Isaiah 7 (NASB)
1 Now it came about in the days of Ahaz, the son of Jotham, the son of Uzziah, king of Judah, that Rezin the king of Aram and Pekah the son of Remaliah, king of Israel, went up to Jerusalem to wage war against it, but could not conquer it. 2 When it was reported to the house of David, saying, “The Arameans have camped in Ephraim,” his heart and the hearts of his people shook as the trees of the forest shake with the wind.
Father knows what the enemy is doing. He even knows what they are planning. He also knows exactly how it is affecting me, (if I’m trusting in Him, restrained by fate, or resting in the power of my flesh).
3 Then the Lord said to Isaiah, “Go out now to meet Ahaz, you and your son Shear-jashub, at the end of the conduit of the upper pool, on the highway to the fuller’s field, 4 and say to him, ‘Take care and be calm, have no fear and do not be fainthearted because of these two stubs of smoldering firebrands, on account of the fierce anger of Rezin and Aram and the son of Remaliah.
Terry, My message to you is, make no rash decisions, stay calm, trust Me and be strengthened in Our Intimacy. Relate your situations and conditions to My sovereignty. I am in control! Your trust and confidence in Me is of greater importance than your understanding of what I am up to. Be a doer of My Word, what I speak to you about, not just a person who contemplates My Word.
