"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 it? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good? - Numbers 23:19
I had the opportunity to share a biblical truth through teaching at the Woman 2 Woman Leadership Conference, at Fleetwood Bible Church, yesterday, and it was a blessing indeed for my thirsty soul! The group of women we were chosen to bless was small and intimate--my favorite way to minister...which is up close. If you are not a Bible teacher, then you may not realize that when teachers of the Word join with God to bring forth His truth, there can be a spiritual battle during the preparation. Well, for the first time in a long while, I became very astute to the enemy's schemes and so I asked the Lord to guard me from any wounds, because lately, I have been battle-weary.
I can testify that God was faithful in answering my prayers. He touched my heart through the lesson I brought forth. Yes, He was speaking to me, as I prepared to speak to the women (honestly, I sometimes I wonder if my ministry to others is really for me with just an audience watching!!). He showed me that He wants more of me, and He shouted to me in my heart, that I am loved! I am in awe of His continued faithfulness to me over the years--especially when I am distant toward Him. He has never given up on me, and Dear Child, He will never give up on you. Trust Him today with your heart, and watch Him deliver you!
