It has been a couple of days since I posted on my blog. Since those days a lot of good and bad things have happened; maybe these days are helping me and my family be stronger and rely on God more.
On Friday night we had night watch service at our church and God spoke through my preaching and the preaching of another sister. How many of us are so arrogant that we forget that from dust we were created and to dust we will go back. Something that resonated deep within me as a few years back I was that type of person. God has molded my character a lot since then but I still need to be molded more. Arrogant people are so hypocritical of every single thing but they never see theirs own flaws. One example that we can find is Jonah; when God decide after all not to destroy Nineveh after they repented. He was filled with anger because God changed his mind but he was not able to see his own shortcomings. But that is not what I will be speaking about this night; How can we defeat giants?
Last blog post I wrote about Jael the wife of Heber the kenite. How God used her to bring the rupture in King Jabins ruling. One thing that I can attest to with certainty is that when we preach our words compromise us. We are tested to see if what we preach we are able to live it. I told you guys that God was and still is doing wonderful things in our lives; my parents were blessed with the opportunity of buying their own home. It’s something that has been asked for; for a long time. Our faith has been tested to see in different aspects and the biggest hit that we receive was this Saturday.
The owner of the house where we have lived for 9 years; has suddenly decided to kick us out giving us a notice of only a month. Did we expect it? The answer is no we did not; however we know that God is control. He opened doors that were locked for my parents; and he allowed this to happen to test our faith in him. The Bible is pretty clear in the saying that not only from bread will man live. We christian need to rely foremost in God; everything that has happened in this couple of weeks it’s according to the will of God. My pastor in today’s preaching spoke in 1. Kings 17; where Elijah declared the word of drought for Israel given by God.
“Get away from here and turn eastward, and hide by the Brook Cherith, which flows into the Jordan. And it will be that you shall drink from the brook, and I have commanded the ravens to feed you there.””
I Kings 17:3-4
The word says that he was fed by ravens during day and night until the brook dried up and later on; he was sent to the widow that only had a little bit of flour and a little of oil. The situation or trials needs to get worse before getting better. There has to be pain, hopelessness and fear before the blessing is able to come. Right at this moment we are in the unknown; I do not know where to start but the first thing that I did was ; I gave this unto the Lord. He will guide every step of the way just as he guided Elijah. My only resources at this moment are my knees, my mouth and the word. The word will sustain me and nurture my faith, my mouth will give praises for God’s blessings that are on the way and my knees will seek his voice for guidance in for every step of this situation.
P.S. On Tuesday I will be posting the third post in the series” Called with a purpose” don’t forget to stay tuned 🗣🗣🗣🗣and remember that in the midst of everything God is there🕊 After all his is Jehovah Jireh and Jehovah Nissi⚔️🗡➕
