We serve a great big God! God is all knowing and uses His people on one side of the world to be used clear across on the other side....amazing!
While J was in Africa we were having some issues come our way. One day it was becoming a large issue and major prayer was happening and I was asking God what His plan was.
This very day I was sitting out on the deck watching my kiddos and the phone rang. It was a wonderful lady from our church that I really do not know that well but what I do know, I highly respect. I have seen her be nothing but loving and love Jesus so sweetly, rooted firmly in the Word.
She quickly said I have a verse the Lord has impressed upon my heart for you today. Isaiah 54:17 (New International Version)
17 no weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and this is their vindication from me,"declares the LORD.
She went onto say she was impressed to repeat NO tongue that accuses will prevail! Then she said "OK Bye!" I stood there in shock - how did she know? We had not said a word to any of our church family yet. Well, she did not know, God did! God used an obedient child of His to help direct comfort and strengthen His other children.
This word from the Lord has taken on so many meanings, as usually a word from the Lord does, so multi faceted. In that moment I thought it applied to the current happening in Africa but even still I find myself meditating and taking comfort in it - Thank you Jesus for giving us just what we need in EVERY situation, Your word is my daily bread, the lamp unto my feet.
