He Whispers

Sometimes we are expecting God to respond to us in big ways when it is just a whisper that resounds.

He whispers.

Many times we have issues that comes before us and we just don’t know what to do. We do not know what to say or how to react. That’s when it’s time to be still.

Job 3:13, 24-26 NKJV
For now I would have lain still and been quiet, I would have been asleep; Then I would have been at rest For my sighing comes before I eat, And my groanings pour out like water. For the thing I greatly feared has come upon me, And what I dreaded has happened to me. I am not at ease, nor am I quiet; I have no rest, for trouble comes.”

This portion of scripture I used is from the Book of Job when he deplored his birth. It stood out for reasons that we all can relate to. Misery besets us. We are encamped with multiple feelings longing for peace and understanding.

In Christ alone our hope is found. Our peace is met. Our storms settle.

Mark 4:39 NKJV
Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm.

Sharing a bit of my own storm, my mind had been flooded and my heart raged like a tumultuous sea a few nights ago. I had just gotten home and was ready to throw myself under the sheets in my bed and call the night quits. I couldn’t though. Spent some time with my family and called myself tidying up a bit downstairs before I retrieved to my room.

Actually, I was merely buying time to gain some peace in my heart. Just going to bed was not going to change anything. So I went into the computer room to sit in the dark. Before I knew it, I heard Him whisper. He was calling out to me through the wind which strummed my heart with the beautiful melody that played on my wind chime right outside the window.

A slight grin came upon my face. My heart leaped with joy as I felt the broken pieces coming back together in the way that He saw fit.

He whispered me to me! His love poured out and lavished me and comforted unlike no other. It was in my stillness that I heard Him calling out to me.

Dear reader, are you listening for the whisper from the Lord Almighty or are you expecting a loud reply regarding your thoughts and prayers? I encourage you to listen for the small and still voice, a whisper in the wind, chirping birds in a tree or simply a spoken word in due season even from the least way you’d think to get hope and comfort. He is our shelter and our refuge no matter what the situation looks like. Be still and wait……

Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth! The Lord of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah (Psalms 46:10-11 NKJV)

Dial 1-888- God- Help

20120103-080919.jpg

Today is a brand new day. Leave yesterday where it belongs and move forward! If you woke up this morning with premeditated thoughts of how bad your day is going to be for whatever reason, change your thought process. It’s not too late to make the wrongs right.

Call upon the name of the Lord and submit your cares and concerns before him. Nothing is too big or too complicated that He cannot fix it. Now don’t go looking in the phone book for the number because you won’t find it there! You will find every Tom, Dick, Jane and Sally in the yellow pages with businesses to help you with everything but what you really need. Only God Himself can provide services beyond man’s capabilities.

Tomorrow has enough worries of its own so live today with purpose. Make it your business to put your best foot forward, speak with kindness and treat others with the respect as if God was standing visibly right next to you.

God loves you! Remember that. If you have breath in you, this day wasn’t given to you to be miserable. Choose how you want your day to go. Make up in your mind how you will let today affect you. It may not be great, but having the right attitude until things look brighter makes the wait worth while.

If you need to go into your prayer closet, GO! If you have a minute to spare ( you know you do! ) between your thoughts and what is about to come out your mouth and it’s not positive, GO! Make that call….. The Lord is waiting to hear from you.

( I’m sure He’s up to date on technology, so you can send text messages too. They are free of charge! Smile! You ARE His favorite child ya know. ) God stays awake 24/7 and answers in all languages and time zones. NO EXCUSE!

Standing In the Gap

20111026-205234.jpg

Dear Lord,

Someone is in need of Your presence right now. I don’t know who I’m praying for but my heart and spirit is calling me to intercede on their behalf…. to stand in the gap. I cry out to You to come rescue them in their time of need. Cover them with Your love, be a hedge of protection around them, The Rock, The Fortress, a place of refuge, the mother, father, sister, brother, the friend, Comforter, their everything that they need to make it through.

Hear my plea O Lord for tears are present. Hurt, pain and grief has struck their soul, doubting and wondering how they will make it. Most Holy One, I know you can make a way out of no way. Let them know that You are with them. Your presence is near. You have not forsaken them. I plead the blood of the Lamb, I rebuke those negative spirits. They have no choice but to flee in the name of Jesus.

Thank You for hearing my prayers. My love is with those who seek You even if they are unaware that they need to call on You. Bless them and keep them safe in Your arms. Peace be still. This storm soon shall pass. In Your everlasting Name I pray. Amen.

In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. (Romans 8:26 NIV)

The Lord is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him. (Lamentations 3:25 ESV)
