Prayer - #39 - When HOPE seems lost...

 A message of hope.....for when you feel – YOU JUST can't anymore...... I have it 'pasted' in my bible, and dated as to when it was passed to me.  It was a direct message from God to me through another and I believe another needs to read and believe and soak it in....Amen!

 it was written by David Wilkerson .  It was his final message before his death in April of 2011.

To believe when all means fail is exceedingly pleasing to God and is most acceptable.  Jesus said to Thomas, "you have believed because you have seen, but blessed are those that do believe and have not seen".  John 20.29 

Blessed are those who believe when there is no evidence of an answer to prayer -- who trust beyond hope when all means have failed.   

Someone has come to the place of hopelessness - the end of hope - the end of all means.   A loved one is facing death and doctors give o hope .  Death seems inevitable.  Hope is gone.  The miracle prayed for is not happening.   

That is when Satan's hordes come to attack your mind with fear, anger, overwhelming questions:  "where is your God now? You prayed until you had no tears left. You fasted. You stood on promises.  You trusted."
Blasphemous thoughts will be injected into your mind:  "Prayer failed, faith failed, don't quit on god-- just do not trust Him anymore. It does not pay!"  

Even questioning God's existence will be injected into your mind.  These have been the devices of Satan for centuries. Some of the godliest men and women who ever lived were under such demonic attacks.   

To those going through the valley and shadow of death, hear this word:  Weeping will last through some dark, awful nights - and in that darkness you will soon hear the Father whisper, "I am with you. I Cannot tell you why right now, but one day it will all make sense. You will see it was all part of my plan. 
 It was no accident. 
It was no failure on your part. 
 Hold fast. 
Let me embrace you in your hour of pain."  

Beloved, God has never failed to act but in goodness and love. When all means fail -- his love prevails.  Hold fast to your faith. Stand fast in his Word.  There is no other hope in this world.  

- David Wilkerson

I did believe that God could change a heart and a life and then a marriage.  I guess I am a 'lucky' one -- no --  blessed, but I was obedient and waited on God.  I really listened to WHAT God told me to do.  It was hard. It was a long process -- but SO worth the effort and wait.

I believed in something that was unseen -- it was not 'me' though -- it really was one SCARED woman just trying to please my Lord.  

I have now a love with my Savior that I never had before and I have a marriage that is back to ONE FLESH....which is what God had planned for us.   I never knew a marriage COULD be this good -- I would watch on TV and WANT that or this type of a relationship  -- but the one thing missing all the time on TV was -- a Godly marriage.....and now I got one.  God I pray YOU tarry a few more years...and you give us at least another 26...cause this 2nd 1/2 is AWESOME!  

It tears my heart up to hear of another that just 'can't' anymore - I pray - they will try just ONE more day.

Then again ( if you were at Girls with Swords tonight ) maybe that person can hold on just 5 more minutes...  just maybe....
