  2. I do believe though, that going THROUGH the storm takes even MORE faith, than it does to receive the complete healing. WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  3. When we pray, God's answers r yes, no & wait. These answers r definate. If ur like me & d man of God who brought forth the Word 2nite, wait is the answer u struggle with. However, HE tells us 2 wait 2 bring a bigger yes. The best thing about "wait" is HE won't tell u 2 wait now, just 2 tell u no later! During the wait it seems that darkness has overtaken us especially when we're waiting 4 our dreams 2 manifest. But even n that darkness, GOD has provided light. Even if it's just enough light 4 us 2 take 1 step @ a time...like the light of 1 candle n the mist of our darkest time. Sumtimes those dark seasons will cause u 2 get weary or lose hope n d dream ever coming 2 past. U may even 4get the dream. Not because u don't believe it but u just 4get 2 remember them because its so dark u can't see it anymore. I needed a candle n the mist of my waiting. I received 5 candles 2nite & I want 2 share them with all of u. The first 1 is what I mentioned earlier about "yes", "no", & "wait". 2) Never make a permanent decision from a temporary circumstance [darkness is not permanent. Storms don't last always. Eventually, things will calm down]. 3) Don't ever determine your difficulty in the light of what's in your hands. A little becomes much when GOD steps in. It depends on whose hands its in. What you have is not all there is. 4) Don't allow your past memories 2 become bigger than your dreams. 5) Build your own fire 2 kindle the fire of your dreams & dream big!
  4. I prayed after I posted this thread last night, and the Holy Spirit led/reminded me of Hebrews 11:1, which is a study about Faith that I started but never finished; to include the entire chapter. However, the study that I have just completed, took me back. As I was studying this morning, I thought to myself that there would probably be a reply using Hebrews 11 and I should probably go back and edit the thread and be more specific or give my example to start off so that everyone would know what I am talking about. In my case it’s about faith and my children. In your case it could and most likely will be about something else. I know the word of God never loses its power. However, there have been times in my life that a word/scripture that has set me on fire one day, may not do it, even in the same situation, the next day. I need something fresh...something new but not new...you know? I now understand what the word of God spoken over my life in 2005 meant when HE said HE would give me new manna day by day. And I won’t be able to use yesterday’s manna for today (you have to know your yesterday and today). In this season, I am really being tested and tried when it comes to my children. I’m so worried about my children all day every day; all night every night. It seems like they are being so rebellious all at one time. I mean I was literally falling to pieces worrying about them. Second guessing my parenting. Just praying for God to help me...just tell me what I need to do Lord…you know? I mean to the point of just being exhausted - too tired to do anything. Always in tears because I was in fear of something happening to my children. Literally driving myself insane. I see them being faced with some of the same giants I faced…yes, at their age. Wanting them to know how to turn to God. Wanting and desiring so much for God to just grab a hold of their hearts that they will have a mind to serve Him. If they would just know God, have faith in God, and serve God, I know I won’t have to worry so much. I’ve been standing on Proverbs 22:6 "Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” – Proverbs 11:21 “Though hand join in hand, the wicked shall not be unpunished: but the seed of the righteous shall be delivered” Joshua 24:15 “And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord” Acts 16:10 “And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house”. I could go on, but yall know what I mean. Those scriptures would always calm me down; comfort me; encourage me. Then when I saw the enemy really attacking my children, and I know the devil is after them, the fear returned and those scriptures did NOTHING for me. I mean absolutely nothing. So as I was studying, I got a revelation on something I had always wondered about. When Abraham took Isaac up to the mountain to sacrifice him as an offering unto God as God had instructed him to do, Isaac asked him where the lamb for the sacrifice was. Abraham told him that God would provide the lamb Himself. Ok cool. Abraham built the altar, laid the wood, bound Isaac up and laid him on the altar. He stretched his hand, with the knife to kill Isaac. Oooookaaaaaaaaay. Now Isaac is NOT a baby. He knew full well what was going on and didn’t say a thing. He didn’t ask questions, he didn’t struggle…NOTHING! WHY?! If that had been me, I would’ve been like, “Daddy, you done lost your mind. I don’t think so. You not about to bound me up and put me up on nothing. You said God was going to provide the lamb for Himself so He might as well provide it. Because I ain’t the one. You not about to sacrifice me. You get up there. Because I'm outta here! ” He would’ve had to catch me that day. And that’s just keeping it 100. I’ve always wondered why Isaac never said anything. I was like he must really have faith in Abraham. I do think he had faith in Abraham, but I think he had just as much faith in God as Abraham did. So in a sense, he had faith in the faith that Abraham had in God – or should I say he had faith in the faith of the God of Abraham…does that make sense? God knew what his reaction would be. Abraham’s faith was not only tested; but so was Isaac’s BECAUSE of the promise, which was Isaac, God made to Abraham. God knew Isaac would have the faith of his father and that’s why I believe He asked Abraham to sacrifice Isaac. How do I know? Genesis 18:19 “For I know him [Abraham], that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the Lord, to do justice and judgment; that the Lord may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him”. God knew Abraham would teach and be an example to Isaac on how to live by faith, believe in the Lord and to walk before God, and be thou perfect (Gen 17:1) Knowing that Isaac had that much faith in God because of Genesis 18:19, has really comforted, encouraged and admonished me to dig deeper into the word of God WITH my children. Teaching them and being an example. Isaac needed the Faith Abraham had. Not just because of the sacrifice but because of the call on his life. Everything Abraham had…Isaac needed and it was going to take Abraham to prepare him for it by doing exactly what verse 19 states. So as it was for Abraham for Isaac and the generations after him, so it is for me and my seed and the generations after them. My heart feels so much more and is so full about this, but I’m running out of time. I’ll have to come back and finish.
  5. When it comes to faith, more often times than not, Abraham and Job are the examples of faith in action. Can anyone think of anyone else who exhibited just as much or more faith as these two men? If so, who and why?
  6. Father God I ask you to call forth the financial angels that you have in charge over msmason's life and dispatch them to retrieve the finances you have stored up for him and bring them back to him in Jesus' name. ...It's our job to call in the harvest after God gives the increase... Thanks to a dear friend of mine who shared this with me.
  7. I'm doing well. Thanks for asking. Praying all is well with you as well!
  8. Hi, Dove! It's been a while, huh? Good to hear from you!
  9. Praise the Lord, Saints! I just HAVE to share how good God is with you all. I know you all know Prophetess Juanita Bynum, right? I know you all know about what she went through with her now ex-husband. Well, during the time she was going through it, my thoughts were, "She is going to be so powerful when she gets out of this". I prayed for a long time, when I thought about her, asking God to allow me to sit under her when she came out. I told God I just knew there would be a greater anointing on her life when she came out and I wanted to sit under that anointing. She was in Dothan, Alabama last week and I was able to go sit under that anointing! Oh, my God, I had an awesome time in the Lord. I had my eyes closed when I heard everybody clapping. When I opened my eyes, she was standing behind a table getting ready to speak. All I could do was cry and give God thanks because that night is what I had prayed for!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I've always loved Prophetess Bynum. I have a few of her books and teaching cd's that have blessed me throughout the years. It was such an honor to actually sit under the anointing as the word of God came forth!
  10. I know EXACTLY what you're talking about. I promise you I do! DISAPPOINTED & HURT is how I would always feel. Every time a situation where I thought he was coming 2 church because he said he would but he never showed it would crush my spirit. Like you, I wanted 2 give up. One day after a situaion came up and I was feeling disappointed, God asked, "Do you want him saved for you because you want 2 marry him or do you want him saved for me because I love him?" THAT was a real eye-opener for me. You see, I had to check my motives. Just in case you're wondering, I had to admit my fault and I answered God, "Yes, Lord. Please forgive me." I didn't realize I was doing that but I had been praying a selfish prayer for his salvation. I told God to give me a prayer & a scripture for him because I want to pray His wll for his life. I know this man is an assignment for me but I don't want me to get in the way with what God wants to do in his life. God gave me a specific prayer & scripture for him & that's ALL I pray for him...nothing else. I'm not saying you're doing what I did, but my experience came up in my spirit as I read ur post. It got stronger when I reached where you said you told God "I can still believe for him to come to you, but I think I have to give up the hope that he is the one meant for me." I can't even count the number of times I've said this. Be encouraged and know IT DOES GET BETTER...TRUST ME, I KNOW! I can say JOY IS HERE BECAUSE THE MORNING HAS COME! I'M IN BETTER DAYS!!! He's still not saved but because I only pray what God told/tells me to pray for him I don't get disappointed & I let God be God whether we're meant to be together or not. God has promised me a husband & rest in that & keep moving forward with MY walk, MY relationshi with Him! Amen?
  11. It has become natural for me to pray when I see/hear an emergency vehicle. What an awesome and precious testimony!
  12. Thanks Everyone! This is only the beginning. The best is yet to come. Yes, Connie...I receive that - I've been praying for a double portion of God's Divine Favor...Favor with God and with man to rest on me!!!!!!!!!!! We might as well get ready because God is doing a QUICK WORK with, for, and through His people!
