Yesterday, I was having my devotions and the Holy Spirit told me to write down ALL the answers to prayers as quickly as I can to miss none concerning everything about the Orphanage!
Here is what happened yesterday: I was attached many times yesterday as the Devil did his best to defeat me in every area possible which did lead me to a headache at the end of my work day but did not get me from standing in the promises and praising God. The prayers and hopes follow:
1. I received a phone call asking me if I would be interested in speaking to one of the largest and fastest growing Churches in the nation. I said that I would be interested and spoke about the Orphanage and Faith in answered prayers. The church size was at 10,000 the last I knew. He said I will be receiving a phone call from the Senior Pastor who would be asking me to speak.
2. I found out from my Mom's best friend still living, that the person who I know that started an orphanage in Africa is not who I thought....be even better.....it is her older sister who I went to school with and church too!! Today, she will be giving me her telephone number so I can get advise to learn what to do and what not to do when opening the orphanage in Brazil!!!
3. I prayed that God would direct wisdom towards me and a couple others that are directly and indirectly involved in starting up this Orphanage that He would help them in some difficult decisions concerning a man who we thought was stealing from one of them ....and they fo5. und out yesterday that he is.....and help them to be "as wise as a serpent and as gentle as a dove." The peace of God came over them and they kept their mouth from sinning and their heart sank in unbelief as they process forward on dealing with him to put his out of his position. Praises to God came from their lips during the ordeal. Satan did not win.
4. The Lord gave me the scriptures that went along with the Holy Spirit's communication to me....remember God's dealings with George Muller....wait on the Lord no matter what to supply for all the needs about this orphanage! And then He gave me Psalm 27:14, "Wait on the Lord..."!!!
You see....I put my house in order, asked God to forgive me of all my sins and downfalls, and moved forward on His promises. Being a pillar means not living for oneself but living on the cross for the glory of God. As soon as I did those things I became a fresh target for Lucifer to go after, and I opened myself to blessings from God!! Living for God is better than living for self!
