The Lord is on our side.
Just as He was the Israelites.
Even when they were in captivity.
Even when they felt oppressed.
Even when they saw no way out.
Yahweh of Hosts is His name.
The Lord who commands the angel armies.
And He fervently pleads our case.
Which means, He is like our attorney.
Even though the sins we committed
offended His heart, still He pleads our case.
So that He might bring rest to the earth.
God does not desire that we live
in a world of offense and upheaval.
God does not desire that we just survive
day to day in the chaotic scramble
of To-Do lists and errands...
constantly stressed and overwhelmed.
God does not desire that we barely get by
overrun by debt and debt collectors.
God does not desire that we hide from
the shame of our past or the secrets
we hope no one hears or discovers.
Our God desires to BRING REST
not just to us, but to the whole earth.
let the Lord fight our battles.
cry out to the Lord of Hosts
who has an army ready to defend us.
trust that God is on our side.
accept the forgiveness He offers
and live in the peace He provides.
For He is Our Fervent Advocate!
from my heart...
I write as an overflow... an expression of my true love for God and with a deep desire to encourage others in their day to day lives. For we can only find peace, joy, and satisfaction when we yield to the One who yielded His life for us.
