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!!
