Message for November 24, 2019 from Pastor Shirley

Psalm 137 give us the story of the people of Jerusalem captured and taken to Babylon.  Psalm 137:1-4 “By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down and wept, when we remembered Zion.  Upon the willows in the midst of it, we hung up our harps. How can we sing the Lord’s song in a foreign land?”  For the people of Jerusalem it was going to be a season of captivity. 

Harps represent type of ministry, destiny, purpose and the future they had.  The signs of living in captivity are the loss of your joy, the loss of your hope, the loss of your dreams.  It may seem as if everything has died around you and your going through the motions of life but not truly living. 

Seasons come and go in our life.  Some are short and then there are those that seem like they will never end.  Whatever season you find yourselves in don’t hang your harp on the willow tree. This too shall pass.

 God is the God of “suddenly”.  We all have heard the stories of the suddenlies of God-how in a moment a miracle takes place.  But God had been working all along to make the perfect moment for the suddenly to happen.

Psalms 126 tells, “When the Lord brought back the captive ones of Zion”- the people were saying, “Look at what the Lord has done for His people.” All those years in captivity and suddenly they were on their way back to Jerusalem.

What you have been going through in this season has only prepared you for the suddenly.  When the fullness of preparation meets the fullness of time the atmosphere is made ready for the suddenly to manifest.
