Linking up with Grace & Truth

Fridays, as the LORD allows, will be link up day for me with a new to me Network of Christian Bloggers at 

Grace & Truth : A Weekly Christian Link Up

I hope you will enjoy coming along with me as we visit with them. To kick off my participation I have gone way back into my blogging history to re-post one of my own that I have not read for a long time but I liked it this morning. Hope you enjoy!

3:05 A.M.

Be Prepared. When you ask Father a question, He WILL answer you!! And that question can be something technical, even a concept about web site building that you do not understand; something that try as hard as you may you just cannot figure it out. He may not answer you though when you are sitting at the computer. It may be long after you have closed out the screen, powered-down, and shut off the light. It may be the morning after you have been sleeping soundly but for some reason you are awake a couple hours before the alarm, you get up, stumble into the bathroom and boom… all of a sudden it is perfectly clear! He has answered you! But it’s too early to go test it. So you go back to bed, go back to sleep – smiling!

Yes, when you ask Father a question – He WILL answer you! He may not answer you when you think He should and it may not be in the place you thought He would… certainly not at 3:05 a.m. in the bathroom when your discussion with Him was at the office, two days before. No, that would not be my ideal time or place! But you know what? HE ANSWERED! So who am I to argue with Him?! And yes I have tested it and it worked beautifully!

So, give Him time to get you to the place that you can receive His answer to your question. There is no doubt; He knew the answer to my question from eternity past. Yes, long before computers and web site building programs were given to the mind of men, Father knew all about them, all the answers to all the questions to ever be asked. Why would He wait until 3:05 a.m. to answer me? I don’t know and that one He may not answer until eternity future – no matter. He is my Father and my God and He LOVES ME!

So! Have you asked Him a question He has not answered yet? He will… just as soon as He gets you to your 3:05 a.m. Remember… He is YOUR Father and YOUR God and HE LOVES YOU!

Psalm 143: 1 Hear my prayer, O LORD, give ear to my supplications: in thy faithfulness answer me, and in thy righteousness. (KJV) [source]

Whatever the question – whatever the prayer – whatever the circumstance, remember:

Psalm 69: 12 They who sit in [the city’s] gate talk about me, and I am the song of the drunkards.  
13 But as for me, my prayer is to You, O Lord. At an acceptable and opportune time, O God, in the multitude of Your mercy and the abundance of Your loving-kindness hear me, and in the truth and faithfulness of Your salvation answer me. 
14 Rescue me out of the mire, and let me not sink; let me be delivered from those who hate me and from out of the deep waters. (Amplified Bible) [source]

“True prayer is simply a quiet, sincere, genuine conversation with God. It is a two-way dialogue between friends.” W. Phillip Keller

HIS MINISTRY TO YOU

 Day 16 of 2015 – a day to trust and not fear!  ~~~ Kathie

Almighty ALL Ways Always

May I share with you something I just noticed or perhaps it is the HOLY SPIRIT bringing it to my attention?

1 Why, Adonai, do you stand at a distance? Why do you hide yourself in times of trouble? via PS 10 NASB;CJB – A Prayer for the Overthrow of the – Bible Gateway.

Times of trouble? Hide Yourself? GOD hiding Himself? 

Didn’t we just speak of Times of Trouble a couple of days ago? And didn’t the Psalmist pen that ABBA is our Strong Tower in times of trouble?  See HERE.

  10 (9) Adonai is a stronghold for the oppressed, a tower of strength in times of trouble. via Psalm 9 NASB;CJB – A Psalm of Thanksgiving for God’s – Bible Gateway.

Yes. There it is ADONAI is a tower of strength in times of trouble.

So what’s the deal? Is GOD a strong tower in times of trouble or not? 

I say He is. I say His Strength NEVER diminishes. {11 God also said to him, “I am God Almighty; . . .    via Genesis 35:11 NASB – God also said to him, “I am God – Bible Gateway.}  HE says so too. He is ALL Mighty, in ALL Ways Always.

Again, I ask: What’s the deal?

We believe the Penman of these Psalms to be David. In Psalm 9 he is saying GOD is a strong tower in times of trouble; in Psalm 10 he is saying where are You GOD? Is there a contradiction here? Not with GOD. Is David human? Oh, yeah! Just like you and me! Does DADDY GOD understand? For sure! For sure! HE does! Is HE still the Strong Tower even when we doubt and question and feel sorry for ourselves and rail on Him because we can’t see what HE is doing? Absolutely!  What did HE say in Hebrews?

 Hebrews 13:5 Keep your lives free from the love of money; and be satisfied with what you have; for God himself has said, “I will never fail you or abandon you.” via Hebrews 13:5 NASB;CJB – Make sure that your character is free – Bible Gateway.

Even David was prone to forget the faithfulness of GOD and become dissatisfied with his present situation; but sooner or later he always repented.

There’s hope for you and me!

Yep! GOD is still our Strong Tower even when we can’t SEE Him!

Rejoice in your weekend! Our DADDY GOD is STILL on His Throne! HE is still the ALMIGHTY!

 Day 9 of 2015 – a day to trust that JESUS loves us and fear not!  ~~~ Kathie
