Whatever we see, whatever we feel, whatever we think … the truth remains that … OUR GOD REIGNS! He has a plan and as the days ahead unfold, we will see what He has been saying to His people!
Do not lose heart, or fall away simply because you do not understand. In our frail humanity, we all like comfort and to know the plan, but in our spirit-being, we must hold fast to God – His word and His Spirit! It’s vital to bring our emotions, fears, concerns, and expectations under the rule and reign of the Spirit and the Word! He never tells us the whole picture, for if He did we would rush off and devise a plan to make it come to pass! His words are still true! His plan is still great! He has not failed us and will never fail us – NEVER! If we are disappointed, it’s because the picture doesn’t look like the plan we had envisioned. It’s okay to be temporarily disappointed, but we cannot afford to stay there! We must look to the Lord and allow His plan to unfold! He will do what He has said He will do. We see in part and prophesy in part, but only as the storyline unfolds will we see the big picture.
Hold on tightly to Jesus! Don’t formulate your own picture based upon what you FEEL. Let’s keep believing our God as we press on, move forward, pray, and watch His plans become clear! We love the report of 20/20 vision, but remember the old saying … 20/20 comes in retrospect! We shall find ourselves saying … “Of course! This is what He has been saying to us!” Don’t lose heart, for He still reigns and evil will not triumph over God’s purposes and plans!
I still believe the Lord will do something to lose our nation from the grips of hell and its cohorts. I don’t know what that looks like, but I know my God, and I am persuaded that He is able to do that which He said He will do! The covenant He has with America still stands! No demon or devil or even the hoards of hell can stop our God from fulfilling the covenant our forefathers made with Him.
“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, and they shall walk, and not faint”. (Isaiah 40:31). So, let’s wait upon God! Let us renew our strength in Him! Isaiah’s name means, “the Lord is Salvation”! Isaiah offers a glimpse of God’s amazing plan to reclaim His people through the arrival of a Deliverer. In the meantime, passages like chapter 40:31 declare God’s promise of provision and victory for those who rely on Him as they wait.
Waiting doesn’t mean not doing anything, or passively hoping against hope! No! It means TRUSTING in the Lord as we wait upon Him to do unfold His plan and ways to us! As we wait upon Him to reveal the greater plan we must trust in Him, rejoice and be glad in Him, pray, remain strong in our HOPE! Let us place our trust, our hope, our salvation in the One who is mighty to save us! He is FAITHFUL .. without a doubt … He is! He will NOT fail us! Never, never, never will our God fail us!
I believe we are in for an exciting and very interesting year ahead! As 2021 makes 2020 come into focus and the “aha moments” that we will come to understand most likely will surprise and even shock us!
I have not let go of the many dreams, visions, and prophetic words that God has spoken to reliable men and women who have a proven track record. We cannot afford to give up on a God who always does the seemingly impossible! I will not back down, give up, or throw in the towel. I simply am pressing into Jesus and allowing Him to do it HIS WAY! He is the ultimate example of “I did it my way!” He never moves according to our plans, fears, or expectations. He always does it HIS way and in His time! I am simply broadening my scope of expectations to allow God to be God. The One who does not work in our time is in fact, the Keeper of time!
Let us move forward with open hearts, open minds, open spirits, and allow God to frame the picture according to His plans. We will continue praying, taking authority over the powers of hell, building ourselves up in the Lord, and deciding that … NO MATTER WHAT … we WILL serve the Lord! We will arise as the Ekklesia (God’s governing Body) and move into this new era where we will not only see, but we will be a part of the greatest outpouring of the Spirit of God in history!
Let God Arise and let His enemies be scattered … as we wait upon the Lord, and KNOW …
Our God REIGNS!
