Almost 2024

 2 days or so and its game on. "They" are running out of time and regardless of which way things go there will be a very large group of people very dissatisfied with the outcome of events in 2024.  We need to pray.  We need to get down on our knees and pray like we were put here on this earth to get down on our knees to pray.  The calendar has not even flipped yet and the blur of scary headlines has already increases to a fever pitch.  We are going to have to rely on our faith and the Word of God like never before to get through this next 12 months or so (and likely beyond).

The Lord gave us a good starting point for all this here:

Prov 3

3Let not steadfast love and faithfulness forsake you;
bind them around your neck;
write them on the tablet of your heart.
4So you will find favor and good successa
in the sight of God and man.

5Trust in the LORD with all your heart,
and do not lean on your own understanding.
6In all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make straight your paths.

What is going on around us can be and is overwhelming most of the time.  We are going to have to dial back our thinking and things we think we "know" to allow the Lord to do His God stuff within the framework of our thoughts/mind.  

We need to pray about everything and anything that catches our attention.  Everything needs to be captured and restrained in prayer.  The Lord is going to have to do all of the heavy lifting here.  The devil and his army have launched total war on humanity and its going to take the Lord God and His armies to fight it.

2 Cor 10

3For though we walk in the flesh, we are not waging war according to the flesh. 4For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. 5We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ, 6being ready to punish every disobedience, when your obedience is complete.

The Lord God in His omniscience put us here on earth for a reason in this season.  Its not a mistake.  You and I and everyone else who has faith the size of a mustard seed within them are the right people for the job to do what the Kingdom of Heaven requires today.

It is time for us who believe, it is our time.  Let us do our job in a way that our Father in Heaven can say

Matt 25:

21His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant.e You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.’

Glory to God
