Witness Him Now
The most important thing I have learned in the last couple of years is that God is at the head of the enemy army. I first saw this in Joel the second chapter where it talks about an army that marches forth without breaking ranks. They dodge every weapon. They climb over every wall and into every window in every house in every city. It is like the garden of Eden in front of them, but a desolate... wasteland behind. This is the enemy army that has invaded everyone of our homes. We can see it in our children and our spouses and in the mirror. What was amazing was that God said that He was at the head of the column of this army. I said, "WHAT?"
Then scripture after scripture flooded my mind. "All things work together for good to them who love God and are called according to His purpose." "In everything give thanks for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you." "Take every hardship as discipline from God. For who God loves, He disciplines." Then God took me to Leviticus 26 and Deuteronomy 28. God gives the rewards, and God gives the punishment.
WHAT A RELIEF! I know and trust the heart of my Father. He is good, and His plans are good, plans to prosper and not to harm, plans to give us hope and a future. So now I can rest. I will let my God deal with me. I will open my heart wide to Him so that He can heal me, and I will submit every part of myself to His will. I will hold nothing back. I will let Him deal with everyone of my fears and worries and insecurities and anxieties and frustrations. I will let Him have His way until all that is left is peace. I will then let this peace guide me straight into His arms. Our God is so good, and He loves us so!
The scripture says, "May you prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers."
