Have been on leave for 4 weeks and was meant to be back at work Monday 21st. But put my lower back out on the 18th on Rosh Hashanah. Am at home for this week as well! Then last night my daughter rolled her ankle and is also house bound this week. My wife is still off work from the Hospital all this week.
This week is a critical week.
You may think I am being a sensationalist. Go ahead.
Have you never read
Isa 8:18Behold, I and the children whom the LORD has given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the LORD of hosts, which dwells in mount Zion. ??
Nothing happens to us by coincidence or by chance. There is nothing random in the universe. We live and move and have our being in God.
And God is in all and through all.
Whatever happens to you has purpose – that is why Jesus says WATCH! And why we are exhorted to NOT WORRY about tomorrow.
Your FATHER in HEAVEN(ie, in your heart)knows what you have need of. Your every step is ordered by the Lord. You are in Him.
Why are we in a lockdown of sorts? I don’t know. But I trust Father that we are protected even as those who were under the blood in Egypt were protected from the destroying angel that went out that night to destroy the strength of those who stood up against God.
Do not worry about where you are. Do not worry whether you are in God’s will or in the right place He wants you to be. God HAS YOU. He is God! He is responsible for you! It is not left up to the children to be right about everything OR ANYTHING! God YOUR FATHER would not leave the responsibility to you.
You are RESTING INSIDE JESUS – the real you is–no matter what the outer man is worrying about.
Be still and know that I AM God
I will be exalted among the nations
I will be exalted in all the earth.
And we with/in Him.
God has sent forth His angels to you and all yours – to move you, keep you, guide you, hold you, hedge you, fence you in, move you on, direct your steps, strengthen you. It’s not up to you my friend to do all these things.
Better to trust than to fret.
A woman when she is in labour pains cannot do much for herself. OTHERS must be with her. The Lord is with you as you and I and we give birth to a new age–even as the Dragon seeks to devour our child and to kill us.
He shall not succeed for Emmanuel shall be born and HAS BEEN BORN already inside your heart. Out of you comes forth the cry of the sons of God! Out of you comes forth the LIBERATION OF THE AGES.
Can you make it happen? NO!
Can you stop it? No!
So go with it whatever your circumstance, knowing God has you right where you should be at this time and every moment.
His hand is on your shoulder. His love is carrying you. He prepares a feast of choice things for you in the presence of your enemy.
