A Message From The Publisher
For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for a lifetime; Weeping may last for the night, But a shout of joy comes in the morning. Psalm 30:5 (NASB)
By Bobby R. Henry, Sr.
In times like these we questioned everything that happens good bad or in-different. We can’t seem to find the answers to justify what we consider to be the means to what is happening. We run rampant searching for answers to appease us to suppress the anxieties that we feel because of our human frailties.
We have no understanding.
So, how do we justify our actions? Before coronavirus-19 there were the 10 plagues: Water that turned to blood, Frogs, Gnats / Lice, Flies, Death of livestock, Boils on humans, Severe hailstorm, Locusts, Darkness, Death of first-born sons: humans and cattle. It’s coronavirus –19 today – what will be the dilemma tomorrow that rocks our equilibrium?
During these times of death and hardships, how is it that there are some people who seem to be calm as a cucumber, smooth as a dressing mirror and as collected as a Sunday morning offering? Not only in the midst of this turmoil but in confusion period, how is it so that they find peace?
As cliché as this may sound they believe in the peace of God that surpasses all understanding. They trust and “not grow weary in well-doing, for in due time we will reap a harvest, if we do not give up.”
The unbelieved, the unknowing and those who just don’t care might think it’s foolish of those who say, “God has not given us the spirit of fear but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”
Throughout eternity there have been and there are those who still say with conviction and actions, “upon Jesus Christ the Solid Rock I stand all other is sinking sands.” However, that doesn’t mean that societal demands take away from their beliefs.
During this crisis intervention lets not look upon others with distain or twisted personal ideologies. If those who do not want to be embraced or touched or greeted with a “Holy Kiss”, then save your warm embraces for those who do.
There’s hope and peace in scriptures, that can be shared with or without hugs, handshakes or close proximity to those who wash their hands or who keep their hearts clean.
“Fear not, for I am with you;”
“For a moment lasts His anger, for a life-time His love; sorrow is but the guest of a night, and joy comes in the morning.”
“Dear God, in the name of Jesus. Hear our prayers oh Lord for all our brothers and sisters, Your children. We ask in Yahshua’s name for a healing from the plagues that keep us separated and keep us from loving You. For your Word tells us the we are healed because of the stripes You took for the sins we committed and for the sins we will commit. Believing that You can do anything but fail we know that You are not a man and therefore You cannot lie. Your Word tells us that You will never leave us nor forsake us. We stand on Your Word unmoved and unshakeable. In the name of Yahshua, hear our prayers. Amen
