In the mornings and afternoons, I send scriptures and inspirational phone texts to people. For the last two weeks, I had been struggling with whether or not I should take two people off the list because they had been bad-mouthing me and my messages or they just seemed uninterested in them. I didn't want to "force" God's Word on them so I thought about just deleting their name from the group list but part of me said, "don't keep them in darkness".
So this morning, BEFORE I sent the scriptural text, I prayed and asked God what I should do. Ten minutes later, while I was watching Joyce Meyer on t.v., my nephew sent me a text. (He also sends morning texts sometimes during the week)
The text my nephew sent read:
"Matthew 5:16 Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in Heaven. After this scripture, he continued with; When people will not hear the good(sic) news(sic) or when people hate you for loving the Lord or talk about you for sharing the word(sic). REMEMBER to keep being the light that makes its way thru(sic) darkness. Have a blessed day. S.O.S.Ministries
I was ecstatic with joy. I KNEW this was God working through my nephew to answer my prayer. So I kept the people on my group list and sent my morning text.
Then this afternoon, I was checking my FB wall and 'My Life With God' page posted this:
"Love the people who seem to oppose you because of your sharing the Word of God. Instead of being discouraged, ask God to send the Holy Spirit to help you to touch their hearts. May the Heavenly Father's Blessing be with you always!!!
Yes!!!! I LOVE THE LORD, MY ALMIGHTY GOD!!!
He is so good for answering my prayers by giving me BOTH revelations today. I take it as... my nephew's text was God telling me what HE WANTED me to do according to His plan and the 'My Life With God' post was God writing the message on my heart so I DON'T FORGET.
Thank You, so much Father. I will forever be Your loyal and faithful servant! Amen.
