Hello there! Been awhile huh? Well, life happens 🙂 yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us (Romans 8:28). A big thank you to all that have been reading my blog regardless of my absence! I see your visits. God bless you.
Today I just want to speak to those that have been facing various prolonged battles in their lives and somehow have lost hope and are just hanging in there, and are even mad at God. Some have been praying for a breakthrough for YEARS and nothing seems to improve. Sickness, poverty, delays, spiritual battles of all kinds, rejection, etc are raging at you and you just can not take it anymore…well, THERE IS LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL! Yep, I said it! And yes, going through the tunnel can be the most excruciating experience that you will ever face! But hey…the scriptures tell us that we will go through the fires and the raging storms…BUT…we will not be alone, though at such times, you may feel the loneliest! The tunnel(trying times) is not pretty,.. it is scary and dark and just horrible!! But guess what! JESUS is THERE WITH YOU and He will see you through it! Do NOT give up nor give IN to the lies of the devil!
“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, Nor shall the flame scorch you. For I am the LORD your God, The Holy One of Israel, your Savior; I gave Egypt for your ransom, Ethiopia and Seba in your place.”
Victory is guaranteed! HOW?
STICK TO THE WORD!!
Joshua:1.8 says, “This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.”
When it says day and night, it literally means day and night! You think/meditate THE WORD, speak(roar) THE WORD, you feel THE WORD, read THE WORD, listen to THE WORD, all the time until it becomes the ONLY world you live in!!! I did that when I was battling all sorts of spiritual attacks and it worked! You got to saturate your spirit with THE WORD until every cell in your body vibrates with THE WORD….and then suddenly or slowly by slowly, depending on your faith and situation,… the rain (BREAKTHROUGH/BLESSINGS) will begin to POUR!! Oh it ain’t easy, no! Saturating the clouds ain’t easy, because forces will be coming against you to weaken and discourage you. Remember, Matthew 11:12 “And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.” You have got to claim your blessings because they have already been freely provided.
AND at first, there may be no sign of progress or improvement whatsoever…just like Elijah praying for the rain 7 times…don’t give up! The rain will pour!
So Ahab went up to eat and drink. And Elijah went up to the top of Carmel; then he bowed down on the ground, and put his face between his knees,
and said to his servant, “Go up now, look toward the sea.” So he went up and looked, and said, “[There is] nothing.” And seven times he said, “Go again.”
Then it came to pass the seventh [time,] that he said, “There is a cloud, as small as a man’s hand, rising out of the sea!” So he said, “Go up, say to Ahab, ‘Prepare [your chariot,] and go down before the rain stops you.’ ”
Now it happened in the meantime that the sky became black with clouds and wind, and there was a heavy rain. So Ahab rode away and went to Jezreel.
Galatians:6.9 “And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. “
James:5.16 “The effective, fervent(continuous) prayer of a righteous man avails much.”
I could write a whole book on this, lol, so let me end here by these words…GOD IS FAITHFUL, KEEP PRAYING even if the only strength left in your body is the strength to BREATHE! If you get overwhelmed rest, cry, run, punch the pillows, scream but…DO NOT GIVE UP. I have been there, in the TUNNEL, and HE got me out! Now, I testify that the WORD of God is alive and it WORKS!
Joshua:1.9 “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God [is] with you wherever you go.”
If you want to accept Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, say this prayer;
“Lord Jesus, I repent all of my sins. I confess that you are indeed Lord and believe that God has raised you from the dead. Come into my heart and be my Lord and Saviour. In your name I pray, AMEN!
