Lately my life has been turned upside down, I kept thinking what is it that I have been doing wrong. Then it came to me in a dream it is not what I am doing, it is what i am not doing. And that is praying enough. Recently my husband hurt himself really bad at work, and has not worked in three weeks. The job that he was/ will be working does not have disability unless you are out longer. Needless to say we are behind in everything, rent, car, electric, gas water you name it there is a shut off notice. I have been crazy running around trying to borrow money, crying, missing sleep. And the one thing that I did not do was give my problems to the Lord, and trust that he has an answer. This is what was revealed to me in my dream. I heard somewhere that you are supposed to give your problems to the Lord, Pray for what you need and he will provide. This is a concept that I am new at. At times I feel selfish praying for what i need and what my family needs all the time. I did not feel worthy. Over the last weeks my prayers have mostly been asking for forgiveness and apologizing for everything that I have done wrong. However, these dreams lead me to a possible answer another life line for me and my family. It led me to make a page to fund raise for my family, so that we can get back on track. If you are reading this I sincerely ask that you can visit this page and hopefully make a donation. http://www.gofundme.com/Please-Help-our-Family . If not that is truly ok, however, I do ask that you pray for me and my family. Also if there is anyone out there that can write to me to help me to become a stronger at praying and asking the Lord for tools I need in life to succeed and to pass on the word. I do know that we are good people and a strong family, however, I need some assurance maybe some reasoning why, I may feel guilty when pray. I join this blog so that my husband and I can connect with other and grow strong in the Word of God, and also so that I can connect with other who my have some answers to my questions or advice for us as we grow in the Lord.
I am sorry for the difficulties that you are having within your life being a host of different circumstances, and I truly understand exactly how you must feel because I have been through an entire lifetime of the same and I am pushing towards 60.
Six years ago when I left America on a one way ticket to the Philippines, it was a calling from God to first become His student, second to see this world of religions in the way that He sees, and third to become very strong in my faith while living through years of hardships in health, body, mind and spirit while only becoming dependent on the Father to be my supplier while growing very close to God in His Spirit of truth while having absolutely zero association with man, his doctrines or traditions which for the most part worldwide are of pagan origin.
As far as the financial mess that you are in, please know that you are not alone because the American people along with all civilization are in many hardships that are only going to get worse; therefore faith with obedience to God is very important because only He can be your guaranteed help in several ways.
Your words said. . . ‘And the one thing that I did not do was give my problems to the Lord, and trust that he has an answer.This is what was revealed to me in my dream.I heard somewhere that you are supposed to give your problems to the Lord, Pray for what you need and he will provide.'
What you heard is very true because our Lord Christ who is THE WORD as written in John 1:1 speaks these following words . . .
“So, humble yourselves under God’s strong hand, and in his own good time he will lift you up. You can throw the whole weight of your anxieties upon him, for you are his personal concern. (1 Peter 5:6-7)
Because of what you dreamed, God saw you had faith, so you were led in writing your situation and I was drawn by God to give you some spiritual insight according to His words of pure truth as can be seen in Psalms 12:6, 119:140, Proverbs 30:5 and many other places in the Bible. So when through faith you trust and believe what God says and throw all of your anxieties upon Him, He will give you the inner peace to deal with your hard times and touch the heart of someone to help you; but what you need to understand is the way that God works because. . .
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:8-9
You also said . . . ‘This is a concept that I am new at.At times I feel selfish praying for what i need and what my family needs all the time. I did not feel worthy. Over the last weeks my prayers have mostly been asking for forgiveness and apologizing for everything that I have done wrong.’
Just the fact that prayer through faith is something new to you, yet you felt unworthy and have been asking forgiveness and telling God just how sorry you are for everything you have done wrong is something God is very pleased with; and I myself having a 23 year history with God do the same always because just like Paul in Romans 7:14-25 I am a sinner.
I find absolutely no fault with the page you made for help, but what you must do is to only depend on God and never others because for six years of some extreme hardships I have never received any direct help through asking brethren for as little as Kraft dinners just for something to eat, but because my wife and I always kept our faith even in sickness, hunger, shut-offs, hospitals, owes and everything else, God always touched the heart of someone somewhere to get us through some very difficult times because we just knew that He would no matter how bad things got for us and still are in many ways, so we just continue to give everything to God because by ourselves we can do nothing.
What you spoke in these following words is very, very important. . . ‘If not that is truly ok, however, I do ask that you pray for me and my family.’ . . .and it’s because what you spoke shows the real you as a person that will just accept your circumstance while still retaining the faith to ask for others to pray for you; and I am going to with all of my heart that God reads, knows and hears whereas this world of religious people full with lip love God hears not; and these words speak why.
“We know that we have left death and come over into life; we know it because we love others. Those who do not love are still under the power of death. Those who hate others are murderers, and you know that murderers do not have eternal life in them. This is how we know what love is: Christ gave his life for us. We too, then, ought to give our lives for others! If we are rich and see others in need, yet close our hearts against them, how can we claim that we love God? My children, our love should not be just words and talk; it must be true love, which shows itself in action. 1 John 3:14-18
Please read those pure words of our Lord while knowing God’s instruction to any believers which have a way to help you but do not while also reading these additional words which are very important for believers in God to know and act on.
“Dear friends, let us love one another, because love comes from God. Whoever loves is a child of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, for God is love. 1 John 4:7-8
Above I wrote these words speak why, and its because with my own eleven free websites, a published book “Message for this Entire Human Race, near 400 posts in many sites and living a life for only God, to this day I am still murdered daily; yet I continue to write in warning all of our coming destiny because I have the love of Christ for all because they know not what they do.
When you pray to God, never feel guilty because your heart asks forgiveness and you have faith with a desire for you and your husband to grow stronger; and that is why God led me to what you wrote because a teacher I am because God has been teaching me one on one for years and I have absolutely nothing to do with the man-made religions in the buildings of man falsely called churches when the only true church are those being the body of Christ who follow only their Head Jesus Christ.
May God be with you and your family while supplying your needs; and now I shall pray for you and your family.
