Take Heed and Be Quiet!
“And say unto him, Take heed, and be quiet; fear not, neither be fainthearted for the two tails of these smoking firebrands, for the fierce anger of Rezin with Syria, and of the son of Remaliah.” Isaiah 7:4
The word of God to a believer should be likened to a precious jewel such as gold. The concept of God carries an unimaginable power in which one cannot understand, the same way a little child will cherish the word of his or her father, so are we Christians meant to nurture the word of God, by studying, meditating and putting it into use.
Putting it into practice is where most believers find challenging, one can study the word of God, one can listen to the word of God, but until that word becomes Rhema that people can see in one’s life, then we are not there yet. When you consulted God’s words for your life, some circumstances that supposed to bothered you after you pray will actually become the joy of the Lord for you. It may be a health issue or some other issues of life; you will know that is it God’s desire for you to pass through some of these things at times.
If you can hold it firmly by trusting in the word of God altogether. 2 Cor 5:7 says, “For we walk by faith, not by sight.” Don’t allow the devil to dictate to you how you should live your life, or allow any external influences to influence your thoughts about the faithfulness in Christ Jesus. If you are going through a difficult time, remember that God has given us the ability to overcome all.
Rise up in faith over that situation you are going through, find out what the will of God is for you on that issue, that is taking heed to instructions, and hold your peace by being quiet. Christianity is not just any religion, it is a supernatural ability to live like God on earth, if the word of God is not yet real to you, you need to get it right now. Exodus 14:14 says, “The LORD will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.”
1. Thank God for his faithfulness over your life.
2. Pray for the grace to trust in the lord completely amidst the perils of this world
