FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS
WEEPING ENDURES FOR A NIGHT
It is important that we are not distracted from that which Father has called us to do. When He has called you to pray and intercede it is important that you continue to do so. The battle is on and the enemy is trying to distract God's people with much havoc in everyday life. Many are going through large battles at this present time. It seems that there is extreme pressure being brought to bear upon many who belong to the Lord and it is time that we come to terms with the truth that grace is only given as each new day arrives. We are told not to think of tomorrow because today has sufficient evil.
We see this is so true as this past week's events have unfolded in the terrible massacre of innocent little children as well as adults in the quiet town of Newtown, Connecticut. One cannot wrap their mind around the evil that has occurred and we truly need to hold on to Jesus and reach out to others. We need to be a comfort in this time of deep wounding that has struck into the heart of the nation. Not only America has been touched by this senseless act but we across the border in Canada have wept tears of sorrow with you and are praying.
It is time for us to come together as one body and lift our voices heavenward to the Lord who is the God of all comfort. Truly there is no other place to turn to at a time like this. We have to move forward and at the same time grieve the loss of precious lives.
What is our part in protecting our respective nations. We are told to watch and pray and so we must continue to do so. Also to walk in love toward those that are outside and redeem the time because the days are evil. I am weeping in writing this for truly any innocence left in the nation is gone. Yet, we as precious believers must lead as light and truth and let our light shine in the darkness of this world. Jesus said, 14 “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Matt. 5:14 (NKJV)
This morning I was reminded that we must live one day at a time and that grace is there for this day alone. Manna in the wilderness was provided one day at a time and we to must daily feed on the Word of God for help and strength in this time of trouble. Let us love one another with a pure heart and be willing to reach out to others during this difficult season that has affected so many lives. Weeping endures for a night but joy comes in the morning. Let us pray that through these circumstances those that do not know Jesus come to know Him as their Saviour and Lord. Indeed He is their help in this time of trouble.
Let us continue to be on guard, watch and pray for that which the Lord lays on our heart and take time to hear His still small voice asking Father God to order our steps for each new day.
Let us pray Psalm 91 over our homes, families and nations and continue without doubt to TRUST IN THE LORD JESUS CHRIST.
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Psalm 46:1
