How am I sure it was not a conversations in my mind
One time I had this pestering voice, waking me up to pray for this lady who I met through a friend of mine. We were not friends with this lady, it was someone I met maybe three times. The voice will wake me up for three consecutive nights to pray for this lady and I prayed for her protection and to find what she is looking for and I noted this days in my Journal because it was strange. After approximately two months I met my friend who introduced us and I told her about what happened on these days and asked her where is the lady. She just stood there and cried and after sometime she explained that the lady’s boyfriend , had beaten her , stabbed her and thought she was dead. He took her to a jungle and buried her on a shallow grave, she stayed there for three days and was found by boys hunting with dogs and then taken to hospital where Ishe was in a comma for a month but now she is recovering and the dates I am mentioning are the dates she was in the shallow grave. My mind would not come up with this
Another time, I was with my daughter at home and we locked the doors as twe went to sleep as usual. At about 1:00 I heard a soft knock at my bedroom door and I said come in but no one came in,I thought maybe I was dreaming and went to sleep again. I heard the same knock again and a small voice within said wake up and pray. I went on my knees next to my bed and prayed, I slept on my knees with my head leaning on the bed that day. My husband arrived at 4:45 from his trip and found all doors in our home wide open . He found me fast asleep on my knees and woke us up,asking how can we sleep with doors open.We explained that we locked the doors as we went to sleep but can’t explain how all doors are open and nothing stolen. We remembered that the were set of keys that had gone missing long time ago and maybe the person/s who opened used those keys but what they saw or heard I can’t explain but something happened that night. My mind would not come up with this
One day I was in church service and the still small voice told me to tell the gentlemen in front of me that God has heard his prayers and they will have a son. I knew the gentlemen but was not aware that they were praying for a child. After the service I called him aside and told him what I heard.He hugged me with tears in his eyes and left, three months later he came so happy and told me his wife was expecting a child and they were later blessed with a baby boy. My mind would not come up with this.
In all this I am just saying God is speaking to all of us,the question is are we listening? With all the noise and busyness in our lives it is easy to miss the still small voice within that is guiding, comforting and providing wisdom also we must note that what He says must align with His Word.These are just three instances that I am sharing now, I have plenty which I will be sharing in this journey.
Continuing with my question of expectation,as we proceeded to discuss with Holy Spirit, He gave me a scripture to read see below and expressed that 1. Pray and Ask, 2. Believe you have received and 3. Expect to have it. I asked in our conversation that praying and asking is easy but what must I do to show that I believe I have received. He answered very simple, If a child asked his capable father to buy him soccer boots and the father has said yes I will buy them. Does it mean, the child will sit and wonder whether the father will buy or not? But the child will go in confidence celebrating the boots. The problem with you, you not sure whether your Heavenly Father have said yes or is capable but He has already said whatsoever you Pray ask and you shall have them. I made a prayer that same day and asked for healing and also quoted 1 Peter 2:24
who his own self bare our sins in his body upon the tree, that we, having died unto sins, might live unto righteousness; by whose stripes ye were healed.
22.And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.
23.Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou taken up and cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that what he saith cometh to pass; he shall have it.
24. Therefore I say unto you, All things whatsoever ye pray and ask for, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
