Got our own lockdown

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.

  1. “Can you make it happen? NO!

    Can you stop it? No!”

    I absolutely love how you expressed that, my brother! I am marinating in that truth here gratefully. Amen and amen. Thank You, Lord Jesus!

  2. Glad you asked!! 🙂
    It is Apostle Paul chained to the centurion after the ship they were on sank…well actually not sank..they had to run it aground on a certain island(Malta) so Paul could heal the chief man there and stun the local people by being bitten by an asp then flinging the serpent into the fire and not dying as a sinner should.
    I chose this pic from this story because even though Paul knew at the start and told them, that he perceived that the voyage would end in disaster.and loss of ship and their lives –They would not listen. He could not stop being taken onboard the doomed ship. So he went inward….fasting until Father cleared the mess and gave him peace. The enemy wanted Paul dead of course….and it seemed that Paul was doomed, “How could God lead me onto this death ship!?”–“Why has God led me to live in Portland?!” “Or Seattle?!”
    We are not the ones who lead ourselves. We are being led about by Father. All we can do is ABIDE in him.
    It may look like Father is not leading us rightly…and we may suffer some hardship as a result…but He seeks always to glorify Jesus His Sure Word and show the Devil -Yes God did indeed say!! Proving Jesus faithful and true is what Father is doing through us as we go through our own tribulations, giving thanks to Him always.
    He led them to the dead end route of the Red Sea.
    Jesus told them to sail across the Kenneret(sea of Gall).
    God is setting up a great victory every time the Devil trumpets loudly “disaster, death, fear!!!”
    2Co 4:7  But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us. 
    2Co 4:8  We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; 
    2Co 4:9  persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed— 
    2Co 4:10  always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body. 
    2Co 4:11  For we who live are always delivered to death for Jesus’ sake, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh. 
    2Co 4:12  So then death is working in us, but life in you. 
    2Co 4:13  And since we have the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, “I BELIEVED AND THEREFORE I SPOKE,” we also believe and therefore speak, 
    2Co 4:14  knowing that He who raised up the Lord Jesus will also raise us up with Jesus, and will present us with you. 
    2Co 4:15  For all things are for your sakes, that grace, having spread through the many, may cause thanksgiving to abound to the glory of God. 
    2Co 4:16  Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. 
    2Co 4:17  For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, 
    2Co 4:18  while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.
