Haven’t been able to manage funds well living on small SS stipend. So get by but disciplined by circumstance. Was talking to a nephew said something about wealth prosperity gospel and such didn’t think much about it but may have been contrary to biblical instruction even not what I believe. Little while later the Lord said strongly “Your not ready” thought wonder what that meant demotion or delay or being removed from an assignment and such laid back licking my wounds, said Lord you knew this when you gave that assignment He said “I did” that’s what I told the Lord and saw God’s Hand come down and pick up clock radio beside bed and take it to heaven. Thought Good God what did that mean, am I going home early?!!
Lots of times don’t get answers it is at this moment, telling this to myself too” you don’t pout you don’t get petulant you SELAH pause and meditate on it and look at it and try to discern from your KNOWER what it meant, you have to do this quick as sometimes the window for discernment is brief, at least for me it is.
| I Hear His Whisper… “I close doors for you.” I will never disappoint you. Remember how I have helped you and held you in the past? I would not allow your enemies to conquer you.|
I broke through the clouds of despair and rescued you. I will not disappoint you. You are often disappointed when I close a door.
Yet the door I close keeps you from making the wrong decision and taking the wrong path. Never lose heart when you see that I have shut a door.
I open doors that no man can close, and I close doors that no man can open. Can you praise me when I close a door as well as when I open a door? Psalm 18:30-31 The Passion Translation
What a God you are! Your path for me has been perfect!
All your promises have proven true.
What a secure shelter for all those
who turn to hide themselves in you!
You are the wrap-around God giving grace to me.
Could there be any other god like you?
You are the only God to be worshiped,
for there is not a more secure foundation
to build my life upon than you.
That was a prophetic word that came in weekly email from Passion Translation team may have been Brian Simmons or someone on team that gave that Word.
When he opens doors, no one will be able to close them; when he closes doors, no one will be able to open them. And I will place on his shoulder the key of the house of David. He shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open. I will place on his shoulder the key of the house of David.
We must persevere and humble ourselves in times like this humble ourselves so the Lord won’t have to humble, being humbled by the Lord is not a pleasant process, but produces good fruit if you will be learned by the process. God bless agape philio in Christ JRR
