WHEN YOU ARE SHAKEN
And you shall remember the whole way that the Lord your God has led you these forty years in the wilderness, that he might humble you, testing you to know what was in your heart, whether you would keep his commandments or not. Deuteronomy 8:2
My Word has been sown into your heart as seeds. But your enemy is relentless, always plotting ways to steal them. He will send driving rains and scorching heat to kill my Word.
What does a farmer do if the seed is stolen? He replants. He tenderly nurtures the seed until it takes root. So you must do when you are tired and the seed is fragile. Affirm my work. Revisit my visitations. Review our history. In doing so, you will recover your heart and your joy.
What do two people do when their relationship is plagued with insecurity, when they are in want of confidence? They read old love letters, close their eyes and remember declarations of love and loyalty. In the review, their faith is renewed and their breathing slows once again. You need to stand on holy ground. Remove your shoes.
