A surprising mid-week prayer-time. Thick storm clouds covered the sky. I searched for a patch of blue. I found it. I focussed on connection with the LORD, and began to pray. The question surprised me.
Isaiah 21:11 Watchman,:, What of the night?
Watchman.: What of the night?
The reply, The morning comes but again will come the night.
RETURN! COME BACK! COME BACK!
This refrain from the prophetic Book of Isaiah came to mind. My studies of the prophetic book had led me to a limited understanding of Old Testament interactions with God and territorial Promises if God’s People lived by His Rules.
We, of the New Covenant now living in His Kingdom following our Saviour, what indeed will I see when the clouds disperse? What will I hear?
I continued to pray for people, places as God the Holy Spirit led,
Then, when the clouds parted and a sliver of sunlight emerged again, I looked up.
High above the canopy of treetops a lone bird perched on a tree branch.
Like a Sentinel he waited for weather changes
Psm 92: verses 13,14,15
I returned to the house as gentle rain began to fall.
I checked the Psalm. May it be a blessing to us ALL in this day.
Those who are planted in the Lord shall still bear fruit in old age.
They shall be fresh and flourishing
To declare that the Lord is upright ,
HE IS MY ROCK AND THERE IS NO UNRIGHTEOUSNESS IN HIM
In CHRIST ALONE ……This is an ETERNITY PROMISE.
a-men and thank YOU.
