267 – We Are Being Sifted
April 9, 1987
I drove into Lima for our home school gathering. A church marquee said:
April 5, 1987 UNBOUND
THAT WAS MY BIRTHDAY! I feel that was for me!
Yesterday I got:
ARISE [from the depression and prostration in which circumstances have kept you; rise to a new life]!
SHINE – be radiant with the glory of the Lord;
for your light is come and the glory of the Lord is risen upon you! Isaiah 60:1 (Amplified)
The sheriff came while we were in Lima with a summons! Dan’s passenger in the November car accident is suing our insurance company because Brian did not feel he got enough wage compensation during his recovery period. Funny thing—the people who were going to support him didn’t. I pray he will see clearly to drop the suit.
And the Lord said,[a] “Simon, Simon! Indeed, Satan has asked for you, that he may sift you as wheat. But I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail; and when you have returned to Me, strengthen your brethren.” Luke 22:31-32
We are being sifted.
