7 “For a mere moment I have forsaken you, but with great mercies I will gather you.
Today’s Inspiration: Irrespective of what we are going through, we must remember that God never abandon us forever. Isaiah 54:7. This is in view that God’s everlasting love for you will not be shaken nor His covenant of peace be removed as His compassion for you will last forever. Isaiah 54:10. Inner calmness and peace are what we needed at this moment where everything comes to a standstill or when we are in crisis. Panic, fear and worry will not bring us out of our distress. Only faith can empower us to outwit our common enemy – principalities.
This global crisis is the demonstration of God’s purpose of reviving the Nations through unity and love – the two foundation stones of the Holy Spirit which we studied in last module in the School of the Holy Spirit.
As believers we do not boast what we could do but boast of the marvelous deeds of the Lord.
The fear of the Lord has been emphasised throughout scriptures. Isaiah 11:2 also stressed the spirit of the fear of the Lord be upon us as it was with Jesus and to delight in the fear of the Lord in Isaiah 11:3. We should not judge by what we see with our eyes nor decide by what we hear but with righteousness and Justice in v4.
Also we need to know if the school of remembrance has recorded our name. This scroll will record the names of those who fear the Lord and honors His name. Malachi 3:16. Only those whose names are in it are His treasured possession. The one who fear Him will be the ones who revere His name. Those who revere His name will receive healing, strength and vitality and will have Dominion over the enemies. Malachi 4:2-4.
God has given us Dominion in Genesis 1:28 when He created man and empower us to tread on scorpions and serpents and to overcome all the powers of the enemy. Nothing will harm us. Luke 10:18-19.
With all these empowerment, why should we fear? We are to be the light of the world to enlighten the dark world. There are so many spiritual gifts for us to apply as weapons of warfare and one of the greatest gifts of weapons of warfare is our proclaiming of His word to the world that will cause the enemy to flee. If we all proclaim in one unity for corona virus to be wiped off from the land He will do it provided if we have a pure heart and clean hands. Do we have a pure heart and clean hands to destroy the enemy? We also need to ask God to summon His angels to fight with us through the working of miracles. When His presence is magnified in our land, the working of miracles, another great weapon, will be in operation. It’s time to sanctify all our hearts wholly and blameless as a Body to see the enemy corona virus wiped out from this land. 1 Thessalonians 5:23.
2020 being a new decade means new purposes of God and new plans to prepare for His second coming as all events are signs of His second coming drawing closer. We must double up our time to build our relationship with Him. God be praised.
