    Hear, then, the parable of the farmer. When anyone hears the word of the Kingdom, and doesn't understand it, the evil one comes, and snatches away that which has been sown in his heart. Matthew 13:18 WEB.Once praying about something, I felt like I heard a small whisper back from the Lord encouraging...

    No one puts new wine into old wine skins, or else the new wine will burst the skins, and it will be spilled, and the skins will be destroyed. But new wine must be put into fresh wine skins, and both are preserved. Luke 5:37-38 WEB (Paralleled in: Matthew 9:17, Mark 2:22).The most radical change rec...

    Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and had perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marveled. They recognized that they had been with Jesus. Acts 4:13 WEB.The disciples of Jesus were mostly uneducated fishermen, but later people lined the streets hoping that the shado...

Alone In The Quiet

  • Be strong and courageous. Don't be afraid or scared of them; for Yahweh your God himself is who goes with you. He will not fail you nor forsake you. Deuteronomy 31:6 WEB

    We can become so withdrawn sometimes that we begin to feel that it is us against the world. That no one cares or even notices what we are going through, and struggling with. Even in the middle of a crowd, we can feel alone and all the while, God seems silent.

    Yet we are not alone. The Lord tells us repeatedly through scripture to be strong and courageous, just as He told Joshua. We are not to live in fear and dread for He is with us and will never leave, nor forsake us. No one can snatch you out of His hand. When the enemy comes in, like a flood God will raise up a standard against him. An important thing that I have learned is this:

    1) God's silence does not mean His rejection, or that He is mad at you.

    2) God's silence does not mean His rejection, or that He is mad at you.

    3) God's silence does not mean His rejection, or that He is mad at you.

    There are so many times in my life now that when looking back, I thought that I was off the path. That I must be, because I could no longer hear from God. Somewhere I missed a turn, now I was walking alone.

    It always turned out that I was merely on a straight part of the road and that I did not need a course correction at that time. Eventually the next door would open up, He would speak to me again, and I would realize that He had been there the entire time. I merely had to go from point A to point B, and I would not be here, if I had not first been there.

    Be encouraged today, for no matter where you are, you are not alone. For it is the Lord God Almighty who goes with you. When the trouble comes, so will the answer. Keep the Lord first in your life, and all the other things will fall into place. Do not fear what may come, for you will be prepared to face it.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I know that You are here and I choose to believe that all things will work together for good, whether I understand them or not. Walk with me and talk with me today, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

Once more, I can relate...After an intense spiritual experience, God seemed to abandon me for over a year.Now I can look back and realize that He was always with me, even if I didn't sense His presense as before.
