Let us call this p*ndemic exactly what it is– a PLAGUE.

During the likes of which, we have the tendency to freak out, spread panic and unrest, and sulk in helpless anxiety.

I mean, I could just be speaking for myself.

Not everything is peaches and cream, and The Children of EHEYEH are really about to be tested for purity. Poverty, joblessness, hunger, thirst, nakedness, want of all things. Our 400 years is almost up, though.

Still, in the midst of this I cry. I shed tears. I close everybody out. I find myself isolated and angry because of the lack of masculine leadership in close proximity. Weapons, food storage, water wells, general survival utensils. Sometimes that can be scary not to have. You feel like you have no security.

However, we entered the wilderness without ANYTHING and we still made it out. YAH brought us over. He took care of us. He covered us. He provided and protected us like a father for His Children. Like a Husband for His Bride. We were not left alone. We were promised something and He did not fail to deliver on that promise.

I will admit that these days in this modern wilderness, I am strikingly skeptical. However, this was the case with hundred of us in the wilderness during our exodus from Mitsrayim.

“Is this why you brought us into the desert?” They taunted Moshe (Moses), “To be thirsty and hungry and struck by the sun? We may as well go back to Mitsrayim! At least we would have provisions!”

And it makes me think, what’s important to me? Do I express similar sentiments? We experienced chattel slavery in the USA, and now we are in a transitional wilderness about to watch these wicked kingdoms fall to their demise right before our eyes. But am I patient? Do I trust Him?

Would I rather go back to sleep? Would I rather crawl into the faux safety of my captors’ resources? Do I believe in YAH’s Word enough to keep pressing forward in the heat of this blazing trial?

When I talk to other sisters in this walk who are scared and feeling wide open because they don’t have men around to protect them during this, I tell them the same things:

“You can cross the seven seas, go underground in a bunker, or fly to Mars. But you cannot escape YAH’s will. And even if you are homeless sleeping on the sidewalk in the middle of His Doom, He WILL protect you if it’s His will.”

And, you know… Those words are for me! I need to hear that. I don’t have a bunker, a boat, or a rocket ship. But I have faith in The Most Merciful Supreme Echad, and there is nothing I cannot do.

I’ve seen it with my own eyes. My life was on life support before He showed me His Shekinah (Glory).

We as His Children have been around to see the plagues of Egypt, the Black (or really White) Plague, large STD outbreaks, Swine Flu, food insecurity, slavery, lynching, and everything under the sun which has passed up until this day.

Yet here we stand. We cannot be eradicated, wiped out, stopped, bred out, or buried.

YAH is merciful toward us for no other reason than His Mercies, and that will not change.

Get your peace back during this plague. Let that be your main prayer for supplication. Request His Shalom. The type of Shalom that is unbreakable, unshakable, insurmountable, impenetrable, and unfathomable. The type of peace that blows your mind. The only peace that is eternal.

When I started praying for peace, I got it. But after waking up from a terrible nightmare one night, I heard Yah say:

“If you want a double portion of My Peace, you must read a double portion of My Word.”

I had some repenting, reading, and focusing to do. I still do, every single day. So when you go to The Altar to request help during this trying time, do not neglect the duties He gives you in exchange.

Don’t forget that alongside our time in the wilderness, He promised to provide for us, but gave us clear instructions on how to respect, honor, and protect what He provided.

This time is no different.

And if (….when) you so happen to make a mistake, don’t worry. Don’t fret. Don’t give up.

Just turn away from it, don’t justify it, and walk in His Way instead.

No matter what you’ve done in this lifetime, you are still worthy of rest and quietude. Safety, a sense of security, stillness. Salvation. The quality of this world and all therein does not take away what is promised to you.

A Word to dwell on…

“Neither say in thy heart, These nations are greater and stronger than I am: how shall I be able to drive them out?

Be not afraid of them; remember the work of power which the Lord thy God wrought upon Pharoh and all the Mizraee;

the great miracles which thou didst see with thine eyes, the signs and wonders, the strength of the mighty hand, and the victory of the uplifted arm, when the Lord your God led you out free: so will the Lord your God do unto all the peoples before whom thou art afraid.

Moreover, the Lord your God will send the plague of biting hornets among you, until they who have remained shall perish and disappear before you.

Therefore be not down-broken before them, for the Shekinah of the Lord your God is among you, the Great and Fearful God.”

– Deuteronomy 7:17-21
