Still Small Voice – February 10th, 2023

“When I am afraid, I will put my trust in You. I praise God for what He has promised. I trust in God, so why should I be afraid? What can mere mortals do to me? You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book. My enemies will retreat when I call to You for help. This I know: God is on my side! I praise God for what He has promised.”

Ps 56

The words of Jesus help so much in these days. He saw it all, and has promised to make a way for all of us to live and move and have our being. It has been a week of heartache.  What other response can there be than prayer, and digging deeper to stand steady? Amir, below, brings you an up date from Israel on the Turkey and Syrian earthquake.  Kindly listen and pray with understanding.  

History repeating itself: Watch if you love history and have the fortitude:

Somehow, ghosts of the Holocaust keep reemerging into our lives. I don’t mean the tragic, horrific loss of family, the cruel and highly organised death camps, I mean the proof that giants of industry, predominantly but not exclusively, American giants of industry and society who were complicit in the Nazi killing machine. This video tells the story of the Fords, Rockefeller, Bush, indeed far too many who supported Hitler’s aims. The funding of Nazi Germany by American Billionaires.

The Stock and Strength of Scotland given to the world:

Be encouraged, you may want to come back to this. Learn how John Knox changed Scots history among other facts. Neil Oliver is a Scottish television presenter, historian, and author — is one of the courageous people willing to let his “no” mean “no.” At the height of his impressive career as a TV presenter, he realized the people promising the solutions to our problems are the same people responsible for them. But instead of bending the knee to the status quo, he became a modern “Braveheart” hero and defiantly said, “No,” to the tyranny of BLM, woke politics, and COVID lockdowns: “We’re not extreme, THEY’RE extreme.” Glenn Beck talks to Neil about the difficulties he has experienced ever since he began standing up for what’s right and details how you can stand up as well. They also dive into Neil’s fiery reactions to BLM, the rewriting of history, and the odd phenomenon of “excess deaths.” On any and all of it, Neil’s stance could not be any clearer: “I just believe in freedom.” 

“For the Spirit God does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.” 

2 Timothy 1:7

“He who has an ear let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.  He who overcomes will not be hurt at all by the second death.”

Revelation. 2:11

This is our glorious hope. Sending up prayers for the suffering, and courage and strength for the living.

Love from Meridel Rawlings.
