I don’t know where do you live now. But i live here in Australia. Which the seasons and weather are very different. Here , you feel different. My summer is your winter. Now as you may trembling of your cold season ( Winter ) , I am looking for a fan for my room . 36- 42 is the average temperature , Hot Hot Hot.
This is me now:
I know , I know. May your side is snow – But here is so very hot!
Okay – as i am sweating now – lets go back to topic . I am going to share you something that God put in my heart last night.
In three things God responding you in this year. In book of Joel chapter 2 : 18 – 22 we read this.
1- God is jealous ( I AM jealous )
The Jealousy of God is good for you because when He is jealous for you it means He is counting on you. It means you are included not excluded from plan of God. He is not jealous because He wants or He needs something rather because He is in love with you. If the jealousy of God is my benefit let it be. Why not? As i am talking about a godly jealousy which is right to say it. Being Jealous is not sin when desiring something that belongs to you ( opposite of this is sin). We are belong to God , so than , He has right to be jealous for us.
So , Yes , He is so jealous for you. Because He loves you. That is why God go into action to get his people back. If you are far from Him , Still He is jealous for you. Still you are in a circle of love in Him.
2- God is compassion ( I Am compassion )
God’s compassion freely given . Yahweh boldly declares, “I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion” ( Exodus 33:19 ). ” He took pity on His people ” . He is remembering you that you are human and vulnerable in most ways. It was God’s compassion that He sent His begotten Son . He will cover you this year ahead. Yes, His Compassion will be sufficient. Even you are in hardest and difficult time , He will remember you. In deep down His Compassion will heal you.
“Just as a father has compassion on his children, So the LORD has compassion on those who fear Him. For He Himself knows our frame; He is mindful that we are but dust. As for man, his days are like grass; As a flower of the field, so he flourishes”
3- God answered ( I Am the answer)
He is your answer for this year with all challenges and ups and downs. He is the Lion. No one is like Him. He listens to you. He does not listen to the lie of enemy . He is on your side. He is your God. He is the answer of all your unanswered questions. It is a new season, a season of new beginning. Le the old-me-gone and Le the new-me-come!
Before they call I will answer; while they are still speaking I will hear. ( Isaiah 65:24 )
We Say : I need an answer!
God says : I am your answer!
We say : It is difficult
God says : I am the answer
We say : I can not do it
God says : I am the answer ( I am able)
Whatever is your situation looks like , He is the answer. Do not be discouraged because your God is STRONG . Do not go anywhere to search for the answer . Go to Him , He is the source of all the answers.
In all scenarios He says ” I AM “.
