Yesterday during my time of prayer, the Lord directed me to one of my favorite Scriptures. This was quite out of the blue because I'm currently reading the New Testament. My husband and I are on lock down in our home, and yet outside our walls the world seems to have gone mad. So much fear and worry. So many people no longer collecting a paycheck and wondering how they will pay bills. People distancing themselves from others as if everyone could potentially infect them with the plague. Other who are sick and terrified they will die. Please read the Scripture below and receive it as if the Lord were speaking to you directly. This is what He wanted me to share with you.
Where is says "Jacob and Israel' in the Scripture, I substituted "precious child" and "bride"
Isaiah 44:1-8 (Amplified)
“But now listen, O precious child, My servant,
And my bride, whom I have chosen:
This is what the Lord who made you
And formed you from the womb, who will help you says,
‘Fear not, O precious child, My servant;
And my bride, whom I have chosen.
‘For I will pour out water on him who is thirsty,
And streams on the dry ground;
I will pour out My Spirit on your offspring
And My blessing on your descendants;
And they will spring up among the grass
Like willows by the streams of water.’
“One will say, ‘I am the Lord’s’;
And another will name himself after Jacob;
And another will write on his hand, ‘I am the Lord’s,’
And be called by the honorable name of Israel.
“For the Lord, the King of Israel and his Redeemer, the Lord of hosts says this,
‘I am the First and I am the Last;
And there is no God besides Me.
‘Who is like Me? Let him proclaim it and declare it;
Yes, let him confront Me,
Since I established the people of antiquity.
And let those supposed gods tell those people who foolishly follow them the things to come
And the events that are going to take place.
‘Do not tremble nor be afraid of the violent upheavals to come;
Have I not long ago proclaimed it to you and declared it?
And you are My witnesses.
Is there a God besides Me?
There is no other Rock;
I know of none.’”
God is indeed on the throne! He promises to save our children and to protect us! He is God and He alone is God. He is the only one who holds the future in His hands! He has told us things like this would happen. Stay strong and rest in Him.
