Sometimes the Lord shows me things as a picture. And in my mind’s eye I saw a hornets nest. Can you picture a hornet’s nest? Now picture bigger. And bigger. The hornet’s nest seemed so big that it completely blocked my path.
I knew that either there a way around the nest without disturbing the hornets or they needed to be moved. I began reading about hornet’s and hornets nests. In removing hornets nest, the articles told me that patience is needed. It suggested working in the cool of the night and when you used spray to kill hornets — come prepared Bring two cans, and spray in a specific location.
I asked him to dismantle the enemy before me. I knew I had to come prepared. Read yesterday’s post.
If you feel that there is a hornets nest in your life I encourage you to come to the Lord and ask Him for His wisdom.
In searching scripture regarding hornets I found these verses:
In Joshua 24:11-13
1“‘Then you crossed the Jordan and came to Jericho. The citizens of Jericho fought against you, as did also the Amorites, Perizzites, Canaanites, Hittites, Girgashites, Hivites and Jebusites, but I gave them into your hands. 12 I sent the hornet ahead of you, which drove them out before you—also the two Amorite kings. You did not do it with your own sword and bow. 13 So I gave you a land on which you did not toil and cities you did not build; and you live in them and eat from vineyards and olive groves that you did not plant.’ It drove out the two Amorite kings — did your work for you. You didn’t have to do a thing not so much as raise a finger.
And in Deut 7 is says that God’s mighty arm defeated the enemy and he will do the same. He will unleash the Hornet on them. God is going to wipe out the enemy bit by bit. Interesting that in God’s wisdom he takes the enemy out slowly rather than all at once.
Deut 7:18-20 Remember the great contests to which you were eyewitnesses: the miracle-signs, the wonders, God’s mighty hand as he stretched out his arm and took you out of there. God, your God, is going to do the same thing to these people you’re now so afraid of. And to top it off, the Hornet. God will unleash the Hornet on them until every survivor-in-hiding is dead.
Deut 7:21-24 So don’t be intimidated by them.God, your God, is among you—God majestic, God awesome. God, your God, will get rid of these nations, bit by bit. You won’t be permitted to wipe them out all at once lest the wild animals take over and overwhelm you. But God, your God, will move them out of your way—he’ll throw them into a huge panic until there’s nothing left of them. He’ll turn their kings over to you and you’ll remove all trace of them under Heaven. Not one person will be able to stand up to you; you’ll put an end to them all. as vile and utterly
In patience I trust you God to drive out the enemy before me in the way that you plan. I ask you to fill me with your Holy Spirit. Fill me with your patience. Thank you that your reminded us that you brought us out of captivity and you have freedom planned for us. Thank you God that you did bring us out of captivity to take us to the promised. land.
