Regarding the Time
Based on Isaiah 43-44; Psalm 110:3; Proverbs 26:9 and Galatians 4:1-31.
Father in heaven, all around us is being shaken and rattled, and it feels like almost everything is falling part. Yet we hear You saying to us whom You have redeemed, "Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are Mine." You say You appointed the things that are now coming and shall continue to come, and that we are neither to fear nor to be afraid. Yo say to us, "Have I not told you ... and declared it?"
Those who do not know and do not understand are unable to see, for You have shut their eyes and their hearts. We do not know why You chose us to turn from feeding on ashes, to replace our deceivede hearts with a heart for You, O God, but we are grateful You have done it. You are our Redeemer, Who formed us in the womb, Who has regenerated us to tranform us by hand-feeding us Your Word in the womb of the morning.
Thank You for sending forth Your Son, born to redeem those whose were under the law to receive adoption as Your sons and daughters, to be made heirs of God through Christ. Thank You for regenerating us by Second Birth and for helping us obtain the mind of Christ until He is formed in us. Thank You for choosing us to be Your children, no longer children of the bondwoman, but children of the free. We, the children of Your promise, promise You our bodies, these earthsuits, these vessels, for You to inhabit and use any way You want. We will go wherever You lead, and we will not be afraid as You reverse the curse. All will be well! You already told us! The time is short! The time is now!
