Time to Make Up Your Bed!|
Strip before you Flip…
“The LORD will strengthen him upon the bed of languishing: thou wilt make all his bed in his sickness.”
It is the time of newness and a time to leave the old.
Our beds have been made with our sins…and it is time to strip them, before we can flip them into the newness of life. This is a time of new perspectives. Of new hopes and dreams…a new walk with God.
“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”
II Corinthians 5:17
The Holy Spirit is a wrinkle remover…what is your wrinkle? Humble yourselves before him.
“O LORD, thou hast searched me, and known me.
Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off.
Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways.
For there is not a word in my tongue, but lo, O LORD, thou knowest it altogether.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it.
Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?
If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.”
Psalm 139: 1-8
Strip yourselves bare so that the newness of God’s presence and the rain of his blessings may be upon you now and forevermore. Your peace will surround you like a blanket that is fastened tightly by your faith in his everlasting love.
“Therefore he said unto Judah, Let us build these cities, and make about them walls, and towers, gates, and bars, while the land is yet before us; because we have sought the LORD our GOD, we have sought him, and he hath given us rest on every side. So they built and prospered. ”
II Chronicles 14:7
