“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28)
Good Morning! I had another blog to share today but after getting a call from my gynecologist earlier this week, and talking with my nephrologist yesterday, I had to share how God intervened in His daughter’s life; secularly, physically and spiritually.
But first, Sister Copeland’s devotion as it ties in with my personal message. It is titled “The Works of His Hands.” It reads “I AM THE POTTER; you are My clay. I designed you before the foundation of the world. I arrange the events of each day to form you into this preconceived pattern. My everlasting Love is at work in every event of your life. On some days your will and Mine flow smoothly together. You tend to feel in control of your life when our wills are in harmony. On other days you feel as if you are swimming upstream, against the current of My purposes. When that happens, stop and seek My Face. The opposition you feel may be from Me, or it may be from the evil one. Talk with Me about what you are experiencing. Let My Spirit guide you through treacherous waters. As you move through the turbulent stream with me, let circumstances mold you into the one I desire you to be. Say yes to your Potter as you go through this day” [and life]. END OF DEVOTION
Yes, Lord! I am Your clay. I will go through this day, and my life on earth, submitting to Your Hands to be molded into Your desired purpose for me. During a deadly pandemic, civil unrest and so many other things that are displeasing to You, my mind remains focus on You and Your will for my life. I have come to understand not every battle is mine to fight and not consume my mind with earthly matters that you will handle in Your timing. Everything is not my business! Instead, I must diligently seek You and obey Your commandments in order to win the spiritual war to save my soul from this wicked world.
Today, in my moment, I am so excited to share Your blessings in my life! All of my gynecologist test results, there were many, returned negative. My nephrologist told me yesterday that my lab results all returned negative and there is no longer evidence of kidney disease. Praise the Lord! I repeat, there is no longer evidence of kidney disease! His recommendation, until I see him, Lord willing, in October 2021, is to continue my healthy renal diet, exercise and definitely stay hydrated. I was so excited listening to Dr. G., while simultaneously thanking God for His divine intervention and His love for me, and texting my husband to call me although he is a very busy man supervising approximately 130 employees in two states. However, I was too excited to wait until he got home to share the news.
As I previously mentioned, battlefield acupuncture worked well for my neck, shoulder and back. However, the back pain returned sooner than expected with increase morning spasms. Lord willing, I am scheduled on October 13, 2020, for six back injections in my nerves, instead of my joints done previously, which lasted only two months; but those two months I was thankful for the pain relief moments.
If God says no to intervening in my other health conditions, I will remain thankful for His grace to continue sustaining me until my eyes are permanently closed. As a matter of fact, I look forward to leaving this wicked world in exchange for eternal life in Heaven. Until then, I will continue striving for perfection in obedience to His commandments despite oppositions the devil and his demonic staff throw my way. I need peace of mind to remain in harmony with my Lord and Savior.
I love the eloquence of Apostle Paul when he stated “Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore, I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” II Corinthians 12:8-10
In addition to Sister Copeland’s devotion, I was blessed by this morning minister’s wives zoom conference. Sister Glenn’s lesson and testimony touched my heart. In her lesson, she reminded minister’s wives the importance of POSTURE in our walk, talk and every day life. Her lesson is applicable to all Christians, but for some reason, many have different expectations for minister’s wives even though we serve the same God, and will be judge by our actions, not by the positions of our husbands. The scriptures she shared below were in harmony with my blog message.
“For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor; no good thing does He without from those who walk is blameless. Lord Almighty, blessed is the one who trusts in you. (Psalm 84:11-12)
“Rejoice evermore. Pay without ceasing. In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. (I Thessalonians 5:16-18)
“Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord!” (Psalm 150:6)
