And I looked and rose up and said unto the nobles, and to the rulers, and to the rest of the people, BE NOT AFRAID OF THEM; REMEMBER THE LORD, WHICH IS GREAT AND TERRIBLE, AND FIGHT FOR YOUR BRETHREN, YOUR SONS AND YOUR DAUGHTERS, YOUR WIVES AND YOUR HOUSES. Nehemiah 4:14
GRANTED! 5 minutes after waking up this morning and hearing the news reports of the events that took place while many of us slumbered snugly in our beds, there’s no shortage of reasons to be drained, discouraged and even disappointed!
YET! Those of us who place our trust and confidence in The SOVEREIGN LORDSHIP OF JESUSmust not be INTIMIDATED nor dissuaded by the myriad of unsettling current events. We must remember that The Scriptures already warned us “THESE THINGS MUST BE “! (Ref. Luke 21:9) As unnerving as it is, what we’re experiencing is The Biblical Prophecy being REVEALED LIVE AND IN LIVING COLOR!
However, it’s incumbent upon us, WHO NAME THE NAME OF CHRIST, TO STAY FOCUSED AND COMMITTED TO THE ASSIGNMENT AT HAND! WE’VE BEEN COMMISSIONED BY THE GOOD SHEPHERD TO STAY ON THE WALL AND NOT COME DOWN!
Nah, THAT DOESN’T MEAN THAT WE DON’T FIGHT! BUT IT MEANS THAT WE DON’T WAR AS THE WORLD, BCUZ, “the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds.” (Ref. 2 Corinthians 10:40
Beloved, TRUST2KNO, I 2KNO, how difficult it is to restrain this fickle, temperamental, flawed, unruly and fragile vessel of clay, particularly when we see social injustices continuously perpetrated against our brothers, sisters, our sons and daughters, and others whom we love dearly! Nevertheless, we must remind ourselves that this warfare is not against flesh and blood, but is instigated and initiated by the diabolical principalities and Satanic rulers of darkness whose aim is to steal our Peace, kill our Joy and to destroy the Lively Hope that we have in The Eternal Kingdom of God! (Ref. Ephesians 6:12, John 10:10)
YET! We must remember, that the battle has already been won over 2000 years ago on The Cross of Calvary! So, what are we supposed to do, sit idly by while the enemy wreaks havoc in our lives? GOD FORBID! We have been strategically equipped with a secret weapon! “For God wanted them to know that the riches and glory of Christ are for you Gentiles, too. And this is the secret: Christ lives in you. This gives you assurance of sharing HIS glory.“ (Colossians 1:27)
We’ve been instructed, when the enemy comes in, like a flood, we shift to a higher standard! “put on the Whole Armor of God”! (Ref. Ephesians 6:10-11) In other words, ARM YOUR SELF WITH THE MIND OF CHRIST, COVERING YOUR FAMILY WITH PRAYER, THE BLOOD AND THE WORD OF GOD! No matter what ‘WE DON’T GIVE UP; we continue crying out to The our Heavenly Father, The GREAT, MIGHTY AND TERRIBLE LORD WHO SEES AND KNOWS ALL THINGS! TRUST2KNO HIS COMPASSION SHALL NEVER FAIL US!
Precious Ones, TAKE COURAGE, NOW IS NOT ALWAYS!
TRUTHBTOLD, THE SAME GOD WHO watches over the sparrow is THE SAME GOD WHO FIGHTS FOR US!
REST ASSURED MY BROTHER AND SISTA, HE KNOWS OUR NAME!! CHECK THE BACK OF THE BOOK…WE WIN!
TRUST2KNO, GOD HAS NOT FORGOTTEN YOU NOR ME
Pause, Ponder, Pray and Praiz!
