"I leave the gift of peace with you--my peace. Not the kind of fragile peace given by the world, but my perfect peace. Don't yield to fear or be troubled in your hearts--instead, be courageous!" (John 14:27) These are the same words Yehweh spoke to Joshua as he began taking the promised land for Israel! (read Joshua 1:8-9) As laid down lovers of Yeshua, we have peace in the chaos and trouble that abounds around us because we belong to a loving, merciful God! We possess a hope and the revelation of the Kingdom to share with others who are lost and searching for an answer in this hour. Our glorious destiny, from Paul's letter to the Romans, states he is convinced that any suffering we endure is less than nothing compared to the magnitude of glory that is about to be unveiled within us. The entire universe is standing on tiptoe, yearning to see the unveiling of God's glorious sons and daughters! Read Romans 8:18-30...What a time to be living!
I read a poem recently that made me sit back and reflect on why God loves me so much. He gave me His WORD! Here is the poem by Andre Rabe ..."Long before the first line of scripture was penned on papyrus scroll, the Word, unwritten, existed as the mind of God. Before the books were gathered collated as sacred text, the Word, intangible, invisible,was planning, was ordering the ages that were to come. This Word predates the Bible, this Word predates creation, this Word is alive and active and speaking still today." Psalm 23 says "He leads me beside still waters, and restores my soul" or "by the waters of reflection my soul REMEMBERS who I am." It's not so much revelation as it is REMEMBERING... "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you..."(Jer 1:5)
