There has never been a time where the Lord didn't provide for me. Never, did He not come through for me, even when my faith was being tested. There were times when it seemed like my prayers weren't being answered and my situation wouldn't end. It was then, the Lord was stretching my Spiritual muscles and building a faith in me that could withstand the Fire. I didn't become knowledgeable in the Bible overnight it took years of studying God word and hiding it in my heart. There were many nights I prayed from sunset to sunrise, engaged in spiritual warfare on the battlefield. Where my faith was being tested by fire. Nothing about my life has ever been easy, but the HolySpirit has taught me over the years. How to become balanced and enjoy my life even while going through Spiritual warfare. I thank God for the rocks that hurt my feet because it taught me to never stop climbing. There is a Higher Place in God and the only way to reach it is to keep on Climbing. Prophetess Kimmoria N. Thomas.
