Prayer Please

March 29th, 2014

Dear All,

I am sure some of you have read my posts and you can see that I started off not so well in my relationship with the Lord but I have become much better. Anyways, I am finally in my last year of college and like I said in my old post, the lord gave me a new major. I have been doing so well and I am so much at peace and enjoying my academic experience. I am glad that he rescued me just at the right time. I have even grown so close to the Lord and I am  very proud.

Since I am in last year of college, I decided to apply to a graduate programs in community health which I have always wanted to do. I did not have enough funding to submit more than 3 applications. I had the grades and everything. I sincerely went to the lord and prayed for his help. I wanted to know one school that I would get into without having to waste money on other schools which would reject me. I had 2 schools that I knew I would get into and I had one prestigious school I wasn’t sure of but chose to apply there. I prayed and the lord instantly answered that very moment. He gave me the prestigious school which I was not too confident. I was so scared but I remembered that sometimes God wants us to do things that do not make sense so he can show us his power. I ask God for a sign just like David in the bible did and the very next day, someone in my class wore a T-shirt with that school name. I put the application to that only one school and remember this is the biggest risk one can ever take but I did it anyways.

I kept praying and praying. I finally heard from the school and it rejected me. I cried so hard but I kept saying God’s mercy endures forever and the Lord gave me the bible verse that says that the Battle I not yours but His. He also gave me, Hebrews 11 verse. All this, I believed the Lord was talking to me. I continued to see many people wear shirts of that school name and even on cars. sometimes, I would just laugh because it became too funny to see the school name that God had promised me even on random places. One pastor in church even mentioned the name and the other day I went to church and I saw one guy wearing the same school name. All this really would not be God playing games with me but I believe he is showng me that he is still in control.

I have struggled with my faith but I have never had to hold God’s hand so tight ever in my life. I am doing just that right now. I believe that he did not trick me because the devil is the only person who does that. God rewards the faithful.

Now, my brothers and sisters, I need you all to help me stand in faith and believe that our Lord is forever faithful. the devil probably set me up or something and I know God will deliver his promise to me. I am too confident because I see the school name almost every single day. I believe God is fighting my battles. Please help me stand in prayer. Even if God delivers the package but with different stuff I will always be grateful and give him all the praise. God can not give me what I cannot handle.

Please pray for me. I am graduating in a month and I do not want to be stuck. I believe God will deliver at his time. I will share with you what the Lord is going to do. Thank you.

    Precious, when i was reading about your experience, i was all smiling.

    This is the true God. Our God has the best Humor I have ever come across.

    Lets look at some of the Bible’s examples. Joseph and his dreams : Genesis 37:5-10
    One night Joseph had a dream, and when he told his brothers about it, they hated him more than ever. “Listen to this dream,” he said. 7“We were out in the field, tying up bundles of grain. Suddenly my bundle stood up, and your bundles all gathered around and bowed low before mine!”

    His brothers responded, “So you think you will be our king, do you? Do you actually think you will reign over us?” And they hated him all the more because of his dreams and the way he talked about them.
    Soon Joseph had another dream, and again he told his brothers about it. “Listen, I have had another dream,” he said. “The sun, moon, and eleven stars bowed low before me!”
    This time he told the dream to his father as well as to his brothers, but his father scolded him. “What kind of dream is that?” he asked. “Will your mother and I and your brothers actually come and bow to the ground before you?”

    Here Joseph, was already been shown by God through a vision that one day he would be a ruler. But the cave he was thrown into and sold off as a slave to foreign land in egypt , wiped all those visions from his memory. I doubt he would even want to remember about any of those visions. He gets into egypt , he still does not know what God decides – it has to be fulfilled . So he is set up to the High class of pomp , gets struck for doing nothing .. locked up , feels dejected and rejected. He lost hope when he was in that prison.

    What am trying to say , God loves reaching out at that point when we are so low , feeling rejected, hopeless. And the only reason that we hope for survival is Him. This is the moment He shows up . He lifts you up from that dust and crowns you in glory but your too busy relying on Him , you dont even see the glory. Because, the glory and praise was never there when you were in terms of need and despair. You only clench to God .

    Another example , is David. This is a funny character. He has already known the secrets of the Holy Spirit , how to channel the Holy Spirit to His soul from his young age. It seems when you are alone in a place where there is no noise but more danger you learn to trust God quickly. He is a teenage kid who kills lions, bears, fends off wolves . Not because he is powerful but he relies on that Strength of the Holy Spirit.This confidence in the Holy Spirit was the drive that got him to have the kind of boldness that the strongest army of that time wouldnt have to face Goliath.
    However, what happens to David… in His times where the devil set despair into his mind and he sinned against God , He knew the trick to get back to God. He says … He humbled himself by fasting. He was a king but would undress and fast and praise the Lord. It seems the quickest way to Get God’s attention is being humble. And the quickest way to humble yourself is by fasting and praying. Putting all your defence, stereotypes, controls , and everything aside but relying on Him alone.

    To this , God will come and uphold you . Later on his life , He is called a man after God’s own heart. And he beared the seed to the Messiah Yahweh.

    So , my dear friend. if it is God’s will for you to be in that school …. you WILL find yourself there.

    Always pray let your will be done.
    Dont end like Jonah who wanted to dodge the will and had something else planned . You will end up swallowed by a whale only to be spat back to the path God wants you to be .

    Let his will be done in your life

    Be blessed.
