THIS is a True story….
My friends in Fla last year were faced with quite the decision when
a hurricane warning came to their area. They work at a trailer park
and began to receive warnings about a big storm (Irma). They are
prayer warriors and follow God’s will for their lives, no holds barred.
At some point as the threat was increasing, some officals came, and
said there is a mandatory evacuation. My friends and the persons at
the park were told they needed to leave, or they would die.
The saints would not be moved and stood their ground, even asking
the Lord the power would not go out. As the wall of the hurricane
came barrelling toward them, they prayed and put their hope and trust
in God. Not only were they not destroyed, and no lives were lost-but
the power did not go out.
Many did comply with the evacuation but a few did not.
to his word once again prevailed “in the eye of the storm.”
(Shared with permission)- It was on my heart to share this testimony
about how God came through in a situation that was life or death. There
was very minimal damage to the park, and can we just give a shout of
glory for people who trust God, stand their ground and pray? LG
Halleluiah! Glory to God! we praise you Father for your wonderful works!
Psalm 107: 30-32
He calms the storm,
So that its waves are still.
Then they are glad because they are quiet;
So He guides them to their desired haven.
Good Morning! God has something great for us today! (Let’s pray)
Father I ask you in Jesus’ name. Please get me closer to you! Help me hear from you! Please cause me to have that “relationship” that everyone is always talking about, with you Father…..In Jesus’ name we pray. amen”
In Timothy 1 Paul says (to Timothy) “FIRST of all…” Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men…..” 1 Timothy 1:1
I have asked the Lord for years now, cause me to do thy will, cause me to say what you want me to say, cause me to do my part, and when I get to heaven, I want you to say, ‘Well done.”
I see that the plan of How-To-build-wisely is threaded all through the old and new testament. As I sought on how to build he let me know “FIRST” Is your prayer life.
When we pray about (all things) we are choosing the pearl of great price (God’s wisdom) over our own. I know a lot of people say make “sure” It’s in the bible, but ….
One time my husband was asking God to speak to him and he was touched to add transmission fluid while he was out of town. It was low, and no indicator light came on to tell him.
He said “I”m so glad the Lord showed me that!”. He was seeking really hard for God to “speak to him.” and I know we all wonder, will he tell me great things today? Maybe I”ll write another book of the bible (like Daniel, or Isaiah!).
And tell me……WHERE in the Word of God is the word tranmission Or even “transmission fluid?”” Not there! Did he get deceived, I wonder? 🤨🤓
Surely as we pray, we do not leave ourselves off the list. Every week I see answers to prayer (every week!!!) Why? Because I pray every week! Do I think I’m too stupid to make decisions without God? Can’t I just “function” without him?
Sure I can (to some degree) but see now doing it all myself would be that “wood, hay or stubble” he was talking about. it’s the easy way, and seems like less trouble, takes less time.
isn’t that why the pig chose the straw house? It was easier?
