Manifestations From God

1980 – My family moved to Florida.  My husband and I needed furniture after we found our  apartment in Sarasota.  It wasn’t the first time we had moved.  Most of the time we would move leaving personal items behind us.  God  has always been faithful to restore what the locusts have eaten.  We felt God called us to that territory. 

I found an advertisement for a double sized bed and mattress.  The sellers were asking $25 for the items.  I made a call.  We purchased that old bedset and slept on it for a a number of years. 

The man that sold us the bed let us know that his Christian mother had been sleeping in the bed and she prayed many prayers in the bed. 

I believe that bed was anointed by the Lord because of the prayers of that woman. 

I heard from God many times when I would be resting on that bed. 

Have you ever heard of the prayer cloths written about in the Bible?  I also received a healing in my body  after I spent years sleeping in that bed.  Praise to God for the wonderful and miraculous things he performs.  

God is alive and he is among us.

Acts 19:11-12  (NIV),

God did extraordinary miracles through Paul,  so that even handkerchiefs and aprons that had touched him were taken to the sick, and their illnesses were cured and the evil spirits left them.”

 

We’re Reading From The Same Book

It sounds as though our Comforter & Teacher (Jesus & the Holy Spirit of God) have taught us the same lessons! He is using the same Words to minister to us, isn’t he?

I spent time writing to some Christian friends.  When my friends sent messages back to me I realized that they have gone through similar things I have experienced and they have learned some of the same lessons I’ve learned.  Doesn’t it make sense that we have matching knowledge since we have been taught by the same instructor and we have been reading words from the exact same book?

Old Story Good Message

I think I’d do things differently

When I lived in Brooksville, Florida I saw a sign at a library. It may have been a friend’s of the library group that had a special sale going on. There were boxes and boxes of books being sold.

I loved to see what books could be found.

There were old school books in one of the boxes. The front cover looked a bit familiar to me. I saw that this book had a label in the front of it that showed it was once from Ohio. Since I was from Ohio I decided I would get that book. The cost was small. The contents were valuable to me.

Near the back of the book there was a story I liked. I had heard a priest talk about this story before. Let me retell this story although I only recall the meaning behind the story now.

A young man was taking a walk. The man saw a very large watermelon growing on a tiny little vine. He looked at the vine and said something like, “If I were God I think I’d do things differently.”

He continued his walk. He approached an oak tree. He saw that there were tiny little acorns growing on the massive oak tree. He said, “If I were God I think I’d do things differently.”

The young man decided that it was time for a nap. He fell asleep below the oak tree. He was awakened when an acorn dropped on his head. He said, “Thank God that wasn’t a watermelon.”

When I heard the priest telling this story he spoke about that story when he was officiating a funeral for a young woman that had died. The young woman had three small children. The priest wanted to remind everyone that God knows best. We may not always understand the ways of God. There are times when we place our trust in our Omnipotent Father declaring we know all things are working together for our good for those who are called by God.

 

One Of Many Prayers Found In God’s Word

“Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you:

And that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men: for all men have not faith.

But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil.

And we have confidence in the Lord touching you, that ye both do and will do the things which we command you.

And the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God, and into the patient waiting for Christ.”,

2 Thessalonians 3:1-5 (KJV)
