April 26, 2006 – A NEW MESSAGE FOR MARIA…

Dear Maria,

We are continuing to pray for you and know that God is eager to lead you to His perfect will. Do not ignore His loving voice within your heart as He urges you in the right direction. Obedience is the most important step any of us can take. Hebrews 5:8 Although he was a son, he learned obedience from what he suffered. We are the servants of Christ and if we want His fullness of blessings we must obey our master in all things. Isaiah 1:19 If you are willing and obedient, you will eat the best from the land; 20 but if you resist and rebel, you will be devoured by the sword. For the mouth of the LORD has spoken. You know what you must do in order to serve God better but it is a difficult course, so you are hesitating.

Remember that the more difficult the steps and decisions we make to be obedient, the greater the joy and peace we receive; full favor and fellowship with our Savior is restored. God loves us even when we make mistakes, but we bring great joy to the heart of God when we fully return to His will for our lives. Only when we are in the center of His will are we truly safe from satan’s destructions because we have God’s protection. Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 6 in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.

Our prayers are with you!

In Christ’s Great Love,

Anita & Lesa
