Your Father's Response To Your Cry For Help
Free from your physical body in mortal time and space, you
find yourself in the spirit floating just outside Earth's atmosphere. You see all around you the picturesque familiar forms of the universe and find it overwhelming to your temporal mind.
Looking far off in the
direction of heaven, you see the distant expanse of paradise. You are moved emotionally by the radiant peace and tranquility you feel throughout your being. It is immense, glorious and inviting.
Yet, suddenly, you
are struck by the powerful eruption of a sonic blast resonating from God's home. Curiosity captivates you with marvel and you wonder, "What was that?!"
Beloved, it is your Father's response to your
cry and it has shaken the universe! In His sanctuary He has heard your cry - your cry has reached His ears.
Summoned By Your Cry
How does the Father respond when you cry to Him for help? Does He hear you?
Yes, He hears your cry and His reply is terrifying to your enemies. As He moves to answer your call He does so with everything He is, causing an eruption of His strength in the heavens.
God is never threatened by the
impossibility of your need. No, He devours impossibility with the intensity of His presence. Without hesitation, He moves to challenge any impossible situation you ask Him to.
Because, "Greater is HE who is in
you than he who's in this world" 1 John 4:4.
Hell has made you it's target and has boasted of its approaching victory over you, "We will bring them down and they will never stand again." Your
enemies are powerful and full of force, seemingly unstoppable. Your victory seems impossible yet, in your despair you cry out to your God.
In your distress and heartache, you cry to Him and pray to Him for
The very second you turn to Him, the moment your heart cries out to Him for help, He hears you. All of heaven stops as His attention is on you as His ears turn to your cry.
Suddenly, heaven is ignited
with the fury of His rage against your enemies (Psalm 7:6).
Fierce flames burst forth from His mouth and smoke roars from His nostrils. Heaven and earth are alit with the fire of His wrath and burning coals explode
forth in a blaze of power. The universe shakes and shudders at the sound of His anger.
Descending On the Storm Clouds
With urgency, He breaks open the heavens and summons the storm clouds
to conduct His descent to earth. He is cloaked in great dark clouds that blow as with the wings of the wind. Shrouded in the storm clouds of heaven, He veils His approach to the earth. Shielding the brightness of His glory,
He rains down hail and burning coals with the thunder of His voice.
The earth quakes in alarm as His voices explodes in thunderous anger. Amid a hail of firing arrows, He scatters your so-called "powerful"
enemies in utter panic and confusion - from a blast of His breath they are dried up and laid bare.
When at last He reaches His beloved child, His countenance changes as He reaches into the pit of pain and despair to
rescue you from your enemies' trap. Though you were weak and your enemies were fierce, He rescues you because He delights in you.
You are simply overwhelmed by His loving faithfulness and declare with a heart
brimming with thankfulness, "That's why I take pleasure in my weaknesses, and in the insults, hardships, persecutions, and troubles that I suffer for Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong,"( 2
In the perfect flow of His justice, He restores your innocence and makes you blameless in His sight. Though the entire world be convinced of your guilt and failure, with one word from your Father
you stand cleansed by the word of light released with the cleansing fire of His magnificent glory.
He makes you strong to stand even under the great weight of His glory and molds you into a fearless warrior prepared
for the day of battle. Through the strength of your testimony, you rip through the barrages of the enemy and rescue those who've been duped by his lies.
Your cry changes from one of need of help to one of need
only of more of His love and friendship. To know Him deeper is your hearts cry, for you know that it is He who has made you as surefooted as the dear standing on the mountain's top and you will not stop until your
enemies are scattered (Psalm 18).
The world is being blanketed by layers of fear that grow daily, and equally, so too our trust in God must increase. We will not succumb to the lies of
the world we live in, for this is NOT our home. Our home is in Christ, we live in Him - we are safe and secure in the arms of our Beloved. We will not relent - we WILL trust our God - He will NEVER forsake us. He will never
For, "The Lord frustrates the plans of the nations and thwarts all their schemes. But the Lord's plans stand firm forever; his intentions can never be shaken," Psalm 33:10-11.
So, "We put our hope in the Lord. He is our help and our shield. In Him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in His holy name. Let your unfailing love surround us, Lord, for our hope is in You alone" (Psalm 33:20-22). Stand your ground - stand firm in your faith.
Let the Devil do his level best, let him try and kill us, for we are entering the days of God's justice. The heavens will roar and the earth will tremble, because our God will reveal His intentions to the nations and they will not be shaken. Suddenly, you will no longer be mocked by the world because of your faith in God, you will become their refuge.
