Shut In With The Lord

We were indoors for practically the entire month of May. We didn’t lose a month but we spent it differently than we ever expected to. We didn’t plan it and we didn’t ask for it but it happened anyway.

I could be full of frustration because of missing out on the weather that was so good that month or I can concentrate on the inside thing God blessed me with while I was waiting for release.

Oh beloved. Maybe you feel cooped up in your circumstances. It may feel like an entire month or a whole season is passing you by. You wonder how you ever got here- being on the inside looking out at life. God wants you to know this morning that every season has its blessings. He wastes nothing. He doesn’t let time just slip by. He uses it all- even he hardest times- to teach us more about Himself. While I would not have asked to have things happen the way they have I am thankful for the wonderful things I’ve learned during our shut in days. You too will experience God’s truth and see challenges as stepping stones to greater insight. You just have to focus on the Lord instead of the troubles. 

God loves you and He’s for you even now. And you’re not done learning yet. But now is time to take whatever season you are in and let God give you His perspective and His faith rest. You are His prized possession and He has your best in mind as He teaches and encourages you to live in the Light of His lessons for life.

Psalm 32:8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you should go; I will counsel you with My eye upon you.

Psalm 25:4-5 Make me know Your ways, O LORD; Teach me Your paths. Lead me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; For You I wait all the day.

Psalm 16:7 I will bless the LORD who has counseled me; Indeed, my mind instructs me in the night.

Nahum 1:7 The LORD is good, A stronghold in the day of trouble, And He knows those who take refuge in Him.


About rebekahbeene

In a Women’s meeting in 1983, I went up for prayer and to see if God had “anything for me”. The woman of God who was praying for people spoke over my life. She said these words: “You will write books. You can go to the bank on it. Rivers of living water will flow from your belly…”
