Word of the Day... January 19, 2013

I tell you the truth, many prophets and righteous people longed to see what you see, but they didn’t see it. And they longed to hear what you hear, but they didn’t hear it.  Matthew 13:17

As we get closer to the Rapture of the church there are hard times ahead for many of us. Many people are losing their jobs or are having their hours cut.  It is becoming increasingly harder to pay your bills when your paychecks are getting smaller. I have noticed that my check has decreased. It can be really scary.

While I was out walking one day the Lord allowed me to see a bird trying to fly into the wind. The harder the air hit that bird’s chest the higher he flew. The bird didn't stop trying.  It just kept flapping his wings and the harder he flapped the higher he rose. 

He told me that as the hard times come against us, to remember the birds and how much more He loves us then He does those birds.  That as we put our full trust in Him,  He will help us to rise above the problems of the world. The Lord was telling me that He is our strength and our shield, but unlike inanimate armor, His Presence watches over us constantly, protecting us from both the known and unknown dangers. 

What we need to do as His children is to just be still and allow Him to move through us.  His watch is the best security system available.  He will watch over us and is with us wherever we go. Now take that thought with you as you start your Simply Heavenly weekend and be blessed!!!
