I am only man. Abraham was only a man. Moses was only a man. King David was only a man.
We are not in control of the outcome of all of this. Healing the sick, giving sight to the blind, healing and restoring nations. Only God can do all that.
You and I are merely men/women who come under the power of a mighty God who can and will … as he wills.
I can’t help but think of Nineveh… a nation that was going to be destroyed because of their sinful, deceitful, chosen, ways of life. God, rich in mercy saved that nation and everyone including the king, turned from their wicked ways, repented for chasing false gods … trying to be gods and praised the one true God.
Most of us can’t wait for our nation to get back to normal… but I don’t think it ever will. God is doing a new thing. First reviving the hearts of HIS PEOPLE … causing us to turn back to our first love … he’s breaking down walls… closing up doors and is forcing us outside the buildings that have caused us to remain comfortable, and lazy. We are to be lights. To worship on the mountain tops. To be seen not hidden. When did our lights go dim. When did the church become a business with open and closed hours?
Lord, continue to make the world uncomfortable for your people, help us to submit to your plan, your will… your way! Help us to find our peace and rest in you alone. Help us to praise you in this storm… raising our hands high. Knowing you are faithful, just, holy, and your way is righteous! 🙌🏻♥️
Rise up, Lord! Do not let man prevail; let the nations be judged in Your presence. Put terror in them, Lord; let the nations know THEY ARE ONLY MEN. Selah” Psalms 9:19-20 HCSB
