Embracing Life — Day 5
Day 5: Mercy in the Midst of Judgment
First, an update on yesterday’s post about spiritual armor. God, in His mercy, used that topic and my post to somehow prepare me for what would happen very early this morning. At about 3:30 a.m. my oldest son had a seizure. My family’s post-seizure transition in times past has ranged from moderate trauma to near-panic. When my youngest son alerted me to what was happening, I ran into their room and began praying for his brother. I immediately called on the name of Jesus and asked the Lord to do battle for us in the spiritual realm. The seizure was a relatively short one, and my son is doing better. I know that having just been reminded of spiritual warfare principles helped me fight in prayer and more quickly recover emotionally. Praise God.
