Promises

My best hatI promise that this next week I’ll have a book review on Friday. Instead of reading fiction I’ve been attending to another part of my life. As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve been watching videos by people who are keeping close track of world events and relating them to end times prophesy. The result is that I’ve gone deeper into scripture to read for myself, again, the Biblical prophesies particularly about the end times.

I’ve also been watching other videos about the miraculous things that God does in people’s lives. That has prompted  in me a desire to grow spiritually again. It is hard to explain, but, like seeing the light just around the corner I can see a new level of closeness with God, for me, just around the corner, so to speak.

I’ve been given the command to love His people. But, I’ve not had a specific vehicle to do that for several years. I think that is going to change soon. Satan must think so too because he’s been attacking me recently in ways that most people would just shrug off, not realizing it is a spiritual thing. However, I recognize the source.

Many years ago my husband had a dream in which we were ministering in the aftermath of some battle and in it he said I was going around healing the injured by the Holy Spirit. I’ve pondered that in my heart these many years and often wondered if God will use me as a vessel to do that. I have not dared to ask for Him to  use me in that way, though. Who knows, only God, that He may impart that gift to me in coming times. If things in this world get bad enough as we move closer to to the end time the gift of healing might be the only way people will receive healing because medical care is unavailable.  The Venezuelan people could use people right now to whom God imparts the gift of healing. I’m sure that is not the only place on the planet either. My heart aches for the world. There is so much suffering, violence, natural disasters, turmoil and chaos at this time in our history. This may have always been so, but, today it seems to be much more prevalent and widespread.

I have to rely upon God’s promises to His people. Otherwise my own spirit would fail. Seeing the awful things happening would discourage me beyond despair, if there is anything worse than despair. But God has promised that He would be with us always even to the end of the age. Yehovah strengthens me and gives me peace. He is our healer, He is our salvation, He is our hope. I desire to serve Him and am asking for His guidance in what I can do to for His service. God does not desire that any should parish and it grieves Him that the children He created reject Him, reject Yeshua His only begotten Son whom He sent to be the sacrifice for the sins of all mankind. I love my Creator God, and He loves me, He loves all of creation, the sin of the world grieves Him, knowing that there are many who reject His plan for overcoming sin and separation from Him. Imagine your own child rejecting you and refusing to have you in their life. I just can’t because I have a close loving family. That is what God wants, a close loving relationship with all His children. I want to do my part to bring His children back into His loving arms.

So, that is what is going on in my life, that is the reason I’ve not been reading fiction recently. But, I promise I’ll read something this week, I’ve already chosen the book, and I’ll have a review this coming Friday. Promise!

Blessings!

About grandmapeachy

I am a retired grandmother and amateur quilter. Generally I do not discuss religion and politics with people other than my family and even then I do more listening than talking. Because I dislike confrontation this blog is a way for me to express opinions that I hold on these and other issues without having to delve into controversial discussions with others who may not agree with me. I am also an avid supporter of indie authors. There are a lot of great books that are not available through traditional publishing and I believe that these stories need to be brought to the attention of the reading public.

    Beautiful article! It’s nice to see like-minded Christians speaking their hearts in times when Christian persecution in the U.S. is becoming a real threat. I have no doubt we are most definitely living in the end times. Our God is long suffering, not wanting any to perish (2 Peter 3:9), but I can imagine he will allow this world to continue on its downward spiral only so much longer. I’m listening fervently for the trumpet sound like I never have been before. Come, Lord Jesus, come.
