Howdy friends! Yes, it sure has been a while since I posted. I appreciate the concern by some who have emailed. Thanks for checking in on me, much appreciated.
All is well, very well. The Lord has really been doing a number on me over the past couple of weeks after the previous 2-3 posts. They were life changing events and I have been spending time talking with the Lord. At any rate, thank you for your concerns. Love you too. :)
This Testimony of Guidance was very nice today.. God’s perfect timing. It sure is weird how He accomplishes these things. Anyways, let me just get it out.
Thank you Lord for this testimony of a wake up call. I pray it blesses you.
For the past couple of weeks, the furnace was periodically not igniting the electronic pilot light, which caused the exhaust fan to continually run. It would happen around 1-2 times a day. A slight bump on the electronic ignition module would kick it in. I thought it was fixed, but apparently it was not.
As I went to bed Tuesday night, I began to worry about the pilot not lighting in the middle of the night and the exhaust fan burning up because of it continually running. I remember self-talk responding with something like: “Don’t worry, the Lord is with you. He will help you and take care of this” and a sense of peace came over me. Trust..
At 4:27 a.m., I get a wake up call from God. It was a spiritual phone call. I just woke up and immediately felt/heard “check the furnace”. I went to check. As I walk by the thermostat, I notice that the furnace should have just kicked on (temp in the house was 1 degree lower than the thermostat setting), but the furnace didn’t light.
The next day, I was taking a look at it. I knew the Lord was helping me and I felt confident that He had shown me where the problem was at (in the connection from the wiring). I placed a piece of tape to secure the wire in place, and the furnace hasn’t shut off since. Praise the Lord, my God and my Helper. Thank you Lord.
This will go under my “Miscellaneous Ramblings”. This is just an example of evil. I see lies, deception, etc. This most definitely isn’t a political statement, but it is an example of who we should trust. God and men of God will not play such games:
Yes, indeed it has been a while since my last post. I was waiting on the Lord for my next witnessing to His blessedness. All in His perfect timing.
Praise God for answered prayers. Here is a testimony from the Lord (and a great lesson) – Faith, Obedience, and Blessings. I pray this blesses you –
The Lord God revealed to me that I am afraid of the unknown in-Christ. God, help me in my unbelief. I have had a few dreams that I didn’t understand, but now when I look at them globally, it seems that I am afraid of the path less traveled, the unknown, death to self, complete surrender, etc. If you have wisdom in interpreting dreams, I really could use some help from the Body (especially prayers). I’ll explain each one and what my understanding is. If the Spirit guides you to a different understanding, please, by all means, please jump in or shoot me an email from the contact me form. Lord, help me by sending me an angel.
Keep It Simple Servant – Boy, do I over complicate things. Faith and obedience, it’s really that simple, servant!
Obedience as a servant takes action – Moses, strike the Nile with your rod. Raise your rod Moses. Strike the rock with your rod Moses. March around Jericho 7 times and shout. Lepers, go show the priest you are healed. Pick up your mat and walk. Keep it simple servant – Have faith and choose God (servant), hear His word, then take an action in obedience. Simple enough, right? It only gets complicated after my ideas start to get involved. I end up trying to figure things out myself (Proverbs 3:5-8). When I do this, I have walked right into the war zone, Spirit vs Flesh. Keep it Simple Servant –
Apparently the Lord is on a new teaching this week for me. I have received 3 confirmations to my request: “reveal any hidden wickedness in me.” A month or so ago, He revealed that money and worry of money is a focus in my life. Since then, I’ve been getting bits and pieces of recognition of it in my life. It’s been on my mind and conviction is starting to settle in.
The Lord provides for the poor, the homeless, for the birds, for the lilies of the field, the bees, His churches/ministries, the grass in the field, etc. and here I am.. worrying about money, finances, etc. Lord, I believe, help me with my unbelief. Here is a very good lesson and a testimony that I received from a homeless man. First, the 3 confirmations –
