Day 87 Movement Control Order – “Strategic Psalm 91 Watch”
“This is what the LORD says: Do not go up to fight against your brothers, the Israelites. Go home, every one of you, for this is my doing.”
1 Kings 12:24.
C.A Fox said, “The disappointments of life are simply the hidden appointments of love.”
In the above scripture passage, the four words, “this is my doing” are powerful words. When we let the truths of these words sink into our inner being, any storm clouds that may arise will shine with glory and the rough places you may have to walk will be made smooth. Consider the following statements:-
When trials attack you, and the enemy comes “like a pent up flood” (Isaiah 59:19), that “this is my doing” and that your weakness needs My strength and your safety lies in letting Me fight for you.
Are you in difficult circumstances, surrounded by people who do not understand you, never ask your opinion and always push you aside? “This is my doing.” I am using them to mould you! You did not come to this place by accident – you are exactly where I meant for you to be.
Are you having problems with money, finding it hard to make ends meet? “This is my doing,” for I am the One who keeps your finances, and I want you to learn to depend upon Me. My supply is limitless and I will meet all your needs (Phil. 4:19)
When we trust God enough and believe nothing escapes His notice and that God works in both good and bad circumstances, then you will face every situation with better poise, calm and peace upon your hearts.
In this difficult season, let us trust Him that in every situations – “this is His doing!”
