Dear Doves,There is something I want to share with you.I have been having trouble in my walk with the Lord. I prayed, cried, praised, got down on knees, stomach, fasted and still was getting no answer from the Lord. I felt just awful wondering what I was doing wrong or what was wrong with me.About a week ago as I am going through my e-mail I am reading one of David Wilkersons letters, this is what I was reading:UNBELIEF SHUTS OFF INTIMACY WITH GOD!
"But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God
must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek
Him" (Hebrews 11:6).
All the praying in the world will not do you any good unless you mix it with
faith! You can fast and pray for three days or three weeks, but without faith,
you will not please God. All your hours in prayer, all your petitions, all your
"coming to Him" will profit you nothing unless your heart is anchored in
"Let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of
the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he
will receive anything from the Lord" (James 1:6-7).
If you are spending two hours with God and yet never believe Him to answer you,
you are embarrassing Him for two hours! It may make you feel good or feel holy
but in reality you are wasting time! You are giving God two hours of unbelief
I know Christians who say they pray daily, often weeping before the Lord, yet
nothing happens. They remain heavyhearted and depressed. Their lives are always
in turmoil, all because they have embarrassed the Lord by coming into His
presence not fully persuaded He will do what He promised!
"Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that
you receive them, and you will have them" (Mark 11:24).
"And all things, whatever you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive"
Many of God’s people live as spiritual paupers because something happened
that made them question God’s love. They say, "How can I trust God when I
don’t understand why He would allow such a thing to happen to me?"
There is no human answer to their confusion. But God knows the end from the
beginning and only when we are in heaven will we understand why some of these
winds and waves have tossed us and why God allowed it all.
Isaiah gave an answer and I believe it is all we need to know for now: "Can a
woman forget her nursing child, and not have compassion on the son of her
womb?... Yet I will not forget you. See, I have inscribed you on the palms of
My hands" (Isaiah 49:15-16).
God has given us His Word: "You are My child. You are written in the palm of
My hand so trust Me!"I knew as soon as I read this I knew in my heart what was wrong. My "faith" and "trust" in the Lord, that's what was wrong. I had not been truly having faith and trusting Him as I should have been.That night as I was saying my prayers, got done and was looking at the paper I printed out. "I said Lord, now I see, now I understand what you are telling me".All of the sudden, I just closed my eyes and we were talking in my mind, almost as if I was sitting down talking to you face to face. (I tested the voice that spoke to me)Not once did I have to say a word aloud.This is some things He said:He wanted me so much to have faith in Him,, to put my trust in Him,, he knew my past hurts and told me, He would never hurt or betray me as people have, that I could trust Him, that He would never leave me or forsake me (He would quote scripture to me as we talked) He also said about wooing me as a Bride,,, I was like really?! Really?! He said yes. There is more but will skip to the end,,,I asked him about the "Rapture" if he was coming soon. He asked me, "What does my Word say"? I said, well , it says you are. He let me know that was the answer, that He was coming soon.And last but not least I asked: Is there anything I should say or tell anyone for you?He said, Tell people I am coming soon! Repent! Before the door closes!These are the exact words I was told!------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------I have let family know what was said as we talked and others, now I am posting it here for ya'll.It even scares me to write about it, because NOONE wants to say something that the Lord said, that He didn't you know.But I know what I heard! I know what I felt,,, I felt at peace as we talked, He would quote scripture back to me to let me know it was Him. Loving , Kind,, very much wanted me to put my full faith and trust in Him. For me to know I could trust Him, He said His promises are True and He does not lie and for me not to be afraid. (I have many fears) (2 Tim.1:7)So now I stand on trust and faith scripture. I just don't want a little trust or faith,,, I want alot!!!! I know He is coming soon! I want to be prepared and ready!! I am very thankful He talked to me. I desire a very close relationship with Him!May God bless each of us and help us prepare for His coming!Waiting for Him,ysiC,Christina
