“Go! This is the day the LORD has given Sisera into your hands. Has not the LORD gone ahead of you?” Judges 4:14b
Heal me, O LORD, and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for you are the one I praise. Jeremiah 17:14
Whoever does God’s will is my brother and sister and mother. Mark 3:35
Those who had been scattered preached the word wherever they went. Acts 8:4
The persecution of the church scattered believers far and wide. Though they were under great pressure they kept talking about Jesus.
Often the storms of life send us spinning off our usual trajectory and into a group of people who do not know us or our beliefs. These are the days God goes ahead of us and prepares the way to meet potential new brothers and sisters in Christ. He gives us victory, not necessarily in our infirmities, but in the power and grace of our witness. Our healing could be in our bodies. It is definitely well with our souls.
You O Lord are engraved with a diamond tipped pen on the tablet of my heart. May everyone see your beauty carved into my life for the praise and glory of your Name. Amen.
