Some people don’t want to be healed or happy. They love to have pity parties because they love the attention they bring. I had someone call me for prayer one day. I began to pray and while I was praying, this person was talking to people in the background, not even listening to me pray so that they could agree with me or hear what I was praying for. Holy Spirit said stop they don't want to be healed. Then I understood why Jesus asked the lame man at the pool of Bethesda, "Do you want to be made whole?" (John 5: 5-9) .
9 Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. 10 For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up! 11 Again, if two lie together, they keep warm, but how can one keep warm alone? 12 And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken. -- Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 (ESV)
“And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. And those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the sky above; and those who turn many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever.” ̶ Daniel 12:2-3 ESV
Yesterday I attended my former Co-Pastor Willie Forts' funeral. The funeral was an awesome celebration of the life of a great Spiritual Father, Mentor, Counselor, Intercessor, and Mechanic... This is who Pastor Willie Forts was to me. I was good until they rolled his body out and I went back to the day when they rolled my daughter out and the tears began to flow. The reason why Pastor Willie’s and my daughter’s funeral was a celebration is because they were saved and lived a life for the Lord God!
In Ezekiel chapter 37 the Spirit of God took Ezekiel to a valley filled with dry bones, and asked him, “Son of man, can these dry bones live?” In the natural it didn’t look like any life could bloom in that wasteland of bones, but Ezekiel knew enough about God to know to know that anything is possible with God. So he answered, “O Lord, you know”.
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” - John 10:10
I went through something this week and even though I was okay with the outcome, I was deeply hurt. I felt like several years of my precious life had been wasted. I felt like a failure and a fool, and I was angry. I was now in a city alone. I was shocked and afraid. I sat for hours at my desk crying and wondering what to do. I was 250 miles away from family in Miami and almost 500 miles away from family in Atlanta. I knew I had to get rid of what I was feeling, so I took all those emotions and feelings to the Throne of Grace.
