“You Shall Live and Not Die and Declare the works of the Lord.” (Proverbs 118:17) Fear dominates when the WORD OF GOD IS UNKNOWN. Often we are fearful, confused, and filled with despair because we are without an answer. The best place to start is in the word of God. What does the word of God say concerning our life and the purpose and plan He has for his children? Jeremiah 29:11 says, “‘For I know the thoughts that I think toward you’, saith the Lord, ‘thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.‘”
God Is Always There
There are times we will have adversity on every side, but we must be confident knowing that God is right in the midst of it all, countering every attack with His word. He has not given us a spirit of fear, but of love and of a sound mind. In our sound thoughts, we can rest assured that Jesus is already proactively on the scene commanding the storm to cease (See Mark 4:39). Because HE IS THE ANSWER!!! (See John 1:1-14)
God’s word encourages, strengthens, and assures us that what’s happening today will not dictate what happens tomorrow. What looks terrible today will soon be restored tomorrow! “For all things work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28)
He Is Moving
Heaven has heard, and God is already moving! Trust in the Lord and take refuge and joy in His word. Breakthrough is already on the horizon! Very soon, the Lord shall show himself mighty and strong (see Psalm 24:8). The Lord has a way of slowing things down to catch us up to the fantastic things he has in store for us.
There is an “After This” time coming, and in that time, more families shall be united, more souls shall be saved, and the Gospel and resurrecting power of Jesus Christ will have hit more homes than any other time ever seen or heard before. The adversity we are experiencing is just a peek into the explosive revival we are about to experience.
Be encouraged. Manifestation, purpose, and promise also reside in the “After This.” Even in a time where the world seems to be in a chaotic uproar, and we feel as if we don’t have all the answers to the test. Please rest assured JESUS does! Trust God!!!!! WE will come out victorious!!!
