Do you trust the Lord or trust the news? I know that is a big question for such an early morning. When we trust a lie we manifest the fruit of the lie. When we trust the One who cannot lie, will not lie, does not lie, we manifest the fruit of truth and trust. Manifestation can be what we say, how we think, what we feel, what we do, what we post, what we repeat, how we respond. Lies will never manifest life, truth will always manifest in life, joy and peace. So let me ask you again, do you trust the Lord and His word or do you trust what you are seeing and hearing on the news?
I have been observing believers, prophets, the church echoing the news and being dragged along by their stories for years now. It is surprising to me how many people can repeat something they heard on the news, but have no idea what God is saying about the days we are living in. It is not surprising though, because it was the same way in the days of Jesus. It is no wonder He and John preached, repent, change the way you think, for the kingdom of God is at hand, it is here, not it is coming, it is here right now! I hear the same message echoing throughout heaven declaring it over the earth, church, repent for the kingdom of God is at hand, it is here right now, repent, change the way you think.
Trusting the Lord means we believe what He says, no matter what the news says, circumstances say, other people say, the crowd says. Trusting the Lord is hard, because most people who call themselves believers don’t trust the Lord, but we cannot let others lack of trust hinder our ability to trust. Psalm 37:34 tells us what the truth is for right now “Wait on the LORD, And keep His way, And He shall exalt you to inherit the land; When the wicked are cut off, you shall see it.” Those who have been waiting on the Lord not for minutes, but for years are going to inherit the earth and the wicked are being cut off right now as we stand here today. If you trust the Lord you can see it, if you trust the news you can’t see it for they only show you what they want you to see. I pray you would read Psalm 37 today, it is filled with the truth about what is happening right now. The wicked are being cut off and the waiters are inheriting the earth. It is really good news if you can hear it.
