Put your feet up!

George Whittenby George Whitten

Isaiah 66:1-2 Thus saith the LORD, The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that ye build unto me? and where is the place of my rest? For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the LORD: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word.

Last night, in our hotel room in England, was this really nice lounge chair … and it reminded me of this passage in Isaiah.

The scripture says God’s captain chair, His throne, is in heaven… and his footstool is right here on earth! This planet is God’s footstool. That means everything – the mountains, the rivers, oceans, your home, under His feet…but, more than that, your problems, your worries, your fears – they are all under His feet as well!

So stop worrying and relax – give those problems over to God, kick up your feet, and rest in Him, realizing that every issue you’re dealing with is also truly under His feet, and that He never slumbers or sleeps!

Your family in the Lord with much agape love

The Sword Of The Builders

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

In the days of Nehemiah, the enemies of Israel sought to stop the building of Jerusalem. But the builders responded by carrying their building materials in one hand and holding a weapon in the other. They weren’t going to stop building because of their enemies or because of the conflict or the opposition formed against them. They just took up a weapon in one hand and kept building with the other.

This is crucial. If you serve the Lord, if you’re doing His will, you will have problems, obstacles, oppositions, setbacks, and things meant to discourage you. But here’s the key— no matter what’s against you, no matter the setback or problem or conflict, no matter the discouragement, don’t get wrapped up in the problem or that which is against you. You just keep building and keep moving forward. The attacks are negative, but the work is positive. Those who always tear down will never build anything. But you are called for better things. Pick up your sword, take up your hammer, keep going, build His kingdom, and fulfill your calling.

Today’s Mission – Today, pick up your sword and your hammer and get on with building up the kingdom and fulfilling your calling.
