I was listening to a TV evangelist and he read Isa. 35:1-9 & Job 29:6. Days seem to be really hard for me lately, so many changes that I need answers to. There has been such an emptiness in me that needs filling. So as I was channel flicking I ended up on TBN. He was speaking about "a change in the atmosphere", that he has noticed. He gave an example of in the natural we can sense the change in the seasons and we can also sense a change in the spirit realm. He referenced…
1The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose.
2It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing: "the glory of Lebanon" shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon, they shall see the glory of the LORD, and the excellency of our God.
3Strengthen ye the weak hands, and confirm the feeble knees.
4Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompense; he will come and save you.
5Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.
6Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert.
7And the parched ground shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of water: in the habitation of dragons, where each lay, shall be grass with reeds and rushes.
8And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.
So the climate changes in the natural as well as the supernatural. It changes in our lives which is connected to the spirit realm. We have to be able to sense the change. That is why we have to meditate on his word daily and walk in the spirit as well as die to the flesh.
It says in the...
2. solitary places
the Glory of Lebanon (the spiritual goodness and truth) shall come into these places and blossom ABUNDANTLY. The Glory of Lebanon is the sign of "spiritual goodness and truth." I must continue to believe God for his spiritual goodness and truth in my life in every situation
Provision has been made available to me, in the worse circumstances he will bring life out of it. I have to believe life will come to the most dead situations I am facing. He says he will never leave me or forsake me. The wilderness, solitary places,the desert, those are unproductive hard harsh places to be in BUT he says those places will rejoice. Meaning in those places I can still experience the joy of the Lord.
Verse 8 says, there shall be a highway there, that to me is a way of escape. I Corinthians 10:13 speaks of how I am to experience his way of escape it says,
13There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
The amplified version says,
13For no temptation (no trial regarded as enticing to sin), [no matter how it comes or where it leads] has overtaken you and laid hold on you that is not common to man [that is, no temptation or trial has come to you that is beyond human resistance and that is not adjusted and adapted and belonging to human experience, and such as man can bear]. But God is faithful [to His Word and to His compassionate nature], and He [can be trusted] not to let you be tempted and tried and assayed beyond your ability and strength of resistance and power to endure, but with the temptation He will [always] also provide the way out (the means of escape to a landing place), that you may be capable and strong and powerful to bear up under it patiently.
1. It won’t be beyond my ability and strength of resistance and power to endure it
2. I will be capable, strong and powerful to bear up under it, Patiently!
We must continue to believe God for his spiritual goodness and truth in our lives in every situation and remember you too have a way of escape already provided for you.
Keep The FAITH!
