It never ceases to amaze me how thorough and specific God is. As I wrote yesterday’s blog revealing the troublesome night I’d had and the tender and loving response of Jesus, I then went to see my prayer warrior. She began to tell me the scriptures God had given her to be praying with my name used in the scripture. (This was done without her knowing anything about my troublesome night and early morning). From Isaiah 41:10 she was praying, “Fear not, for Earnie is with you, be not dismayed for I am Earnie’s God. I will strengthen Earnie. Yes, I will help Earnie. I will uphold Earnie with My righteous right hand.” I just wept all over again.
One of the things I have to learn about myself over and over again is my process of starting anything from scratch. I go into a project with great enthusiasm eager to be learning. Then, I begin to see how all of this learning will need to be used and implemented by me. It is then I question and doubt. Satan tries very hard to use this character flaw and shut me down. However, God uses the same flaw to help me realize it is not in myself He wants me relying anyway, it is in HIM and HIM alone. He has given me His Holy Spirit to enable this to take place too. Writing this out does help me see this very clearly. It moves the anxiety into expectation. Wow, God is so AMAZING!
