HaShem Is In Control
Baruch HaShem (Praise God) on this quiet Sunday morning. I’m sitting on my back porch listening to the rainwater drip from the trees. Thanks be to HaShem that the forecast heavy rain and possible hail did not materialize last night—at least not in this part of Cary, NC. I pray that is true where you are as well.
Today promises to be a beautiful day, but then every day is beautiful in Yeshua. Every day is beautiful because HaShem, our Heavenly Father, created it all. No, He doesn’t create the bad; I don’t believe that for a moment. However, as the proverbial saying goes, “There is a silver lining in every cloud.” Our Father uses every situation, every circumstance in our lives for our good—from His perspective.
The other day, after listening to the news, I blurted out to the Lord, “Lord, this must end!” Immediately, the thought came back, “But I’m not done yet!” I hope and pray that it was just my imagination. However, though I am not a prophet or the son of a prophet, I do have a feeling that He is not done using COVID-19 for His purposes. I am confident that He wants to get our attention. He is calling His people, all mankind, to Himself. He is saying, “Wake up! The time is near! Believer and unbeliever alike, it is time to repent and turn to Me because the Kingdom of Heaven is near. I am the source of your healing from COVID-19, from all of your sickness and disease, and will deliver you from your idols. Make Me first in everything! In your personal lives, in your work, in your government, in your politics. I must be first! I do not promise a life of ease, but I will not give you more than you can bear. I love you. I created you, every one of you! Turn to Me, your Salvation.”
Father, draw us close, touch us, anoint us with Your Spirit, we long to see You, Lord! We love the feel of Your arms around us.
If He is not your Savior and/or the Lord of your life, make Him so today!
Until the next time…“May the LORD bless you and watch, guard, and keep you; May the LORD make His face to shine upon and enlighten you and be gracious (kind, merciful, and giving favor) to you; May the LORD lift up His face toward you and give you peace (tranquility of heart and life continually).” (Numbers 6:24-26)Bill
Yes and amen! He IS in control
