REFUGE!

I can remember as a child how protected I felt when my Dad was with me.  I knew nothing could touch me.  When my brother, Pastor Ted grew up and up and up..and became a big strong football player, once again I felt so protected when he was around. Now God tells Moses to establish three cities of refuge where someone can flee who committed unintentional homicide.  These cities were intertribal and any one from any tribe could flee to the city closest to him.

A beautiful truth concerning this was that a relative who was called a "Kinsman redeemer" He was the one who stood up for the family and could protect the family rights.  The glory of Israel was that it's Kinsman Redeemer was God Himself.

Now we have been chosen by God, and we have incredible protection through the blood of Jesus and all the power of heaven on our side as we walk our journey through life.  It also says in verse 2o"  "When you go out to battle against your enemies, and see horses and chariots and people more numerous than you, do not be afraid of them.  Do not let your heart faint, do not be afraid, and do not tremble or be terrified because the Lord your God is He who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to save you!"

What an encouraging word straight from heaven!  It even talks about the fact that God will enlarge our territories.   We are learning in Heart to Heart Fresh Fire, how the Lord goes before us and removes the barriers in our path in order for us to accomplish what He has for us to do.

What a God we serve, and what protection we have as we walk through our lives serving him with all that is in us.  Thank you Father for your help in our time of need.  We have also been reminded in Fresh Fire, how the Holy Spirit monitors the whole earth 24 hours a day.  He even hears the thud of the small sparrow falling to the ground!  How much more does He watch over us as the third person of the trinity and sends divine help and protection to us before we can even call.

There is an incredible invisible realm with action taking place all the time on behalf of God's kids, but also those who are God's kids and just don't know it yet.  How many of you are Christians because God protected you until you finally found Him?  His grace and Mercy cannot even be believed it is great and overwhelming.  It even makes the angels wonder at the greatness of His love toward the people who haven't found Him yet.

Let's help more people find Him.  Blow the Trumpet!  We're off!

We can walk in victory!
