Joel 3

Joel ends his book with a prophecy of how God will come to the aid of His people Israel.  The enemies are in for a very tough time, but God’s blessing will be enormous for those whom He has chosen.  Based on God’s response, Joel says: “Then you’ll know for sure that I’m your God”.  We can see it if we only look guys.  He is our God.  He is our fortress.  He is our strength.  He is our source of blessing.  We can look forward to promises like this if we will only walk with our Lord – what a vision Joel paints for us: “What a day! Wine streaming off the mountains, Milk rivering out of the hills, water flowing everywhere”.  Can you see it.  God’s hand of blessing is just waiting to be turned on for us.  He wants to  bless us indeed.  He will if we only get lined up with His plan and direction.  For those who are not, they will be “reduced to weeds…turned into barren badlands”.  Things are not good for those who are not in God’s plan.  God also  promises forgiveness along with His blessing if we get it right with Him.  We have so much to look forward to in our relationship with the Father.  Lord help us walk in your ways and follow your leading – trust and obey!
