In these days, the voice of God is more and more clear saying:
Joel 3:10, 14 (NASB) “Beat your plowshares into swords And your pruning hooks into spears; Let the weak say, “I am a mighty man.”
Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision.”
For those who have been receiving Word messages through the Daily Devotion Ps. Steven Agustinus and truly ‘immersed themselves’, and continue to rub the message until it is truly planted in your life – influencing your perspective, attitude of heart and basis for your belief- , The Word has reprinted the aspects of your consideration and decision making, so that any negative data and facts that are not in harmony with the Word promises, will never shake your faith.
So this is the time for you to be raised by God to help the nations in the valley of decision to be able to make decisions which is aligned with God’s agenda or plan for the nations. This is the time for you to help the nations decide to become a ‘sheep nation’ and be saved by His grace!
How to? Share the Words we have received to become the basis of their beliefs as well. There are many people who live in fear and despair these days. Not to mention the intimidation of the enemy through the Coronavirus outbreak throughout the world. This all makes many people are ‘in the valley of decision’. They should immediately ‘ return to God’ but there are many of them ‘don’t know the way to return to God’.
This is time for us to become their ‘Sign’ and ‘wonder’. That is why, I am sure, with the Words continuously stay within you, you will always be in joy and peace that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds. You become the ‘sign’ for the nations because you are ‘distinct’. God is always real in your life; God still works to answer prayers.
The reality of His presence is the safest refuge in the entire universe! Therefore do not ‘cover up the light’ which is coming upon you by joining in being afraid or uneasy with the conditions that are currently happening to the nations!
It is the time for the whole church to rise in the power of the Spirit and serve those who are exposed to the virus of fear and despair! “… let the helpless say: I am a mighty man!”
Maybe we keep asking: “How to do? The government has been asserted to stay away from the crowd, and do social distancing”.
That’s the reason sometimes I feel sad, many believers are ‘lack of creativity’. We intend to serve as many as possible, strengthen them, lead them to keep walking in the light of the Word and not panic and make wrong decisions, but we are constrained by circumstances – social distancing. Remember, we do not want to neglect government directives, but we must have the resolve to keep on doing what is directed by the Holy Spirit.
Therefore we can use technological advancement. Call acquaintances, friends, family members, neighbors or anyone who interacts with you. Make a video call or write a short message to them whether on FB, IG, SMS, TWITTER or other media. Share the Word with them! Let us help our government to break the fear virus spread that has actually happened more massively!
Stop talking about numbers of the Coronavirus victims . Stop talking about country A or B being locked down or any other negative news. This is the time we need to share the protection that God offers through the ‘seal of the Word’ (Revelation 7 and 9).
This is the time for us to strengthen, comfort and give accurate direction that turns people’s hearts and minds to be more optimistic in looking at the future – because God still plans a glorious future for His chosen people!
I encourage all of you who receive this message to ‘put the light that God has given in your life’ in its right place: On a lampstand.
Luke 11:33 (NET) “No one after lighting a lamp puts it in a hidden place or under a basket, but on a lampstand, so that those who come in can see the light.”
This is the time for us to begin to take the position that God has set: Become the light of God in the midst of nations that have been ruled by darkness! Speak, cry out what we believe, even though there will be many people mock you – but that happens because they cannot understand or see from God’s perspective. It is our task to help them ‘see’ what we ‘see’. #I Love God
