he knows when the furnace is heated seven times harder than usual as in daniel chapter three i can know he still lights my way there is an almighty god and guide who knows and directs my whether they lead to a bitter water at the well of mara or to the joy and refreshment of the oasis at elam the way is dark to the egyptians yet has its own
02:07
pillar of cloud and fire for god's israel the furnace may be hot but not only can i trust the hand that lights the fire i can also have the assurance the fire will not consume but only refine and when the refining process is complete not a moment too soon or too late i will come forth as gold this gold is refined see job chapter 23
02:39
when i feel god is the farthest away he is often the nearest to me when my spirit grows faint within me it is you who knows my way this can also be found in psalm chapter 142. do we know of another who shines brighter than the most radiant sunlight who meets us in our room when the first waking light appears who has an infinitely tender and compassionate watchfulness over us throughout our day and who knows the way we take
03:12
the world during a time of adversity speaks of providence with a total lack of understanding they dethrone god our god our savior who is living who is a guiding sovereign god and savior of the universe they dethrone him to some inanimate dead abstraction what they call providence they see
03:42
as occurrences of fate reducing god from his position as our acting powerful and personal jehovah the pain would be removed for many of us is agonizing trial if only i could see what job saw during his time of severe affliction when all earthly hope laid dashed at his feet he saw nothing but the hand of god listen closely to this next part and consider what is happening in the land
04:17
right now god's hand behind the swords of the sabians who attacked his servants and cattle and behind the devastating lightning god's hand giving wings to the mighty desert winds which swept away his children and god's hand and the drivel silence of his shattered home thus seeing god in everything job could say the lord gave and the lord
04:48
has taken away may the name of the lord be praised see job chapter 1 yet his faith reached its zenith when the once powerful prince of the desert sat among the ashes and jobs could still say though he slay me i will trust him though he slay me yet i will hope in him see job 13 we all know brethren
05:21
that in the end because of job's faith not because of what all his friends said to him the accusing pointing fingers god told those friends even the wife that spoke ill of god job did not sin with his lips that said who can know the vastness the greatness the mind of the lord who could know all of his ways we are but man and i'm paraphrasing but i urge you to
06:04
go read the book of job because i see this day of affliction the day that we're in as the very day and can see us all sitting amongst the ashes in our grieving there are so many things going on right now and it grieves our hearts and we feel like we couldn't take on one more thing but if we can see god in it and know that in his word that he uses all evil for his good and see the outcome
06:36
for job the outcome that it speaks in the book of joel and amos all of these things will be restored as they were unto job for the faithful believer who endures and trusts the lord through the furnace of affliction and comes out without removing with the removing of the dross and coming out as fine gold being refined daniel in the book of daniel i believe it says
07:12
the wise shall understand but the wicked will not understand the wheat and the tares are becoming very apparent to us job through his faithfulness through the very fires of affliction stood in his assurance and his faith in our lord and savior he stood in the full armor of god and his faith and he believed and he trusted
07:48
even though everything around him his family his farm his animals they were taken he trusted the lord this is where this is what kind of faith and trust that we need to have for we fight not against flesh and blood brethren but we fight against spiritual principalities rulers of darkness spiritual wickedness in high places this is why it says above all take the
08:21
shield of faith so you can quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one amongst all the armor of god that you were to have on above all your shield of faith it is very important for us as busy as we are and as many adversities that we face that we get our time alone with the lord so that he can direct us through prayer and through his word and as busy as you may be and as sick as
08:53
you may be or whatever your situation even if it's 10 minutes even if you have to go hide yourself in the bathroom take your bible this is crucial it's not only necessary it is crucial for we will not be able to stand in our own power our own strength it will only be by his spirit and the word of god
09:27
is like bread can you imagine yourself going days without eating what kind of condition you would be in to take in the meat the word the word of god the word of god is powerful he will lead you in the reading of his word and don't ever stop praying for anyone you pray for every single person ask the holy spirit to lead you in prayer we are not the judge
10:12
one day the bible says that we will judge nations we are man we see through a glass darkly we prophesy and part the lord's thoughts and ways are much higher than ours pray pray for them pray for everyone who has put on your heart to pray for them you think your compassion and your love and your mercy that you have is great for the person that you're grieving for that you're
10:48
agonizing for think about how much more love and mercy and grace the lord has for them we see through a glass darkly i will never stop praying for someone i hope that that resonates in the spirits of many of you who have been wondering and i believe many of you know what i'm talking about the sword is in the land yes the sword
11:26
is in the land but i believe with my whole heart that as long as the lamp is burning in the life of someone and they have breath i will pray for them and i will pray psalm 91 over my household and i will believe in the power of our lord and savior and i will believe in the power of his protection and i will walk in that assurance of his promise
11:58
of his word not man his word i don't care what man tells me i live i breathe i have my being i walk and the trust and the assurance of our lord and savior jesus christ and his word and if you're not taking in the word and you're not getting time alone with the lord on a daily basis and days pass because you have been so busy that fire will not remain that faith will weaken
12:32
this is so important i prayed before i brought anything forth to you today that the lord would put on my heart what to say i thought it was so important to bring forth this devotional today and i tell you brethren there are people many many many many i've had this ministry for three and a half years that the lord has led me to bring forth words
13:06
dreams things i've shared with you but i have never in that three and a half years seen things where they are now [Music] the phone calls the emails of the completely destitute and broken and grieving and they these are among the brethren i can tell you i grieve too i get weak too none of us are above any of this but we have to reach out
13:48
to jesus we cannot count on man to heal our wounds and our grieving heart yes we are to lift one another up with the word of god as paul tells us but if the first thing you are doing is reaching out to a brother or sister in christ before you have taken all of your heart and your troubles before the lord i'm not trying to be mean i'm i'm trying to lift you up with this word
14:20
we have to turn to him first our strength comes from the lord not man there is an encouraging word that your brethren would be able to tell you there are words of scripture they will be able to give you they can pray for you yes but to lean on man is grievous in the sight of the lord there will come a time where we will not be able to communicate with one another
14:50
that is coming soon i don't know when but i know there will come a time where you will not be able to reach out to anyone and you will have your only option will be to cling to our lord and savior jesus christ we need to prepare for that now we need to prepare our hearts now for these things because things are happening so rapidly everything seems to be put on fast forward i do try to answer all the emails
15:34
calls or text messages but i'm i'm one person and i can't let it be at the expense of not taking my time with father but my heart is with you all and grieves for you all and knows many are going through the same things does it mean you can't write or you can't call or text no that's not at all what i'm saying it's grown and intensity is all
16:08
i'm saying i need my time with the lord too i grieve too i grieve greatly but this means we need more time for prayer more time for his word more time to go hide in the bathroom with their bibles or in our prayer closets wherever you can get if you have small children in the home it may be only during their nap time if they don't take naps it may be before they get up in the morning or after they
16:39
go to bed at night even if it's just for 30 minutes every minute is precious with the lord and he knows every person and every struggle i hope that this word i brought forth today encourages you i love you all with all of my heart and i am praying for each and every one of you every single one of you because many there's just so many going through very difficult times
17:16
but i implore you and urge you to go and read the book of job take the time even if you read it over a four day period if you just can't read it all at once from beginning to end and see the promises not only in job but all of the assurance and promises that are filled in his word even after the judgments of the prophets when the judgments came and the people of god in the end are delivered we will be delivered it may not be in
17:57
the way that the church has told you for the past 200 years where they unfortunately did not prepare a people to stand in the full armor of god in their faith during tribulation but that's another story all in of itself be strengthened by the lord and in the power of his might and i just thought of one more scripture to share with you and i will close philippians 4 6 through 8 be anxious for nothing but in everything
18:32
by prayer and supplication and with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto god and the peace of god which pathos passeth all understanding shall keep your hearts and minds through christ jesus finally brethren whatsoever things are true honest just pure lovely and of a good report if there be any virtue any praise think on these things i love you and i pray today that you
