But are you still looking?
Many surprises are only realised in hindsight.
What have you been doing in the last 21 days?
Have you relaxed yet and just chatted to God and told Him everything?
He already knkws it all. But it helps to verbalise things for our own sake.
But dont worry or panic.
You will know soon enough.
He promised a surprise.
Broach the subject with Him.
And see what halpens in the days following.
And dont worry...im in the same situation but on a different level.
Two weeks ago He said simply "Everything will turn around for you very suddenly..but right before it does it will look the opposite...TRUST me at that point and see what I do".
Right now im almost broke...and the sale I was counting on didnt eventuate...and ive had to move..again.
But from past experience its always ALWAYS like this just before a major turnaround.
So...it seems we are both awaiting somethinv awesome.
And as always...right before the promise happens...it always looks the bleakest.
But that way..he gets all the credit..and WE get all the JOY.
Be patient now...and watch....its coming.
And I speak for both of us.
Are you the same bloke who was so kind to me three weeks ago? Your ID number has changed.
I've been praying for you!
The sheer fact that you answered my message must mean God is ready to bless as I honestly didn't think you'd reply. Also I've been really depressed the last couple of weeks and I was questioning my sanity too! Questioning my sanity because I was believing what a stranger told me on a conspiracy site!
God's ways are not our ways.
Let's stay in touch! What time (US) is best to reach out to you? Is this timeframe good or would some other timeframe be more convenient for you?
I'm going to go to bed now but before I fall asleep I'm going to pray a good while for you! I want God to richly bless you!
I'll be looking forward to talking to you soon...I'll check this site tomorrow!
Im back. Im on glp every day from this time. Its 930 am here.
Anyways...what I said yesterday about God about to give me a surrise..well..ya never gonna beleive what happenned just now as I turned up at my workshop. (Im an opal cutter..i cut and polish black opals) anyways...my friend vets back from interstate this morninv and he had a friend with him...who wants to buy just about my entire stock of gems.
And whats more this bloke wants me to cut stones for him too (he is an opal miner) so im gonna have so much work now ill be busy busy busy.
Ive just had to move again too and that used up the last of my funds. I was down to $25.
This arvo when he picks up the stones my wallet will be packed full again.
Just in time to purchase a nice parcel of rough stones thats just came in from the fields.
So to recap...yesterday...broke...trusting...NEEDING a sale very badly.
Today...all sold out...and more raw material coming in to make more and the promise of steady work.
See...just gotta trust.
And I bet your prayers helped too. God wants to show you he is REAL and cares.
When you pray for blessings for others..God then is free to bless you too.
Ive been praying for you as well. And I bet he has something amazing lined up for you.
But the lesson is..PRAYER REALLY WORKS.
And when God says he has a surprise lined up...it will come from a totally unforseen and unexpected source.
That way...HE gets all the credit.
I didnt look for this sale...didnt see it coming.
He lined this up for me for YOUR sake...to make a point.
So im saying a prayer right now for you...that your blessing will just up and drop into your lap in some weird way that could ONLY be done BY God.
Last night before I fell asleep, I asked God to bless you with a good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over!
God certainly answered that prayer for you, didn't He?
I'm so very happy for you!
How did you find God and how long did it take you to realize that He was real?
How long have you been walking with God?
How can you tell when God is talking to you? And how do you know it's His voice and not yours or some other?
Does God often answer your prayers?
Do you live a life full of Peace and Joy?
I'll stick around tonight for awhile if you want me to. I'll check this thread in about 30 minutes.
Gudday. I didnt actually "find" God.
Its more a case of HE found ME.
Ive always known he was real...just an instinct i suppose.
The evolution rubbish didnt add up anyway so my insticts were correct.
At 15 years of age I met Him. I asked Him to show Himself to me.
He did...and much more.
But then I got all confused...I was flooded with Joy and peace and could litterally SEE into the spirit world.
For about two weeks we walked hand in hand..open and continuing conversations...answered questions..it was amazing...until I got confused about something.
Something called "faith".
I asked Him to show me what faith was.
You see...faith is what you need and what you use when you CANNOT SEE...OR FEEL his presence or person.
So...he said "Ok...I will show you by practical application what faith REALLY IS".
And just like that...He vanished.
Gone was the joy...the peace...the fellowship..all of it...gone.
I could see nothing..feel nothing...I was on my own.
Only I wasnt...he was always there. But I could not sense Him.
Thus my lessons on TRUST began.
I ran from church to church trying to re establish the connection I had lost.
To no avail.
So i despair I turned to the world...to drugs...booze..party time.
I thought Id done some horrible sin to make Him withdraw.
I hadnt...All I did was ask probably the most important question ever...WHAT EXACTLY...IS FAITH?
The reason I asked it was I could SEE everything...what NEED of having faith in what you CAN SEE?
So acter a lot of years of trying to find him...giving up...then trying again...then giving up again...over and over...it finally dawned on me.
Faith is TRUST.
Trust HIS WORD...HIS PROMISES.
Despite what you SEE OR FEEL...HIS WORD IS TRUSTWORTHY..HE IS FATHFUL.
Never rely on a "feeling" or what you "see".
Thats how satan tricks people into the supernatural...its all based on feelings and what you see.
Satan can do amazing stuff too.
Thats why it says "IF it were possible...he would decieve even the ELECT".
So about 18 months ago I finally realized what it was all about.
And the REAL peace comes...when REAL TRUST is formed.
Like a child will happily sleep in a car while dad drives.
The child LIFE is in the fathers hands...but the child TRUSTS DAD SO MUCH..that he or she will sleep soundly..even when its raining and storming..as DADDYS AT THE WHEEL.
THATS true peace.
Do you follow?
