Let it rain...

I'm reading thru Ezekiel (chpt 38 & 39) and to be honest there are times when I think "Please tell me how this applies to me?" and every time He is faithful to show me. Sometimes He'll do it immediately and others He'll show me in His time. Either way, I know that when I ask - He will answer.

These 2 chapters are filled with God's wrath on Gog and my commentary says Gog may be a specific place or a specific person or it may represent all evil, but either way in the end guess what...God WINS!!! WOOHOOO!! GO GOD!!! That's the reason those of us who believe in Him can lay our heads on our pillows at night and REST! We don't have to worry. We don't have to be burdened with the weight of life and the agony of so much around us.

Does that mean we don't hurt or we're not angry because of it - well of course not! It just means that we don't need to call in 15 experts from 37 fields of interest to sift thru and analyze every detail of every single thing that happens. We just call on the One who gives us life - abundant life - and He tells us the "why". Does that mean we have all the answers - again, of course not. It just means that we have a relationship with God and we trust Him enough to iron out the details of our lives. We trust that He is in control, that He has a plan and that more than anything else He loves us and wants the absolute best for those who love and obey Him! It really is that easy. It's taken me a LONG time to really believe that but now that I have - well, I'll never settle for the courtyard again!!!

Come along and breathe the sweet clean air of the Holy Place! The place of sanctuary with God Almighty. He's waiting.
