Encouragement comes in many forms. Two years ago, our family in Australia suffered an attack of high magnitude. As a tsunami of pain and disbelief consumed us, the Lord spoke clearly with Revelation 2:22.
Rev 2:22 I am about to lay her low, along with her partners, as they play their sex-and-religion games.
Rev 2:23 The bastard offspring of their idol-whoring I will kill. Then every church will know that appearances don't impress me. I x-ray every motive and make sure you get what's coming to you. The Message.
It was a hugely encouraging word, but God began to turn this word into regular hugs from Him, on both sides of the Pacific. All of us experienced daily 2:22's flashed at us. From digital clocks, to numberplates, to signposts. We began to laugh, every time another 2:22 would appear. The Lord was continually reminding us that He is in control.
Thankyou, Lord, for your comfort... even when we're not looking for it.
