“He gives power to the faint; and to those with no might He increases strength. Even the young will faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; they shall walk, and not faint.” Isaiah 40:29-31
Friends, we can trust the faithful and true words of God WILL be fulfilled. The opinions of men and women, however, need to fall away. True prophets of God need to realign with the examples of the ancient prophets in Scripture: Most of the Biblical prophets did NOT offer opinions or interpretations of their prophecies! Occasionally, they were given an interpretation by God or an angel, but those were rare.
Some of today’s modern prophets have been guilty of offering opinions on what they’ve heard from the Lord. I apologize for every time I added a misleading opinion onto what I saw or heard from the Holy Spirit.
Another truth we all need to remember is this: God is not in a hurry like us, especially us Americans. He is patient, slow to anger. “A day is like a thousand years to Him, and a thousand years a day.” Psalm 90:4; 2 Peter 3:8
In other words, while we expected His promises through prophets to be fulfilled right away (I admit I did), He never promised it would be immediate, or that we wouldn’t have to go through more hardship before we get to the good stuff. We know man’s justice often fails, but we will see God’s justice ahead.
Something important to know about our Father God is this: He wants us to develop perseverance and to trust Him. Noah built an ark for 100 years before he saw the word of God fulfilled. My son reminded me the other day that Isaiah’s promises of a better day took 700 years to be fulfilled. I know, I sighed heavily with that one, too. But, he was right!
We have got to slow WAY down. We must build muscles of patience and endurance, of steadfastness. We will stay in prayer, and we will watch the Lord fulfill His word, in His time and in His way. None of us is alone. We will support and encourage each other along the way!
In the meantime, I urge you: limit your intake of news! Listen to the Lord, soak in praise music, seek time with Him, draw near to Him. He will hold, comfort, and see you through. This is not the end. There is much to look forward to…
Are you with me? God bless every dear one and grant you peace today. More soon.
Let’s pray together now, and then I have a worship song to encourage you.
Dear Jesus, we love, adore and surrender now to Your Holy Spirit. You are everything to us. Lord, Your bride in America and perhaps all over the globe too, needs comfort. Please hold her close today and in the days ahead. There is much we do not understand right now, but we know You have not failed and Your plan is still in place, being worked out. Please protect us and give us discernment in days ahead how to live, how to pray and more. We choose to trust You, to look to You, the Author and FINISHER of everything you begin. We love you! Amen.
Today’s playlist recommendation: Please read and listen carefully to the words of this amazing worship song, See A Victory by Elevation Worship. It is a wonderful word of encouragement for the Bride of our Amazing Savior today!
