Praise God for giving me the mind to remember another testimony of His. As I sat down this evening to clean up some broken links in this blog, I came across this testimony from God where He was revealing Himself. It took place last Thanksgiving: An answered prayer testimony for Matthew. As I read this, I recalled another one that happened with Matthew. This was an answered prayer and God revealed Himself.. I pray that Matthew has the eyes to see that it was God.. and I pray it blesses your heart –
I recalled this testimony just now, thank you Lord for bringing it to mind. This one was so cool. I’m very surprised it has not been blogged already. Praise God for the reminder. There have been 2 umbrella testimonies with the Holy Spirit guiding me. This is the 1st one. The 2nd one was equally, if not more amazing. It can be checked out here: Bible study and Umbrella Testimony
This happened around a year ago. I was driving down a local road and was passing the highway entrance ramp. There was an unction from the Spirit.. get on the highway. It’s so hard to explain these unctions and guidance. It’s a still-small voice, but it isn’t one that is looked for.. It just happens. This was weird.. I was like.. “um.. what?” As I’m questioning, I start turning my steering wheel onto the highway, lol. I was like, ok! We’re going this way.
The Lord continued to flow this morning on the last topic: Life with God and Jesus. I so thank God for the Body of Jesus Christ (you) as it helps me understand the things that happen in life.
Natural man’s understanding of coincidences in life are deemed as something of chance, an oddity, happenstance, etc. Man’s understanding of the word coincidence is not based on what the word really means. As we set our eyes on the things that are unseen, we see these things are coincidences if we know the definition of the word. Look at the word coincidence (the root: coincide). The websters definition of coincidence: (also explained in this posting)
1 a : to occupy the same place in space or time b : to occupy exactly corresponding or equivalent positions on a scale or in a series
2 : to correspond in nature, character, or function
3 : to be in accord or agreement
This is gonna get good, thank you Lord –
It is an interesting thing to watch the Word of God come alive in life. Everything that the Word teaches is real, very real. It is the Living Word of God.
The Word is fluid, it moves with us through our walk in life. Living Water. He speaks through the Word with teaching, moldings, conviction, and so on. He guides us and fellowships with us through the Word. Prayers are answered and He reveals His will. Here are a couple of examples:
Thank you Lord, I love you too.
Here is a revelation/testimony/teaching from the Lord: Over the past couple of months, I have been drawn repeatedly to fast, and have given half-hearted efforts. It has been on my mind a couple of times a week for a while now. As recent as this week, I gave another half-hearted effort.
Then, also, over the past month, He’s giving signs pertaining to the Sabbath. A sister in-Christ started talking about it a month or so ago. She’s a Messianic Jew and we talked about it a couple of times. Then our Wednesday night service at church started to discuss the topic a week or 2 later.
Both the Sabbath and Fasting have been tugging at my heart. As He does so well, He brought it all together for me tonight –
When I consider why I worry, become anxious, get stressed, or even depressed, it’s because I believe in the lies of the enemy instead of the written word of God. This pops into my head many times when such thoughts are running across my mind, “O ye of little faith?”.
I thank God for my Pastor teaching me about this verse. The flesh/pride can roar up when we hear someone say such a thing to us. It sounds like an attack on our character, we don’t like it (at least I don’t!) Why? Probably because it’s true! haha. Our pride surely does not like being told that we may not be where we thought we were. At any rate, a better way to say this verse that I heard from my Pastor.. “underdeveloped faith.” It’s saying the same thing, same meaning.. but “ye of little faith” sounds negative to my flesh.
I decided to look at the situations where Jesus used this phrase..
Last week as I lay down to sleep, I heard as loud as day in my head “August 8th”. No clue where it came from, it just popped into my head. I was like “Um, ok? It must be important.”
Then, over the past couple of days, I’ve been drawing in to the Lord. I’ve been realizing that He’s been guiding me deeper with Him, but I have taken little action. Today, I was reading my Oswald Chambers daily devotion and I decided to skip ahead to August 8th and 9th. Boy, did this speak –
