I want to write to encourage you quickly what I have heard the LORD saying in prayer this week to me and to all His people, His church!
The words from Psalm 125:
“As the mountains SURROUND Jerusalem, so the LORD SURROUNDS His people now and forevermore.”
What a picture! What a strong encouragement from the Lord.
The Holy Spirit fell on these words, and emphasized the faithfulness of the LORD to cover His people on every side like a shield and protective barrier.
These words about the Lord being a protective barrier are also found in PSALM 91.
“Surely He will save you from the fowlers snare (enemys trap) and from the deadly pestilence (translates disease)
He will cover you with His feathers and under his wings you will find refuge (safe haven)
His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart (translates to protective barrier!)
Amen, praise God! Church, we truly have nothing to fear! Our God is faithful!
For some time now the LORD has been speaking again & again to me about HIS FAITHFULNESS!
He is faithful to every single word! Amen! This should build our confidence and absolute faith in who He is to us.
Root yourself in His Words. Let His peace overwhelm you and bring you rest.
I felt so much of His presence of strength and peace on these words:
“THE LORD IS OUR PERFECT HEALTH, THE LORD IS OUR PERFECT STRENGTH, THE LORD IS OUR PERFECT PEACE”.
LOOK TO HIM, TRUST IN HIM and DECLARE CONFIDENTLY HIS PROMISES!
“LORD YOU HOLD MY LIFE, YOU ARE THE LORD OF LIFE, YOU ARE THE ONE KEEPING ME IN PERFECT HEALTH! Hallelujah!
Pray the words of Psalm 125 out loud to the LORD, feel your confidence rise as you entrust yourself to Him.
It is a time to anchor ourselves in the truth that the LORD is the LORD OF LIFE.
He is the One holding your life, thank Him today for keeping you strong, keeping you in perfect peace today and everyday!
In this moment where a spirit of fear is trying to attach itself to people across the globe, lets rise up and be a people of true peace and faith. Be wise in all things, but let us not bow the knee to fear.
Rather, come to the Lord in faith & deep trust.
AND REMEMBER! There is so much GOOD that lies ahead, let us not be distracted, but rather take this moment as an opportunity to worship Jesus, pray, seek His face – & keep His promises before you, as always.
He is Faithful!
