This past Wednesday, I was hit by the enemy in a way unlike anything before. I know the reason he was able to get past my shield of faith was partly due to my extreme weariness from my varied chronic medical conditions.
My oldest and my youngest daughters encouraged me in the Lord on the phone that evening for hours. My girls repeated back to me what I’ve told them over the years, but to no avail. I just went to bed and wept bitter tears of fear. Why? Because this jab by the enemy, allowed by our Father God to help me grow–like burning off the dross to purify the gold, hit me hard! To shorten this… the very next morning the issue was resolved. I giggle now-but it is no laughing matter when we fail to learn from our Father’s allowed tests. As I praised our Lord Jesus and humbled myself before our Father in heaven as I was extremely saddened by my reaction to this obstacle. I share this because sometimes we still struggle with the flesh we live in. We forget, in moments of unexpected trials/troubles/events, who we are in Christ Jesus and that the Lord God Almighty is our Father. ( rereading Romans 5 and 6 ).
No matter what happens to me in this life… nothing will ever separate me from the love of God. Standing on the solid Rock and claiming the promises of our Father and Lord Jesus. Prayerfully… someone may need this today. ♥ Streim
