The two have never met, but I think his book has had an effect on us all! Now comes a series of full on Christian posts, no apologies.
Andrew’s new book is about living in God’s best, which explains and establishes that as Christians were are blessed permanently, and should be living in this, not in illness, poverty and unhappiness. Miracles are short term, emergency fixes. I have often thought it wrong when I’ve heard people saying oh, we’re relying on God to pay for us, each month the money turns up just in time. Wrong, we should be living in his blessing in all things, and we also should be doing our part, God cannot bless and multiply nothing, to quote Mr W, 100% x 0 is still nothing. God will bless what we do, we can’t just sit and wait. Any way, back to the plot.
I got to the bit about his fear of dogs and being chased up a tree, and how he took from Genesis 1.28 that God gave us dominion over all animals. He used this to counteract his fear and dogs bother him no more. So that night I took my authority, and commanded Swingle not to wake us. Believing that I must act to sort the physical as well as the spiritual, we took her straight off the medicine and put her back onto breakfasts rather than suppers. Some of you may argue, well that was the reason, but we have been through all of these changes in the past few months to no effect.
