    For I, Yahweh your God, will hold your right hand, saying to you, Don't be afraid; I will help you. Isaiah 41:13 WEBWe have a proverb we live by when performing live music: "If you hit a bad note, hit it good." Yes, it should be "hit it well," but that's the phrase I grew up hearing in South Carolin...

    Because he has set his love on me, therefore I will deliver him. I will set him on high, because he has known my name. He will call on me, and I will answer him. I will be with him in trouble.

The Word Came To Me

  • Jeremiah said, Yahweh's word came to me, saying, Behold, Hanamel the son of Shallum your uncle will come to you, saying, 'Buy my field that is in Anathoth; for the right of redemption is yours to buy it.' So Hanamel my uncle's son came to me in the court of the guard according to Yahweh's word, and said to me, 'Please buy my field that is in Anathoth, which is in the land of Benjamin; for the right of inheritance is yours, and the redemption is yours. Buy it for yourself.' Then I knew that this was Yahweh's word. Jeremiah 32:6 WEB

    The word of the Lord came to Jeremiah and instructed him to buy his cousin's field. Before long, his cousin came to Jeremiah and offered to sell the land to him. Jeremiah the prophet then said, "Then I knew that this was the word of the Lord." Jeremiah bought the field.

    Once while on the last day of a seven-day fast, my wife and I were praying in separate rooms. Just like anyone else on the last day of a fast, we were already planning our lunch and our menu for the rest of the week, maybe the month, when suddenly I felt that we were supposed to fast ten days. I was hungry and silently thought, "That cannot be God, that is the devil!"

    When we came out of our prayer rooms and sat at the table, my wife said, 'I think we are supposed to fast ten days' and like Cain, 'my countenance fell.' I looked at the clock and it was 10:10 on the 10th. The number ten appeared everywhere. We gave in and continued to fast for another three days. The first seven days had been easy, but the last three were very difficult, almost like we were wrestling with something. We were.

    At the end of the ten days, we saw real miracles happen. We went to a family Thanksgiving dinner and it suddenly turned into a prayer meeting. Most of them were out of jail that weekend, so we lined them up and as we prayed for them, they would crumple to the floor in tears. Painful relationships where people had not spoken to each other in years, were mended. It was a major breakthrough.

    When you feel like God may be speaking to you, He will often confirm it with signs around you and and an open door. If that is the case, go for it for the word of the Lord has come to you.

    Prayer: Father I thank You for speaking to me in a way that I understand. Lead me into all that You have for me on this earth. I give You permission to work in my life. Open the doors and I will step through them. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

Amen Pastor Dion. In the past I have heard Him speak to me many times. I only wish I had obeyed all of them. As I have learned to obey without question, I have seen many doors of opportunity and blessing open. I have learned to trust Him no matter what I may "feel", "think" or "fear". He always brings me to something good if I obey.

Thank you, Pastor. I stand in agreement. What a touching testimony of restoration! God bless the Word of the Lord! For He has appointed all things and times as they should be! May I always obey! I have been in self many times, yet I turn my heart to the Lord to soften and beckon and call! Love and peace to you! With thanks!

Powerful!  I use to fast quite often.  Yes, God moved.  I felt strongly about fasting.  As I am older & meds are apart of the picture for me I am concerned to think to do it for not on an empty stomach is it good to take meds.  Any thoughts to add?

You can do Daniel type fasts, fruits, vegetables and such. Meat, cheese and chocolate are great but you will not die without them. We fast all sorts of ways.

Thank you, Dion.  My diet having IBS is close to what you described.  So meat is little but that can be one.  I can let go of chocolate except Ensure which is dark chocolate.  Does this sound right?
