The Enemy Has Overplayed His Hand
The enemy, the devil, goes about like a roaring lion (1 Peter 5:8) right now.
He wants to steal and attack the two things that God uses to dwell in mankind: the heart and the mind.
He is trying to take away all creative thoughts by fear, and all contacts people have with each other, by isolation. But he has OVERPLAYED HIS HAND!
Connection and Creativity are Arising
In this time of isolation people are connecting with each other by the internet, phone, even face to face as neighbors reach out to each other.
We are worshipping together, Churches are live streamed and we are connecting via live FaceTime feeds to pray together and praise together.
This time of isolation is allowing us to have more time to connect and be creative. It is allowing us to think of our neighbors in a new way and see where we can lend a helping hand to strangers.
Most of all, hopefully, we are spending more time in the Word and in the Presence of God. He is increasing revelation to those who are waiting on Him.
We have been forced into a time of quietness where the busyness and business of life seemed to overtake us. People are being forced to create new things for their children to do and are beginning to emerge.
Adults are using this time to let God-given ideas form and take root and birth new businesses and ways to increase income.
Be the Light
As long as we don’t succumb to fear and darkness, and we continue to seek the Light, we will continue to be productive in whatever area God has placed us in, in order to be shining ones wherever we are.
The light inside of us can’t be snuffed out if we feed it. Feed on The Word, cultivate the good soil within and let the fresh seeds God places in your imagination grow.
We have the choice to give in to the enemy’s plans and give up in despair, or to rest and shine, for Him.
The Glory of The LORD wants to dwell within us so we radiate His beauty in a dark world. Yes, He is making all things new! In a sudden moment, our lives have changed and now we have to make lemonade out of lemons.
Make Lemonade Out of Lemons
I had a vision a few days ago of a lawn of fresh, pure white snow. On top of its beautiful pureness, on the snow, arranged in perfect rows like a grid, stood bright yellow lemons.
They were standing up straight in the snow, and I wondered at the interpretation of the vision.
I believe The LORD is saying that the lemons are things that look sour and He wants to make something sweet out of them. Basically, to make lemonade out of lemons.
The snow is going to melt and become water as the Spirit breathes with His breath of fire and blows with the wind of His Spirit. Fresh new ideas will spring up like flowers planted in spring.
Plant the lemons in the ground and see what ideas The LORD sprouts up!
Barbie Breathitt’s Dream Symbology Dictionary states this definition for lemonade:
“Ability to turn sour, possibly negative experiences into something sweet; hope; renewed mind; refreshing; entrepreneur; small business ideas will bring increase.”
God is Turning Something Sour Into Sweet!
Let God work in the situation you are in right now and ask Him how to turn it into something good and profitable.
He has a plan and a purpose for your life and can use even this situation and turn it into good.
Now is the time for the children of God to arise and show the world what we are made of!
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares The LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future,” Jeremiah 29:11.
“Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers,” 3 John 1:2.
