Sitting here this morning, I must admit that I feel a bit numb. It’s that feeling when you know in this physical world, you ought to be freaking out, but you’re not.
I’m completely aware of my surroundings. I understand that this could last for months before we ever gain some sense of normalcy again. I’ve had dreams of sewing masks and preparing for what I would be faced with when stepping outside my home.
I am faced with endless prayer requests on social media, and I do my best to provide for every need that crosses my path.
I seek to find something to busy myself by making masks, but many argue that my making masks would harm others. When wearing my own mask, people give me looks and presume that I am sick as if I were a leper. None of them showed any sort of compassion as to why I might be wearing that mask. Could it be that I have children who have had health problems, and I want to protect them? Could it be that I am concerned about my own health and the exposure to this thing we are warring against? Could it be that I should make my own choices as to how protected I want to be?
It’s a war out there. A war is being waged against our peace and against our joy. What ever happened to common sense? When did people ever believe that starting a fight would help them achieve the result they were looking for? When did rebellion ever get someone a good result?
People say that the battle belongs to the Lord. If this is so, then why do people keeps taking matters into their own hands? I saw deception over the land way before this war began. People have lost their common sense; it’s becoming a rarity. Good has become evil, and evil has become good.
People, go back to the place where you found your first love. Ask God where the right path is and get on it. Consider any mistakes and make it right with God. Ask for wisdom. Examine all things, even your heart. Make it all right with God; repent. Consider the life of Jesus and the apostles. Who ever stood against evil for their rights? Get back to God through prayer, through fasting, and being on your knees. Be desperate for the presence of the Lord. You may not find Him in that Sunday morning building, but you will find Him in your prayer closet. God will be there when you call for him. Seek the Lord surrendering everything you have and all that you are. Yield to his direction, and you will find peace and direction. You will experience love, if your heart is ready to receive it.
Go forth and be blessed my friend.
