Son, put this in your storeroom where the gems of truth are kept. I keep My Word and will do exactly what I have said. It will happen at just the time. Understand that in the days ahead I am the God who will provide for you. Yahweh-Yireh: “THE LORD WILL PROVIDE!” When you do not withhold a thing from Me, I know you truly fear Me.
Don’t be afraid. Take courage. I am here with you! When you see the strong winds of turmoil and the waves of opposition, don’t be terrified and began to shrink back. They are not as powerful as they appear to be. If you weigh them on the scales, they are lighter than a breath of air.
I called you to be a watchman, and you will face hostility even from My own children. They will say that you are crazy, and a fool! They will reject what I tell you to say and refuse to listen or obey. These children of Mine who refuse to listen have made covenants with Me that they do not keep, or even intended to. They spout empty words instead of faithful words. Therefore, injustice springs up in their land.
Now is the time to obey Me by planting the good seeds of righteousness, and you will harvest a crop of love. I know that some of My children will listen, but since they don’t have deep roots in My Word, they won’t last long. Some will fall away as soon as they have problems or are persecuted for believing My Word. Some will forget My words because it is crowded out by the worries of this life and the lure of wealth. Then there are those children of Mine who understand My Word and obey it; they will produce a harvest of good fruit.
Lord, it will be a terrible day when the day of payment comes. Our sin is great, and we are harvesting a thriving crop of sins. Today people’s hearts are hard, they refuse to listen, and they have closed their eyes to what is going on. Now we will have to eat the fruit of our lies.
Lord, help me to wait quietly before You, for all my hope is in You.
