This morning I received a letter from a brother in the church. He is about 40. He is married with children. In the past, he struggled with his walk in Christ. He comes from a ‘rough’ background. He fell sometimes. But thru it all, he got up and started all over again. That is why I like him. Read his letter and be blessed. He will read your encouraging comments. God bless you all!
“Good Morning Ma’am! Greetings in the name of Jesus my Lord and God, I send you this message to give Glory to The Father of our Lord . Through the power of the Holy Spirit, my wife and children are all fine… a lot to say about but God’s goodness to me and my house, God has surrounded my house on every side
Deep inside me I desire most above these blessings is to be Holy, desperately want be clean and faithful to God in life , each day I make a mess of it and fall on my kneels to ask for forgiveness, desperately cry and feeling better filled with the Holy Spirit vowing never to fall again, whenever the day ends again I find myself unworthy to even call His Name or for Him to fellowship with me,I cry over this in worship and prayers but still needs to be filled at the end , I want to overflow with His presence, being unable to live continuously on that level of anointing of His presence, I get so empty desiring to be filled with the Holy Spirit…. I am miserable in this pursuit… counsel me Ma’am… Please counsel me, Ma! Scold me; rebuke me… I respect you so much in Jesus… Other than that, we are safe to the best of our knowledge, my faith in the Lord to keep us safe from the C19 increases faster than the fear . I do go to work daily to look after my poultry and come back before 1pm everyday. I ensure to keep safe distance, washing my hands as much as I can. It is in the Lord I put my trust because I believe Jesus is the answer for the world today. I also believe that you are safe, and I trust Tali is on top of things being safe I enjoy our radio station a lot… God bless you Ma’am! Shalom! I am your son… “
This is my answer to him:
I want to say that your letter made me happy. You sound like a man who is truly seeking God. You have made mistakes in the past, but you are not a fake. You are genuine. That is good! This seeking God is not easy at all. Most people do not want to enter that road because it is so difficult, spiritually, mentally, and emotionally. But once you enter, you sense the power of the Holy Spirit pushing you on, in a way that, even when it is hard, you cannot stop seeking God. The grace of God shall be revealed to you. With time you shall discover that it is not you who lives, but Christ who lives in you, who does the work inside your heart. Keep this in mind: Our Lord said this! If you seek Him, you shall find Him and His fullness. Meditate on these scriptures: Matthew 7: 7-11 and Jeremiah 29: 11-14). God bless you and your family! Love in Christ alone, Malia!
