By A Thin Thread

Courage Against The Odds

What battles have you found yourself in? How long have you been waiting for the touch of God to break forth into your life? How many prayers have you prayed but they don’t seem to be answered? How much have you struggled and held on, only to feel defeated?

If you are anything like me, it has been a very long and tough battle. Everything that could go wrong, has! Everything you loved or worked so hard for has been taken away! Everything you’ve tried to do has been less than successful. Blow after blow has left you feeling crushed, broken, and exhausted!

It would be easy to give up. It would be easy to say forget it. It would be easy to say “why should I go on?”. It would be easy to let it all go and start playing the world’s way. You’ve been fighting the battles for so long, it’s easy to lose all hope because you are holding on by a very thin thread!

Well I’m here to tell you…HOLD ON, GOD’S NOT DONE WITH YOU YET and you are primed for the biggest comeback, the most amazing restoration, the most incredible and prosperous time of your life. God has seen you struggle. He has seen your tears. He has seen your defeat. But he has also seen you hold onto your little bit of faith; which in itself is a miracle that you could hold onto it through it all.

Deuteronomy 20:4 “for the Lord your God is he who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies, to give you the victory.”

Matthew 21:21 “Truly I tell you,” Jesus replied, “if you have faith and do not doubt, not only will you do what was done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, ‘Be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ it will happen.”

One thing to keep in mind is that we are still in the timeframe between Passover and Pentecost. This is the time when the disciples watched Jesus die on the cross and ran for their lives. They were in dire straits. Here they thought Jesus was going to make everything alright, only to watch the Son of God be crucified. And they were next. But then, 50 days later in the upper room, they were filled with the Holy Spirit which gave them courage, wisdom, and the strength to go out and change the world for the Gospel.

You’ve been through alot and there’s no doubt in my mind that you have had to struggle to hold on to any ounce of faith. That’s okay. God understands and knows that you are doing your very best to keep believing. Just hold on for a little bit longer. June 4th marks God’s Pentecost. It’s His time to break the curses that have been plaguing you! And if that’s not enough…we are in a very prophetic time frame of Israel’s jubilee which means double blessings for those who are standing with God’s people! It’s God’s time for signs, wonders, and miracles. It’s the time that God will rebuke the devourer for your sake and pays back everything that has been stolen. Don’t miss your moment!

God’s restoration is coming. He promises to restore far greater than anything you’ve lost. Don’t give up your hope! Keep standing on His word and see it come to pass in your life.

God promises that you are more than a conqueror! (Romans 8:37) He promises that you will overcome and have the victory! (I John 5:4) He promises to be fighting the battle for you. It doesn’t matter what you feel or see…God is fighting on your behalf!

Your greatest moments of life are right in front of you. Don’t give up just when it’s right around the corner and in sight. You’ve fought your way around the mountains, over and over and over again. You’re almost there! Hold on for God is about to burst forth into your life like never before. Don’t lose your courage and don’t lose your ground when your best times are just ahead!

The Healing Power

Cast Your CareThis past week, I found myself surrounded in doctors when my mom was rushed to the hospital.  We had no idea what was happening and soon found out that it was very serious.  As more and more tests were taken, fear tried to persuade me that she wasn’t going to make it.  I had a choice to make; either give into the fear or start pleading the blood.

In order for me to take control of the feelings pressuring me to make the wrong choices, I sent a Prayer Call to all of our family and friends on Facebook.  I needed help and in a BIG WAY!  As soon as I hit the enter button, I immediately felt the weight of the world lift off my shoulders.

Right before mom went into surgery, we prayed to the Great Physician; knowing that God is our healer and protector in all situations.  The surgery went well, however, mom had an adverse reaction to the anesthesia.  She found herself unable to breathe and shivering non-stop.  This was not a normal reaction and we came very close to losing her.  Now, during this time, I could have panicked.  I could have given up.  Heck, I could have even started yelling at God.  But, something very different happened instead.

While I’m watching the hospital staff do everything they could to save mom, I found myself speaking in tongues.  I just opened my mouth and uttered whatever it was the Holy Spirit knew I needed.  The more I spoke, the worse mom got.  Then it hit me like a ton of bricks…THE DEVIL IS A LIAR, don’t believe what you see.

Fervently, I kept praying in tongues asking the Holy Spirit to take over the situation because I had no clue what was going on, nor what mom needed.  All of a sudden, mom was breathing and calming down.  It was like the angels surrounded her in God’s amazing healing power.  Within 24 hours, she did a miraculous 360 degree turnaround.  It was one of the most amazing things I have ever encountered.

1 Corinthians 14:2 “For those who speak in a tongue do not speak to other people but to God; for nobody understands them, since they are speaking mysteries in the Spirit.”

Full armor of GodMiracles do still happen!  And I’m here today to tell you that no matter what you encounter and no matter what you see, God is still in the miracle business.  He is still intervening in ways we can’t comprehend.

So, the next time you find yourself under fire and nothing appears to be going right, speak in tongues and watch God’s healing power come to life in your situation.  For He truly is a Loving, Protecting, and Caring Father!
