Can We Talk – Homework Week #4, Day #3

Yesterday’s study topic was so incredible, and when I saw the heading for the next set of scriptures (God Uses Unseen Supernatural Sources to Provide Protection), I chose another set of scriptures from there to begin today. What I learned from 2 Kings 6:14-17 is that the protection God provides is more numerous and powerful than the enemy we can see. God’s protection is also more powerful than the enemy we can’t see.

This powerful study time led me to pray that He would open my eyes to His power at work and that I would have a spiritual awareness of the vast army that is guarding me.

False Sense of Security. Isaiah 30:1-5 brought sin and rebellion right into my face! Praise God! I want to trust in Him alone, not things and people. Don’t get me wrong, I believe that He put gifted doctors in my path on this journey through cancer. And I do believe that He works through them – and treatment. But HE GETS ALL THE CREDIT FOR HEALING. After all, if it isn’t His will, healing will not come no matter what the doctors do or prescribe. Praise Jesus!

I am so thankful for this study. It has helped me to confront so much negativity in my life in such a short time. Normally I can go through a ten-week study and only tackle one or two things that need to change in me. But I think that this study, which is all you and the Word and the Lord, engages the student in such a way that you can’t help but be changed by God.

My prayer time was a conversation about judgment. There will come a time when I stand before the Lord to give an account of every careless word I’ve spoken and He will wipe away every tear. Here is what I wrote in my journal: “I don’t want the last tears He wipes from my eyes to be tears of humiliation and disgrace, but rather tears of joy at being in His presence.”
