Many of us have already read and heard the prophetic warnings that have been released about the lawlessness, fires and the mayhem that will take place in New York and in other places. A few of these prophets have suggested that we take time to prepare for the hard times that lie ahead of us–by storing food, water and emergency kits.
David Wilkerson on his blog gave this word, “First, I give you a practical word I received for my own direction. If possible lay in store a thirty-day supply of non-perishable food, toiletries and other essentials. In major cities, grocery stores are emptied in an hour at the sign of an impending disaster.”
If you haven’t already done so you should start to get yourself prepared not just physically with food and supplies but more importantly spiritually.
Pastor Wilkerson also stated that, “As for our spiritual reaction, we have but two options. This is outlined in Psalm 11. We “flee like a bird to a mountain.” Or, as David says, “He fixed his eyes on the Lord on his throne in heaven—his eyes beholding, his eyelids testing the sons of men” (v. 4). “In the Lord I take refuge” (v. 1).” In this time the people of God are equipped to deal with whatever comes because the Lord our God is with us.”
Though we may get alarmed initially when we seek the Lord He will give us a strategy and will pour out His peace upon us. We will be able to pour out to others what we have received from God.
God always warns His people
The wonderful thing about God is that He always gives His people a warning. It’s up to us to respond in faith to the warning of God. Will we dismiss it? Will we start to panic? Will we be wise as Joseph and start to gather and store supplies?
God gives us the opportunity to be ready but we have to choose to act on what He has said. Not in fear or worry but with confidence in God, believing that He will stretch what we put aside and use it to not only bless us and our families… but also those who He will send our way.
Disasters, judgments, and punishments are unpleasant things to experience—but they are also opportunities for God’s glory to shine forth, for refinement, growth and maturity.
All things work together for the good
Romans 8:28 says,
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
So no matter what comes we know that it will work together for our good!
