by David Wilkerson
I had an unusual experience while in meditation with the Lord. His still, small voice asked me, "David, do you still believe?"
"Do you still believe I love you unconditionally? That you are being led by my Holy Spirit? That I bottle every tear you shed? That you are right now—in this place, in this very hour—in my perfect will?
"Do you still believe all things work together for good to them that love me? That I hear your prayers, even when you have no audible words to express them? Even when all seems dark and you are overwhelmed? Even when fear lays hold of your mind and soul? Even when it seems I have shut the heavens to you?
"David, do you still believe I feed all living things: the fish of the sea, the cattle, the fowl, all creeping things? Do you still believe I count every hair on your head—that I take note of every fallen bird on the face of the earth? Do you truly believe that?
"Do you still believe—even when death comes to your loved ones? Do you still believe what you have testified: that I give comfort and strength to face even the grave?
"Do you still believe I love you—that I forgive all your past sins, present sins and even all future sins if you will rest and trust in me? Do you believe I understand when Satan sends his messengers against you to implant doubts, lies, fears, blasphemies, despair?
"Do you still believe you are in the palm of my hand—that you are more precious than gold to your Savior? That eternal life is your future—that there is no power that can pluck you out of my hand? That I still am touched by every infirmity and affliction you endure? Do you still believe these things are true?"
My answer is emphatically, "YES! Yes, Lord, I still believe it all and more—much more!"
Read all of Psalm 103. Ask yourself, "Do I still believe it? All of it?" Beloved, keep yourself in the powerful, mighty, wondrous love of God.
Thank you for remembering our ministry worldwide to the poor, the needy, the widowed and the fatherless.
