Happy & Bless Thursday !!! This week actually this whole year of 2018 I seen God’s hand move in my life and family. And what a tremendous pleasure it gives me to glorify and exalt the name of God because he is good. I can attest to that; I have seen his hand move to restore, lift and bless my life and my family.
My first blog post of the series named ” Called with a Purpose” has been published on the blog ; go check it out Blessing within a Curse. I will not be speaking about that; it’s with immense joy and gratitude that I’m going to tell you what happened on sunday. Maybe some of you will not believe me or might think that I’m making up stories but with certainty and with my heart in my hands I tell you the blessing that our household received this last sunday.
Some of you know as I have spoken— well written in the blog that my mother and I and the brethren in christ have been praying for my father and brothers for them to come to God’s path back again. As I posted in the blog post I’m a Warrior , my father had started to rise up in the ministry after being in the backseat for many years. It’s with immense joy that I say that he took the step to reconcile with God on sunday and not only him but my youngest brother and the oldest( the firstborn) who arrived unexpectedly that day to our church from Texas. I could not have imagined nor predicted God’s perfect timing; truthfully I can say that God has been beyond good to me. A word that my pastor brought and spoke to our church was that we needed to start declaring that dried bones needed to come back to life; we needed to start prophesying over our family members; we needed to start declaring that their spiritual lives needed to be resurrected but having faith that it will happen.
I can almost see the comments rolling in; saying that we should not believe that nonsense as it’s not written in the bible anything about that. But your relationship with God cannot be compared to someone else’s. God has given us the authority to cast out demons, to prophesy that the land where we at will be ours; why then is it so difficult to prophesy over the lives of our family members?. I’m a pentecostal gal and will always be and I truly believe that God moves in mysterious and innumerable ways you and I cannot imagine. One verse that summons everything up to me is in Isaiah 55: 8-9;
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways,”
declares the Lord.
“As the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts
As I write this I know this is the first step and that their walk is not going to be easy. Since my father started to rise up in the ministry again; he has been attacked him in different ways. His finger almost got cut off at work; he did not work for almost a week because he needed stitches which meant not much pay for rent. A concrete fell on his knee on the week he had to sing( yes he sings) for the men’s service; this upcoming friday he has to preach and I know the enemy will have something in wait to discourage him from continue to pursue his ministry but I believe that he is covered with the blood of Jesus and no principality nor any spirit that tries to touch him will be able to. As I always say God has call each one of us with a purpose; it depends on us if we let the enemy have control of our lives. We cannot let fear overpower us because fear is not from God; instead we need to pick the armor that God has provided for us and continue moving forward.
I encourage the person who is reading this blog post and you have years of praying for that person that does not want or does not know of God; to never cease praying and declaring them for Christ. There are mysteries in our walk with God; don’t be like everyone else instead learn to listen and discern what is from God and what is not. Ask God and he will let you know. All I know is because God has revealed through his word or through elders. They are more battle ready then the new generation; seek counsel when you feel like quitting because there will be moments when you don’t even want to open your bible nor will you want to bow down and pray. But it’s in that moment that you need to be in your knees seeking God and declaring salvation over that person’s life.
