A Prophetess just like a Prophet has a long hard road ahead of them. You see a Prophetess is without honor in her own country. That is to say among family, peers, friends, coworkers, spiritual families and whoever it takes to make up the world. They face things no one else may ever face in a lifetime. They are on assignment all the time. Every day is a day of thanksgiving for them because the enemy (the Devil) and his agents are always on their tails. One step forward is almost two or three backwards. No one really understands the gift of being a Prophet or Prophetess.
What a predicament! It is difficulty filled with plight, scrapes, circumstances, mess, pinch, and crisis. In my short life I have found myself in predicaments meant to take me out of this world. How do we foretell what will happen in our lives? Even when we help others, our problems go on the back burner. When we face opposition and find ourselves in a predicament there are many preconceived assumptions that we must have committed sin. Jesus Christ our predecessor faced many predicaments. As we travel the way of God we too face many predicaments from saved and unsaved people. Predicaments make perfect practice hard for the unbeliever, but when we trust God we find that although we face adversity we know that God’s got that. Predicaments on a positive note can make us strong, but on the negative side can cause us to commit suicide.
When my husband of twenty years and I separated and divorced I thought it was devastating. I had never intended to be married to anyone else. We were married for life! My life was planned to the T and I had goals. I found myself in a predicament, homeless with five children and four dollars to my name. Where would we go? Where would we get something to eat? As I pondered these things in my mind my five sons was asking “mama where are we going to go”? I fell down and hurt myself. The Doctor said I would not walk again. My oldest son was in twelfth grade and lost a credit of graduating because he had to leave school to take me to therapy. He eventually got a job to take care of me and his brothers. As for my legs and walking God delivered me in a church service as I obeyed the Pastor and pulled myself up with the back of the pew in front of me. God healed me as I ran around the church. I did not go back out the church like I came in.
On occasions I have been off work longer than planned and had lost wages. What do you do when you lose your livelihood? I was making good money as an Accountant Specialist with the State of Louisiana for 27 years and now was not taking in any money. How would we eat? How were we going to keep a roof over our head? To be found in need of money and can’t get help from anywhere is a predicament no one wants to be facing. Then when I was put on disability it was like ten dollars more than my bi-weekly pay. I took a substantial lost in income. How would I handle this when my bills were six hundred dollars more than my income? I could not get any social assistance because I was about four dollars over the poverty level. I was in a predicament!
Margery yet has a testimony, one of grace. She reflects back on II Cor. 12:9 that God said his grace is sufficient for us and his strength is made perfect in our weaknesses. Margery began to take pleasure in the Lord and rejoiced in the situation she found herself in.
Through the deaths of her husband Wilbert, sons Alvin Jr., Alton Sr. and Jason, her troublesome marriages and divorces, her losses and her homelessness, displacements and all of her mishaps God has placed people in her life for her to pray for, whatever their situation may have been. She knew that it is more blessed to think on others rather than yourself. Lawyers she has helped through situations, Police and Detectives she has prayed for that God would cover them and protect them in their work, different crimes that she has prayed against that she never gave a second thought to, and places Margery went she would not have gone to had not these things happened in her life. Margery has been beat up for the gospel of Jesus Christ. Margery has become a more effective prayer warrior and intercessor since things happened to her. Spirits and demonic influence are clearer to her now.
Margery found that people have real problems out in the world. Many of those seemingly troublesome times were for God's glory and not to her detriment. She survived because God brought her too it so that she could go through. How do you know what you are made of if you never go through any trials and tribulations? How do you know that God can deliver if there is never any trouble? Put God first in all things, acknowledge him in everything you do, and know that he is in control and not us. Be more willing to think about someone else rather than yourself.
Margery became a strong woman of God, a woman of praise and worship, a studios student of the Word, and a Writer.
Her family rejected her because of her relationship with God because it was one of truth. She served God in Spirit and truth, refused to sin for a season, and no matter how she was thrown around she stood firm on his Word that he would come and see about her after a while. Margery had been birth forth into her God given purpose and she began to work out her soul salvation with much more clarity for the first time in her life.
God dealt with Margery concerning her life and salvation. He showed her how to live a righteous life and not willfully blunder because she truly sought him out for answers. Margery found that it was not about her, but God and his will for mankind. Deliverance to the nation must first begin with Margery and not the next person. Margery needed to line her life up with God's Holy Word, realize how far she had walked away from him and live the gospel like a true Christian that he had called her to be.
Many injustices have been done to me and I have found myself in some predicaments but now I can say, But God!
