The Enemy uses the fog of confusion to effectively disrupt the vision and purpose of God. It is important to understand no matter where we are relative to the fog–we will live by our faith. That’s right; it is never by sight anyway. And when sight is clouded, my hearing becomes of utmost importance. How is your hearing? If we know faith comes by hearing the word of God, then God’s word and His voice is the key to our uncertainty. Your life as a Christian will be defined, refined and ultimately proven by this word that you hear. You simply will not have faith or even proper obedience unless you hear the word correctly. Timing is everything and perceived need essential if I am going to find the divine directives the word offers me. Isaiah 55:1; offers us an invitation by saying, “Is anyone thirsty? Come and drink–even if you have no money! Come,…” The word brings an invitation into my life–a portal through which God’s thinking can flow into my darkness giving proper direction from my clouded judgement. And where my foggy thoughts have left me stranded, this word would be the impetus to move me forward without fear. This word promises a satisfaction that bread alone cannot. Jesus said, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.” It has the power to strengthen your bones to make you stand up, fill out and fast forward you from dark to light in one single instance. This word comes to impart the faith like Abraham as God Himself speaks to your own heart, calling you from the fog you’re living in. It could be a fog of confusion, of doubt, of fear, of failure, of lies and deception so thick that this word could be wasted on you. But make no mistake, the fog will break down communication of this word unless you recognize the invitation this word is making to you. You need to see the absolute importance of this word–it’s a powerful thing! You and I often spend money for things that leave us short and the fog remains, but God desires that we discover a line of communication that leaves us well informed and confident–ready to display His thoughts and a testimony that proves His word will affect my quality of life and living. I have seen the fog of confusion, and I tell you this word can powerfully remove its effects to give you the will and way to move ahead toward the promise no matter what you see. His invitation to you stands and His word will remove your fog. I believe He is saying, ‘timing is everything, so come now, everyone who thirsts, come now…’

I am walking in a fog right now. I fully trust God and know there is sun on the other side of the fog but…I just lost my little dog of ten years. More to me than a pet, Precious was like a child to me. I know people may think that is crazy but the truth can’t be denied and in prayer I know God understands my deep pain. When life doesn’t seem fair, the Word can give answers man cannot give and when you commune with God moment by moment you learn to hear his voice alone, even amongst all the noise.
Praise God! He lifts the fog!
