The watchman replies, "Morning is coming, but also the night. If you would ask, then ask; and come back yet again."
- Isaiah 21:12
God is an ever present Watchman.
Diligently walking the walls identifying enemies and ready with armor, a shield and arrows of righteousness.
Throughout scripture we read time and time again how God will go before us to fight against our enemies, He will go behind us to be our rear guard, He is an ever present help during times of trouble, and He will deliver and save.
However, our pride often prevents us from asking or accepting the gracious offer of protection and fortitude.
The beauty is: God wins. I mean, literally always, God wins.
If you build up your own castle you will have weak walls made of pride, envy, worry; all man made constructs.
You have to awaken each morning and take down those bricks one by one, and start to build a fortress for the Kingdom, welcoming all and guarding your heart.
As you build this beautiful new Kingdom, guess who will be there ever present, walking the walls, standing firm for you, watching, protecting, loving...
Today: He’s ready, are you asking?
