After blessings comes the battle…

ID-10021703

The time of testing that distinguishes and greatly enriches a person’s spiritual career is not an ordinary one but a period when it seems as if all hell were set loose.

It is a time when we realize our soul is caught in a net, and we know God is allowing us to be gripped by the devil’s hand.

Yet it is a period that always ends in certain triumph for those who have committed the keeping of their souls to God.

And the testing “later on…produces a harvest of righteousness and peace” {Hebrews 12:11} and paves the way for the thirtyfold to one hundredfold increase that is promised to follow. {see Matthew 13:23}
~Aphra White from Streams in the Desert

Trusting God as the battle rages. You, too?

Join us and keep holding His hand as we BREAKOUT of all that holds us back…

He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God; many will see and fear and will trust in the LORD. How blessed is the man who has made the LORD his trust, and has not turned to the proud, nor to those who lapse into falsehood.
Psalm 40:3-4

  1. “It is a glorious thing to know that your Father God makes no mistakes in directing or permitting that which crosses the path of your life. It is the glory of God to conceal a matter. It is our glory to trust Him, no matter what.” – Joni Eareckson Tada

    Praying and fighting along side you!

  2. God is really helping me right now break out of some tough strongholds. He is helping me to depend on Him. It’s a long and painful process and yet it is full of peace and joy!

    That’s God! How awesome is HE!

  3. Aphra White’s quote was taken from February 3 devotion in Streams in the Desert by Mrs. Chas. E. Cowman. Wonderful book that I recommend to everyone; it’s much more powerful that the bits being quoted here. How many people are missing out on this wonderful book because attribution wasn’t listed?
