After a while of ceasing to write what God laid on my heart, a good sister of mine recall me back to my previous message and challenged me. I see God asking me to keep writing this. And he has given me a window of stay home during this epidemic, so that I have no excuse.
While the world mourns, and everybody is under isolation, what do we do?
Is it not evident that the prophecy of Christ as regards end time is being fulfilled?
“For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.” (Matthew 24:7-8|kjv)
Yet, the question still stands, what are we suppose to be doing at this trying moment?
An example of what to be done was given to us in the book of Job.
“Then Job arose, and rent his mantle, and shaved his head, and fell down upon the ground, and worshipped, And said, Naked came I out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return thither: the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD.” (Job 1:20-21|KJV)
After reporting all the saddened and heart wrenching news giving to Job, he cried, he showed his grief. He did not hide it behind a smile, he tore up his clothes; but as he was mourning, he rent his heart also unto God in worship.
The most difficult thing to do is to worship God when our heart bleeds. But such a worship shows how dependent we are on God, and to what extent we love God over every other thing we might claim we have, even in our families.
Worshiping God in trying moment does not necessarily mean saying sweet things unto Him; but remembering and acknowledging His supremacy and Him being the Alpha Omega, our Help and Deliverer.
God tested Abraham with what God knew is closer to his heart the most. If God tried you with your wife, job, child, ministry, or business; will you still worship Him?
One key thing that Jesus mentioned that can help us in this end time is to still be able to worship God despite the unfavourable circumstances and pressure around us is. NOT TO FEAR.
“And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: *see that ye be not troubled*: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.” (Matthew 24:6|KJV)
It is easy to worship God when we do not allow the scheme of Satan at this end hour to scare us.
I pray that the Father shall release the grace for boldness unto us, in Jesus name. Amen.
“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” (2 Timothy 1:7|KJV)
