Master Builder

Lord, what can be done, for Texas? What can You do?


There is much work to be done on the ground. Many, many earthly hands are needed. And I Myself will be at work–inspiring individual actions and decisions for the best possible outcome, the highest possible good, in the aftermath. I told you before, Miracles are happening you will never hear about. Others will make the national news and give hope to many.


Lord, it is going to keep on happening, isn’t it? Is this what You said, about the end–wars and rumors of wars and famine, all of it?

I did not say that in the context of My Will being all of that, but as an alert ahead of time. Actions have consequences. Your job in all of this is to, moment by moment, decide whether you will stand on the side of hope or the side of despair. Will you speak for good or for giving up? Will you inspire others to believe in Me as Comforter and Restorer, or as Destroyer? Can you believe I Am able to bring Light out of darkness, and good out of evil, and calm out of the storm?

Let mercy and kindness flow to Texas now, from around the globe. Let Texas receive the outpouring of compassionate care from all over the world. Let the politicians wrangle–but watch Me inspire a different kind of flood, a flood of support, of help, of comfort, of resources, the likes of which the world has not seen before. I tell you this: the greater the need, the greater the help. The greater the destruction, the greater the rebuilding. And at the Last, when humans manage to find a way to destroy it, My response will be to create a New Earth and say, here you go. For I Am Creator, Redeemer, Restorer, ReMaker. I Make All Things New. That is why My Hands were Carpenter hands. I am a Master Builder, not a Master Destroyer.


Notes of Hope in times of turmoil

Lord, where are You when natural disasters happen?

The same place I Am when personal disasters happen, like the death of someone you love. I am right there in the midst.

Lord, but I feel like Martha and Mary: “If You had only been here, this would not have happened.” I can’t reconcile You saying You are present with the destruction a storm like Harvey brings, with the widespread damage. If You don’t cause it, can’t You intervene to prevent it, or to minimize the damage?

What happened in the Martha and Mary story?

Lazarus died. They thought You abandoned them. You did, actually—I mean, the story says You deliberately waited. You didn’t go.

And then what happened?

Well, then You came, and they were so upset, all that grief.

And then?

Well, then, the Miracle. You raised Lazarus. You had them roll away the stone and You called him back to life.

I could have healed Lazarus, as I had healed so many others, but that would have limited Me in their eyes. Instead, I showed Myself as Lord of Life, Lord over Death, so they would never have to fear death again, not for Lazarus, not for themselves. I gave them greater joy and greater freedom.

Yes, okay, but how does this relate to, say, this hurricane? Or to people who do die?

I AM the Lord of Life. I can—I do—bring Life out of Death. After a devastating loss, the Resurrection that has to happen is in you. In the one who remains behind.

I Am still Lord over Texas. I am working miracles you will never hear of, greater miracles even than preventing landfall.  I am reuniting families and communities. I did not cause this destruction but I am willing to use it, to turn it to bring about good, much good that would otherwise never have been. I make all things New. Learn the Butterfly lesson. Renewal—freshness—newness, that is Who I Am, that is what I do. Let Me do this in you as well—body and spirit and mind.
