NOTE:  For those who are going through a real "desert" time in
your walk with the Lord, here is some encouragement to resist the
temptations that come at such a moment:


"CURSE GOD and DIE"?? 
-by Lon Mackley.

JOB 2:9- 'His wife said to him, "Are you still holding on to your 
integrity? Curse God and die!"' 

This is one lie you will hear more than once during your wilderness 
time, especially around the end of it. After all, you have waited for 
so long, sacrificed everything, and you have trusted God at some 
of the most untrustable times and still here you are in your pain 
and problem. The truth of it is, that God wants to develop the inside 
during your wilderness so He allows the outside to get pretty 
challenging and scary at times. 

JOB 2:10- 'He replied, "You are talking like a foolish woman. Shall 
we accept good from God, and not trouble?" In all this, Job did not 
sin in what he said.' 

We must be very cautious when it looks like God has forsaken us 
because He has promised to never leave or forsake us, so even if 
everything looks at its worst God will still remain at His best for us. 
We must be extra careful in these times where it looks like God 
has abandoned us not to say or do things that would be sin. So no 
matter how tough things are for you today my friend, try to bless 
God and keep trusting Him. 

DT 31:8- "The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; 
he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be 
discouraged." 

"I Am The Same God" - A Word for the Weary: 

My dear one, you have reached a tough spot in your walk with Me 
where everything seems to be coming to a dead end, but I want to 
remind you that no matter how dead things may seem right now 
that I am the same God that has been working in your life all along 
and the same God who will continue to be faithful to you. I am the 
same God that saved and filled you with My Spirit, and the same 
God that has led you through your wilderness. There is no need to 
fear or be discouraged right now because just as I have been with 
you in the past, so will I continue to be with you in your present time. 

Even as Job was tested and tempted to give up and start lashing 
out in his flesh at Me, he reminded himself that I was the same 
God that had been with him in the best of times, and that I would 
be the same faithful God to him in the worst of times. This time of 
death will pass and new life is coming for you, so rather than 
mourning in your grave clothes I would have you to rejoice and put
on your wedding clothes for surely your Groom stands at the door 
ready to come and rescue you. Continue to trust in Me My love for 
I am the same faithful God who will never forsake you in your day of need.
