Isn’t it wild how one day, life feels normal…and then the next day it’s like the whole world has suddenly changed.
I believe we’ve gone into a new place in time –and things will never be the same as they were before.
Right now this time feels like a “wake up call” opportunity –that’s the phrase I heard.
As believers in Christ, we know how the story goes. We know that our hope is in Jesus, we know where we are destined for eternity. We know that we have nothing to fear, and we also know when we’re getting closer to “the end” because He was so good to let us know about what we will see in the earth in that time…. in this time.
I believe the Lord is giving us opportunity to shine with the light of Jesus in a dark world right now, an opportunity to infuse love and compassion into a world that’s afraid and hopeless. He’s giving His sons and daughters the opportunity to turn on the light switch.
I believe the Lord is drawing us to repentance, He’s giving us this time, when things are slowed down, to pause and think and pay attention to the signs of the times.
He’s giving us opportunity to seek Him, to cry out to Him, to be heard by Him, to find Him, to hear His heart!
I think of Jeremiah 29:12-13:
“Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.”
Oh God, I pray that many will find You in all of this, that Your children will use this opportunity to draw nearer to You, to find You more deeply, to hear Your heart in the midst of all of this. To be awakened and never the same.
I pray that many will seek and find you in this troubling time, and I pray that You will give us strength and boldness to bravely shine Your light in the midst of the darkness.
I also pray that for those who have never discovered their “secret place” with You, Father — that this will be that time for them in their lives!
Can you imagine, within this time of isolation…. if many found their “secret place” with the Lord. And then from that secret place… overflow… ?
I’m so hopeful, Lord! Help us to be wise with this opportunity, that many will wake up and turn their hearts to You! That lives will be changed, and that there will be a great awakening upon the earth! Thank You for the shaking, God…. You know what’s best for us, You know what we need. Help us to take heed, that we won’t miss out on this opportunity to “arise and shine” to Your “wake up call” ☀️
