If you have read my blog in the past, you may be aware of my "reading the red" each morning and evening, reading the words of Jesus.  A few days ago I came to Luke 5:4b.  It says, " Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught."  I immediately felt like God was speaking directly to me!  I have been feeling like I am on the brink of a wonderful move of God in my life, and then I read this.  Now I have to find a way to "launch out into the deep," but I will tell you that I am excited about it!!!

You can take this verse personally, too.  Launch out into the deep with God; let down your nets for a draught, and see what you catch!!!

BIG RAINDROP yesterday. 

In my "reading the red," I came across Luke 4:18.  (I added verse 19 today.)  "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord."  Jesus came and accomplished this, and my lost loved one is included!!! 

Enough said!  I feel like rejoicing!!!

I know it has been a while, for which I apologize, but my raindrops have been private, and I have been trying to figure out how to share them without causing pain to anyone. 

I can share one raindrop, though.  I dreamt or had a vision of one of my lost loved ones admitting a limited belief in God!!  This person said about God, "He just doesn't understand!"  That is a huge step!!  That confirmed to me that this person is making progress in the path back to serving God, and I am thrilled!!  It also revealed to me more specific ways to pray! 

I also had a raindrop this morning!  I have been reading a book on intercessory prayer, and while reading a scripture reference, I felt the need to do a cross reference.  There, I found Jeremiah 1:10.  It says, "See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant."  I know I am in a fight for the soul and spirit of my loved one.  This verse gave me another reason for praise because of the victory it promises, but it also gives me more of a sense of responsibility!  I am accepting this challenge and will fight this spiritual battle that is raging against my loved one until that person is walking in victory with Christ Jesus, in favor with God and man!  I will, with the authority given to me by God, "root out...pull down...destroy" and "throw down" satan and his schemes.  I also will "build...and plant" life in Christ for my loved one!! 

Satan likes to make us think we are not effective in our prayers or in our fight for our lost, but this verse tells me yet again that he is a liar!! 

Praise be to our all-powerful God!!
