It is time to stand on God’s promises. Press in and get under His wing. He said He will never leave us nor forsake us. Stand for the truth – there is a Jesus, our Savior. He is the son of God. He died on the cross and said ‘it is finished’. God will fight for us and give us strength to endure. When we are weak, He is strong. He has shown us many times that He has taken care of His people in times of trouble, and He has not stopped. We have to stand on what we know now and not what we think. Have no fear.
I saw a scary time in my life with my first mini-stroke. I walked into the ER and asked ‘well, what do You think of this’? I opened the bible on a table and was a Isaiah 43:2. It reads – When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.
That was His promise to me, and with that, He carried me through.
We are coming into a time that is unchartered territory for most. But though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, His unfailing love for us will not be shaken or His covenant of peace be removed.
He tells us that no weapon forged against us will prevail. No one can take away what He has given us. Press in with fasting and prayer. He gave me Isaiah 58 in 2015. He gave it to me twice before I realized he was telling me to read it and hold it dear to my heart.
Seek His face and ask Him your questions. Do not depend on man to give you the answers. We confess our sins and He is faithful and just to forgive. He will hold us in His righteous right hand and never leave us. Do not be afraid nor discouraged. This is not our home. We are just passing through.
God bless you and your family. We all have family of the blood and of the heart. God knows what is near and dear to us. I opened my bible to read the other day and was at Jeremiah 39. I read – Behold, I will bring my words upon this city of evil, and not for good; and they shall be accomplished in that day before thee. But I will deliver thee in that day, saith the Lord; and thou shalt not be given into the hand of the men of whom thou art afraid. For I will surely deliver thee, and thou shalt not fall by the sword, but thy life shall be for a prey unto thee: because thou hast put thy trust in me, saith the Lord. I knew He was speaking to me in this time from a message given in a time long ago.
Trust in the Lord and the Holy Spirit will lead and guide you. Look up to no man, no politician, none other than the Lord. Look up and trust in Him. He will lead you to where you need to go, what you need to do, and what you need to say. Total trust in Him makes all fear flee. No debate and no strife, just total trust in the Lord.
God bless you is my prayer. Stay strong in the Lord for He alone is our sovereign God.
