Matt 7:7“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 8For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.
If you are believing the Lord for something big, like a miracle or you have big problems that need to be solved (again, a miracle is needed) let me share with you from my own experience. I just had one of the biggest miracles ever performed in my life (the Lord has worked many). It was during this biggest miracle that took me to the heights that I was also brought down to the lowest depths. My faith was tested and attacked in a way I had not thought possible, but the Lord was with me He did not leave me or forsake me just as He promised. These words are for you. Understand that the biggest miracles often come with the lowest valleys.
Here are two examples from the Word: Jesus our Lord and David the Lord's beloved
|And at three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, "Eloi, Eloi, lema|
sabachthani?" (which means "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?")
What happened here ^^? The Lord God just before ascending the heights in glory as our Savior through His shed blood was crying "why have you forsaken me" to the Father. Do you see it? Its the valley before the mountaintop.
Again here with David:
Lord, do not rebuke me in your anger
or discipline me in your wrath.
2Have mercy on me, Lord, for I am faint;
heal me, Lord, for my bones are in agony.
3My soul is in deep anguish.
How long, Lord, how long?
4Turn, Lord, and deliver me;
save me because of your unfailing love.
5Among the dead no one proclaims your name.
Who praises you from the grave?
6I am worn out from my groaning.
All night long I flood my bed with weeping
and drench my couch with tears.
7My eyes grow weak with sorrow;
they fail because of all my foes.
8Away from me, all you who do evil,
for the Lord has heard my weeping.
9The Lord has heard my cry for mercy;
the Lord accepts my prayer.
10All my enemies will be overwhelmed with shame and anguish;
they will turn back and suddenly be put to shame.
Sound like David was at a low point here?^^ David had to run and hide in caves from Saul before he became king. David also had the valley before the mountaintop experience.
This brother would like to encourage you to pray and not give up. Hold on for one more day. Do not let anyone or anything rob you of your faith because your faith is everything. If the enemy or this world or men can steal your faith they can steal your miracle, dont let it happen.
The Lord has led this brother through valley experiences to share with you today the truth, which is if you hold on in faith, eventually at some point you will look in victory at your situation. We cannot know when or how, only the Lord knows. Also know that the Lord does not enjoy putting you through your valley, He loves us and is kind and merciful even if you dont sense that in your valley please just hold on. The Lord told us what He is doing
|... And we know that for those who love God all things work together for|
good, for those who are called according to his purpose
The victories the Lord gives are very very great. If you are in a valley experience today open your bible up and read what happened to our fathers in the faith, how the ran and hid and suffered then they looked on in victory on the day the Lord answered them. This brother can testify along with the scriptures that the Lord does make us wait sometimes but victory and our answer is always on the way. Dont give up, stand, be strong, read the promises and stand on them. Offer the Lord your faith and His Word/His promises when you pray and fight for yourself in prayer. Make your case before the Lord but give Him something to work with. Too many people do not bring the King of Kings any faith or His own Word and they walk away empty handed. We have to give the Lord something to work with!!
The Lord our God is a King and His Kingdom is made up of laws. So just like a lawyer we have to make our case before Him. Read the Bible and see how the fathers in the faith made their case before the Lord, they reasoned with Him according to His own Word and they received what they asked for. How can the Lord resist His own Word? Think about it.
Don't give up, keep the faith. grace and peace
