If it were not for….

I have been wanting to write a prayer since yesterday. This morning I woke up and thought of you all. If you don’t see me or hear me know this, I have kingdom business on my mind.

I wanted to say that whatever situation we are going through God is already at work in it. We really need to let the scriptures do what they say they will do in times of need and struggle. Cast all our cares on him because he cares for us. We have just come through Matthew and it ends with our Father’s agony on the cross. This is what he did for us so we can be close to him, so that we can be set free of the chains, the pain, the losses. On Friday during lunch , I was overwhelmed with the loss of my eldest daughter – the memory of her as a child and us on the park – it just came upon me. I was in public so I didn’t let the tears fall, but I prayed to Father and He remembers me, all our yesterdays and my pain. Sometimes it looks like we are on our own carrying whatever we are carrying, but that is a lie of the enemy. He is an ever present help in the time of need. Just curl up in his arms and let him wrap his love around you. You are not alone.

The scripture by David often comes to mind, I have been young and old yet, I have never seen the righteous forsaken nor their seed begging bread. This is what I prayed Friday from the depths of my heart. I can say (and have prayed a number of times through the years) , ‘if it were not for the Lord who was on our side then THEY (the soothsayers, the haters, those that speak against us) would have swallowed us alive. Then the waters would have overwhelmed us. The stream would have swept over our soul. But we can say (as David does in Psalms 124)

“Blessed be the Lord who has not given us as a prey to their teeth, our souls has escaped as a bird form the snare of the fowler”

I want to declare over you today, that the shame is broken and we have escaped… praise be to God!!!! Your help, my help, our help…… is in the name of the LORD, who has made heaven and earth.

Fathers richest blessing

See some of you at church
