"You have to work hard to offend Christians. By nature, Christians are the most forgiving, understanding, and thoughtful group of people I've ever dealt with. They never assume the worst. They appreciate the importance of having different perspectives. They're slow to anger, quick to forgive, and almost never make rash judgments or act in anything less than a spirit of total love . . . No, wait--I'm thinking of Labrador retrievers!" David Learn, 1998

Grace under Siege 61: Restoration

December 5, 2011

"I see this man getting on his knees
                      like a little boy
"The LORD is going to humble him.

"It will loosen the chains that are around the church:

                                  major bondage.

"They have no idea 
               what they're dealing with.
"The enemy is right in front 
                                  of their faces.
                        They'll find out.
"God will allow it to be exposed.
"It will work out."

"He stands at the front of the church, 
                                    his hand propped on the lectern.

"All of a sudden something hits him
          and I see him folding right there--
                 on his knees
                         knees buckling.
                                 Down on his knees.

     "I see him crying--
          tears coming from his eyes--
               in repentance and shame.

"I see an arm on his shoulder.
          The LORD has been grieving over this,
                                                                    over him.
"I see the LORD's hand on his shoulder
          because he is truly repentant.

"The LORD is gathering him up
          reassuring him
                                      he will be used."

"This church will be restored."
