I want to say something, please. I have been so, so fortunate to have had the opportunity to get to know many forum brothers and sisters more intimately through the years. Amazing people, all.
And if you are carrying a burden as a 'Christian in the midst', rest assured you are in good company and far from alone.
Nor am I in any way immune, and what an understatement that is! It's been a complicated and challenging series of circumstances right from the get-go. It's given me some practical experience on alot of things, lots of battle scars, and undying hope and proof each time that He does indeed bring us through the storms. Even if sometimes (often) I have to win that Faith battle afresh with each new challenge: to get my feet under me and back on the Rock again.
I like to share the "Proof" with you all ONLY to encourage you that the Helper actually will help! both in the biggest and the smallest details of life! We know God is no respecter of persons.
In the world I can't help but say, "here I am"; do I have anything that helps you? And often I don't. BUT! If one can put 1000 to flight, and two 10,000, then we ALWAYS have something that helps, and helps in a way that trumps all the ways of the world!
When I am weak, then I am strong. The more we're up against a wall, the greater opportunity for His Glory to shine..with no mistaking it...giving credit where credit's due, which is the way He wants it to be so that we'll have the confidence in Him to really stop trying to run our own lives and find out what Living In and Through Him is all about.
It's just a matter of stepping through a 'door' into a New World=the Kingdom=which the Holy Spirit is the embodiment of. And THEN living from 'there' (from the Inner Man-the Holy Spirit), even while we're still 'here' in the world.
This we are to do daily, just as Jesus, who taught Righteousness with Right Understanding of God the Father, did.
Can you even imagine if Christians were as committed to our God as Muslims are to theirs?
Yes they are committed to all the wrong things, with no God in them, but what if? What if we
were as serious about our God as they are?
What if we lived with true 'fear and reverence' as Daniel did?
Really we should be just knocked over, laid out on the floor at the weight of what God has done for us! And maybe you are! I often end up lecturing myself. lol.
In Him there is no fear. In Him there is no darkness. He is Power, and Power evidenced through us. He is a Conforming Power, molding us to Kingdom Reality. Therein lies all Healing.
