I was sent an assignment by translations team where i came across the title of one of the chapters in LAL, Chapter 8 “You’re Being Set-Up” and it immediately got my attention. I have to be honest, i am not doing my lessons diligently and stopped at course 2, RRR but i have read some parts of the FAL when i felt lead by the Lord. I oftentimes feel that because of my disobedience to him, by not doing my lessons religiously, when the enemy attacks, i feel very weak and hopeless. I already asked my beloved to deliver me from this and He assured me, consistently, that right now, i am in a place of resting in Him because i have grown weary of everything that i had struggled doing before.
After i finished my latest assignment today, i was lead by Him to read this particular chapter when i thought to myself, “i probably should read this since it relates to what i had gone through recently” when in fact, it was just the opposite of what i was expecting! This chapter in LAL made me realize that HE is the one who is behind all these adversities in my life. I know from hearing on the tapes that the enemy cannot sift and touch me without His permission, but it still has been a constant battle in my mind whenever I experience attacks or set-ups. This battle is perfectly orchestrated by HIM and the victory and outcome is already in HIS hands. What i do, during this testing is what He is looking for so that He can bless me with the Promises He had given me already. Brides, it is very important to take every thought captive because most of my weakness and fears came from my mind when i should be looking at what my heart is telling me to do all along, “BE STILL AND KNOW THAT HE IS GOD”. HE is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow and He is the SAME God who had made everything that surrounds me.
Isaiah 45:7 The One forming light and creating darkness, Causing well-being and creating calamity; I am the Lord who does all these.
His Grace is sufficient for me and He already knows the destination of my journey. I believe, that delays in my RJ are mainly caused by my stubbornness in letting Him do what needs to be done. The moment i realized this, i look very much forward to every adversity that will come my way as a disguise for the blessings He is about to shower me. Sometimes, i feel that HIS promises are too big that it made me forget WHO HE IS. I fail, again and again, but with this failing, are lessons i have learned and deeper relationship formed with my HH. I love Him so much and only He alone can do all of these changes in me.
In my Verse for today, He told me “There will be no more night. They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for the Lord God will give them light. And they will reign for ever and ever.” Revelation 22:5-6 NIV. Every day, i am in awe of HIS love for me and How he constantly reminds me that He is there to take care of everything while i rest soundly beside Him. And today, every day, i WILL always choose to TRUST Him and surrender to Him.
John 16:33 NIV These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.”
