The Lord Draws Near

I came across a website whose writer plunges into places few
wish to walk. I put a quote below and will post the site at the
end of this blog. Sabine covers a lot of ground and gives the
reader opportunities to explore other areas.

'Because you have kept the word of My perseverance, I 
will also keep you from the hour of testing, that hour which 
is about to come upon the whole world, to test those who
dwell upon the earth. I am coming quickly; hold fast what
you have, in order that no one take your crown. 
(Rev 3:10,11)

'The Lord draws near to him into the understanding that He
works all worldly things according to His purpose, and 
invites us to abide in the presence of His gracious, loving 
Spirit ruling our personal lives as well.

At times I struggle with fear including fear of the unknown,
rejection at large and by Him eventually, trickling down to 
the well-being of my children and fate of (as yet unsaved) 
loved ones, and friends, and often seek the Lord for 
re(assurance), for deliverance from fear induced fight, flight 
and freeze, and letting go of the need to be in control and 
pray to come into proper alignment.

Nearing Him in spirit, knowing how near He actually is 
and cares for every detail in our lives, eases, settles and heals. 
Our time is not in our hands, nor in the enemy's. We are not to 
fear men's judgements, but may enjoy great expectations of 
what the Lord has and will undertake for us and our loved 
ones in these end times especially.

He, through His Word, Spirit and diligent servants, gives us 
ample insight into events unfolding and offers us security in 
both knowing and understanding times and our responsiveness, 
yet invites us also to be grateful and content with what is all 
ready established, revealed and matters sealed. His future 
promises and blessings are rock solid, kept by his unchanging, 
loving nature extending toward us. Whatever we yield and 
whomever we lay in His hands, knowing our time on earth is 
nearly ending as well.'
