The Lord will bring on you, on your people, and on your father’s house such days as have never come since the day that Ephraim separated from Judah, the king of Assyria. Isaiah 7:17
The people of God received this warning to prepare them for the future. It was to tell them that the difficulties they knew would be nothing compared to what was yet to come.
As I have watched the news over the last year, there has been much destruction. There have been horrendous fires, floods, earthquakes, hurricanes and “people issues”. Though these things have always been around to some degree, it seems they are growing in strength and in number. They are affecting more and more lives all over the world.
Do you see these things as preparing us for what is yet to come? Like weight lifting, you start off with a light weight and once you can handle that you put on more weight, and then more and more and even more.
Yes, there have been many tribulations, and though, to us, they seem great, have you ever thought that maybe they are there to prepare us for what is yet to come – the likes which we have never seen.
Are you prepared?
