Faith Journey Now

As I said this is the seventh blog, the Lord has told me to start and I think it may be the most important right now. Like many of you, I am on a wilderness journey and in this blog He is revealing how my journey looks. Hopefully, it will be an encouragement.

As I look back over the year, I’m relieved that those times have past and looking back they don’t seem that hard. Maybe that is the point of those times that stretch you. The next time you are confronted with them or situations like them, you don’t see it as so hard. It’s the change that comes over us, qualifying us to go on to the next leg of the journey.

Right now I’m in a situation where I’m living with people and they are taking care of me, just like the widow of Zarephath and Elijah. In fact she is a widow friend of mine. A dear friend. One who doesn’t totally understand why I’m going about things this way and isn’t sure this is really the Lord’s will, but she keeps on feeding and housing me. I wonder if anyone else is going through this. I would love to hear from you. I won’t blame you if you’re embarrassed that you are homeless at this time. I know how you feel, but choose to rejoice and praise God, knowing He has a purpose in this and Satan is not winning even though he might be grinning now.

Even with my friend’s care and acceptance I’ve been waking up in the morning struggling to keep myself on an even keel. To not feel like I’ve lost my mind, that Jesus is still with me, that I’m still in the will of the Father. Often I wake speaking in tongues and that’s a stabilizing force.

Today, however, the Lord said to me that I am free. I have the victory already. I’ve got the ball in this game and I can out run Satan because of Christ and get a touchdown and raise my arms in victory. I’m not under, but on top. I’m not beneath, but above. He says He will soon escort me out of this narrow place. He will not disgrace me. My naysayers will not have the last word. He will get the praise and glory. The kingdom will realize a good crop for God of souls saved and Christian’s encouraged. And He is letting me see some of this good crop for Him.

Recently, Holy Spirit said “you have endured the trauma of your change”. And truly I have. That tells me I’ve made it. It harps back to earlier this year, when I told the Lord I needed a full court ‘medical’ team around me in the spirit realm with all He was putting me through. And He said why do you think I have all these angels around you?

Be encouraged saints. The end and joy of the morning, is coming as in Job 42:11 – All his brothers and sisters and everyone who had known him before came and ate with him in his house. They comforted and consoled him over all the trouble the Lord had brought upon him, and each one gave him a piece of silver and a gold ring.”! That’s better than a pat on the back! Folks, be encouraged. Of course we know Job went on to have the Lord bless him so that the latter part of his life was more than the first.
