The Best Miracle

In the last two blogs I've been sharing my struggle on giving up control to Jesus.  After I failed Him the first time, I asked for another chance to be directed again but failed the second time, too.

So then when I repented, I asked to be slowly taught on how to follow His spontaneous direction.  I'm fairly good with planned directions but the immediate requests I refused to do until I had thought about it, which meant the opportunities had passed.

For this last week, I've seen people paying for strangers' purchases when they ran short and had people tell me how important this is to do.  The Lord is teaching and helping me to change into a more giving, loving person.

The best miracle is when we let go of our selfish, fearful, angry, worldly, sinful behavior for spiritual growth.  

Holy teaching for spiritual growth is only a prayer away!

Jesus as Lord

On my mission to relinquish control of my life over to Lord Jesus, I'm still struggling.  After I didn't leave my exercise class two weeks ago when the Lord told me, I have asked for forgiveness and repented.

Since then I've asked Him to teach me and try me again.  Well, He did and I failed again.

I was standing behind a woman with two small children at a gas station while she was buying some food but couldn't afford the milk.  The Lord told me to pay for her groceries.

I argued that this was my gas money for the week and refused to follow His direction once again.  Of course after I thought about this and the opportunity had passed, I felt foolish and repented once again.

While working for the Lord, I'm fine with following His structured directions but this spontaneous stuff is a new challenge for me, which I'll eventually overcome with His help.  

Supernatural help is only a prayer away!

Relinquishing Control

One of my greatest challenges for walking the Christian life has been turning over control to Jesus.  As I bring an area into obedience with Christ, another area to work on gets pointed out.

My current challenge is time management, which has been a long struggle.  I think Lord Jesus decides how I spend my time until I get tested and fail.

In morning exercise class, I prayerfully asked what I should do next.  I was told to leave the room now.

I was so surprised that I argued with the Lord on how it would disrupt class, upset the teacher, diminish my workout and was not a good idea.  Then I thought about this for about 15 minutes and realized my foolishness.

So I repented and decided to leave, but then the Lord told me to stay because it was too late.  Supernatural counseling and direction is only a sincere prayer away!

Praying For Strength

When facing problems in my ministry, I need supernatural strength for handling difficult situations.  I especially pray for help with spiritual warfare.

These battles can come in many forms from physical to spiritual.  The hardest to accept have been with humans.

Fighting against spiritual evil I can accept as part of this wicked fallen world.  However, humans that use their free will to control others with their irrational, incomprehensible screaming anger pushes my buttons.

With this battle, I pray for the supernatural strength to stay calm and peaceful.  

This strength and peace from our Lord Jesus Christ is only a prayer away!

Supernatural Help

As an employee of the Lord, I always have supernatural help.  He told me years ago when I started that he would never leave me nor forsake me.

Quite often, I'm dealing with frustrating situations because people think irrationally and follow their own standards.  While I usually point out Christ's logical guidelines for life, I find praying for supernatural help works best.

Sometimes I can offer words of advice that help and sometimes the Lord gives him or her a supernatural experience later.  One person met a stranger with a message from the Lord confirming what I said.

Other people have experienced healing, being used by the Lord, answers to questions, directions for their lives, peace, etc.  

Supernatural help is only a prayer away!
