Saw these friendly workers on a recent trip through a small village. They were destroying this house in order to make way for something new. They stopped to shout”Hello” and waved to us funny looking westerners walking by!
The Lord is making way for something new in the days ahead! I believe He is tearing down the old house of legalism and lifeless traditions, and making way for fresh revelations of His love and grace. He is friendly in doing so, as well. When it is the Lord’s work, it is refreshing to receive, like the smiles we got from those workers. It is not so when the devil is destroying. The devil is the thief that comes to steal, kill, and destroy (John 10:10). Do not attribute pain and tragedy to the Lord- Jesus came to bring life and life abundantly!
The Lord is friendly to us, but He is not friendly to the devil. He is in the process of bringing down the devil’s house. The times are trying, but be encouraged- the kingdom of God will indeed be revealed on this earth. For now we walk in it by faith. Here’s to a faith-filled 2011. Happy New Year!
