It is astonishing how quick things can happen. One minute everything is fine and the next it is a disaster. A word of the Lord a few years ago went out from our leadereship that said "My people will learn to trust me because they have to." I think we can all say that is very true if we look back on the last few years. Sunday, our pastor said that God told him that "He needed His people to take their place, and America needed His people to take their place". Notice that the word was to God's people not just anyone or to the world. As I was praying a few nights ago, I asked God what was on His heart.
He said my people. He said that "people say that I am their God, but they don't do as I do or how I instruct". I Pray that as you read this you will be determined to heed the word of God and be all that He created you to be. This is a serious hour and God says that He needs you to take your place. If you don't know what it is that you are to do ,ask Him to show you and I promise He will. Get in your closet (or a quiet place) and seek His face. It's time that we ,as His people ,stop listening to the world and listen to the one who created us, who knows you better than you know yourself, and wants us to rise up and really be His people. As a parent we are always proud when our children (especially a teenager) do as we ask even if they don't understand why or how, but trust us. God was pleased with Abraham; even though he didn't know where he was going or how to get there ,God told Abraham that He would show him and it was credited to Abraham for rising up and taking that step of faith. God is no respector of persons and He wants all of His people to do the same. Thank you for allowing me to share this truth with you~ Phyllis
