“... stay on your toes. Satan has tried his best to separate all of you from me, like chaff from wheat. (Luke 22:31)
Lydia’s father send me this urgent request yesterday: “Lydia has pneumonia in her lungs. They are draining the fluid off. She is sedated and on oxygen and antibiotics. They think they are giving her the right one but only time will tell when they can grow cultures. They also can't explain her acute liver. Please can you all pray into these exact things for now. The next couple of days are critical.”
I was talking with a Pastor friend about this and he felt that Satan was trying his best to sift us all as wheat - to separate us all from Jesus through unbelief.
“Your life is a journey you must travel with a deep consciousness of God. It cost God plenty to get you out of that dead-end, empty-headed life you grew up in. He paid with Christ’s sacred blood, you know... You call out to God for help and he helps—he’s a good Father that way. But don’t forget, he’s also a responsible Father, and won’t let you get by with sloppy living.” (1 Peter 1:17)
“But we are certainly not those who are held back by fear and perish; we are among those who have faith and experience true life!” (Heb 10:39 ❤️
