Fragile But Faithful

Satan loved me questioning growing my ministry. He wanted me to remember the ugly words that were said to me and broke my confidence. My fragility was causing unbelief but God was helping me. Mark 9: 24, "...Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!" I kept saying, "I trust You, God! This was Your idea and not mine! If this is still the plan, I need a billboard!"

God didn't send one but three people to me in the month of December - all with the same message. This is a donation for your ministry. I believe in you and am excited to see what God is doing. By their fruits I would say that they are all wise stewards of their money. I was overwhelmed by their generosity and the fact they would trust me with their hard earned money! A church that I spoke at that month made a donation. A relative of the lady in charge had been reading my blogs and wanted to help and sent a check! I had not been raising money so why did these people donate two months after my conference? They did not even know I had anything on the books! I believe God nudged them to show me I was going to be fine and they believed in me, through the power of God!

I thought back to my Jesus Calling devotion. "Because you are precious to Me, I want you to take good care of yourself: spiritually, emotionally, and physically. Make time for pondering Scripture in your mind and heart. Protect yourself, both emotionally and physically, from those who would take advantage of you. Remember that your body is the Holy Spirit's temple. I also want you to help others discover the glorious good news - the free gift of eternal Life for all who believe in Me." Isaiah 14: 27, "The Lord, the God of battle, has spoken—who can change his plans? When his hand moves, who can stop him?" TLB I am beyond amazed at what He is doing and how He is showing off! He is bringing the desire of my heart!
