Jesus has the redemptive answer to all circumstances.
We have permission to go to the Father and He will put us into the position to discern the solution too.
Let us Pray for divine wisdom.
When we feel the presence of the Holy Spirit upon us it is a time to decree it out loud. “The spirit of the Lord is upon me” and then allow God to lift the veil from our eyes so the we might perceive what comes from Him and what from the enemy.
It is rare that we will be given the whole picture but we will be given enough to obey or to move forwards in hope.
To face deception and not be distracted to a place of fear or hopelessness.
When we feel the weightiness of the situation we feel an urgency to do something about it .
It is vital for us to see God’s heart, feel the pulse and beat within it, or we will think in our own understanding or under the deception of the enemy.
God is in control of the narrative but we have to face deception daily.
Let us pray for divine wisdom for our leaders not to disciple our nations into the world’s view.
We and they need discipling into Christ’s view, the way of the Kingdom.
The media is paid to distract and create fear.
It projects its own worldly view before our eyes and we would be wise to discern it, not with our own eyes but with those unveiled by God.
Or avoid it, by enlarge and focus on the knowledge that Christ has the redemptive answers to all circumstances and draw alongside what He is doing.
The Lord often exposes things to shed light upon them.
When we see what He is exposing we can align our praying with His purposes.
How many circumstances in today’s season have we heard it said in passing. “It needs a Miracle”?
God is the God of miracles and we can be part of them.
Now is a time when we either feel our hearts burning and we need to keep that faith fanned alive or a time when we feel defeated and like running away and we need to stay strong and stand firm.
Now is a time for protecting and rebuilding. A time for praying without ceasing.
Regardless of how big a mess a person, a city or a nation is in God has the redemptive solution. Christ has all authority over all.
Nehemiah rebuilt the walls of Jerusalem in 52 days by listening to God and obeying Him.
It was a miracle.
He used every family to do their part of the wall that was their boundary. Therefor the burden was equally shared by many. Because it affected them and theirs they were motivated to do it well and because God was in it it was successful.
They shared resources so that those without had, no one was left Weak or unable due to Poverty or sickness.
They used what they had, the rubble of the broken walls.
They shared responsibility in some building and others protecting and guarding.
Also in shifts so that no one burnt themselves out. They slept in their work clothes so that they were always ready.
Some it is said built with one hand and had a sword by their side always which symbolises them praying continually to guard as well as toiling to build.
Nehemiah refused 10 times to be distracted from what he was doing and had set his sights upon.
He focused on what God had assigned not the enemies distractions.
Take these measures as symbolic to what God can use us for and do in acceleration in this season and the story becomes a blueprint for what is possible in our crisis time.
Even the final chapters of Nehemiah seem to speak with new significance when it talks of the joy and the praise given up and the perception of the victory.
This is our new hope in our present season.
The illustration shows us feeling God’s heart. Feeling it’s beat and pulse in every situation to submit and align.
To trust and obey.
Two scriptures that come to mind:
“Know that wisdom is such to your soul; if you find it, there will be a future, and your hope will not be cut off.”Proverbs 24:14 ESV
“But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.”John 1:12-13 ESV
