Today, I caught myself hearing and seeing all of things about Haiti and Afghanistan and thinking, “Man, that is awful.”, but then, going on with my day.
The Lord stopped me in my tracks and had a few things to say! The first thing was “PRAY. Don’t talk to everyone about it, talk to ME about it!” Time to hit our knees, sisters, like never before. “The effectual fervent prayer of the righteous avails much.” (James 5:16) “If My people, who are called by My name will humble themselves and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin and heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:14)
Which takes me to the second thing He said: “This is a wake up call. My people have had their security in money, jobs, border control and our government’s protection instead of Me.”
Did your babies have a favorite blanket or stuffed animal that they hung on to to sleep or comfort them? Remember Linus, Charlie Brown’s friend, who carried a security blanket? It has always been God’s intentions to be your security blanket.
Y’all, the proverbial rugs of security are being yanked out from under us as believer’s because we have forgotten that our hope, our security is only in God. Our confidence is only in Jesus Christ. There is no other foundation that will stand the test of time. All other ground is sinking sand.
So, let’s stop what we are doing and pray. Let’s pray for Haiti and Afghanistan with the same fervor that we would want them praying for us if the tables were turned.
And let’s ask ourselves the question: where have I misplaced my security? Let’s repent and replace our hope, security and focus on Almighty God, Creator, Sustainer, Mender, Healer and Redeemer!!! He is our fortress! We will not be moved! (Psalm 62:2) Let’s find our security in the only secure place once again! Trust me, God is readying us, because we are going to need His security in the days ahead.
Stand firm on the Rock! Let the winds blow! If God be for us, who can be against us? (Romans 8:31) God is calling us up! He is giving us a wake up call! No side liners any longer!! He is looking forward those who are ALL in!!! So stand and put on your armor daily (Ephesians 6) with your eyes set like flint (Isaiah 50:7) on the King of all King’s and true lovers of God, we will be just fine!!!
You are so loved,
