    Then Satan answered Yahweh, and said, 'Does Job fear God for nothing? Haven't you made a hedge around him, and around his house, and around all that he has, on every side? You have blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land. But put forth your hand now, and touch all t...

  • Don't lay in wait, wicked man, against the habitation of the righteous. Don't destroy his resting-place: For a righteous man falls seven times, and rises up again; But the wicked are overthrown by calamity. Proverbs 24:15 WEB

    Your journey ends when you will no longer get up. Many times in my life, I began to feel that I had let God down, made the wrong decision, and wrecked His plan for my life. Then when I finally fell on my face before God, repented, and poured out my heart to the Lord in prayer, He would respond: 'Ok, now pull yourself together and let's get back to work.'

    God did not dwell on my past sins or guilt. I simply repented and was moving forward again. He knows that our life is but a breath here and He wants to make the most of it. We cannot change the past. We can only learn from it, and do better next time. So when you stumble, say you're sorry, repent, turn away from the bad, and move forward with your life.

    When I begin to feel like I have lost my way, and I don't know where to turn. I go into a room, shut the door, and lay on my face in prayer until His presence comes. It may take a couple of hours, but eventually a rhema (spoken) word comes and it brings new direction and a fresh vision, for a word from God changes everything.

    There is no replacement for spending quiet time in prayer and listening, for He said 'My sheep hear My voice.' I know there is never enough time, but everyone has twenty-four hours in their day and we spend it on what we think is important. Give God a couple of them and you will not regret it. Try FaceTime, you may like it.

    God has such a beautiful plan for your life, but we all stumble at some point along the way. All of us do. When we do, God waits patiently for us to get back up. If you are down today know that God is waiting for you to take His hand once again. When you do, He will pull you back up to your feet.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, please draw me to You. Ignite a desire inside of me to seek Your face like never before. Cover me with Your presence and peace, give me a fresh vision today, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

I have stumbled and backslid many times along the course of my learning to walk in His ways. He has taken these times of my failings and He is using them for me to pour out encouragement in the books I have written and continue to write. This verse has become the path I walk on.

Luke 22:31-32 (NIV)

31 “Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift all of you as wheat. 32 But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned back, strengthen your brothers.”

As Peter , my Savior has told me that now that I have turned back, I must use what I have learned to strengthen my brothers and sisters. There is no condemnation in Christ, He will use whatever sifting we have been through to lift up others who are being sifted. This is why there is such power in our personal testimonies, for our stories tell of His constant love, compassion and desire for relationship with His children. They tell us that we always can repent, return and be welcomed back home, no matter what we have done or how long we have been gone. We only need to return.
