If God is for me . . . who can be against me?

The Lord will pull that thorn out . . .

Thorn In My Side | Fancy, Thorn, Sharpie




By Cindy Jacobs



Hello and welcome to the word of encouragement for August! I was just praying and asking the Lord, "How can I encourage you all today?" I know there are so many challenges out there, but this is what the Lord said to me. The Lord said, "There are some longstanding thorns in your flesh," meaning that there are some things that have happened to you or in your family. What I see is that things will just flare up, like there will be a family fight or a feud. It just seems like relationships blow up.



But the Lord would say, "Am I not the Great Mender, the mender of broken hearts? Do I not set the solitary in families for those who are lonely?" Some of you have just been going through a season where you don't feel in touch with God. We all have that. We have to worship by faith... well, at least I do. For years, some of you have said, "Lord, if You'd only do this. If You'd only do this for me." The Lord says, "I am listening to your prayers and I am going to pull that thorn out. I'm going to make those seemingly impossible things possible. The reconciliations are going to happen.”



For some of you, it's a physical healing. In fact, I'm going to pray for your physical healing right now.



Lord, I just speak healing over Your people. Some people have had longstanding COVID battles or even just battles with anxiety. Some of you have had a loss of physical strength and you're concerned about it. I pray over minds, over brains that are having some form of dementia or whatever it may be. The Lord just says, "Remember, I'm listening to you. I'm listening to you! I'm not going to abandon you. I'm not going to forsake you." God's getting ready to answer those longstanding prayers.



God bless you! I hope you're doing well and better every day. Thanks for listening to the word of encouragement.

I needed to hear this today. Its been sooo very difficult for a long time honestly asked God if I was the toxic one and just didn't realize it so I could repent

this is so beautiful and such a testimony to the Lord's healing power and sanctification through our suffering. Much of my walk with Christ is similar to yours.
