“I will climb up to my watchtower and stand at my guard post. There I will wait to see what the Lord says and how he will answer my complaint.Then the Lord said to me, “Write my answer plainly on tablets, so that a runner can carry the correct message to others. The vision is for a future time. It describes the end and it will be fulfilled . It seems slow in coming, wait patiently, for it will surely take place. It will not be delayed.” Habakkuk 2:1-3 NewLiving Translation
“And then God answered:”Write this. Write what you see. Write it out in big block letters so that it can be read on the run. The vision-message is a witness pointing to what’s coming-it can hardly wait!And it doesn’t lie. If it seems slow in coming, wait.It’s on its way. It will come right on time.”Habakkuk 2:1-3 Message Bible
God is asking us to be watchmen and women for our families, cities and lands. In this time of great stress and heartache when the world is turned upside down He is asking us to watch. He wants us to be focused and to listen to what His spirit is saying to our hearts. He is calling us to write this down in a prominent place so others can receive his help.
We are at the brink of Passover, the time to celebrate God’s deliverance from Egypt for the Jews and for believers in Jesus. God says in Exodus 6-12 MSG:”I will rescue from slavery. I will redeem you, intervening with great acts of judgement. I’ll take you as my own people and be God to you.We are instructed to take a lamb without blemish for our households. We are instructed to choose Jesus, the perfect spotless Lamb who was slain before the foundations of the world. We are instructed to put his blood on the doorposts of our homes and hearts throught the act of communion, believing in his power to save us.”
Prayer: God I choose Your son Jesus as the Lamb for my household. Deliver us from this plague the Covid-19 virus. Redeem us. I choose salvation through Jesus Christ. Deliver my household. Deliver my finances. Intervene. Help. Rescue. Heal. I humble myself before you God. There is none like You God who is able to save to the uttermost. I choose to watch and be on guard for my household in Jesus’name amen.
