God: has a time to act on our behalf…
Joel 2:25 (KJV) “And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.”
When you see a butterfly in it’s latter stage it is quite pretty; it can cause your feelings of being low to disappear as you focus on it’s beauty. Yet in its early stage as a caterpiller, it can be damaging to the leaves and foliage it attaches itself to.
God uses this analogy to describe the level of attack which a caterpillar can do to our resources; along with it’s family members, the cankerworm and palmerworm, they can literally cause an attack that will leave debilitated for years.
The attacks come in the spiritual realm and leaves us searching for a solution, but the enemy is hidden.
But thanks be to God who sees and allow at times the attacks; but glory to God in the highest who decides when it is time to restore that which has been taken from us.
