Are YOU Asking for Direction?

I remember many years ago knowing the day would come when we would begin to see so many prophecies come to pass. I wasn’t sure exactly how many of them I would live to see but I knew since Israel had become a nation again things would begin to unfold.

Today we don’t have to look far to see the written words from in some cases thousands of years ago, be lived out before our very eyes. That is both a little frightening and very exciting. If we have been born again, through the blood of Christ, and are living our life for Him, we have much to be excited about. Our beautiful King of Kings will soon be appearing for His church.

Wickedness and lawlessness are on the uptake as the days draw to a close for our soon appearing King. Some days it’s hard to navigate exactly what the LORD would have us do with all the tyranny we see about us. However we have only to ask Him how we can serve Him and share the good news, when the world sees nothing but bad news.

If you are wondering what you can do in these strange times, simply ask God what He has for you to do. We are all here at this time by design, He definitely has a plan for each of us to fulfill. The words of Isaiah really blessed me this morning. They are so appropriate for the times we are living in. Despite the “heavy yoke of oppression,” that surrounds many of us, we must still do good.

Isaiah 58:9-12

“Remove the heavy yoke of oppression.
    Stop pointing your finger and spreading vicious rumors!
 Feed the hungry,
    and help those in trouble.
Then your light will shine out from the darkness,
    and the darkness around you will be as bright as noon.
 The Lord will guide you continually,
    giving you water when you are dry
    and restoring your strength.
You will be like a well-watered garden,
    like an ever-flowing spring.
 Some of you will rebuild the deserted ruins of your cities.
    Then you will be known as a rebuilder of walls
    and a restorer of homes.

Don’t be discouraged. Don’t be afraid. Instead seek the LORD for instructions on what you can be doing during these days. Remember, if you know Jesus Christ as Savior, you have the answer to the world’s problems. He is the answer. He will take care of His own, just as He is taking care of you and I during these rough times.

Be well & be blessed!
