PRAYING FOR FAMILY, FRIENDS, CHURCH AND NATION
Learn the skill of the faithful watchmen and women (Isa 62:6A; Ezk 33:7). #WatchmenOnTheWall https://bible.com/bible/114/isa.62.6.NKJV
MORNING WATCH NOTES:
God says, “O Jerusalem, I have posted watchmen on your walls; they will never keep silent.“ Barnes’ Notes indicate, “Watchmen were those who were appointed to be instructors of the people (Ezk 33:7)“ They were prophets, teachers and the like – especially the prophet.
These ministers among the people, then and now, hear, see and clearly and understand what the Lord says. They then give a clear expression of God’s word through praise, thanksgiving and words of encouragement or warning (according to the message). Such men and women of faith will always be watching, listening and crying out to God and to man.
Father, I am reminded of my Sentry Standing Orders given as the tag line on this blog:
Stand Faithfully, Watch Vigilantly, Pray Earnestly and Warn Clearly.
