Cannot Be Hasty
The thoughts of the diligent tend only to plenteousness; but of everyone that is hasty only to want. [Prov 21:5]
I have stated in times past that it is understood that people today desire information quickly, constantly and consistently. It would be easy for me to write something, even a little something daily, if visits to the site were my priority.
Yes, as a writer, I do desire folks to come by the site (obviously) or else my writing would be redundant. My heart is to reach the hearts of people who are searching, who are struggling, who are fighting the fight and feel like they are losing.
We are in a time like never before, yet the Word of God is filled with prophecy regarding the end times, the last of the last days. Jesus (Yeshua) Himself forewarned that the last days would be akin to (similar, like) the days of Noah.
For as in the days that were before the flood (judgment) they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. [Mat 24:38, 39]
How was it in the days of Noah, and how is it similar to today? Let scripture explain it clearly.
[Gen 6:5, 6]
It does not take a highly intelligent person to clearly see that we are right there today, with every wickedness happening daily globally, with even the high courts changing laws that clearly defy a holy and righteous God (Creator).
Jesus the Christ was always ministering to people. He fed them spiritually and physically, delivered people from demons, healed lepers, blind and many other diseases and sicknesses, teachings (most often in parables), but also taught about living right and about repentance.
He gave exhortations, warnings, guidance (instructions) and forgiveness of sins.
Jesus worked tirelessly ministering to people for a season. Some say three or three and a half years, some say less, some say more. To me, how long He ministered is not as important as what He accomplished, in doing His Father's will during that time.
Ultimately, He gave His all at the end of His ministry by willingly offering up His life as a sacrifice, spilling and sprinkling His blood as atonement, and so we could be cleansed and forgiven of sins to those who believe.
My desire is to please God and prayerfully and faithfully write what He would have me to write, which will glorify Him alone, but minister to His people. That may require silent periods at times. How often can we best serve others when we speak from experience and a heart filled with compassion, understanding and love as the Holy Spirit gives us utterance.
What I write is most certainly not scripture, nor will it ever be. However, it is important to me that I hear from God before I put pen to paper, or fingers to keyboard...
My writing may not be perfect with every jot and tittle in place (perfect editing), but I do strive to offer my best, for as His handmaiden and daughter, my heart's desire is that the writing is for the sake of the people, but for the glory of Abba, our holy King and Saviour.
The Lord has many vessels that write; I am but one. It is my hope that the article I have been working on will be published here by late tomorrow evening. Do keep in mind that I am Pacific time (three hours behind Eastern time and two hours behind Central time).
It will cover the incredibly dark times we are in (spiritually), the attacks, distractions, seductions, temptations, trials and tribulations happening to believers (disciples of Christ) today; discouragement, hopelessness, negative thoughts and other struggles bombarding the Body of Christ these days.
Also, I will be touching upon faith, trust, obedience and waiting on the Lord and His timing, as I have been off and on now for the past couple of years. May the writing be a source of hope and encouragement for the weary, the fearful, the backslidden, the discouraged and the battle-fatigued Christian.
The piece will be called, On Dangerous Ground. I do thank my readers for their great patience.
for His glory
