Forever I will be grateful for the opportunity to be with Danny in the hospital and at rehab. Especially since he often said yes when he meant no and no when he meant yes. And since his voice was a whisper for many weeks it would have been hard for him to convey his truth and his answers. I cannot imagine how people go through illnesses with nobody with them.
It wasn’t long before he could convey his truth correctly though. That included to me. One day I was writing some notes (I kept an extensive diary of daily happenings) and he was headed to the bathroom alone and without assistance. Now that’s no big deal. But then it was terrifying to me because he hadn’t been able to do that! I panicked! He insisted. LOL The rest is history – his story of God’s healing power and restoration.
Oh beloved, God wants you to know this morning that your leaps of faith are magnificent in His eyes. He’s not worrying about what you can and can’t do. But He also wants you to know He will be your voice in your weakest moments. He will be your steady assistance when no one is around. He will give you strength when you feel you have none. He is your shelter, your shield and your strong tower. You don’t have to go through anything without Him. You may try to insist you can do things on your own but why try? You’ve got the King of the Universe holding you up. You’ve got the Spirit of the Living God residing in you. You’ve got the Word of God for all your instructions. Don’t listen to other voices. There will be many. Let Him speak up for you when you have a hard time conveying what you really mean. You’re not the sum of your latest problem, your worst day or your greatest weakness. Even when you can only whisper a prayer God hears you. Even if others don’t believe you He will make a way.
God loves you and He’s for you. It’s up close and personal. He won’t leave you for a moment and He won’t expect you to go into battles without Him. Trust Him this morning. Invite Him to be your advocate. And then rest in what He does as you live stronger and stronger in His healing power and walk in the Light of His Power for you.
