All the days ordained for me…

All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. How precious concerning me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand. When I awake, I am still with you. (Psalm 139:16b-18 NIV)

The Lord has given me revelation of this (verse 16b) before but did so again recently to an even greater level or degree (and added revelation of verse 17 & 18)…

Praise You Jesus…

It is an amazing fact that our God has planned and carefully monitored our entire lives…

Everything which He has permitted is used for His Glory and for our good…

Always both together…

Never one by itself…

Always both together…

I am speaking of those who know Him…

This is why Paul (or the Holy Spirit through Paul) tells us,

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! (Philippians 4:4 NIV)

&

give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. (1 Thessalonians 5:18 NIV)

We are to give thanks in all circumstances because,

we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. (Romans 8:28b NASB)

We are called to enter into His Rest…

This (this revelation, this understanding) is His Rest…

This knowledge of His Sovereignty in our lives is peace to our souls…

But I have stilled and quieted my soul; like a weaned child with its mother, like a weaned child is my soul within me. (Psalm 131:2 NIV)

It covers us with His peace…

Nothing which happens to us is outside of His will – what He has already decided to permit – for our lives…

Nothing that happened to Job was outside of God’s will for his life…

God used all things which Job went through for his good…

God did not permit Job to “go down”…

God protected Job…

God protected Peter…

Simon, Simon, behold, Satan has demanded permission to sift you like wheat; but I have prayed for you, that your faith may not fail; and you, when once you have turned again, strengthen your brothers. (Luke 22:31-32 NASB)

God protects us…

who are protected by the power of God through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. (1 Peter 1:5 NASB)

This place of understanding is a place of rest…

Love You Lord, Thank You for Your care of us, in Jesus Name, Thank You Father, Thank You Holy Spirit, I love You Jesus, You are my Best Friend, Glorify Your Name in all the earth, Amen & Amen

About andrew james horton

Hi, my name is Andrew James Horton... I am a Kiwi (New Zealander), born in Christchurch (05 September 1971), now in my mid-forties (I feel so old saying that)... I am blessed to be married with five children and six grandchildren... :-) I am at present a Principal Structural Engineer, Director working in Christchurch, New Zealand... I am passionate about prophetic intercession and about revival both in New Zealand and throughout the world... I am passionate to pray that the Church, the Body of Christ, the Bride of Christ, will be all that He - the Lord Jesus Christ - desires her to be in our generation... I felt that the Lord gave me the name of this blog site, "a house of prayer for the nations - prophetic intercession for worldwide revival" and wanted me to "put it out there" and start recording the prayers which are on my heart to pray in the hope that others would also be encouraged to share the prayers which are on their hearts to pray and that in the unity of the Spirit we could participate together in this activity in different locations around the world as He leads us... If the Lord leads you, let's join in prayer for the Lord's will to be done on earth as it is in heaven in our generation... Love in the Lord, Andrew
