A Lighthouse Standing Firm
Hi, prayer warriors,
As we join hands and hearts together, linking shields, I want to share a breakthrough moment I had yesterday.
For almost a year I have been struggling with negative chatter from the enemy, climbing my mountain with what felt like cement block shoes but forging forward and persevering in faith. I know by faith that God hears us, loves our loved ones more than we can imagine and will bless what He has promised in His time. But I have felt like there is a big wall of separation keeping my heart from believing what my head knows.
Yesterday I had a lot of alone time with the Lord and I brought my struggle to the throne once again. The Lord brought to mind Daniel 3 in which Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego were facing the fiery furnace.
Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego answered the king, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to answer you on this point. If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to rescue us from the furnace of blazing fire, and He will rescue us from your hand, O king. But even if He does not, let it be known to you, O king, that we are not going to serve your gods or worship the golden image that you have set up!” Daniel 3:16-18
I said to the Lord, “Father, even if my marriage would not be restored, it would change nothing. I will still stand in covenant like a lighthouse standing firm, standing in the gap for my beloved and being the cover for my family.” Suddenly (!) I felt the peace I have been longing for. All of a sudden I knew that I knew that God had it all in His care. I smiled and had the assurance that all was well. Everything was clear. I knew that my spouse, as well as the other woman, was accountable to the almighty God. My loving God gave me such reassurance and confirmation from His Word that my only possible response was to shout His praises from the highest mountain.
Thinking about all of you today with love,
Your sister in Christ
