♕ Today's Promise: "You will enjoy the fruit of your labor. how joyful and prosperous you will be!" Psalm 128:2
Hello, dear Brides, Each day on this Day, I am amazed at the prayer responses of our Beloved Lord and how faithful He is in all of our lives.. How small we are in the face of so much greatness and wisdom ... the Bible tells me eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
After my trip to Brazil the furnace got very hot in the last few weeks ... I received notice from my landlord because there were 3 rentals overdue, and also I received the same time the Council tax letter ... when I received the letters I could only look to Him and say: “Darling this is a problem for a husband to solve and right now you are my HH and I need You to solve it for me”.
I prayed and trusted. I didn't despair, I just sat and waited for the salvation He would give me, also I learned that as a faithful tithe He will open the windows of heaven with blessings without MEASURES.
The letter that came from the court they said that they would come to my house to collect my belongings for payment of Council tax. On the appointed day I prayed with my friend Sara and sat with the Bible in hand waiting for the enforcement agents. It was scheduled for a Thursday at 6 pm, I waited until 6:40 pm and that's when I praised the Lord for deliverance. On Saturday God provided everything, I could to pay the Council tax.
With great joy I knew that somehow, He would save me from landlord notice.
I Keep being His bride, worshiping His name and hearing His voice, that everything would be resolved. So that you can understand last year because my surgery (let me mention another PR), the Council was helping me but for last 3 months they stopped helping me. One day they send me an email saying that I need to go there to check why help was not coming. So I went there and I showed them the letter from landlord. They told me that “we are going to check and then we send a reply”. After three days for the first miracle the payment to Council tax, in the morning I received an email from the Council that they would help me with the rent payment. The surprise and the miracle came when I opened my account, and the balance was the exact amount of 3 rents overdue... only He could do that, inclined the heart of the Council for me.
I said to Him: Lord I know that You will, I know that You will open the sea, but only this time Can You please open the sea really early? Not at the last moment like the other times? Look, He heard me ... He answered me ... He answered my heart's desire.
Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Psalm 37:4 AKJ
Every day I want to be closer and closer to the best Husband we have. A Man of Value, Kindly, Gentle and never tire of listening to me.
My Beloved, I am grateful for all the benefits that You have done me. Even the tribulations, trials, and tests because it is where I can delight in You, wait for Your action, learn that I can ALL things in Him who strengthens me, that You are my Shepherd and I will not lack anything, that You are the Lord of Armies and my Husband and that You fight for me, even if my father and my mother abandon me You will never forsake me. Because you are not a Man who lies, but You are the Truth that sets free. I love You and thank You for being Your bride.
I’m speechless to explain everything I have lived with the Lord in the past two weeks, but I could see that today I am His and He is mine and I am sick of love!
And have you, my dear friend, discovered Him as your Heavenly Husband? Have you sought Him with all your heart? I encourage you today to speak to Him and ask Him to show you and you will be amazed at all that a HH can do for His bride.
“When my father and my mother forsake me, then the LORD will take me up.” Psalm 27:10
“For thy Maker is thine husband; the LORD of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel” Isaiah 54:5
“Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.” Malachi 3:10
Ministry Note: Witnessing Erica's journey is inspiring for all of us. It is also difficult to not try to interfere and come to her rescue. The week this was going on we all knew, wanted to help, but each time He reminded us it is HE who is her Husband and HE has a plan we are not to get involved in.
Isaiah 55:8–9: “‘For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways,’ declares the Lord. ‘For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.’”
There have been times He has led us to take part in what He was doing, provide when we had no idea of the need at all. As brides, we become more like our Bridegroom—who is a Giver.
This means, as His brides, no matter who we see struggling, we need to stay holding onto His hand as He leads us (Psalm 23:3), we need to listen (Isaiah 30:21) for His still small voice (1 Kings 19:12) just as Erica is doing in utter and complete trust.
John 16:33 (MSG) Jesus answered them, “Do you finally believe? In fact, you’re about to make a run for it—saving your own skins and abandoning me. But I’m not abandoned. The Father is with me. I’ve told you all this so that TRUSTING Me, you will be unshakable and assured, deeply at peace. In this godless world you will continue to experience difficulties. But take heart! I’ve conquered the world.”
