Hi there friends! I am back! Seriously... it's been a wonderful year and I am amazed at God's goodness!
My heart has been stirred recently but a person's situation.... I won't go into details just that the person was left with some health issues and told to live with them. How sad is that!
But God! Of course this person is angry and bitter and has full rights to be angry, frustrated and bitter... but I know a better way!
Like Pastor Mark Redner used to tell me... They can't pay you back or make it up to you... Better to let them go and claim double from the Father. Double the healing you need, double the recompense you need... better dreams than the dream life you had before. Only God can make up for man's short falls.
Like someone used to tell me a doctor is only an engineer with two more years of science. If an engineer can make a mistake you better believe a doctor can make a mistake!
Does that make sense? I was praying for this person and my heart broke. Such pain, horrible pain and broken dreams and it was such a mess I didn't know what to pray for first! (That rarely happens to me). I came away with my heart and soul crying out for mercy because honestly I didn't think I would be able to forgive the doctors if those things had happened to me!
Then this morning I was praying again for this person I was wondering what to pray for next and I heard, "Through our God we shall do valiantly! For it is He that treads down our enemies!" (Ps. 108:13)
Holy Spirit said I had a key! With the Father's love in my heart, putting myself in the person's shoes and crying out for mercy I had a key that would move Heaven and Earth. Hallelujah!
I am waiting for the results..... I know what God showed me.... if I won't quit praying and making demands and decreeing promises Holy Spirit brings to my remembrance! He won't quit because "He is forever faithful!" (Psalm 100:5)
So that's my exhortation today... Don't give up on people.... Doctor's do what they can and often fail us... however we have another recourse,,, God! I dare you to pick up where you have given up on someone or some situation. Ask God for a strategy or encouragement to keep pressing on and claim the healing promise (Isa. 53:5, 1Pet. 2:24) or dream (Ps. 37:4) He's shown you!
