Exodus 9:15-16 "For by now I could have stretched out my hand and struck you and your people ...But I have raised you up for this very purpose, that I might show you my power and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth".
Matthew 25:34-36 "Then the King will say to those on his right, 'Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me."
Why do people have to go through tough times struggling with depression, severe back pains, marital problems, financial pressure, lonely times or even heat stress and fatigue? The lessons that each experience have to bring are beyond me.
I just know that when I am sick and my immunity system shut down and I become very weak and vulnerable, in my times of stress and financial needs. Angels in the physical form of friends show up at my door step, carrying soup, crackers, donuts and even goodie bags.
Though normally I am content with text messages, emails and chats, it is when my beloved friends are in distress that actual contact becomes necessary and crucial and I reach out to let them know that I love them and thinking of them during their tough times. Its when the people I love are in need that I go all out and reach all my networks and everyone comes through wonderfuly to help a friend.
Today, I find that times of distress though might be carrying within themselves deeper spiritual issues for me to face each time. They are always an opportunity to recieve love, kindness and heal the dry cracked land of my soul.
Today I declare that I am going to see God's favor in a greater way, that new doors are going to begin to open for me, that super natural opportunities are coming my way, that God is setting up divine connections for me, that I am always at the right place at the right time, that I am going to overcome every obstacle and defeat every enemy, that I am going to see every dream and every desire that God has placed into my heart come to pass.
