“Abba, Do You Have Electricity?”

Last night, just before midnight and in the middle of a storm, my daughter woke me up and said that she didn’t have any light in her bedroom or bathroom. Then she told me that she could hear the water running downstairs. I jumped out of my bed, and ran downstairs. I found my feet in a flood of water in the middle of my living room and kitchen. I tried to turn on the light switch so that I could see from where the water was coming. The light would not come on, so I couldn’t see anything. I went back to my bedroom and found my emergency flashlight. As I went back to the kitchen with my flashlight, I could see the problem. One of the pipes under our kitchen sink broke and flooded our kitchen and into our living room.

Immediately, I ran out of the house in the dark, in the pouring rain and turned off the main water source to our home. Secondly, I realized the flood had caused the electricity to not function in the house so we couldn’t turn on the power. After we were able to stop the water from flooding the house, the whole family got together in the early hours of the morning with our emergency lights and candles to clean up the mess. We had to use our squeegees to push the flood water out of our house.

So, my questions to you are: Are you in the middle of a storm? Are you prepared with extra power for time of emergency? Did you bring extra oil for your lamps to last through midnight hour?

I believe, in the midst of the storm, God is ready to move in a mighty way in our midst. Are we prepared with extra oil for our lamps for the midnight hour?

My family and I brought all of our emergency lights and candles so we can see in the dark to clean up the water from the house. We did this all while singing and praising the Lord. We could have gotten upset and started complaining, (like the Israelites did in the desert for forty years), but we chose to praise and thank Him in the midst of the storm and in the darkness.

We had this attack happen to us shortly after we had a very prayerful and fruitful meeting in Tel Aviv with many of our international representatives of our ministry, Dugit. The enemy is mad, but God is good and is victorious! God is preparing His bride, the One New Man; Jew and non-Jew as one bride for the return of the King of kings and the Lord of lords. Satan knows his time is up and he is mad, but God is in control. His perfect will WILL be done and His purposes and promises will be accomplished. Amen!
