Thoughts for Today
By Laurence Torr 
Whatever you’re going through right now, God is with you and is for you, He will help you through your toughest times. As You turn your heart to God and go to God in prayer, and ask Him to help you, He will provide for you great comfort, He will bring peace to your heart, and still the storms in your life, despite your situation. He will provide you with the strength that you need and give you direction for your life, any fears you may be experiencing will begin to melt away.
No one on the face of this earth is immune to adversity. Everyone throughout their life at times will face challenging times and difficult situations, or grief and loss or sadness, or loneliness or uncertainty or trouble or distress, others find themselves with no direction or help. Whoever you are, believer or unbeliever if you are going through troubled waters in your life turn your heart to God right now, pray to Him, talk to Him give Him all your problems ask for His help and comfort and direction, if you do this right now, you will find peace begin to fill your heart, hope and expectation will begin to rise up in you. God will begin to fill you with an expectation of hope and a future. I want you to read the following verses of scripture below. This is God’s heart for you, see that God is for you and He is the one that will help no matter how big your problems are. No matter what it is you’re going through. Because God is a God of love, He is the God of all comfort, God is able to supply everything need you have to help you in your life.
All you need to do is go to Him and believe and expect from Him, then you will see things begin to change. There are no limits as to what God can do for you when you ask Him to help you. God wants you to stop trying to work things out on your own, for in your own ability you are limited. But God is an unlimited God there is nothing too hard for Him to do to help you. Help also implies that there is something you need to do, and as you do your part God will help you and rescue you.
2 Corinthians 1:3 Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;
4 Who comforteth us in all our trouble, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.
God is a God of mercy, when things have got too much for you to handle and you’re at the point of giving up when you turn to God, He will help you and set you free from whatever your going through, God is able to take you out of the trouble you’re in, to the point you are able to help others and bring help to others.
Psalms 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
The word ‘refuge’ can also be shelter, God is your shelter in the storms of life and your strength He is present to help you, He is present to heal you, He is present to provide what you need, so you can come out of your troubles.
Isaiah 40:28 – 31 Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.
29 He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.
30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:
31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
Don’t you know? have you not heard that God is everlasting? God created the heavens and earth by the words of His mouth, God is not weak he does not faint and He does not get tired and He can empower and increase your strength, so you can win in your situation, God will help you, but you need to turn to Him with all your heart. If you go to Him right now He can and will renew your strength like the wings of eagles so you can rise way above your problems, you will gain height over your problems you will not be weary and faint again. You will be able to live your best life free from worry, fear, lack, poverty and sickness, don’t you want that for your life, freedom from fear?
Jeremiah 29:11-13 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
12 Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you.
13 And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.
God’s thoughts about you personally are of peace and not of evil, God wants you to live full days with joy not sorrow, and God will give this to you when you go to Him, you can begin right now.
God says ‘call upon me, pray to me and I will listen to you’, God says ‘seek me and you will find me’, search for Him with all your heart. You will absolutely find Him. I am a witness of God’s goodness every time I have turned to God and sought after Him, He has helped me, He has delivered me, He has provided for me, this is why I am encouraging you right now, God is real and He is for you. He will turn your life around, He will answers your prayers He will heal you and help you. For those who are reading this, if you have not experienced the power of God in your life, you can right now, do not wait a moment longer.
God sent His son Jesus Christ, who made it available for you to have a direct connection and access to God, Just like Jesus Christ had when he walked this earth, and Jesus Christ is not dead, He is now seated next to God at God’s right hand, Jesus Christ is alive right now by the power of God. Right now you can be set free, this is real it is not religion or a game God is for you. that is why He sent His son Jesus Christ.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
God loves the people in this world, God wants all men to be saved and come to a knowledge of the truth. The truth is that He is for you, that He loves you, that He will help, That you can have a great life now. God does not want you to go through life defeated, sick, or problem after problem, with no help. He is not the cause of the bad things in this world, God is light and in Him is no darkness at all, Satan is the one that causes all these bad things in this world. But right now my focus is on what God has made available for you today and for the rest of your life.
God wants you well and to have a great life, and it is available, by believing on His son Jesus Christ, God is not condemning you, but has made a way for you to have a relationship with Him through believing on Jesus Christ.
Romans 10:9-10 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
This is how you receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour if you say with your mouth Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, the scriptures says here you shall absolutely be saved.
If you believe this then say it with your mouth, believe it with all your heart, and as you do God will fill you with his His holy spirit, you will receive the gift of eternal life.
You have to make that choice alone with God. It is through your freewill choice and decision to make Jesus Christ the Lord of your life, and when you do that God can and will mightily go to work in your life. If you want to know your have eternal life and as the world says that your going to heaven. Then this is the way you will know you have eternal life, by saying Jesus is the Lord of your life and believing with all your heart God raised Him from dead.
Jesus Said this
John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
There is only one way to God, that way is through believing on the Lord Jesus Christ and making Him the Lord of your life.
Matthew 11:28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Matthew 11:29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
Matthew 11:30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
Jesus also said if you are weary if you are troubled come to me, if your labouring hard in this life, if you are burden down with the cares and problems of this world. The invite is to you, to make Jesus Christ your Lord, what he gives to you to do in this life is light and not heavy and you will find rest in your heart and your mind. He will put nothing heavy upon you, You will be able to more than just cope in this life. God is the God of peace and Jesus Christ is the prince of peace, if you want peace in your mind and heart then this is where true lasting peace comes from.
John 14:1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
Jesus told His disciples here ‘not to let their hearts be troubled but believe in God and also Believe also on Him’.
Philippians 4:6 Be careful (anxious) for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
Philippians 4:7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
God does not want you to be anxious about anything, but God wants you to go to Him in prayer He wants you tell Him all your problems and then not to think about them, because once you have given your cares your worries your problems to Him then He will then take care of them. And as you give your problems away to God and trusting Him to meet your needs you will begin to enjoy the peace of God in your heart.
I will finish off here with a wonderful record that will show that Jesus came that we might have life and have it more abundantly in every area of life.
John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
The thief is Satan, the Bible also says in 2 Corinthians  4:4  ‘This thief is the god of this world, this thief comes only to steal from your life, to kill the joy,& strength from your life and to destroy eternally, this thief can only steal from you, if you believe his lies. Like that there is no God there is no Jesus, he puts the pleasures of this world in front of your face, to distract you from really knowing that the true God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ is living and real, Satan is the one that brings sickness, death, defeat, wars, divisions, hatred.
Jesus Christ exposed who Satan is, and revealed unto you and me the Heart of the true God the creator of the heavens and earth that He is a God of love, and is a God who can give you the best life right now and the one to come. You can have this life by receiving Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, and you can receive all the great things God has available for you today.
The Choice is yours and yours alone to make. God wants you to choose life, and you do this by confessing Jesus as your Lord and believing with all your heart that God has raised Him from the dead.
If you have made Jesus Christ the Lord of your Saviour, I encourage you to find a strong believer that can help you and encourage you in your new life and journey with God.

Prosperity Without God is Not True Prosperity – Written Article – By Laurence Torr

Prosperity Without God is Not True Prosperity By Laurence Torr My Thoughts  About Prosperity and What the Scriptures Say.
It is truly available for everyone to prosper, if you want to prosper in every area of your life for a believer we first have to prosper in our hearts, (3John 2)that we are rich in the knowledge and wisdom of God’s word. For a believer, true prosperity begins in the heart and becomes a part of who we are to the point Gods word is living and real for us in our action and speech. True riches is to be rich in your fellowship with God and His Son Jesus Christ and with those of the same Heart This where our Joy is fulfilled, 1John 1:3-4
There are many people in this world that do not believe in God and are financially prosperous, They may have come from poor background and wanted a better life like everyone wants and were determine to make it in this world. A lot of people made it and found success and lot of them made it only to lose what they had made, some are born in to wealthy and rich families and follow on in the family business and some become rich through an inheritance left to them.
The world uses many motivation teachers and speakers and apply the positive attitudes and speaking method, and a go get attitude and these motivational speakers use Godly principles without God. God is not first in their mindset.  The Image they build for people is to see themselves prosperous, to speak positively, to be active and intentional, all the things but without God.
There are some that follow and do what they have been encouraged by the worldly motivator and become successful or improve their lives in one way or another. But what is the end results for them if God is not in their lives.
The True prosperity which has a lasting value in this world and the one to come is when a person has God the first love of their lives, they are prosperous with an abundance of the wisdom and revelation of the knowledge of God’s word built into and imprinted on their hearts, overflowing into their living and speech. A believer with the right heart and mind set, does not labour to be rich in this world, but are rich in the word and spirit, full of good works, and their heart and life  are devoted to God first.
When a believer is chasing after God, seeking Gods heart first and His Kingdom and His wisdom and listens to the voice of God so He can do what God is showing, then the blessings of God will chase him down and overtake him, they will be blessed when they lay down, when they rise up, when they come in and when they go out, they will be blessed in the field, blessed in the city, blessed in the bank, and in there store houses, their savings, they will be blessed in the fruit of their bodies their enemies will flee from them, they will become the head and not the tail they will blessed so they can be a blessing, The blessing of the Lord makes rich and He adds no sorrow with it. Deuteronomy 28:1-14 and Proverbs 10:22
Many of the rich people in this world without God are not happy, they may have the nice and finer things in life, that may take their minds of their problems temporary, But the true wealth is the peace of God in your heart, having a direction in this life and hope of the gathering together where we will spend eternity with God and Lord Jesus Christ.
The things in this world are temporal and riches in this world are uncertain
2 Corinthians 4:18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.
 
The Apostle Paul encourages Timothy to Charge  those that were Rich in this world.  lets us read this record.
1 Timothy 6:17-19 Charge them that are rich (having an abundance of external riches)  in this world, that they be not high minded, (arrogant)  nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy;
18 That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate; (free in giving, liberal)
19 Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.
Now let us go back and read 1 Timothy 6 starting from 6 -19
1 Timothy 6:6-19  But godliness with contentment is great gain.
For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.
And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.
But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.
10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
11 But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.
12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.
13 I give thee charge in the sight of God, who quickeneth all things, and before Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed a good confession;
14 That thou keep this commandment without spot, unrebukable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ:
15 Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords;
16 Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen.
17 Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy;
18 That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate;
19 Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.
The true prosperity is having God the first love in our lives, being thankful and content with the things that we have, if we have an abundance then we should be willing to share and help others, and doing good works showing our faith and love. God has instructions for those that are rich in this world which is recorded here in 1 Timothy so that those that are rich, keep the right heart and thier perspective right in this life and their hearts clean.
There is absolutely nothing wrong in being rich in this world, when our hearts are in the right place and that God is first, and the wisdom of God is followed than we can truly be prosperous in every area of living.
Psalms 35:27 Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the LORD be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant.
Psalms 35:28 And my tongue shall speak of thy righteousness and of thy praise all the day long.
I can remember someone saying once there are two types of rich people in this world, those that have loads of  money and those that have no need.
Money cannot make you whole spiritually, mentally or physically, yes you can pay a Psychiatrist, they may help little, yes you can pay hospitals they can help you temporary, you can even pay to go and see a spiritualist, but it is the wrong spiritual advise your getting with bad consequences the resulting outcome.
But God has meet every need for those that will believe Him and His word to them. Every need is meet spiritually, mentally and physically, when we were born again we were made whole in every department, what you need God can and will meet it when you go to Him, and it does not cost you a penny, because God has freely given us all thing to richly enjoy, He has given us His love His peace, His direction, His Knowledge, His wisdom, His understanding and  His insight into life and living, God is the one also that gives us power to get wealth and that is through the wisdom of His word to us.  We have the gift of eternal life, we are filled with His spirit, we have authority over sickness and all manner of diseases, we have an abundant of Gods resources that never run out or dry.
Prosperity starts in the heart and then becomes manifest as we live our lives unto God applying His spiritual laws, wisdom and principles, as we build our hearts and confess God words, and we keep our eyes fixed on Him and The Lord Jesus Christ.
To Finish this article, I will leave you some more scriptures to meditation on  Showing That when God is First and when our hearts are for Him above all else than God truly blesses our live in every area abundantly God will prosper You.

1 Kings 3:1-14  And Solomon made affinity with Pharaoh king of Egypt, and took Pharaoh’s daughter, and brought her into the city of David, until he had made an end of building his own house, and the house of the Lord, and the wall of Jerusalem round about.
Only the people sacrificed in high places, because there was no house built unto the name of the Lord, until those days.
And Solomon loved the Lord, walking in the statutes of David his father: only he sacrificed and burnt incense in high places.
And the king went to Gibeon to sacrifice there; for that was the great high place: a thousand burnt offerings did Solomon offer upon that altar.
In Gibeon the Lord appeared to Solomon in a dream by night: and God said, Ask what I shall give thee.
And Solomon said, Thou hast shewed unto thy servant David my father great mercy, according as he walked before thee in truth, and in righteousness, and in uprightness of heart with thee; and thou hast kept for him this great kindness, that thou hast given him a son to sit on his throne, as it is this day.
And now, O Lord my God, thou hast made thy servant king instead of David my father: and I am but a little child: I know not how to go out or come in.
And thy servant is in the midst of thy people which thou hast chosen, a great people, that cannot be numbered nor counted for multitude.
Give therefore thy servant an understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may discern between good and bad: for who is able to judge this thy so great a people?
10 And the speech pleased the Lord, that Solomon had asked this thing.
11 And God said unto him, Because thou hast asked this thing, and hast not asked for thyself long life; neither hast asked riches for thyself, nor hast asked the life of thine enemies; but hast asked for thyself understanding to discern judgment;
12 Behold, I have done according to thy words: lo, I have given thee a wise and an understanding heart; so that there was none like thee before thee, neither after thee shall any arise like unto thee.
13 And I have also given thee that which thou hast not asked, both riches, and honour: so that there shall not be any among the kings like unto thee all thy days.
14 And if thou wilt walk in my ways, to keep my statutes and my commandments, as thy father David did walk, then I will lengthen thy days.

Bless You Laurence x

=========================================

Testimony below

==========================================

In 2015 I was living in the States. An organization that I was familiar with in Nicaragua was hiring for their office in the capital city of Managua. I prayed about it, & decided to apply for the job. In many ways, it seemed like it would be a dream come true. Nicaragua has been a big part of my life for almost twenty years. I worked with & volunteered with various non-profit groups in Nicaragua, & I conducted research there during graduate school. God had given me a very intense love for the country, people, & culture. At the same time, there were a lot of logistical factors that would have to be maneuvered around in order for me to take a job and move to another country.

I was offered the position. Even though going to work in Nicaragua was my dream & what God had put on my heart, the date was not right for me to start the job. They wanted me to be in Nicaragua by December, but I was in a lease until March. In addition, I would need time to sell my car, & get rid of my personal belongings. I took all of these concerns to God. One by one each obstacle was removed. Everything fell into place. The organization agreed to hire me in January where I would work remotely until I could move. This gave me the time that I would need to sell my car, get rid of what I owned, as well as gather things that I would need like health records & other documents that I would need to take with me. God opened every door so I accepted the job.

When I arrived in Nicaragua I was taken to the resident house where I was contracted to live for the next three years. The house was dirty, cluttered, & disorganised. The previous people in the position had left a lot of items in the house. It was full of Buddha & Hindu status. Books on satan, satan worship, & spell casting were on the bookshelf. This was not what I had expected to walk into. The first thing that I did was take all of the items that were contrary to God & His Word and burn them on the front porch. The next morning one of the staff members asked me what I had done & I told her that there would be no other God in that house other than the God & father of my Lord & Savior Jesus Christ. From that moment forward a two-year long spiritual battle that was beyond words started. I had never experienced anything like that before in my life.

 

The organisation that I worked for was in panic & confusion. Board members constantly fought, people joined & quit the board routinely. The paperwork was a mess. There were years of accounting left undone. A great deal of money was unaccounted for. The organisation was on the brink of ending. The workload that was required of me was ninety hours a week, often more. There was no stability in the organisation. I decided that no matter what I would put God first, He had

shown me so many miracles in getting me there & opened so many doors that I was sure that He had brought me here, & yet at the same time this was not the blessing of a wonderful job & comfortable home that I thought I would be getting. I was following God’s word, praying for people, sharing His word across Nicaragua. Part of the job included running a guest house. I learned that a spiritualist group met there on Thursday nights. I cancelled their meetings. I went through the guest house & prayed in every room. I removed the same evil clutter that was contrary to God’s word as I had in the house I was living in. Meanwhile, the job just got worse, not better. People in the organisation tried to scare me. I was threatened. People lied about me. False accusations were made about me. Over the next two-years, the only outlet I had was online Fellowship via Skype. My Christian friends all recognised that I was in spiritual warfare, but I could not understand why I was being so persecuted.

After almost two years of struggling to work for the organisation, and committed to finishing out my contract with them because that is what I had agreed to I was told suddenly that the organisation would be breaking my three-year contract. In addition, they would not move me back to the United States. They would not pay me my severance. They would not pay me my vacation time. They would not honour any of the aspects of my contract. The organisation also owed me a great deal of money. The person who was responsible for payroll had not been paying me correctly & the organisation ended up owing me thousands of dollars in back pay which I had been waiting for. for months. Finally, with an entirely new board, they announced they would be evicting me from where I was contracted to live and I would have nowhere to go.

Those were very difficult days. I was confused. I had done everything “right”. I prayed for each staff member every morning. I worked incredibly hard. I did my job diligently, & did my very  best. I was in the middle of another country, & no idea what I should do, & waiting for them to pay me I had used up my personal savings. It might seem to any onlooker like I had done something wrong. Corrie Ten Boom once said, “it is in the hardest classes in school where you learn the most.” Sometimes the persecution that Satan is using against you is what God will use later to bless you.

 

One woman, new to the organisation, called me one morning & said that I would be forced to live on the streets of Managua with nowhere to go & no one to help me because no one cared about me. She told me that I would be hungry, freezing, alone & homeless. Our God is great, & our God also has a great sense of humour. After getting off of the phone with her I was sad & depressed. I didn’t know what to do or where I would go. Then God reminded me that what she had said were lies from Satan. He also reminded me that Managua was in the tropics with an average temperature of 32 Celsius/90 Fahrenheit. I laughed for the first time in weeks at the image I had painted in my mind, that I had created using her words. I was imaging myself bundled up in the freezing cold trying to survive the brutally cold streets of Managua. I had allowed the lies of the adversary into my mind and I had believed them. God blessed me by showing me that they were ludicrous, they were lies, & He reminded me that He will never leave me or forsake me.

 

I had to find a place to live. I gave the situation to God & stepped out. With the very small amount of money that I had left from my personal savings, I took a bus to the north of Nicaragua where I had worked during graduate school. I wanted to leave Managua and I had friends in the north. On the bus ride, I told God exactly what I needed. I needed an apartment that came furnished,with appliances-including an oven, that would allow pets & I asked God for a little garden for my kitties to play in. Nicaragua is a developing country & a lot of things that are available in places like Europe & the United States don’t exist here, or if they do, they are hard to find outside of the capital. Apartments are scarce if you can find one they don’t come furnished, & they defiantly do not come with appliances. People in Nicaragua as a general rule don’t bake so ovens are uncommon. I may as well have asked for a sandcastle to live in, it was just as likely.

I arrived in the small city of Estelí early in the morning. I had a list of a few places that were advertising rooms for rent. The first place I went to was a large house that had been converted into apartments. The owner showed me the room. Walking in the first thing that I saw was that it came furnished. It was not a room, but a small efficiency apartment. It included appliances. It had an oven. It had gated garden full of flowers. When I asked about pets the landlady said that it would not be a problem, she would allow cats.

 

Although I knew that God had answered my prayer, I was still hesitant. I had to have a place to live, but the rent & the deposit together would be almost all the money I had. I thanked her for showing me the apartment & I decided to go pray. I spent time talking with God about it. I finally accepted that it was the place for me because of my requests to God that He provided. I may not have had the money that I thought I needed, but I thanked God that he would meet all of my needs according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus & went back & signed the lease. After I signed the lease & paid the rent & the deposit I had $40. That was the total amount of money that I had on this earth. My savings was gone. My life in the United States was gone. I had no idea what was going to happen. I had nowhere to go back to. I just had to move forward. I kept saying out loud “My God will never leave me or forsake me”, & I never told anyone about my situation. I could see beyond it. I knew that God was, and is, my provider & my protector & I just kept thanking him for meeting my needs.

I moved my focus to try to find a job. I needed to find work, & there is very little work in Nicaragua so I started applying for jobs in the United States. I applied for jobs in Florida, I applied for jobs in Massachusetts, I applied for jobs in Texas. I got interview after interview, & they all went really well. But strangely I never got a job offer. I worked very hard applying for jobs. I tailored every resume & cover letter. I even applied for jobs at organisations that I knew and where I had contacts. I couldn’t understand why God was not opening up an opportunity for me to find work and leave Nicaragua. After doing it on my own I went & talked to God about it. I told him I didn’t know what He wanted me to do. Not only did I not have work, but my student loans from the United States would need to be re-filed very soon. Once a year, for repayment, I must verify that I am working for a U. S. based not-for-profit organisation, otherwise I must pay a very high monthly bill. I asked God to help me.

Finally, through an arbitration process the organisation that I had worked for agreed to pay my severance. It was a very small part of what they owed me, but I was thankful that God got me a severance. I now had some money for food and rent. Then I faced another obstacle, living legally in Nicaragua. Had applied for Nicaraguan residency almost two years before, but it had never been approved. I had to go to Managua every thirty days and apply for a thirty-day visa extension. When I was living in Managua going to immigration every month was a hassle, but now that I was in the north of the country it would be extremely difficult & expensive. Then one day the Nicaraguan immigration contacted me. They approved my application to become a legal resident. They told me that I had to appear in the office

the next day or forfeit my chance for residency. The cost of the residency was not cheap. I really wasn’t sure what to do. If they had called previously I would have had to forfeit it because I would not have had money for it. I had prayed about that residency for almost two years, but why would God open that door right at that time? I decided to step out & follow where God was leading me. I took the money I had, & I got the one-year Nicaraguan residency.

Shortly after getting the residency a Christian pre-school that I had never heard of called me. They asked me to come in for an interview, they were hiring an English teacher. I don’t know how they got my name or phone number. It seemed to be from God, but I really had no idea why God wanted me to work in a pre-school. Weirdly I have this background tucked away that I had forgotten about in Early Childhood education, that God had set up for me long before I had ever travelled to Latin America. The interview went well & I was offered the job. In addition, they were a legally registered non-profit organisation & agreed to write me a letter verifying my employment with them as soon as I signed the contract the following week. The letter was submitted & my student loans were re-filed & everything that I had been praying about was taken care of. Other schools contacted me, I started getting private English students. My schedule was full. I was soon earning a good income.

My day-to-day life wonderful. I went through a sort of recovery time after going through the spiritual warfare I had been in for the two years previous. I’ve never been so thankful to not be somewhere in my life. My days were just beautiful. I got up in the mornings & drank coffee & watched the sunrise. Then I went to a preschool where children were taught about God’s love & how to pray in the name of Jesus Christ. I bought fresh fruits & vegetables in the market & just enjoyed living in the moment. My kitties enjoyed the yard & garden that we now had access to. I loved the mountain view at sunset. My landlady, who also lived next door to me became friends. She is a Christian & we would talk about God & sometimes pray together. I wondered how long this could go on, I knew I could not just live day-to-day teaching preschool forever, but God just seemed to be keeping me where I was.

 

On Thursday, April 12th  protests had exploded around the country including Estelí where I live. I had Fellowship that night & I Skyped into the group that was meeting in Nyack, New York. Meanwhile, although I was far away from the main events taking place outside my apartment I could hear shooting & mortars being fired in the distance. After fellowship ended I saw that several friends had been trying to reach me. One friend contacted me, there had been a shooting in the park. Students had been protesting when someone from a building opened fire on them. The city was going into a panic. Shots & mortars were being fired closer to where I was now, and a pickup truck full of armed men drove down my road. Violent attacks on unarmed protesters was being reported all over the country, not just where I was. Another friend contacted me and told me that an angry mob was going to take over the small public hospital. Moments later another friend of mine who was at the hospital with her father contacted me. She was terrified. “What’s going on?” she asked me.

“They are bringing in people who have been shot, & people are running into the hospital yelling, I’m really scared!” I went next door to my friend’s house & we immediately started praying. Having just finished Fellowship with a group of believers I was calmer than I would have been under the circumstances. I called believers in the United States. Believers called more believers. We had a lot of people praying. While Nicaragua was spiralling into street wars, we were praying & lifting the situation to God. After a while, a comforting feeling of peace covered where I was. Physically felt like a large blanket of love & comfort came down over us. The mob did not attack the hospital. The people who were surrounding the hospital left. The streets became empty & quiet. Estelí became peaceful & still.

The next day people talked about what had happened, & I frequently heard people talk about that feeling of peace that had come over the city that night. People everywhere felt it.  The government cut off all independent news sources. The only news source was State-run TV or the internet. I watched videos, often live, that were being filmed from people’s cell phones. Allover Nicaragua trucks, loads of armed paramilitary troupes dressed in all black were going to communities & violently attacking schools & students. Crowds were being shot and arrested. Police& paramilitary were firing indiscriminately. Communities started building barricades in the streets to keep the police and paramilitary units out. When they did arrive in towns the people were throwing sticks, rocks, & Molotov cocktails to defend themselves. Street war, & violence had broken out over the entire country except for the north where I was. A week before life had been normal. Absolutely everything had changed.

On Sunday everyone was tense. People were reported as missing. Videos of the violence taking place around the country had been circulating all weekend & the scenes around the country looked like we were in a civil war. Those that were fighting covered their faces with bandannas & ski masks to avoid recognition. People were frantically buying food fearing a food shortage & business started covering their shops with shutters. The beautiful colonial cities were being burned. In the middle of the destruction, the people of Nicaragua declared a national day of prayer for the country. Churches that night were packed & people all over the country joined in prayer about the situation. By this point, I had been awake for almost 72 hours.

Monday was declared a national day of protest. Protests had moved away from the social security reforms & now were growing to protest excessive use of force on citizens. Nicaraguans flooded the streets, rivers of people carrying their countries flag & demanding peaceful change in the country marched in every city.  Almost everything was closed, school was cancelled across the country. A lot of foreigners started evacuating Nicaragua. The United States Embassy started to evacuate non-essential staff & family members, and Peace Corp volunteers were pulled out of the country. Not-for-profit organisations across Nicaragua start evacuating their workers & volunteers. The apartment where I am living, a few days before filled with Americans & Canadian, was now empty of residents.

Throughout the week things continued. The neighbourhood where I used to live in Managua was destroyed. It looked like a bomb went off. It felt as if the country was on the brink of civil war. Three days of mourning were called to honour the victims of police & paramilitary military violence. The protests turned into vigils, people wore black & held candles & flowers instead of protest signs, but they continued to fill the streets. The following week I had just lived the longest week of my life. Lives lost were estimated to be sixty or more, but no one knew for sure because of the number of people that have “disappeared”. My internet was cut off. I don’t know if it is connected to events, but there had been threats that the government would have it cut off. I went days without contact with anyone outside of Nicaragua. I asked God to help me get online, I just wanted to let people know that I was okay. A few minutes

after I prayed a friend came to my house unannounced & gave me a router from a private company she owned for me to borrow so I could access the internet. God answers prayers & I have been reminded of that more & more during these events. The Christian preschool finally decided it was safe to have class again. The morning when I arrived I was told that we would only have class until 10 AM because of a scheduled protest. In that short span of an hour & a half of class something amazing happened.

The school administer came to me to talk about what had happened that morning on the school bus. “The children were acting out shooting each other, & talking about killing.” She asked me what I thought we could do. She suggested that we should talk to the children about war, death, guns & violence. I thought about it & realised that you can’t cast out darkness with more darkness. I suggested that we introduce light. “Let’s talk about God, peace, & love. Let’s counter what they have been seeing & hearing with God’s love.” She liked the idea & a few minutes later she got a Bible & gathered all of the children around us. She started to talk to them, starting by reading from John 14:27 “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled & do not be afraid. ” After she read she told them that Jesus gives us His peace. She talked for a few minutes & asked the kids if any of them had watched TV recently. One little boy who is three-years-old said yes, he watched TV with his dad & saw the policemen on motorcycles killing the people with guns. That was the first time since all this had started that I almost cried. Many of the kids started talking about the violence they had seen. The school administrator looked at me & asked “What do you think of

when you think of peace?” I responded saying that I think of Jesus Christ who is the prince of peace.  She quickly engaged the children in a conversation about how Christ is with us. He loves us & how he gives us peace. She told the children that if at anytime they hear or see anything that is scary or bad they need to remember that Jesus Christ is the Prince of Peace. “Let’s practice,” she said to the small children sitting all around us. “I will say a word that you might have heard over the last few days, & if it is a word that is scary or bad you tell me that “Jesus Christ is the Prince of Peace”, & when you say it, remember that He gives you His peace inside of you. She started to list off words that the children had said just a few moments before. “War” she said, the children responded in unison “Jesus Christ is the Prince of Peace.” “Fear” she said, again the children responded “Jesus Christ is the Prince of peace.” “Worry” again their little voices said out loud “Jesus Christ is the Prince of peace”. She continued for several minutes & ended by reading again from the book of John. After we all prayed the bus came to pick the up the children. It was such a short school day. The school administration offered me a ride on the bus so that I wouldn’t need to walk outside that afternoon.

As April turned into May attacks on students on campuses and the general population contained. Two Universities were attacked one evening, & the events of that night were at first freighting beyond words & later so inspiring I still get tears in my eyes when I remember it. Students were holding a peaceful sit-in in their University. People posing as supporters of their protest brought in bottles of water and bananas for the students. The water and bananas were poisoned and

filled with needles. Some students were hurt, others the students who became violently sick. While the students were reacting from the internal attack on them, a group of people came in with silencers on their weapons & started shooting at them. While these horrible evil acts were being perpetrated on campus something amazing happened. Students sent out videos of the university under attack on social media. Nicaraguans seeing what was happening bravely left their homes in the middle of the night, some getting into their cars & driving over an hour to the university. The Nicaraguan people came together united in protecting the youth. People from all over Nicaragua rushed to help. They surrounded the school using their vehicles & bodies as shields against the attackers and they also started reporting updates on social media about what was happening. Every time I saw an act of violence or evil I immediately watched people come together & counter it. A battle of violence, chaos, & evil versus peace, light, & love is happening spiritually & in the physical world in the streets here in Nicaragua. I also started to see that the two-year spiritual battle that I had recently come out of was a sort of “boot camp” for a much larger spiritual battle that was now taking place in Nicaragua.

On a day when it felt safe to go outside, I went to a nearby store quickly to buy supplies. I was not really sure how much food to buy. Right now (because there is an ongoing threat that the water and power may be cut off at any time) I focused on inexpensive nonperishable items that could be cooked on a gas stove. Rice, beans, and pasta mostly. After returning from the store I looked at my purchases and realised that I don’t have any fruits or vegetables. I mention it to the Lord in passing. It wasn’t even a real prayer. I said out loud something to the effect of “I don’t have anything healthy to eat God, you’ll have to bless this food for nutrition.” A few hours later a girl that I know stopped by my house. Her family are farmers and live deep in the countryside. They brought her a lot of food from their farm that day. More than she could use before it went bad, so she brought me a huge bag of fresh fruits & vegetables. God’s provision continues to amaze me.

Looting in several cities started, although it was not the general population that was responsible. Groups of people were sent out with orders to loot & destroy property. Videos surfaced showing horrified citizens learning of this happening in their neighbourhood and people rushing to protect the stores. Citizens even started taking stolen property away from thieves & returning it to the stores. With every evil work, I saw people counter it working together to bless and protect others.

One afternoon after coming in from work I messaged my landlady to let her know that I was home, something that we have been doing since the unrest started. I got a reply saying that I should not go back outside. A caravan of trucks full of police & paramilitary was sent from the capital of Managua to Sebeco, a small farming community of 35,000 people located about thirty minutes south of Estelí where I live. When the paramilitary arrived, they started opening fire on unarmed civilians. I was able to pull up videos on social media of people hiding, using their camera phones to film the massacre & uploading the videos. Rumors started to circulate that the paramilitary were then going to head to Estelí next, fear grasped the community. I again reached out to believers for prayer. Prayers for the people in Sebeco, prayers for God’s hand of protection over Estelí, prayers for all of Nicaragua. Citizens in Estelí used vehicles & debris to block off the Pan-American highway to prevent the caravan of paramilitary from entering the city. Meanwhile, news came to us from Sebeco that the local hospital was not admitting people who had been attacked so the church was taking in the causalities & trying to treat them inside of the community church. Two things were known at this point. Paramilitary had been sent out to kill, & the government-run hospitals were denying entrance to the wounded. The level of evil just stunned everyone. In Estelí, I spoke God’s word to people who

were scared. I prayed with people and I prayed for people. I spoke God’s promises out loud. I played praise music in my apartment. No one knew where the paramilitaries were, but we knew that they were coming north, & we knew what their mission was. Around 2 AM I could hear mortar fire outside. They were so loud that my windows shook. A battle between the people at the barricade & the paramilitary was happening not far from my house. Using social media friends told me what was going on outside. The scenario sounds exactly like what happened in Sebeco, people were attacked, & the injured were not taken to the hospital. I continue to pray.

By the morning Estelí was peaceful. The paramilitary seemed to have come & gone. Unlike other communities the battle was brief, & then over. Some stores were opened & people seemed to be going about their daily lives. As the country was exploding with increased assaults on people & violence, Estelí has ben left alone. Meanwhile the paramilitary were attacking the cities of Matagalpa & Juigalpa in the north. Again videos from cell phones were shared on social media. We tried to discern where the videos were from by identifying landmarks, & then group similar videos together to get a complete picture of what was happening. This is the new news source. This information is then used to warn people in areas what is happening, & to get people in areas help. This is how you learn if it is safe to go outdoors. This is how I know who to pray for, what community to life up to the

Lord. Once again in the middle of darkness I see amazing things. If a location is under attack a video is sent out, & nearby communities are alerted. People pile into trucks & cars & go to help the people in the community who are being attacked. I see videos of people creating human shields, prayer chains, mothers get on their knees in front of armed men & start praying. Others fill their cars & trucks with wounded & transported them to get help. Nicaragua is a poor country. There is no ambulance service. The people cannot call the police for assistance, the police in many cases are the ones that are attacking. I spend my days locked inside, looking for live videos & focusing on praying for everyone involved. I find myself praying for peace, for safety, for confusing the adversary & his plans, for protecting people, their children, & their homes. Whenever there is an attack groups of us start praying for the  community, the people, for anyone involved & asking for God’s peace & love to fill the situation & drive the darkness out.

As I watch this darkness unfolding I have mixed feelings. I’ve watched people walk out willing into gunfire with nothing to physically protect them other than sticks and rocks. The country where I am living has turned into a war zone. Some days it is not safe to go outside. On the other hand, I have prayed over active situations & seen great miracles. I feel so blessed & encouraged to watch the Nicaraguan people put God front & center. While people continue to peacefully protest they write scripture on their protest signs. Many here recognise this as a spiritual battle & ask for others to pray that God’s love & light will cast out this darkness in the name of Jesus Christ. So many people here have inspired me that I don’t think that I could admire a peoples stand with God the father of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ more than I do right now.

Friday, May 18th, 2018 marked one month exactly since the unrest started. Communities have continued to be attacked by paramilitary. Roadblocks to stop the flow of traffic & weaken the economy in an attempt by citizens to force the government to step down have been put up across the country. A two-day truce was agreed upon by the government, students, & other groups to allow people to buy more supplies. The government agreed that it would not attack the people & the people would have the guaranteed right to peaceful protest if they would agree in exchange that all roadblocks would be taken down to allow free movement for food & supplies over the weekend. The agreement is made. The next day huge National protests happened in every city. People poured into the streets all over Nicaragua. On Saturday night 48-hour truce was broken when another university was attacked. The Inter American Commission on Human Rights confirmed the attack. Roadblocks across the nation went back up. Now, movement around the country is almost impossible.

One day I got a phone call from my neighbour. She told me to stay indoors & shut my door. I didn’t ask why, but when I stood up I saw out my window. Down the street were approximately twenty men whose faces were covered. They were loaded into the backs of two pickup trucks & they were armed. I stepped back from the window & prayed. This is not the first time that trucks loaded with armed men have been in my neighbourhood, but this time it is in the middle of the day. I later learned later that they were planning to attack the roadblock located at the south end of the city. That afternoon I experienced three things for which I am very thankful to God. The first was that I had several students coming to my house that afternoon for a group English class. They had just contacted me to cancel their class that afternoon. If they had not have cancelled they would have been  walking down the street at the same time that the men planning the attack were at the end of my road. In addition, someone in my neighbourhood knew that roadblocks across the country were being attacked that day so when they saw the men, the person contacted the people at the roadblock & alerted them. The citizens that formed the roadblock left before the attackers arrived. Not one person was hurt. Finally, no matter what has happened, through prayer & believing we have seen that Estelí has remained calm & peaceful. Most of us are still able to go to work & live fairly normal lives. Every day I see God’s blessings in this situation.

I continue to contact believers when I see a live video of violence or attacks so that they can join me in prayer for God’s peace & love to surround the situation. In Nicaragua we are praying that in the name of Jesus Christ the evil influences & the acts of the adversary who came to steal, kill, & destroy will be ended. We pray that Nicaragua will be covered & protected by the hand of God. We are praying that God’s victory here will be swift & mighty & that we will know that it was God & not a human act. We claim this country in the name of Jesus Christ for the glory of our God & the moving of His word.

God Bless You.

Audio Teaching The Just Shall Live By Faith – By Laurence Torr

The Just shall live by faith, as a new creation in Christ, when we walk in the new man, then we come out of bondage, out of lack, out of worry and doubts and fears and frustrations. First things we have to do is be humble in our hearts towards God, depending on Him for all things and be meek and ready to carry out what He shows us to do. To live by Faith is to have a full confidence and trust in Gods word and direction for our lives, we are to walk by faith not by sight.

In Times of Need- By Laurence Torr

In Times of Need- By Laurence Torr
In the Old Testament, there was a widow who faced a severe financial situation. She was in such financial need that the creditors were after her and wanted to take her son as a slave. The prophet Elisha showed up at her house with instructions from God for her situation and it had to do with the little of her resources that she had. All she had was one jar of oil. With one jar, and obediently gathering jars from her neighbors at the request of Elisha, she backed up her faith with actions and obedience. She followed a plan. When her miracle occurred, she not only had enough oil to fill each jar and pay off her debts, but she was able to sell the oil and live off the rest.
2 Kings 4:1-7 Now there cried a certain woman of the wives of the sons of the prophets unto Elisha, saying, Thy servant my husband is dead, and thou knowest that thy servant did fear the LORD: and the creditor is come to take unto him my two sons to be bondmen. 2Kings 4:2 And Elisha said unto her, What shall I do for thee? tell me, what hast thou in the house? And she said, Thine handmaid hath not anything in the house, save a pot of oil. 2Kings 4:3 Then he said, Go, borrow thee vessels abroad of all thy neighbor’s, even empty vessels; borrow not a few. 2Kings 4:4 And when thou art come in, thou shalt shut the door upon thee and upon thy sons, and shalt pour out into all those vessels, and thou shalt set aside that which is full. 2Kings 4:5 So she went from him, and shut the door upon her and upon her sons, who brought the vessels to her; and she poured out. 2Kings 4:6 And it came to pass, when the vessels were full, that she said unto her son, Bring me yet a vessel. And he said unto her, There is not a vessel more. And the oil stayed. 2Kings 4:7 Then she came and told the man of God. And he said, Go, sell the oil, and pay thy debt, and live thou and thy children of the rest.
You may feel like the widow with one jar of oil, and feel like digging your situation into the ground. but be encouraged to develop a vision and plan to work with God. Work with what you have now as best as you can and as faithful as you can. By staying faithful and consistence. God will entrust you with more. if you have a need sow a seed and watch how God multiplies your seed sown with Believing.
There is also another wonderful record in 1Kings 17. where there was a great need not only for the prophet Elijah as there was a famine in the land but for a certain widow woman and her son. The widow woman and her son need got met but not before she gave from the little she had.
King James Version (KJV) 8 And the word of the LORD came unto him, saying, 9 Arise, get thee to Zarephath, which belongeth to Zidon and dwell there: behold, I have commanded a widow woman there to sustain thee. 10 So he arose and went to Zarephath. And when he came to the gate of the city, behold, the widow woman was there gathering of sticks: and he called to her, and said, Fetch me, I pray thee, a little water in a vessel, that I may drink. 11 And as she was going to fetch it, he called to her, and said, Bring me, I pray thee, a morsel of bread in thine hand. 12 And she said, As the LORD thy God liveth, I have not a cake, but an handful of meal in a barrel, and a little oil in a cruse: and, behold, I am gathering two sticks, that I may go in and dress it for me and my son, that we may eat it, and die. 13 And Elijah said unto her, Fear not; go and do as thou hast said: but make me thereof a little cake first, and bring it unto me, and after make for thee and for thy son. 14 For thus saith the LORD God of Israel, The barrel of meal shall not waste, neither shall the cruse of oil fail, until the day that the LORD sendeth rain upon the earth. 15 And she went and did according to the saying of Elijah: and she, and he, and her house did eat many days. 16 And the barrel of meal wasted not, neither did the cruse of oil fail, according to the word of the LORD, which he spake by Elijah.
Have a great day do not worry, God has a supply for what you need, go to God, Thank Him that He knows your need and how to met that need, to receive anything from God requires us to have faith ( believing) which means no doubts no worrying, no fear. We have to have a mind and heart of believing, a full confidence that God will do for you what no one can do for you. Your circumstances may seem impossible you may see no way out. but God is the God of the impossible, what is impossible to you, is absolutely possible with God, and God can make way for you where there seems no way. In the meantime stay thankful for what you have right now this will help keep your focus and expecting from God. Our help comes from God, He has an abundant supply, and He is willing to help anyone that will believe Him and trust Him, follow out what God puts in your heart to do, We read when the woman was obedient to Elijah to make him a cake first, from the little she had, when she done what she was encouraged to do, God met her need. when the widow woman, done what the man of God said to go and collect all the jars she could God met the need and not only did he meet the need he gave an abundance to last them years. Our God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all you ask or think.
Ephesians 3:20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,
If you are willing to do what God shows you to do then God will truly bless your heart.
Isaiah 1:19 If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:
Like the two women, they were obedient to follow what the men of God showed them to do and they were also willing. that is all Good needs from you, so He can be released to go to work for you.
Have a great day, stay expecting God will come through.

Reigning and Ruling – Our From Seated Position in Christ – By Laurence Torr

Reigning and Ruling – From Our Seated Position in Christ – By Laurence Torr

As believers, we need to always beware that we are seated with Christ in heavenly places and that the devil is a defeated foe under our feet. No method or device that the enemy uses against us can prevail when we understand what Christ has accomplished for us and who we are and the authority we have been given to use. Gone are the days where we bow to defeat and to the pressures that are thrown at us. We are more than conquerors through and in Christ. It is time to use your authority from your seated in position in Christ.
