Last night during the sermon the preacher said, “but you are still standing!” It instantly stood out to me, because earlier that day I had told my husband that I had been thinking about an incident a few years ago. I had went up for prayer during a ladies meeting, and asked one of the leaders to pray for me because according to my words at that time, “I can’t take this anymore”. I was (and still am) dealing with medical issues that regularly kept me feeling ill and in severe pain. Instantly she went into action, and took my words very seriously (looking back I wonder if she thought I was suicidal or something because that was definitely not what I meant?!) I simply desired and was desperate for healing!! Anyway, she quickly gathered some other ladies and they prayed for me. Instantly, I felt a peace that surpasses all understanding!! My situation may not have changed (yet), but my attitude and perspective about it all did. Now, years later I was telling my husband about that incident, and how when I thought I couldn’t go any further God has kept me and showed me differently! He has taught me to endure, to keep pressing into Him and His word, to keep believing and trusting for the supernatural inspite of what I see (or feel) in the natural!! I’M STILL HERE AND I’M STILL STANDING!! TO GOD BE THE GLORY!!!
2 And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.
19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.
1 Timothy 2:5
5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
20 Now a mediator is not a mediator of one, but God is one.
9 Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me,
5 To whom will ye liken me, and make me equal, and compare me, that we may be like?
24 Thus saith the Lord, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the Lord that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself;
8 Fear ye not, neither be afraid: have not I told thee from that time, and have declared it? ye are even my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? yea, there is no God; I know not any.
