Discussion: Living by God’s Word

October 25, 2009

Today I had a conversation with my prodigal daughter.  As we were talking about what was going on in her life, something she said hit me like a ton of bricks.  The enemy (who does not deserve to have the ‘e’ capitalized in my humble opinion) began telling me ‘Give up, I have her now!  You will never win.   She is mine!’  I cried out to God saying ‘Lord, bring her back to you. Restore our beloved daughter.   She is drifting further into the lifestyle. Please do something!’

Just then, I walked into my kitchen and I saw it – the plaque with the familiar verse that is one of many to which I cling.  Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.  Once again I am reminded my hope is in Him and He is at work even if I cannot see it.  Of that I am certain.  Praise God!
