Don't Allow Satan To "Sift" You And Those You Love

"And the Lord said (to Peter), Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat..." (Luke 22:31).''

Is Satan trying to "sift" you? Is he trying to get you to give up? To leave? To get off by yourself and away from your family and friends? Is he trying to get you away from the people that love and care about you? Is he trying to keep you disconnected you so that he can destroy you, and cause you to fail?

Don't let him! Stay put in the plan that God has for your life!

Don't quit! Don't give up!

Don't give up on your marriage!

Don't give up on your children!

Don't give up on any family member or friend that Satan is trying to "sift"!

Stand firm! And don't give up!

When a family member or friend is in trouble, don't kick them out! Bring them in! Encourage them! Love them!

God wrote your story before you were born. If you've messed up it's not too late. Ask God for forgiveness and allow Him to get you back on the right path. Then, walk out that good plan that He has for your life!

Remember...Jesus has already paid it all!

    1. Dear Anonymous,

      My heart goes out to you this morning, and my thoughts and prayers are with you. You are in a battle royal for your marriage right now, but your willingness to forgive and your willingness to pray over your husband for salvation and change of heart proves that all is not lost and that there is hope! I am sending you a link to a video that I think could be of great help to you as you seek restoration in your marriage. It's a message by a woman named Jenny Speed and it contains lots of valuable information in how to win back the heart of your husband. Here is the link: https://vimeo.com/54875931 I will be praying complete restoration over your marriage, and am here for you anytime. God's got a good plan for your life, Anonymous, and He has unlimited ways to bring that plan about as you seek His ways and His Word. Have a blessed day!

      All My Love,
      ~Rebecca

  2. You know, sometimes sifting is not a bad thing. Impurities (bad attitudes, habits, etc.) can be brought to light and prayer and effort can be made to remove them.

    What Satan means for evil, God always uses for our better than good.

    "Father God, no matter what my friend Rebecca is facing today, I ask that you give her strength and hope and love to not only make it through but to do so with grace, mercy, and peace that only You can give. Bless her with health for herself and her family,
    in Jesus' Name, Amen."

    Rebecca, consider yourself hugged!

    Blessings to you my friend from Harvest Lane Cottage
