‘WHERE IS JESUS WHEN WE NEED HIM THE MOST?’
I read this heart cry on a FB page a few days ago. This wasn’t somebody being funny, or making a mocking comment. This was a real cry of perplexity. A cry of desperation. A genuine cry saying—
‘I want to believe in You, I do believe in You, but WHERE ARE YOU?’ ’Aren’t You supposed to love us? Well, we need Your help, right now!’
‘WHERE ARE YOU JESUS WHEN WE NEED YOU THE MOST!’
In this fast changing world, where people don’t feel safe, where our way of life seems forever changed, and the future looks exceedingly bleak to many—
May I share a word of encouragement— a word I was given a few weeks ago.
I was praying for our country with my prayer partner, and we were interceding over the issues that face us right now— the really difficult issues that are troubling and that have left many feeling helpless, even hopeless, despairing and beyond remedy. Issues that test the faith of those who follow the Christ. Issues that may have resulted in individuals feeling abandoned, and asking the question ‘Who is going to help us now? Where does our help come from?’
I was in mid sentence and was suddenly interrupted by a little bolt of heavenly revelation that seemed to strike the right side of my head and enter my brain [not the normal way I hear re the inner witness] —but this came as a message directly from heaven, directly from the Father, and it was this:
‘HEAVEN HAS A PLAN AND IT IS IN HAND.’
A very simple message with a big impact!
This was regarding Aotearoa NZ. It was as though I’d been struck by a little heavenly lightening to emphasise the true import of this succinct message. Short, punchy, but direct from the heavenly realm.
I had to stop praying and share with my prayer partner that I’d just heard from heaven.
We are not alone. Heaven broods over us. Heaven sees. We can be assured that
‘Heaven has a plan, and it is all in hand.’
I don’t know what that is going to look like, but I got a distinct sense that we can enter into ‘the rest’ of knowing that heaven will intervene in our affairs, in the specific way and the timing that is part of a plan; and we can be sure that we are able to trust in the wisdom that comes from above in implementing that plan.
Be encouraged. He is ‘providing a way of escape’ [another word I was given shortly after]
We may feel our feet are caught in the net, but He’s turning the tables—
and we shall see the salvation of our God!
GOD BLESS NEW ZEALAND!
