In The Presence of the Almighty

I started this journal to express the many ways my life has been touched since I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord. I hope to share joys, struggles, testimonies and anything I might receive from the Lord. My prayer is that anyone who reads my entries may receive in a way that is necessary for where they are at in life. May the power of the Holy Spirit fill you as you come along my journey.

Off the Rollercoaster

A friend of mine reminded me that I should be treating this blog like a journal. There are many wonderful and challenging things I have been meaning to write about, but have not made the time.

This weekend was a time of happiness, sadness, reflection and direction. The Lord has been teaching me so much in a little time. I have decided to take a step back from the business of my life and pour myself into the Lord. This is another period to humble myself before Him. I also feel to enter into a period of intercession for the 'Street Church' ministry.

NASB:
Pro 22:24 Do not associate with a man given to anger; Or go with a hot-tempered man,
Pro 22:25 Or you will learn his ways And find a snare for yourself.


There are many areas in scripture that talk about anger. I could not find the scripture or version that says a man with a spirit of anger will defile you. This verse was the closest I could find. The word learn here can also mean to utter. Therefore the teaching is pretty clear: when associating with someone of such a disposition, you will and can be affected. I noticed lately that I have been more prone to bouts of anger and irritation. Not only that, but so have some brothers and sisters around me. This is not the fruit of the Spirit. Friends of mine suggested there was a root of anger that had infiltrated itself in amongst our ministry.

After much prayer, I realize where this root is coming from. There is an individual amongst our group that needs serious deliverance ministry. I am praying for the Lord's intervention as soon as possible. If you are reading this, I would ask for your prayers.

I do not know how many will read this post or respond as I am not writing regularly now. If you have dealt with such a situation in your ministry, I would like to hear your stories and how the Lord helped you.
