This is too good not to share! I saw a revolving door, going around and around. People stepped into it, went around, then stepped out. The door kept revolving around and around. Again, people stepped into it, went around, then stepped out.
But wait …. I noticed something quite strange. These were not different people. Instead, the very same people kept stepping in and out, over and over again. How ridiculous- like what is wrong with these people!
Revelation. The revolving door represents a double mindedness. James 1:6-8 It’s the “I can…..I can’t; I will…..I won’t…..Yes….No.” thought process. It is a mixture of uncertainty, dread, and fear. No matter all the wonderful prophetic words re 2018 – many people are vacillating / wavering in their decisions. This is all about major stuff: family, marriage, job, relationships, finances…To see our circumstances in the setting of current events promotes additional anxiety and fear.
This isn’t new to God. He’s got us covered! In 2 Thess 3:2 He acknowledges the presence of evil and the rampant hostility….but the next verse declares the reassurance of safety, “But the Lord is faithful, Who will establish you and guard you from the evil one.”
Read that again! It is God Himself Who establishes….sets us firmly…in the foundation of His Word! He gives us the grace to stand firm and strengthens us to believe His promises without wavering or doubt! We can trust in Him and be completely dependent upon Him because God is faithful! He won’t abandon His promises or purposes. Not only is He strengthening us to be immovable, He is
our Defender against evil, not just outwardly, but also gives us inner protection through His Holy Spirit!
What a deal…understanding this brings freedom! You will leave behind all the doubts anxiety and fears and no longer be caught in the revolving door syndrome! You will go forward with a new confidence, boldness and be filled with joy and unshakable peace! Yah…. God is with you!
