Matthew 19.29 "And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name's sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life." I had been praying for over four years for a larger place for my children and I to live. The Lord had spoke to my heart and said he would answer this prayer. Days passed, weeks passed, months passed, and a few years passed yet I still believed that the Lord would do as he had said. Finally, one day (and it came to pass), the Lord spoke to me and said, "Go over to the corner of your Mama's property and start cleaning up the fence row. You will be moving over there shortly." I had no financial means to build a house or buy a mobile home, yet I believed it would be like the Lord had spoken. I began to clean up the property. One of my brother-in-laws came by and asked, "What are you doing?" I replied, "I am cleaning up this spot, I will be moving here. The Lord has spoken." He laughed and said, "You don't have any money---there is no way." Well, a few months later, the Lord supplied the money; I bought a double wide mobile home, and moved to the spot where the Lord had said I was to move. Finally, I had my own bedroom. I was a single parent and we had only two bedrooms in our previous home. My two daughters had one bedroom, and my son had the other. I had been sleeping on the couch for four years. Made me appreciate a good bed to sleep in, and I really was thankful to the Lord for answering my prayers in such a marvelous way. After we had lived there for about four years, the Lord spoke to me and said, "I want you to move to town for awhile. I have some work for you to do there. Sell your place (it included one and a quarter acres) to your nephew." I replied, "Okay, Lord, but he will have to come and ask me, I won't say a word to anyone about selling." Two days later, I was sitting on my back porch and here came my nephew walking down the lane. He came up to me and said, "Uncle Irvin, I was thinking about something. If you ever decided to sell your place, I would like to buy it." I said, "Okay, sold." My nephew bought it just like the Lord had spoken. I moved to town where the Lord used me in many ways, including leading one of my neighbors to the Lord right before he died. When I moved to town, the Lord had told me I would be moving back to my Mama's property (a different spot) after a season in town. I went to the property, put down a well, and built a barn on the spot where the Lord showed me. Three and a half years later, I moved back. I now have five and a half acres and a better home than I had before. My nephew still has the place he bought from me, and two of my sisters live nearby. The Lord cares where you live. Jeremiah 32.8 "So Hanamel mine uncle's son came to me in the court of the prison according to the word of the Lord, and said unto me, Buy my field, I pray thee, that is in Anathoth, which is in the country of Benjamin: for the right of inheritance is thine: buy it for thyself. Then I knew that this was the word of the LORD." Copyright 2005 Irvin L. Rozier
