1.2.2019 320P ET Post: Going to meet up with a family member who I prayed with when they were 10 years old to receive Jesus as a savior. At the time they knew when asked, Jesus was in their heart. They had a peace knowing Jesus forgave them of their sins. They expressed concerns about other family members. They thankfully had a joy unspeakable.
Now some 16 years later, they are still wonderful and loving…yet their Born-again Spirit has been wrecked a bit. They need revival. They don’t seem to need to go Church, fellowship, the Bible, and even prayer. Although I am not the Holy Spirit. God’s healing is evidenced in their heart. They had a father with emotional difficulties. They have been healed by much through knowing Jesus.
They work with children daily. But visit a bar a couple of times a week. They say, they don’t have a drinking problem. They do a little vaping on the side. Sent website articles. They just need to have some fun, they say. They can take care of it. We are praying for them. They are wonderful. But was we know, Jesus can only help us to “Live our best life.”
Not to go on, but I have even shared all medical evidence that I might have about Drinking and Vaping. They don’t seem to see the impact of these choices, neither did I when trapped in a web of satan’s lies. They have had a 2 week stomach ache and diarrhea. We have been praying for them. They are better, as of yesterday. No one drinks on a regular basis in the family. We have allergies and other simple autoimmune issues like Celliac and Rehinards.
Please pray for this Believer “M.” Thank you.
I will grab a bite with them today. Asking the LORD for guidance and direction, when to speak and when to be silent. I see God’s work in their life. Jesus has to be our reason for being or it is just stupid, fleeting.
May God deliver Christian and Messianic Believers from religiosity and compromise. Jesus sets us free, but how we desire things that are not lifegiving. As a Christian since my toddler years, I have faltered at times landing in the Shepherd’s hands. Healing me. Setting me back on the mountain and teaching me to climb or rest in His valleys.
