2 Days to Innocent Man's Trial

When we got saved and offered the Lord our lives,
we didn't know what He would do with them.

Some  envisioned preaching ministries,
others writing ministries.
Others had visions of serving  overseas,
others saw needs at home.

Never in our youthful zeal did we ever envision the Lord
calling us to the
ministry of suffering.

We didn't understand that losing a child
could open up doors for ministry.
We didn't understand that going through great illness
could be a vehicle for the Gospel.
We didn't understand that being like Jesus
was to suffer like Jesus.

We might  think our tribulations are a mistake~
maybe God wasn't paying attention
or that He doesn't care.

That's what satan says.

Since the wicked one can't steal our salvation,
 he tries to steal our joy and confidence in the Lord.

Do not believe the lies from the Liar.

You are exactly where the Lord wants you to be.
He loves you with an everlasting love.
His precious Son is interceding with sighs too deep for words.
His plans are to give you a future and a hope.

As we continue in our countdown to the trial of the
Innocent Man
using the Lord's Psalms,
may you be able to rejoice with us in prayer.

Psalm 2

1.  Why do the nations rage,
And the people plot a vain thing?

2.  The kings of the earth set themselves,
And the rulers take counsel together,
Against the LORD and against His Anointed, saying,

3.  “Let us break Their bonds in pieces
And cast away Their cords from us.”

4.  He who sits in the heavens shall laugh;
The Lord shall hold them in derision.

5.  Then He shall speak to them in His wrath,
And distress them in His deep displeasure:

6.  “Yet I have set My King
On My holy hill of Zion.”

7.  “I will declare the decree:
The LORD has said to Me,
‘You are My Son,
Today I have begotten You.

8.  Ask of Me, and I will give You
The nations for Your inheritance,
And the ends of the earth for Your possession.

9.  You shall break them with a rod of iron;
You shall dash them to pieces like a potter’s vessel.’”

10.  Now therefore, be wise, O kings;
Be instructed, you judges of the earth.

11 Serve the LORD with fear,
And rejoice with trembling.

12 Kiss the Son, lest He be angry,
And you perish in the way,
When His wrath is kindled but a little.
Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him.


You dear followers have been so supportive and faithful
through this testing of our faith,
I feel upheld, blessed and so thankful for your lovingkindness.

Those of us close to the Innocent Man have been
encouraging one another to not focus on our sorrows
so much we don't see the suffering and the burdens of others.

I would love to hear what is on your heart.

How can I pray for you?


  1. +

    When it comes down to it, we all need the same things. Grace, wisdom, patience, a deeper, stronger trust in the Lord, whatever our trials are.
    Knowing that nothing is out of God's control, knowing that his grace is sufficient, knowing that he is working all things together for good to those who love him. What a comfort! What a blessing! What a saviour!
    Thoughts and prayers to you and yours during this difficult time. May the Lord's will be done.

  2. How true to say that "we think tribulations are a mistake - maybe God wasn't paying attention". How often when things get hard that we do that. However, when we are weak, HE is strong. He is refining us for something greater - His work.

    Praying for strength for you all today.
