I cry out to you, O God, but you do not answer;
I stand up, but you merely look at me.
21 You turn on me ruthlessly;
with the might of your hand you attack me.
22 You snatch me up and drive me before the wind;
you toss me about in the storm.
23 I know you will bring me down to death,
to the place appointed for all the living.
24 "Surely no one lays a hand on a broken man
when he cries for help in his distress.
25 Have I not wept for those in trouble?
Has not my soul grieved for the poor?
26 Yet when I hoped for good, evil came;
when I looked for light, then came darkness.
27 The churning inside me never stops;
days of suffering confront me.
"Will the one who contends with the Almighty correct him?
Let him who accuses God answer him!"
Brace yourself like a man;
I will question you,
and you shall answer me.
8 "Would you discredit my justice?
Would you condemn me to justify yourself?
Can you pull in the leviathan [a] with a fishhook
or tie down his tongue with a rope?
2 Can you put a cord through his nose
or pierce his jaw with a hook?
3 Will he keep begging you for mercy?
Will he speak to you with gentle words?
4 Will he make an agreement with you
for you to take him as your slave for life?
5 Can you make a pet of him like a bird
or put him on a leash for your girls?
6 Will traders barter for him?
Will they divide him up among the merchants?
7 Can you fill his hide with harpoons
or his head with fishing spears?
8 If you lay a hand on him,
you will remember the struggle and never do it again!
9 Any hope of subduing him is false;
the mere sight of him is overpowering.
10 No one is fierce enough to rouse him.
Who then is able to stand against me?
Come, my children, listen to me;
I will teach you the fear of the LORD
keep your tongue from evil
and your lips from speaking lies.
14 Turn from evil and do good;
seek peace and pursue it.
11 Who has a claim against me that I must pay?
Everything under heaven belongs to me.
I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;
I will counsel you and watch over you.
9 Do not be like the horse or the mule,
which have no understanding
but must be controlled by bit and bridle
or they will not come to you.
Wait for the LORD;
be strong and take heart
and wait for the LORD
Don't you know the times..Can you discernm if you are beign tested?
Keep silent in front of the Lord..Do not let rebelion to make you miss your blessing..
Remember Israel in the desert ..remember their failures...
the more pressure the enemy put it means only one thing your deliverance is near!!
You have walked a long path you are almost there. If you do not hear or see anything it doesn't mean the Lord is sleping or forgotten you..
He was the one giving the dreams ..putting the curiosity in you so you can search and see him in the way He wants you to know him.
Ask me He said and I will show you things you don't know..
Didn't you ask?
Let the Holy Ghost to guide you...Remember Elijah?
He awnts to know where the presence of the Lord was..it was not in the tornado..nor in the thunder, it was in the calm brezze
if you are heavy with emotions the Holy Gosh can give us only what we can received at the time..
Put all your loads in the shoulders of Jesus ..He will carry those for you..
His Yoke is light...there is a lot he wants to give you..
My question is ...are you ready to receive it?

1 samuel 30

3 When David and his men came to Ziklag, they found it destroyed by fire and their wives and sons and daughters taken captive. 4 So David and his men wept aloud until they had no strength left to weep. 5 David's two wives had been captured—Ahinoam of Jezreel and Abigail, the widow of Nabal of Carmel. 6 David was greatly distressed because the men were talking of stoning him; each one was bitter in spirit because of his sons and daughters. But David found strength in the LORD his God.
7 Then David said to Abiathar the priest, the son of Ahimelech, "Bring me the ephod." Abiathar brought it to him, 8 and David inquired of the LORD, "Shall I pursue this raiding party? Will I overtake them?"
"Pursue them," he answered. "You will certainly overtake them and succeed in the rescue."

The answer is with the Lord.Sometimes God does not show us early enough but a gain he is not late.Sometimes I have found myself in such situations but as I chose to forget what I want and Seek the Lord he comes through with a clear direction for me.Since the answer is with the Lord focus on the source.If you are anxious about it then perhaps you are not ready for the promise.
In 1 samuel 30:

david was distressed and confused.He never knew what he should do in this particular situation,perhaps he had many choices including even to die.But he knew his maker!When we are faced with unknown seek the known.The word says that seek the Lord with all your heart,soul and mind and every other thing will be added unto you.I would encourage you to shift your focus.

1.david encouraged himself.

2.He seeked first the presence of the Lord.

3.He inquired of the Lord.

4.he pursued the revealed purpose.


Take your heart with you to the maker nothing will be hidden.

Hi thissparta

I dream a lot. Even if a guy is cheating, I dont have to wonder because God just reveals it.
I know what your ex-girlfriend might have been through.

All I can say is that "Fear the Lord". The steps of a righteous man are ordered of the Lord. The Lord only reveals it now to you because He sees that you are ready to act upon His word and that you are ready to partner in doing His work with a Spirit sensitive woman like your ex-girlfriend.
I am at a stage where if God commands me to act, I just do it.

From a woman's perspective, it becomes very difficult to act if its relationship matters. We wait until God speaks to the man.

Please refer to the posting I did today. God has revealed that this guy will be marrying me in October even though we are apart now...however, there are things that leave me confused and tempted.

God bless you.

learn how to wait for the Lord ..move only when he tells you to..
Do not try to make things happen it does not work that way ..even if you know by revelation wait He will brings all into place..learn how to keep things on your heart..
Remember Mary got the revelation from the Angel but she did not broadcast the matter to know one..God himself was able to put things in place.
His will prevail always..patient and trust
Like mary be happy with whatever He revealed to you soon all will come into place..
Trust the Lord..
Shalom,

yes well, even more than patience, it's about discovering WHO God's choice is...at least in my case.

The Lord says, "My thoughts are not like your thoughts.
Your ways are not like my ways.
9 Just as the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.
This is what the Lord says:
"Give justice to all people,
and do what is right,
because my salvation will come to you soon.
Soon everyone will know that I do what is right
They all have gone their own way;
all they want to do is satisfy themselves
Of whom are you making fun?
Whom are you insulting?
At whom do you stick out your tongue?
I have been quiet for a long time.
Is that why you are not afraid of me?
12 I will tell about your 'goodness' and what you do,
and those things will do you no good.
13 When you cry out for help,
The Lord says, "Shout out loud. Don't hold back.
Shout out loud like a trumpet.
Tell my people what they have done against their God;
tell the family of Jacob about their sins.
2 They still come every day looking for me
and want to learn my ways.
You cannot do these things as you do now
and believe your prayers are heard in heaven
I want people to be sorry for what they have done.
I don't want people just to bow their heads like a plant
and wear rough cloth and lie in ashes to show their sadness.
Free the people you have put in prison unfairly
and undo their chains.
Free those to whom you are unfair
and stop their hard labor.
7 Share your food with the hungry
and bring poor, homeless people into your own homes.
When you see someone who has no clothes, give him yours,
and don't refuse to help your own relatives.
8 Then your light will shine like the dawn,
and your wounds will quickly heal.
Your God will walk before you,
and the glory of the Lord will protect you from behind.
9 Then you will call out, and the Lord will answer.
You will cry out, and he will say, 'Here I am.'
If you stop making trouble for others,
if you stop using cruel words and pointing your finger at others,
10 if you feed those who are hungry
and take care of the needs of those who are troubled,
then your light will shine in the darkness,
and you will be bright like sunshine at noon.
11 The Lord will always lead you.
He will satisfy your needs in dry lands
and give strength to your bones.
You will be like a garden that has much water,
like a spring that never runs dry.
12 Your people will rebuild the old cities that are now in ruins;
you will rebuild their foundations.
You will be known for repairing the broken places
and for rebuilding the roads and houses.
Then you will find joy in the Lord,
and I will carry you to the high places above the earth.
I will let you eat the crops of the land your ancestor Jacob had."
The Lord has said these things.
