In the darkness of a waning world I look around to see who is in the vane of despair which has enveloped mankind.
I recognize deep pain deep sorrow, fear abounds in the hearts of many.
Confusion and uncertainty reigns supreme building and feeding a state of paranoia.
One pair of eyes fix on me noting the quiet peace that surrounds me the stillness within my frame as well a light emanating outward drawing those eyes to be fixed on me. As I look into them I see a desire to know this peace I am demonstrating.
The question comes, “why is there such a peace about you”?
Why is your spirit not appearing concerned about your future? What is there you have that I do not?
In a moment of gentleness I reveal why I walk with such comfort when all around me all are in turmoil filled with fear filled and confusion.
They are putting on a good appearance about life being well with them; but you can recognize it is not.
I know my words must be gentle but showing caring towards the spirit before me.
Gently I explain I am wrapped in the wings of one who loves and cares for me, and assure he will not let anything come or stand against me because they can see his light shining out of me.
They respond, approval stating they can feel the warmth and within the light, their spirit being soothed and brought to a peace, they have never felt before. They express a feeling I care what happens to them, however are not sure they understand why.
They ask if I fear becoming ill or dying as the virus is so active. And are surprised at my answer, I can see the bewilderment in their eyes, why there is no fear in my being. Again I gently explain I am wrapped in the wings of one who loves and cares for me, and will not let anything harm me.
Once again explain my walk with God and my trust of all the promises He has said would be there if I believe and trust he would never lie to me.
I continue stating why would I not trust him what do I have to lose if I do.
His words in the scriptures revealed if I would put all my trust (faith) in him the following would happen, so in my heart I stated, “ok,” I will believe you will do as you said. From that moment I realized there was no more fear, anger, or emptiness in my life, but I recognized other people being filled with fear, confusion and anger all around me.
Then I recognized a different understanding of why there was no fear as a calm came over me which brought an acknowledgement I was being loved and cared for, it was one I had never experienced before in my life.
I realized what I was experiencing was the trust I had in His promises and as I realized the truth of turning my life over to Him that the fear of the unknown disappeared and was replaced with a deepening trust (faith).
From that moment nothing was going to come between us. Here, is when my personal relationship began. Here is where my quest to know what faith provides.
There are two pools to drink from. And as such there are two who lead those desiring to drink, to one of those pools. Here, we see the pastures of green grass flourishing in both, and when we look into these pastures, we see one where the sheep graze in contentment, and occasionally one is lead to the pool as an example for the others to drink.
The other pasture is lush and green, and the flock grazes leisurely. However, we notice there is no pool, yet the flock is content and continues to graze.
The answer to the initial question is who is leading the sheep to the pool and what story was used to convince those of the flock to follow this leader to the pasture with the pool.
The caution here is as we become learned, we do not become easily lead by those, who want to, as trusting sheep, bring us to their pool to drink from continuously.
In our wisdom, if we as a part of the flock, recognize as one of the sheep, there are those who don’t need to go to the pool to drink, and perhaps check with them, why?”
It is a great pleasure when one of the sheep in the pasture recognizes I no longer go to a pool and queries “why.” When we share how the spring within sustains us and the peace it brings for us to be in this Shepherd’s pasture. Able to graze leisurely without fear knowing there is nothing to fear and there will be even greener pastures to graze in.
I through the “Eyes of Faith,” now see my Shepherd watching over His flock of sheep, am filled with overwhelming joy as I see and hear the angels rejoicing as another sheep joins the flock because I shared from my spring that they may never thirst again and will graze in peace.
Remember, these messages are given by a humble servant obedient unto our Lord Yeshua as a “Watchman.” This I pray for all. ”Our Heavenly Father brings us to the river which bringeth forth fruit so we may partake of its sustenance and be filled spiritually with nurturing wisdom, and humble dedication in service to Yeshua.“ “Blessings to All.” As you go forward in peace, knowledge, and strength. In the name of Yeshua, we pray Amen and Amen.
