When I started this devotional ministry, I can count on both hands the number of members I had. I didn’t despise the small beginning, because I was being obedient. He said to write so that they will know that He is real. And I began to write… Every day was blessed. Now, I know you’re saying nobody has a good day every day. I didn’t say every day was good, I said every day was blessed. No matter what I went through; I knew I was blessed. I knew things could be worse. Despite whatever I was going through, I wrote in obedience. And I know it was because of the obedience I gave the Lord, that He blessed me; His way, and His timing. He gave me favor one year ago and brought Barbara Beach and I together and created Still Small Voice Radio Show.
And this is a perfect time to let the Lord know I’ve never forgotten what He taught me about obedience. Therefore, I knew I had to share with you my story about what happens when we willfully disobey the Lord. Did you know we are causing the Lord pain when we willfully disobey Him? I didn’t know that; then one day the Lord allowed me to go through a portion of the pain He felt when His children willfully disobey Him.
The Lord spoke these words to me that night, and I’ve never forgotten them:
“My child, what you are feeling; this pain, this pain, is a portion of what I feel when My children willfully disobey Me. I feel what you feel; and yes, it hurts. It hurts Me when My children know the truth, and yet they disobey My words. If only they knew; if only they knew. Yes, your pain is great. Never forget this night. Never forget the pain that you feel; it will keep you close to My heart. Now, I will heal you of your pain. Yes, I will remove it; I will remove it. Rest now My daughter, all is well. Leave it in My hands, I will remove it.
