On a fast-track. Time measured – write. What's the message? Skip decoration.
In 'Judges', writing this while listening to something… the news and alarm.
All we'd need for some relative peace and prosperity – judges. We've little and less so. The increasing disregard for the rule of law is quickening… by those purporting to rule.
Oh we frogs – feel the heat.
I'll turn it off. To tap to all – the v.few – reading this. Small numbers but big God. Of course, God isn't best described big but 'other'. Here and present, more and much, for those most attentive toward.
I write to the unseen, therefore less-accessible and attractive with the 'down to earth' as I go on.
Amen and amen.
Idols have power. Toxicity producing. We feed by default. It's up to us. No sense or need-felt to escape – guess what?
We have to pass through and out. Less jump… more – through. This in realising what's got us? Why though? Because God is real and the way through isn't – usually – instant deliverance. God-real and knowing so – is what we need. To ask God to be 'known' personally, should – promise is – bring discovery.
But there's idols obscuring and this we must pass through. Go in the direction towards God but understand, idols block the view. On the way, and even in any and all 'arrivals' but there is an escape plan.We only need to want it bad enough.
We ask and ask and… strain and struggle for better, for an out and into, another kind of living and life. For love. The idols might be all encompassing. But we are passing through. If we ask. God says? Will do. Will provide paths, ones we hardly believe we're on. But there is a purpose.
A key: We don't so turn 'from' idols as pass through by turning 'to' God. And in this, to war.
In Springtime when...
God show us a battle-plan. Our tailored own. Let's keep in mind to pray is the fight and we can, if you help us. We call out to be – caller-out-ers and so bring about, what saints of old, saw and did. We live in answer to prayer. We need answer… We need you. In Jesus – Name above. Amen again.
