"What do you want the LORD to do for you?"
"LORD, that I may receive my sight"
What is the thing that not only disturbs you but makes you a disturbance? It is always something you cannot deal with yourself. "They rebuked him that he should hold his peace...but he cried so much the more." Persist in the disturbance until you get face to face with the Lord Himself, do not deify common sense. When Jesus asks us what we want Him to do for us in regard to the incredible thing with which we are faced, remember that He does not work in common-sense ways, but in supernatural ways.
Watch how we limit the LORD by remembering what we have allowed Him to do for us in the past: I always failed there, and I always shall; consequently we do not ask for what we want. "It is ridiculous to ask God to do this." If it is an impossibility, it is the thing we have to ask. If it is not an impossible thing, it is not a real disturbance. God will do the absolutely impossible.
This man received his sight. The most impossible thing to you is that you should be so identified with the LORD that there is nothing of the old life left. He will do it if you ask Him. But you have to come to the place where you believe Him to be Almighty. Faith is not in what Jesus says but in Himself; if we only look at what He says we shall never believe. When once we see Jesus, he does the impossible thing as naturally as breathing. Our agony comes through the willful stupidity of our own heart. We won't believe, we won't cut the shore line, we prefer to worry on.
What do I want the LORD to do for me? When faced with this question and then the next phrase - "What is the thing that not only disturbs you but makes you a disturbance? - and then the next phrase -"They rebuked him that he should hold his peace...but he cried so much the more." Persist in the disturbance until you get face to face with the Lord Himself...
My answer is I want LINA's court process to move through at lightening speed - faster than anyone ever would believe or dream to be possible. It is possible because God is the God of the Universe and we are asking Him for this very thing!! He has already done the impossible and we know He will continue to do so and bring our precious little treasure home very soon.
What is the other thing that disturbs me and makes me a disturbance? IT IS OTHER CHILDREN THAT ARE WAITING, aching, crying for a family! There are so so so many others that wait and are in deep need!
We will continue to cry out so much more and we shall not hold our peace...this disturbance will drive us to persist! May our hearts break for what breaks the LORD'S heart - may our hearts break for his orphaned children...
Take a look ...pray...be disturbed...persist...cry out...may there be a family to commit to each child in need....
This email has only 8 children listed but there are so many more....Lina's orphanage itself has over 240 more children desperately crying out for love!
DO NOT stop persisting and may we see Jesus face to face...you will see Jesus face to face when you look into the eyes of an orphan face to face!
