God is doing a lot in my life right now. He's been guiding me through some horrible times and some good times. He's been right here with me all along. Just like He promised he would in The Twenty-Third Psalm. Y'all know it but I'm going to pray it again.
Psalm 23 King James Version (KJV)
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
Tomorrow may never come. When it does, my salvation will be intact thanks to the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.
When the final day comes God will be showing us the way to safety, while Christ and His Heavenly warriors fight Satan and his demons.
I know that I will be as scared as a lamb about to be slaughtered. The decision for how each of Y'all will act will be up to you. It's not my place to give you advice, except to say, "I'm not anyone's leader. Look to God for any guidance you seek.
To our delight and relief, God will continue leading me and the rest of us sheep down the path He has prepared for us. While behind us, Jesus and His army is puttin' that mean ol' Satan down.
Tonight when I sleep I will find rest in God. Not because I'm a righteous man and deserve to sleep, the sleep of the righteous. No, I'll be holding Gods hand. Not because it is my right, as a child of God. It will be because I'm a scared child of God, and the only hope for sleep is by holding His hand and finding comfort by knowing He is there.
God is love, but Y'all and me realize He meant it when He said leave the vengeance for Him. I've been learning the true meaning of meekness and humility these last few days. I'm not any kind of warrior for God. I'm just a frightened little boy running behind his father with a plastic sword and trying to pull up my pants so I won't trip.
With that picture in mind, I'm asking for your prayers for what's up ahead. Humble prayers asking God to watch over and protect me. Not a prayer of inspiration, stirring human warriors to battle rushing in to defend our faith. God has that covered. Hope y'all's evening treats you well.
