A Testimony of God’s Faithfulness
Here is an example of what the LORD is doing to make His bride ready for His return.
If anyone knows of one who has a special needs child, they know of the stress that they go through which wears you down and cause you to become vulnerable to the enemy’s attacks, and if that person also has areas of their life that need healing, they can become a prime target for the enemy.
This revelation took place after I told the LORD that I wanted all that I could receive of having His presence during my time with Him before my day began. He immediately started to reveal to me this situation that the enemy set me up for so that I would have a wedge between Him and me where I would have a seed of distrust towards Him, which would greatly hinder me.
This was an assignment of the enemy to keep me from trusting God and I didn’t see it for so many years. I couldn’t wholeheartedly trust the LORD because of this one incident!
I was under the attack of the enemy when he pushed my son off a high stool while sitting at the dining room table on to the tile floor on his head during a grand mall seizure. I was so upset that it happened that I couldn’t understand why God didn’t watch over and protect my son and prevent him from falling.
I watch my son close but sometimes I can’t for a few minutes. I had quickly taken my dog out to go to the bathroom and when I came back in my son was passed out on the floor. I was so shocked that the trauma of it had prevented me to see what really happened that God had protected him! The enemy had me so focused on what could have happened during the fall, that I completely lost focus on all the multitudes of times God had protected my son and was faithful!!!
He was not harmed and was just asleep, like after having other seizures when he would just go to sleep for a while. There was no blood, no broken teeth or nose, or was his head harmed, which could very well been!
Years later I was reading a devotional talking about how we can trust God and because I had allowed that seed of lies and distrust into my heart, I always felt I couldn’t trust Him, and the LORD started to reveal to me the truth.
I started to see what the scheme of the enemy was all about. He caused Levi to fall and because he knew I battled fear, he planted a seed in my heart where I truly couldn’t trust God.
After realizing that God had been very faithful that day I renounced believing the lies of the enemy and I repented from thinking that I couldn’t trust God because He had not been faithful. I prayed total restoration of My trust in Him that truly all things work together for our good.
God is faithful that He will not allow any ungodly seed to be allowed to be in our heart. He will shine the Light on all darkness and remove everything that stands in the way of us being one with Him. He will remove anything that separates us from that place of intimacy and trust with our Heavenly Bridegroom. He is definitely getting His bride ready for Him…. a pure and holy Bride He is making us to be.
I encourage you this day to get into the secret place with the LORD and cry out to Him to show you if there is any ungodly seeds of separation and distrust in your own heart and be ready for Him to show you if there are any.
I pray an abundance of peace and prosperity in truly knowing the faithfulness of our LORD Jesus Christ.

Whenever He could He would come apart from the busyness of the world so that He could quiet Himself before the Father, for that is where He received direction and strength to carry out His will.|
