S. O. A. P
Here’s your 90 second AM devotional!
I will make peace your governor and well-being your ruler.
Here the Prophet Isaiah prophesies the future state of Israel and the Church of the New Testament. It’s an amazing prophecy because both Israel and the New Testament Zion or Church have been through battle after battle after battle. In recent times each has been the pursued and persecuted. Even so, Isaiah foresees a time of Peace and Prosperity for each.
I’ve always believed that prophecy is given so that people may run towards the HOPE they hear in the prophetic word. Let’s bring all of this down to you. Through all of your own personal trials and challenges you’ve held to the “Little Hope” you have versus believing all the hopelessness people have poured into you. You have had people say to you … “Just give up, nothing is going to change.” But you haven’t given up, and just like the Israelites of old and the persecuted church around the world today you keep remembering God’s hopeful word to you that says … “Peace will be your Governor and Prosperity will be your Ruler.” And that’s when you always say … “I’m Counting On It Lord!”
Today I’m counting on Your word of HOPE to me, and not the hopelessness of all the Naysayers around me. Amen
