Circumstances do not change the promise!

If we focus on our surroundings or the circumstances involved in the lives of our prodigals, our faith can falter.  However, we must keep our mind on the promise, because that is what is really true.

God knew about our tendency to focus on what we can see and hear.  Perhaps that is why He had Paul write these words:  "Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy--meditate on these things."  (Philippians 4:8)

When your faith is weakened for the moment, meditate on this verse:  "God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent.  Has He said, and will He not do?  Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?" (Numbers 23:19)

Hold on the promises God has given you regarding your prodigal.  It WILL come to pass!

"Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us"  (Ephesians 3:20).

A few months ago, I asked God, as I still do from time to time, to "help mine unbelief" (Mark 9:24).  Well, He is doing just that!  Miracle after miracle has occurred, and my faith is growing.  I want to share some of those miracles with you so your faith can increase.

First, and probably the most significant to you as pray-ers for prodigals, we have had 12 prodigals saved!  TWELVE!!!  And, prodigal related, a lady who attends church with me came home a couple of weeks ago to find her prodigal daughter lying on her couch as if she had never been gone.  She is still at home and has been attending church!  A 30-year prodigal was saved just last week, making the real number 13!

Next, I will address the healings.  About four weeks ago, a friend of mine came to church in a wheelchair because she couldn't walk well enough to come without it.  She went up for prayer and left in a wheelchair.  However, the next week, she came with only a walker.  The next week, she needed neither and climbed the stairs to sing in the choir loft with the choir TWICE!! 

The son of a couple from church was diagnosed with cancer, having tumors in numerous places.  Last week, we received word that the doctor said his cancer had "vanished," quoting the radiologist reading the CT scan!  VANISHED!!

A gentleman from our church had a sister on life support.  They gathered the family around her bed to say their final good-byes before they removed her life support.  She did not die!!  In fact, she revived and is doing well!!! 

And, God healed my thumb!!!!! 

There have been so many amazing miracles.  God is amazing! 

If you are struggling with unbelief, if you feel you cannot receive answers to prayer for healing or for your prodigal that seems so lost, hold on!  God is working even now!!  And ask Him to help you love Him more and for your faith to be increased!  He will answer those prayers beautifully!  Ask Him!!  He will!!

More Scriptural Promises

"They shall walk after the Lord.  He will roar like a lion.  When He roars, Then his sons shall come trembling from the west."  (Hosea 11;10)

"So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten.  Then you shall know that I am in the midst of Israel:  I am the Lord your God And there is no other.  My people shall never be put to shame.  And it shall come to pass afterward That I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your old men shall dream dreams, Your young men shall see visions."  (Joel 2:25, 27-28)

"And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.  If any man see his brother sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask, and he shall give him life for them that sin not unto death."  (1 John 5:15-16)

"The Lord has appeared of old to me, saying:  'Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you.'" (Jeremiah 31:3)

Today I want to share a scripture that has built my faith recently, reminding me that there God will forgive the sins of the sinner, even if they are horrible sins.

Paul is telling Timothy of his many sins forgiven by God, and we know how God used Paul after his conversion.  "Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious:  but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief."  (1 Timothy 1:13)

If your prodigal seems so lost that salvation seems impossible, remember the Apostle Paul!  Your prodigals and mine can be saved!  I believe God CAN, and I know He WILL!!!
