This post is a raw one that talks of Jehovah Mephalti
I want to come on here and segue from my regular posts.
I love to come here occasionally and drop a raw post—one from the depths of my spirit.❤️
I’m listening to Amanda Cook’s “There’s Nothing” song as I write this. A profound portion of that song says, “Nothing can override your word.” I felt that deeply.
Why? Because God’s promises aren’t vain repetitions, they aren’t fable or feel-good stanzas in the Bible. God’s promises are divine absolute truth. To the point that God says He watches His word to ensure it performs!
At the crux of promise
As I write this, I’m honestly in tears. I’m at the crux of the promise being fulfilled, and it’s the most exciting yet painful season. I can feel the breakthrough, but I feel the pressure.
So what does this look like? You feel exactly like a mom who is pushing a baby. You feel the baby coming, but the pressure and pain are intense. You can feel the ring of fire and are screaming, but you sense the urgency to birth that baby. IT’S NOW OR NEVER.
Message in a bottle
I went back to my journal and was drawn to May 2021. It’s clearly a note to myself. I don’t recall the background of why I wrote it, but it states, “Sometimes your most difficult seasons can be your “go season ” or “yes season.”
When I read that, I felt like it was a message in a bottle that washed up onto the shore. I really needed that message today.
Do I believe the promise that the Lord has over my life? YES! But can I be honest? What always gets me is the part, “Though it tarry, wait for it.”
Waiting isn’t easy because that’s when the enemy comes to cast doubt over the promise. “It’s taking too long,” “You’ve missed it,” “You took the wrong turn,” “You’re not doing enough.”
And that’s when I dig my heels and draw a line in the sand. I yell, “I know my God. He’s done it before; He will do it again! Cross if you dare!”
Grace and grit
The strange thing is that though I’ve been in the most intense spiritual warfare, I’ve had the most supernatural grace and grit over my life.
God’s presence has been strong these past few years with intense encounters and confirmations.
What I can say is, as long as I’m on this side of eternity- God’s not done. For that alone, I will keep writing. I’ll keep shouting on the rooftops that Jesus is Lord. As long as breath is in my lungs and blood flows through my veins, I’ll keep telling everyone of Jesus, The One who saved my life.
And that’s it, folks, Jehovah Mephalti (Jehovah My Deliverer)
Sending hugs to everyone in this season.
Remember that Jehovah Mephalti (Jehovah My Deliverer) is standing by!
P.S. I often close my eyes and try to picture the Israelites seemingly at a dead end. Then the Lord does the unexpected. He split the Red Sea.
Then guess what? He did it again when they crossed the Jordan.
Our God is a God of the unexpected but also a God of “I’ll do it again.”
Do you trust Him to deliver you? ❤️
The Lord (Jehovah) is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer (Mephalti); my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
Here are two songs that I’m dedicating to you!
