229 – God is Real and Faithful
November 12, 1986
God just showed me (as I am trying to do my devotions and Markie, age 4, keeps making noises in his room that I am afraid will wake up Daniel, age 2—that I am getting angry in the middle of my devotions!
Dan said: “tell God you’re sorry and go on. You can’t praise God when you’re angry so you have to keep a right heart all the time. Purpose to praise and worship Him.”
This is FUNNY: I was trying to read:
So I will sing praise to Thy Name forever! Psalm 61:8
and then: Paul and Silas were in prison praising God at midnight! Acts 16:25
…they were singing when they should have HUMANLY been angry at God and been arguing with Him that they were HIS servants, doing HIS will, and needed a good night’s sleep.
Later same night: this was a day of accusations from the enemy, confusion and NOISE! I kept taking refuge in the Lord and I saw Him move, but then there I was again, being assailed constantly.
Tracey called at 1—Praise God—so I got to pray with someone.
Karen called from the west coast at 8:30 to say that GOD IS FAITHFUL. She said she was SO burdened for me today. Thank You, Lord, for being REAL. Thank you for sending good good friends who will stand with me and pray and who I can pray with in their distress.
