For a mere moment I have forsaken you.

Posted by appolus on August 27, 2022

Isa 54:7  For a mere moment have I forsaken you; but with great mercies will I gather you. 

There are times and seasons when it seems that we are forsaken. In our personal lives and our corporate lives of gathering, we seem forsaken and lost. In the midst of trials that seem like they will never come to an end. In the midst of a wicked world that only seems to grow more wicked every day, the sense of being alone may creep in. Lest we think we are above these thoughts consider the cry’s of Jesus from the cross. The remnant people of the Lord, scattered  everywhere, often struggle mightily with these thoughts, you might be struggling with them even as you read this. God has His people and His eye is upon them. If His eye is upon the sparrow, how much more so is it on you dear saint? In the state where we are scattered and separated from Babylon, we must remember this “with great mercies I will gather you.”

We are the Bride of Christ and our Maker is our husband. We are the redeemed of the Lord and He has called us. In the midst of darkness and wrath He has hid His face for a moment. Did not He turn His face away from the Lord Jesus? Yet we know this, we are the recipients of everlasting kindness and His mercy is new every morning. The mountains may depart and the hills be removed but His kindness shall not depart from us, even if for a moment it is hidden. He recognizes our afflictions saints. He sees our troubles. O you afflicted one, tossed with tempest and not comforted (Isa 54:11) The Disciples were so tossed with tempest as they crossed over this treacherous body of water. Yet, they see a figure walking towards them on the water. In the midst of their calamity here comes Jesus. He bids Peter to arise and come join Him in the very heart of the storm. With eyes on Jesus, Peter walks upon the water and above the storm.

The remnant saints of the Lord Jesus, the Body of Christ, the Church may seem to be on the ropes as the gross darkness rises around the world and the gates of hell seemed to be loosed all about us. Troubles without, fears within, yet God. In righteousness you shall be established. God is creating a work that shall astonish the principalities and powers. This temple, this Body, this Church may not look like much and may seem to be on the ropes, but it is far from that, we are being molded in the eye of the storm. We shall arise on the wings of our Bridegroom. Our gates shall be of crystal and our walls of precious stones. And the pinnacles of our towers shall be made of rubies. The pearl of great price is the foundation of His Holy Temple, we are that temple of the Lord, built without human hands and no weapon formed against us shall prosper. Every tongue which rises against us in judgement shall find itself judged by the saints in that day. This is the heritage of the servants of God and their righteousness is Christ Himself.

    Oh wow, brother Frank, this one left me weeping. Really blessed my soul reading this. I have been praying and crying out to the Lord about this exact thing, asking him, “Why have you hidden your face from me?”

    So God bless you, brother Frank. And God bless all the saints who are in the furnace of affliction or who are walking through the valley of the shadow of death. Hold onto Jesus with everything you’ve got. He hasn’t left you. He promised he never will and he don’t lie. He’s always with us. Keep fighting the good fight.

    Few nights ago I dreamed that a pack of wolves and a pack of coyotes came into my neighborhood. Two of the wolves tried to attack me when I went outside to take out the trash, but I did have my gun and managed to shoot the both of them and put them down, although there seemed to be a delay everytime I fired a round?? Lots of spiritual symbolism, and I’m not quite sure what that all means exactly, but it sure feels about right.

    I’m not trying to sound pitiful or pathetic, honestly, I’m just being honest and real about my struggles. I wished that there were more people in the church who were honest about theirs. Blessings.

      You do not sound pitiful or pathetic sister. Your honesty and transparency is a sure sign of your walk with Jesus in an intimate sense. I would say to any brother or sister, who is determined to walk the narrow path that they must expect seasons of silence. We are being taught to trust God. In the end we must be able to say that even if we never heard another whisper from that still small voice we shall still worship God who is and forever shall be worthy of Worship. Trust, faith, these are the issues of our spiritual lives. He will teach us and we will learn. God bless you Lisa, my dear sister in the Lord……bro Frank.
