Thankful Thursday

Yesterday I wrote about my struggle with the ole flesh! This morning I read this scripture:
2 KINGS 6:17
17 And Elisha prayed, and said, "Lord, I pray, open his eyes
that he may see." Then the Lord opened the eyes of the young
man, and he saw. And behold, the mountain was full of horses
and chariots of fire all around Elisha.

What we see with our physical eyes is not all that's happening. Isn't God always right on time?
This mornings scripture assures my heart even more that just because I may see and think one thing, doesn't mean that God isn't at work behind the scenes working on others hearts just as he does mine.

It is easy to focus on what we see instead of walking in faith believing those things we call out. Believing that our Sons and Daughters are saved and claiming that. God tells us that we must ask BELIEVING, not doubt that he can ever answer us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ACTS 26:18
18 'to open their eyes and to turn them from darkness to light,
and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive
forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who are
sanctified by faith in Me.'

This is my prayer today. That God would open the eyes of my loved ones (and me) to see his truth and his light. To share that light with the world and the unlovable. Way to often we love the ones that love us back.

I'm reminded today that this is not what Jesus calls us to. He calls us to love those that are our enemies even.

Thankful this Thursday for the Word! For his gentle reminders as he speaks softly to my heart any time I quiet myself and actually HEAR HIM.

  1. Holly, this was so inspiring my sister. Yes, yes, yes!!! I agree with you one hundred percent. I love that scripture about Elisha's servant too; one of my favorites too. What our eyes can't see is that God is working behind the scene all the time, even when things are rough. My patient didn't sleep last night, BUT GOD!!! I know He was working and touching my body to be able to handle this this morning, especially without sleep and having to work. God is so good!! My strength is in You, Lord, its in You, its in You. Amen! I love that song. Holly, God always bless when you post, don't stop. Thanks! See you on the list.....
