IMG_0172If Holy Spirit graciously chose a verse to speak to you in the middle of the night, January 23rd, would you wake up and pull out your Bible to investigate? I Heard “John 14:1” clearly. Just that. Since God’s words are the same yesterday, today and tomorrow, He uses them to exhort or encourage us today as well. Their message is timeless. “The Lord told me to write down his message for his people, so that it would be there forever.” (Isaiah 30:8) I have been reading many prophetic pronouncements of judgement coming to America, which can up one’s fear factor. The idea of national betrayal, food shortages, martial law — the changing of that which has always been solidly assured by our U.S. Constitution and God’s spirit of patriotism — can bring the fear of uncertainty.

Here is what I read for John 14:1 (CEV version): Jesus said to his disciples, “Don’t be worried! Have faith in God and have faith in me.” Wow! How encouraging is that to those to faithfully follow Jesus unto salvation? Remember, I AM NOT giving you this verse for such a time as this, Holy Spirit chose it of all the verses available in 66 books. If you read further into verse 2, Jesus goes on to say, “There are many rooms in my Father’s house. I wouldn’t tell you this unless it was true.” Our God is real. Jesus is coming back for us. Holy Spirit is the restrainer against evil currently in place. You have been chosen from the foundation of the world to live in such a time as this. Buckle on the full armor of God as protection. Stay close to him. Ponder these words of the Old Testament prophet Isaiah: “The holy Lord God of Israel had told all of you, I will keep you safe if you turn back to me and calm down. I will make you strong if you quietly trust me.” (Isaiah 30:15)
