17. ENEMIES LIVE AT PEACE Once when we lived in a certain place, there was a person living in another house close by who showed that he was very friendly, but the Lord showed me his true nature one night in a dream. In the dream, this person comes to visit me and he talks with me for a while; then when I go into another room to get something, he takes hold of our pet dog and strangles it, laughing slyly. That was all that the Lord showed me. It was a message from the Lord to beware of him because he was a wolf in sheep’s clothing. I prayed about the matter that the Lord may not allow him to do any harm to us. Since he was in close proximity to us and dealt always with us, there seemed no way to avoid him. I kept praying about the matter that the Lord may provide a proper solution to this problem. Then another night, as I slept, the Lord showed me another dream. In the dream, I see this person on the path leading to his house and I tell him that God is going to open a way for him to go abroad. As soon as I say this, his attitude changes and he is overjoyed and does a jig. That was all I saw. A couple of days later, I saw him in the same spot as I saw in the dream. I told him what I had told him in the dream. He was very happy and went away merrily. From that day his attitude towards us changed. He started being genuinely helpful and respected me. Indirectly, through his wife, he asked for our prayers and was a changed man altogether. I often marvel about the wonderful things that our Lord can achieve through small things. A few right words to this man changed his attitude towards us. What I told him about his going abroad was also fulfilled in due time. Praise the Lord. When a man's ways are pleasing to the Lord, he makes even his enemies live at peace with him. (Proverbs 16:7) 18. THE GOD OF ABRAHAM There above it stood the Lord, and he said: I am the Lord, the God of your father Abraham and the God of Isaac. I will give you and your descendants the land on which you are lying. (Genesis 28:13) It was a time of fresh spiritual lows in my life. Many distressing situations coming one after the other. One night I just woke up and instead of praying or praising God, I just sat on my bed, thinking of all the problems in my life. I just sat brooding, feeling sad, contemplating the situations. It must have been quite a while, but then I heard the unmistakable voice of my Savior Jesus speaking clearly to me saying, "I am the God of Abraham." It startled me and I sat upright thinking that there was more to come from the Lord, as He often speaks to me; but this night, it was just those few words, "I am the God of Abraham" That set me thinking. Surely and truly, Jesus was involved in all my problems, as He was with Abraham's. Abraham had quite a few spiritual lows in his life (not fully trusting God and taking
Hagar as wife and all the ensuing problems, telling Pharaoh in Egypt and Abimelech in Gerar that Sarah was his sister to escape death at their hands, being left with a desert land when Lot chose the plain of Jordan[to name a few]) Yet God was with him through all things, never leaving him nor forsaking him. By telling me that He is the God of Abraham, God was affirming the truth to me once again that “as He was with Abraham, so He was with me.” And you who read this, be assured that you are not alone in your daily struggles; your Lord Jesus is with you. The Lord appeared to us in the past, saying: "I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with loving-kindness. (Jeremiah 31:3) 19. PRAISE WORKS In 1996, for 3 months I suffered greatly from a chest ailment. It all started with an allergy to petrol fumes which made me breathless with a feeling of tightness in the chest. This increased rapidly with allergy to other smells too and day in and day out I used to feel breathless. To add to this I had a problem of acidity in my stomach. I did not have peace of mind and had very little sleep. I could not work properly at the clinic and could hardly preach. The suffering was terrible. I got some relief from my chest problem on having medicines but the medicines increased the problem in my stomach. This made me quit taking medicines. I prayed and fasted but to no avail. The problem persisted and increased. After one month of suffering thus, one night as I prayed, the Lord spoke to me saying, “You will suffer from these sicknesses for 3 months. After that I will heal and deliver you totally.” Another 2 months of suffering! I became dejected, but there seemed to be a glimmer of hope. I waited expectantly for the next two months to get over. The sickness had started on September 16. I kept praying and reminding God often, “Lord remember your promise, you must heal me on December 16th” The next two months were difficult to get through. It was by sheer grace that I made it to December 16th. Here was the day that I waited for so anxiously. December 16th came and went but I did not receive the healing. On 17th I was at my wits end. Anger and grief flooded me. I told the Lord, “Look Jesus, you said 3 months and now my condition is just the same!” That night as I sat to pray, I heard the still small voice of the Lord say, “You have forgotten to praise me all the time that you were sick”. It was around 11.00 p. m. that I heard the Lord say
