Panic Room

Recently I read that for every soldier engaged on the front line there are seven to provide back up support, keeping the supply lines open and caring for the wounded. This is true in spiritual warfare too. Backup prayer support for those engaged in a struggles provides victory and strength. I felt the same happening for me. Thank you for your prayers and good wishes my friends.
People offered me all kinds of worldly advice on how to deal with these men, wanting me to react in a strong provocative way, but I resisted all that. I said ;No I will only say peaceful things. I will not pour oil into the fire. They said call us if trouble brews up and we will come to your rescue with other people. I But I did not have to press that button to. God is my panic room. The Rock in which I hide.
I waited for this man to arrive at the appointed hour, but he did not turn up. He got his answers yesterday and maybe does not want further clarification. I had also prepared lunch for him as he had indicated that would like to have lunch with us.
Anyway we were in the watchtower.
After waiting for 45 minutes my mother calmly announced that they will not come. The men live in different cities. I still had a 10 % doubt. A friend called to enquire about our well being . I said we were fine. H e offered the same worldly advice which I refused.
Afterwards mother and I watched a stand -up comedy show and laughed aloud. And when I mentioned our visitor who faile d to turn up my mother said;Are you still thinking about him? He will not come '. That put an end to it.
Thank you for your prayers my friends.
Give yourselves humbly to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.

I found grace and mercy in the time of need.

In the evening I went to visit a relative on her birthday and on the way home bought a take away aromatic chicken pilaf dish for mama and me

God is our refuge, our protector in time of need. And He gave you the right words to say to these men. Isn't God awsome!


Amrita, I'm not sure what was going on, but I'm thankful God protected you.

Yes, you are always in our prayers knowing full well the struggles you are undergoing. It is great that you did not accept the suggestions of some people to resort to the worldly ways but instead entrust your fate to God. The Bible says, "Do not be overcome by evil but overcome evil with good" (Romans 12:21). And, "The Lord will rescue me from every evil attacks and will bring me to His heavenly kingdom." Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.

Just found your blog. I just thought of the verse that says: Be Still and know that I am God.

God is still on throne and there is nothing we can do sometimes but pray and truly leave it to God.

You did good so now just leave it to God.

Amrita said...

Hi Amrita:)

It is saddening and worrying to read that you and your mother were bullied by five burly men. I can understand the tension and fear you must have had. But it is also wonderful that you tackled the situation very well. I can also understand that you and your mother would have been under tension expecting the arrival of the man next day. But God always works in different ways and a major problem has been averted. May God be praised.

This reminds me of my mother in law who passed away at ripe age of eighty six. When ever there was problem in the house, she would say- THERE IS NEVER A DULL MOMENT. She never looked stressed even in the most difficult situations. I have seen her reciting the rosary most of the time and I suppose she derived immense courage from saying the rosary.

My prayers and best wishes to you and your wonderful mother.
