a season of change
March 21, 2020
“The almond tree budding forth is the evidence of the words I have spoken unto you, unto my people, the word of the Lord coming to pass. I the Lord look over my word closely to perform it.
It’s a new season, a season of change and of the evidence of my very words budding forth new life. What was barren, what was dormant, what was hidden shall now bring forth much good and abundant fruit.
Am I not in the midsts of the garden, am I not the light, am I not the life that brings for the root and the branch? Is is not I that plants the seed and brings them forth in their harvest time?
I am the Lord of the harvest. I bring forth good fruit into my barns, I harvest the wheat of the fields and I alone bring the rains in due time.
Stand fast a watch the salvation of your God, stand tall and watchful at the signs and wonders I shall do in your midst, for shall I not dwell among my people? shall I not dwell among my camp of the righteous?
What can I not do? What would man say to me that I can not accomplish? Where was man when I laid the foundations of the earth? Where was he when I parted the water to bring forth dry land for man to dwell upon? Where was he when I spoke into the darkness the light?
All the earth is mine, those who dwell in it and those that creep upon it’s ground. Man does not fully know me, nor my ways, for my ways are above your ways and my thoughts are not your thoughts.
I am a good Father unto my children, I am watchful over them in all their ways, in their comings and goings. Have you ever seen my children begging for bread in the streets? Those who seek me, those who come to me and ask for a loaf of bread would I give unto them a stone? If one of my little ones came unto me and asked for a fish would I give him a serpent? I shall surely feed my sheep and water the lambs, I am the good shepherd to those who follow me.
You shall lack in nothing for it is I that goes before you, it is that delivers you from Egypt, it is I that shall fight for you and part the seas before your very eyes. Nothing will stand in my way and so nothing shall stand in your way, I’m making the way before you to walk it.
Lift up your eyes to the hills, lift up your voice of song, lift up the banner, your deliverer is coming!”
I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come?
My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot be moved; he who keeps you will not slumber.
Behold, he who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord is your keeper; the Lord is your shade on your right hand.
The sun shall not strike you by day, nor the moon by night.
The Lord will keep you from all evil; he will keep your life.
The Lord will keep your going out and your coming in from this time forth and forevermore.
When Pharaoh drew near, the people of Israel lifted up their eyes, and behold, the Egyptians were marching after them, and they feared greatly. And the people of Israel cried out to the LORD. They said to Moses, “Is it because there are no graves in Egypt that you have taken us away to die in the wilderness? What have you done to us in bringing us out of Egypt? Is not this what we said to you in Egypt: ‘Leave us alone that we may serve the Egyptians’? For it would have been better for us to serve the Egyptians than to die in the wilderness.” And Moses said to the people, “Fear not, stand firm, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will work for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall never see again. The LORD will fight for you, and you have only to be silent.” The LORD said to Moses, “Why do you cry to me? Tell the people of Israel to go forward. Lift up your staff, and stretch out your hand over the sea and divide it, that the people of Israel may go through the sea on dry ground. And I will harden the hearts of the Egyptians so that they shall go in after them, and I will get glory over Pharaoh and all his host, his chariots, and his horsemen. And the Egyptians shall know that I am the LORD, when I have gotten glory over Pharaoh, his chariots, and his horsemen.”
And the word of the LORD came to me, saying, “Jeremiah, what do you see?” And I said, “I see an almonda branch.” Then the LORD said to me, “You have seen well, for I am watching over my word to perform it.” Jeremiah 1
I have been young, and now am old, yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken or his children begging for bread. Psalm 37
“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened. Or which one of you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a serpent? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him!
