthouse, which is put upon the shore to lead boats to safety. I pray for ears to hear Him. For eyes to see Him and for hearts to Seek Him ~ not only in the storm, but always. Jesus I pray this over those who are reading this and need you, I pray those over those who are in need of unspoken prayers. I pray this Lord in your sweet name, Thank You Jesus. A'men
