Prove Me Now .... A Spiritual Personal Journal #38
This morning I was in prayer and the Holy Spirit instructed me to pray about my difficulties!!! So I took my problems to God and the Holy Spirit directed me to pray about what I am facing Today only. So I did and then I proceeded to get ready for work.
Yesterday, I paid my niece the rent she now required for my bedroom (she needs the money) and I was now relieved of our former agreement to take care of the house and kids in exchange for living there. Last night it rained a lot everywhere in this area. As I was opening up the door to go to the office, I noticed that the basement was entirely flooded with about 8 inches of water. This basement was water proof and I have never seen it get any water before. So I awoke my niece and her boyfriend to the situation. Then left to go to work.
I thought about how God arranged to make me feel uncomfortable with leaving my stuff in the basement due to her boyfriend's stealing from others including his own mother. Had my boxes been downstairs, I would have lost family photos and religious books and Bibles. God had seen fit to relieve me of my duties at the house days ago, protect my stuff which is in storage, and bless me.
Now here is the interesting thing....there was some underhanded dealings going on concerning money and water recently. Now water has caused damage and a lot more money cost than the previous underhanded dealings. I always told my niece that money received ill gotten will go through your fingers like water and you will have nothing for it. Here it is....the money in her hand will now go out of her hand and more out of her purse. She remembers I always preach this......always.
God curses the sinners that refuse to walk in His ways when they know the Gospel and she knows that God hates her....that what she keeps telling me. Nothing goes right for her. Well....she was raised with godly grandparents almost every weekend and she know she is doing wrong.
It just dawned on me....pray again about her salvation.
God is working for us.....a lot of times we just do not know how much HE is blessing us. And He is blessing us....even when it seems to be bad.....God is loving us!
Praise God that He puts up with us complaining and still loves us. Praise God that He continues to guide us and perfect us and does not throw us away when we desire the things that are not going to be good for us. Praise God that Jesus is there praying for us AND that the Holy Spirit is helping us to pray. God is Good ALL the time!!!
I am humbled by the now revealing of why things happened as they did to me. God was loving me and I had no idea how He was protecting me.....but He was!!! I love you God. And I thank you.
