Brothers and sisters in Messiah! How exciting is this? My first blog post. I feel so . . . with it!
My goal for blogs is to share when something particularly insightful is brought to my attention. I look forward to your comments. So, here goes!
The wind is exercising its muscle. The warm weather is bringing life to dormant grass and plants and I am suffering! Three days in a row of suffering terrible allergy symptoms and I am not a happy camper. I have been healed of medication dependent allergies and so finally this morning, after half a box of kleenex and my right eye almost swelled shut with painful itching, I yelled, "Enough!!" I stood up and loudly claimed my healing and came against the symptoms in the name of Messiah Yeshua. Within an hour, I noticed the eye itching had stopped and the swelling was going down. I have used only two kleenexes since taking my stand.
Why? What is going on? And why did it take three days for me to reestablish the truth of my healing? What flooded my mind were instances where self-sufficiency has been a problem. Abba seems to be reminding me that I need Him - - - ALL the time. How easily I get sidetracked and lose sight of my heavenly Father's pervasiveness. I am praying for a loved one for an infection she is fighting. Abba gave the Scripture from Psalms 34:19 - Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but YHVH delivers him out of them all. Because we live in a fallen world, we will encounter things that infiltrate our fallen flesh. This Scripture is YHVH's promise that when He is our sufficiency, deliverance is sure!
One thing I know to be true. If you want YHVH's pervasiveness in your life, He will be there. He knows my heart. When I begin to loose sight of Him in the scheme of things, He brings me back - sometimes gently, sometimes not so gently, but He never leaves me and He never forsakes me. I am grateful for allergy symptoms that led me back into His grace and peace!
