This morning I woke up to the boisterous winds whistling that shook the trees throughout the city. Unsure of what was happening I went to the weather channel app on my phone. I saw that numerous cities experienced tornadoes. Lives were lost and properties were destroyed. I just felt an aching inside. As if my heart felt what my mind spoke “ this too Lord”. I cannot even imagine what it must be like to contend with Corona virus and loosing your home— the one place where according to words of the social climate “ is safe”. The place where you are suppose to shut in. All morning, I can’t lie I felt the burden. I joined my church with worship and prayer via live stream and decided I wasn’t going to let this weigh me down. But I still felt the heaviness. As I sat to write a prayer in my journal. I thought about a scripture, that says “ God is still seated on His Throne”. So I turned to Psalms 3, only after reading I realized that’s not where the verse is found! But the Holy Spirit reveals to us the HEART OF GOD! As I sat and read Psalm 3 I understood what the Lord wanted me to know!! I’ll share Psalm 3 with you family!
“Lord, I have so many enemies, so many who are against me. Listen to how they whisper their slander against me, saying: “Look! He’s hopeless! Even God can’t save him from this!” Pause in his presence
But in the depths of my heart I truly know that you, Yahweh, have become my Shield; You take me and surround me with yourself. Your glory covers me continually. You lift high my head when I bow low in shame. I have cried out to you, Yahweh, from your holy presence. You send me a Father’s help. Pause in his presence
So now I’ll lie down and sleep like a baby— then I’ll awake in safety, for you surround me with your glory. Even though dark powers prowl around me, I won’t be afraid. I simply cry out to you: “Rise up and help me, Lord! Come and save me!” And you will slap them in the face, breaking the power of their words to harm me. My true hero comes to my rescue, for the Lord alone is my Savior. What a feast of favor and bliss he gives his people! Pause in his presence”
Psalms 3:1-8 TPT
What a feast and favor and bliss He gives His people!!! God promises to come to our rescue. He promises to help us!!! I’m not looking to our government, scientist or leading thinkers to solve the problems around the world. I put my trust in Jesus! I put my trust in God, because I know those who trust Him will not be disappointed. Yes darkness has gloomed itself over the earth, but I wait because I know His light will break forth ! I know that His light is shining . I know that when I call on Him He shines His light in the midst of the darkness and gives me clarity. A clear vision to see and clear understanding to know what to do and how to pray.
Dig deep to search and find the truth that GOD HAS ALWAYS BEEN WITH US. In the midst of every historical crisis, He has and will continue to be with us. Let that be our comfort as we continue to persevere through. Wherever you are personally, God is with you. When you trust In Him, He becomes a shield round about you. He takes Who He is and wraps Himself around you.
As the Holy Spirit said to me this morning, I’ll say it to you my friends “ God is still on the throne”. I’m praying that WE rest in the arms of our God. That we find comfort in Him who loves us so much that the history of humanity is His love story to Us! How He continually chooses us when we wanted nothing to do with Him. God ,who saw that some of us would reject His Son still sent Him to die for us anyways. I pray that we dig deeper in our relationship with God. That we take this time not to look to the mountain or flee for our own safety but that we look to Jesus, the only way to God!
“Yet the Eternal One is never shaken — he is still found in his temple of holiness, reigning as Lord and King over all. He is closely watching everything that happens. And with a glance, his eyes examine every heart. For his heavenly rule will prevail over all.”
Psalms 11:4 TPT
