False prophets abound today in our present day Babylon don’t they? Giving us false direction, preaching from pulpits and selling books that lead us astray. Fortune tellers make their fortune preying on those who seek their advice and counsel when those who seek their counsel should be seeking out the words of the one true God of Creation and the God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob. Seeking the God who led His people down through the pages of biblical history, protecting His lineage in order to bring the perfect plan of salvation for a lost world, into the big picture. Everything He allowed for His people was for an ultimate purpose to fulfil His plan and make it happen. He did it in spite of those that came against Him! Yeah, today, He’s still sovereign and in control! He hasn’t changed. He still has a plan for your life, and for a messed up world, when the leadership of our countries is at an all time low, He still has a plan for good and not disaster. A plan for your future all wrapped up in grace to propel you forward with hope. Seek Him!
He gave words of warning to His people, through His prophet, Jeremiah, whom He called, to not listen to the lies of false prophets but to seek Him and Him alone. Bonus on that ~ if they and ~ if we today, truly search for Him we will find Him. Take heart in this moment! Stay away from those that trick and tickle your ears with pleasantries and prey on your vulnerability with lies! Today ~ you beautiful soul, Seek the LORD of Heaven’s armies, and walk in the Truth!
“This is what the LORD of heaven’s armies, the God of Israel says: “Do not let your prophets and fortune-tellers, who are in the land of Babylon trick you. Do not listen to their dreams, because they are telling you lies in my name. I have not sent them says the LORD. But this is what the LORD says, “You will be in Babylon for seventy years but then I will come and do for you all the good things I have promised, and I will bring you home again. For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and hope. If you look for me wholeheartedly you will find me.”
Jeremiah 29: 8- 13

Yeah, we’re sojourners along this earthly journey of life. Broken and bruised and sometimes just hanging on by a thread of hope and praying our way through! Sometimes our wilderness wanderings are long and tedious with anxious thoughts, fears, panic moments disastrous happenings and just lost trust! Times when we forget to be thankful for just what we have and become critical of the provision made for us. Our manna becomes stale and mundane and we crave the meat that we remember back in the days of bondage. The days when the bad outweighed the good but yet our selfish pleasures led the way and disguised the truth from our hearts and minds. Yeah, we’re travelling, you and I and we and us, through the trenches, and over the hard places and strongholds along the way with roads that are steep and dangerously overloaded with “stuff’ along the way to distract us and take us to our defeat!
Beautiful soul, in these moments of trial, we must be strong, keeping the faith and persevering in the journey of unknowns, ready to face the battle and with the Lord’s help conquer what ever comes.
David knew those anxious moments and in Psalm 3: 1 knew of his many enemies that were against him, but he praised the Lord anyway in Psalm 3: verses 3,4,5 and 6 “But you O Lord are a shield around me. Your are the glory, the One who hold my head high. I cried out to the Lord and He answered me from His holy mountain. I lay down and slept, yet I woke up in safety, for the Lord was watching over me. I am not afraid of ten thousand enemies that surround me on every side….Vs 8, “Victory comes from you Oh Lord.”
So beautiful one, find victory in the One true God today!

We’ve all been there haven’t we? Doing battle with the enemy? Trudging through the trenches, catching on the thickets, walking through the deadly fires of trial! In “deep” and just trying to keep our head above water as we find our way through the maze of whatever it is that’s going down? Yeah, we have! We’ve been there ~ everyone of us ~ trying desperately in our finite, and weak, human frame to just trust through a head knowledge that says “it’s” big and “it’s” steep and it’s out of our control, yet, it hangs over our weary heads, and tired frames like a Pig-Pen cloud! A cloud of thick, messy dust that just wants to settle right there overtop of our world. A dust cloud of “heavy” and “relentless” that wants to lodge right over our heads and weigh us down and push down, down and down even father still. You know it don’t you? Those wars that blow in out of nowhere to distract our spiritual focus and undermine our faith in the God who we say we trust?
So beautiful soul, these are the times to rise up on wings of faith above all the difficult, above all the nonsense, above all the hard places and the tight spots and let God plan the strategy for battle. He’s so skilled and so equipped to do it. He’s got just the right fight for the enemy and can run him off-course so quickly it will make your head swirl. He’s sovereign! He sees ahead and knows just the right move at just the right time. His strategy is out of this world and divinely sealed with awesome and exquiste perfection. His compassion so rich and His grace so sweet and His faithfulness so rock solid, that it can make our problem puny and pale. So you and I and we and us ~ we can trudge through those trenches, get all caught up in those thickets and get burned in the flames of our own futile, attempts or we can simply turn it all over to a God who still cares so deeply and covers our back so faithfully! It’s a no-brainer sweet soul, so whatever it is that hangs over you today, as hard as it is to ‘let it go’, let it go! Let it float over the hard spots and right into the hands of the Saviour of your world. He’s got it and He’s got you and even though there might be difficulty ahead, you can know He’ll bring you through! When the battle rages, and gets hot, step aside and make room for God.
“You will not have to fight this battle. Take up your positions; stand firm and see the deliverance the LORD will give you, Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Go out to face them tomorrow, and the LORD will be with you.’
2 Chronicles 20:17
“Moses answered the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the LORD will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again.”

A discouraging day is it? Yeah, there are some of those, when everything that can go wrong does and when it’s all said and done, it’s all said and done and you can’t change it or make it different but you can shake it off, move on and make a difference. Begin with an attitude check and a heaping dose of God’s grace to soothe the discouragement, disappointment and add some mellow to the harsh. Those sand paper moments are difficult but they come and sometimes they trick us into thinking we’re not good enough or smart enough or strong enough to make it. They sneak up on us and catch us off guard and if we’re not alert they can win it over us and run us down. Beautiful soul, you are not defined by your successes or your accomplishments. You are not who you are because you’ve made it or haven’t made it. You are you and who you are is God’s creation made in His image, and made beautifully to fulfil His purpose in your life. He hasn’t left. He hasn’t walked away. He hasn’t left you alone in the journey. Trust Him to meet you right where you are ~ in that heap of insecurity and not good enough. In that heap of impossible and over the top expectation demanded of you. Jesus is your security in your insecurities and your strength and motivation in the impossible. Let Him take your load, your worry and your anxieties and give you peace.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
