1st January in the Year of Our Lord 2019
I was helping at church last night in the run up to the New Year Celebrations. The Bible’s says whatever your hand finds to do , do it with all your might. With this word in mind, I set to.
I was serving tea when I ran out of milk so had to go into the kitchen to replenish the jug from the fridge. I opened the fridge, took the milk and closed the door. I then had an afterthought and decided I wanted to get something else from the fridge.. I turned round to try to open it. It just wouldn’t open.
The fridge is industrial and has a time lock on it – a number of people stood in the food queue, watching me …joining in the amusement – each giving advice about what to do. The fridge stood motionless cold, steel..shut…
You know I write… this is an aspect of my call… The event came back to me this morning as I am reflecting with the Lord at the start of the New day, New Year 2019 . There is a Word in it..!! Glory to God. I share by way of encouragement and for those in a period of waiting.
I waited over 10 year for a thing and then it came to past and all the dreams and promises were Yes and Amen.
It is the start of a New Year and you are planning to do this and to do that. You have been waiting for the promise of God, even through the last year.
The word of God says several things ‘in the waiting’. It says
In your patience posses ye your souls. (Luke 21:19). What God closes, no one can open (Exodus 14:3;Deuteronomy 11:17.;1 Samuel 1:5; Joshua 6:1I; 2 Chronicles 6:26 ;Job11:10; 38:8; Daniel 6:22 ) and what he opens , no one can shut. (Isaiah 22:22) .
I want to encourage you to ‘wait on the Lord and be of good courage and He will bring whatever you are waiting for, to pass.’ (Psalms 27:14).
You are coming out of that situation and you are going into that desired destination , In the Name of Jesus. So said, so done.
He said to me ‘that in quietness and in rest, shall be your strength’ Isaiah 30:15) and so it was. He will not suffer your foot to slip or his son or his daughter, to suffer corruption. (Psalms 16:10). He will right every wrong. He will be on time. As Pastor said last night ‘no weapon formed against you shall prosper’
The Word says : He that keeps Israel will never slumber nor sleep, concerning you (Psalms 121:4). This is our Father’s promise.
As in the industrial fridge, there is an eternal time lock and the clock is ticking for your good and for judgment. Where will the hammer fall? God has already opened the door for us through Jesus Christ , don’t miss it… There is also an eternal time lock* for judgement and when the books will be opened (read Revelation 20:12). How will your page read?
All things are happening in the way they have been ordained from the foundation of the world (Hebrews 1:10) – even some of the horrible bits. Father is on his way (his word to me, for you) and He is on time.
Delay is not Denial. Wait. There is no need to force or prise open that thing, it will happen in Father’s good time. He warns us that divers weights and false balances (to get to, or access that thing quicker ..) are not good . You will cause damage to yourself and others and you cannot force his hands.
That thing being done to you or against you? Wait ..! Understand timings, assignments and protocol – our access to, our comings and goings, the righting of that injustice – must be of (and remedied by) Him. He will do it ..!
Finally my brethren , ‘ believe the Lord and his Prophets and so shall you be established’ (2 Chronicles 20:20 ). See the door swings open….. and the light now shines on your way.
You just do your part in obedience and you will drink the milk…. and eat the sweet and the good of the land.
Fathers Richest Blessing at the Start of this New Year 2019
He calls Me
Beautiful Joyful Spirit
