By Ramone - July 20, 2008
Recently after praying and receiving encouragement from some brothers and sisters in the Lord about something on my heart, I got a picture of Jesus leading us forth. After that I wrote in a note to myself:
Again I am writing things that I need time to sit down and process. Thank You, Lord. I am overwhelmed. I feel like I need a good few days to soak up all You are telling me in the last few posts and comments from brothers & sisters. I'm weeping in the Spirit now. Thank You, Lord. Help me do that, just sit down and soak in You and see what You're saying, receive Your heart, and be overwhelmed even more than I am now. Thank You.My spiritual mum Hazel Holland had made this well-timed comment to me privately when encouraging me:
"Who is among you that fears the Lord, that obeys the voice of His Servant, that walks in darkness and has no light? Let him trust in the name of the Lord and rely on His God." (Isaiah 50:10)This is the picture that came as I read that and heard His witness to it deep inside, prayed, and sought Him. I need to seek Him more. In my flesh I want to look around, to keep "going" on down the path before me. But He's stopped and turned around to face me, stopping me in His love, in His grace.
I believe God wants to remind you to trust His grace at this time when you cannot see the way ahead...
Thank You, Lord. Help me rest in You now, in Jesus' name, amen.
