Looking for a “Word from God” for 2021?
May the Light of God scatter your every darkness, the blessing He promised to you through your faith in Jesus Christ (Due. 28:7 & Gal. 3:29)!
Dan 3:25, “…Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God!”
Take comfort, participant in God’s Kingdom, for the Prince of Peace still reigns today.
Isa 33:5-6, “The LORD is exalted, for He dwells on high; He will fill Zion with justice and righteousness, and He will be the stability of your times, an abundance of salvation, wisdom, and knowledge will be yours; the fear of the LORD is Zion’s treasure.” (or, “the fear of the LORD is the key to this treasure.” Both translations render true through the more colorful Hebrew text.)
Sooo many times, Susan and I have told our gentle Master, “We don’t want to go to the gym today, Lord. We’re tired of the workouts.” Frequently, His reply has been along the lines of, “If you could see the beautiful results of salvation that I see, on the other side of this workout (testing), you’d leap into action right now!”
Here we are folks, in the fire, like it or not. Still, we are free in-deed (pun intended)!
Isa 33:13 “Hear, you who are far off, what I have done; and you who are near, acknowledge My might.
Isa 33:14 The sinners in Zion are terrified; trembling grips the godless: ‘Who among us can live with the consuming fire? Who among us can live with everlasting flames?
Isa 33:15 The one who walks righteously and has spoken sincere words, who rejects gain from extortion (robbery) and waves his hand, rejecting bribes, who blocks his ears from hearing plots of murder and shuts his eyes against seeing evil—
Isa 33:16 this is the one who will live on the heights; his refuge will be a mountain fortress. His food will be supplied, and his water will be guaranteed.’
Isa 33:17 “Your eyes will see the King in his beauty and view a land that stretches afar.
Isa 33:19 No longer will you see those arrogant people, those people with their obscure speech you cannot comprehend…”
Through faith in Jesus, our Righteousness, we embrace verses 13 – 17 as our Portion. Through faith in the fire (God’s judgment), we rejoice in verse 19 too!
Can you “see” that seemingly distant place with us, that day when you do not hear their strange speech?! Instead, all together we shall praise God, the beautiful results of salvation!
Let us embrace the flames of God’s love, trusting Him who knows and promises to scatter every foe. May revival break out everywhere, to the praise of Him who is worthy.
Dan 3:17-18, “Your majesty, if it be His will, our God whom we serve can deliver us from the blazing fire furnace, and He will deliver us from you. But if not, rest assured, your majesty, that we won’t serve your gods, and we won’t worship the golden statue that you have set up.”
Different testimony, same tone:
Dan 6:22, “My God sent his angel and shut the lions’ mouths, and they have not harmed me, because I was found blameless before Him; and also before you, O king, I have done no wrong.”
Col 1:22-23 “[Christ suffered in your place] … to present you as holy, blameless, and without fault before Him. However, you must remain firmly established and steadfast in the faith, without being moved from the hope of the gospel…”
1 Cor 2:6, “…among the mature we do impart wisdom, although it is not a wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing.”
Isa 9:6 “For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon His shoulder, and His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Isa 9:7 Of the increase of His government and of peace there will be no end, on the throne of David and over His kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and forevermore. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will do this.”
The Word of the LORD for 2021 is Isaiah 33, the whole relevant and living chapter. Do yourself a solid and jump wholeheartedly into it!
