Through all the trials and tribulations that have come, I can’t help but have a deep appreciation for God, family, friends, and Jesus who is with us each and every step of the way. He said He would never leave nor forsake us.
What I find interesting in Hebrews 13:5 is how the writer says, Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
We have seen the best and worst in people during this current pandemic. Some people are hoarding because a fear of lack has gripped them, and then we have others who are doing everything they can to help people through this time.
We’ve all had to make sacrifices of some sort. My heart goes out to everyone who has lost a loved one to COVID 19. It’s sad no matter what their age.
Jesus said in John 14:18: I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. He sent us the Holy Spirit to comfort, teach, and guide us. Spending more time in the Word and praying for each other should only strengthen us in the days to come, not weaken us.
I keep and will continue to encourage people to forgive those who have hurt or offended them and let the Lord come in and touch their heart. Unforgiveness hurts us more than the person we struggle to forgive. I don’t want to give the devil an open door through unforgiveness to attack my life. Amen.
My prayer for people who are frightened right now, especially the ones who are not born again, is to first give their heart to Jesus and accept Him as their Lord. For the fearful who are saved, I pray that they build up their most holy faith by praying in the Holy Spirit. Then they will have the confidence, the firm trust that Jesus has because He lives in them. Jesus can show them how to be like Him in Mark 4:39 and speak to the mountain, or in this case, the wind and sea: And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. Hallelujah! God is so faithful. Amen.
We already have victory. I know many of you are praying and worshiping. Please don’t stop. If anything, increase your fellowship with God if you can. Let’s encourage one another. Let’s unite in prayer for this great country to bounce back.
Let’s draw our families closer, keeping in touch with them. We don’t want anyone to slip through the cracks, amen.
I want to thank all you praying mamas, grandmas, and spiritual moms for your prayers. Isn’t it something to know that as much as we love our children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren, God loves them more. I’m asking the Lord to bless you all. Have a wonderful and safe Mother’s Day.
In His love,
