As I was finishing up my morning prayers yesterday, I said, “Lord, I’ve been doing all the talking, what do You want to say to me today?” The Grandfather Clock in the entry hall was chiming and the Lord spoke two words… “It’s time”. I asked Him, “What is it time for?” “What are You saying?”…
Ecclesiastes 3:1 To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven.

What is it time for in your life? What does God want to say to you today?

I received an email this morning saying my brother is going to have surgery to remove a cyst on his spine. I don't really know what his relationship is with the Lord because last time I tried to talk to him about it, he was very combative. My brother Mark has a good heart, but somewhere along the way something happened to him and he has built walls around his emotions and he has "no entry" posted all over them. Please pray for Mark's walk with the Lord today, and for a miracle in his body so he doesn't have to have surgery on March 3rd.

No matter what happens in your life, in the life of your family or in our country, no matter if it’s a time of trouble, a time of love, an evil time… God is a stabilizing force in the midst of uncertain times.
Isaiah 33:6 Wisdom and knowledge will be the stability of your times, and the strength of salvation; the fear of the LORD is His treasure.

I found comfort and rest in His Word and my faith has grown by hearing the Word… God says that faith comes alive by hearing the Word, so read it out-loud to yourself and let your faith grow. Remember the power of God and the miracles He has done. Remember the things God has done for you personally, and increase your faith. He is good.
Isaiah 41:10 Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand… v13 For I, the Lord your God, will hold your right hand, saying to you, ‘Fear not, I will help you.’
