Weekends for us usually means work but we get to explore more of this amazing property and then sometimes we will head further bush to hunt deer (for photos) and just enjoy being in the bush. While we live in the country on a large property it is not the same as being in the bush. Our own place we buy will be further inland, away from the coast, where the eucalyptus grow. It’s my happy place but for now this property is such a blessing! What are you up to this weekend?
LIstening to Kenneth Copeland this morning about healing which I really don’t feel is a priority for me at present, but I was watching anyway and this scripture jumped out at me. Basically it’s saying Cheer Up, Be Happy, Your sins have been forgiven why aren’t you full of Joy? Hit me like a tonne of bricks because I am certainly not joyous at present. To me God is saying, what have you go to be so angry and unhappy about, you know that’s a sin and I have forgiven you of all that so be HAPPY! I really need to work on my Joy!
Say this daily until it sinks in. This is a renewing of the mind type of thing and it’s absolutely necessary. If we don’t walk in love we can’t activate our Faith and it will hinder our prayers. This is probably one of the hardest things to do but God never gives us anything we cannot do, so, lets get to it!
I’m on a new mission. I question everything. This time my question is why aren’t prayers getting answered?
I have seen really good Christian people die recently, and while everyone dies, one of these persons was young with a heap of kids, and one was an older person in their prime. Both good Christian people but the thing that baffles me is they BOTH had hundreds if not thousands of people praying for them. Jesus said “When 2 or more gather in prayer I am in the midst of them” so how goes it when thousands are praying and the person dies? I have no doubt in God or Jesus NONE, but there is something we are all missing. God answers prayers, it’s scriptural, so why aren’t they getting answered. Are we not praying the right way? Are we not being TAUGHT God’s actual message? Are we not delving deeper into the Word? Maybe we just grab our Bibles, have a quick read and then think that is enough to sustain our spiritual life. Maybe when we pray we are full of woe? I don’t know but I am going to find out. I think Churches have a lot to answer for these days when you have people praying and nothing is happening. I may get a lot of dispute over this but there HAS to be a reason and I am sure that there is.
I am reading a book by Kenneth E. Hagin at present called Praying to Get Results. It’s a small book but gee it has some power in it. I am going to keep reading it, over and over and over until I fully understand why prayers arent getting answered. I will find out what the Word says about unanswered prayer and then I am going to come back and tell you what I find. I think it’s so important to know these things now more than ever. We are in the last days and we need to start doing things properly!
Or appear to be. There just doesnt seem to be enough daylight hours to get everything done so when the fences need to be done you do it by buggy light!
Mornings start early here on the farm among the cattle and the frost. Such cold brisk mornings and I am so glad the cold weather is finally here!
