“He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the Lord hath spoken it. And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is the Lord; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.” – Isaiah 29:8-9
The 2020 events of the global pandemic had me searching online for help. (Actually, it had us all running for cover: masking, gelling, distancing and hoarding!) I found courage in the sermons of a Ladies ministry teacher and Pastor’s wife, Sister Claudette Walker. (Faith Apostolic Church of Troy, Michigan).
I loved her boldness! I loved her confidence in Christ. She was so revealing on the nature of God. I said within myself, “You are right, God would never leave us, nor forsake us.” I knew this! I saw a great ray of sunshine through YouTube video sermons.
Interesting, I had listened to them before, just a couple years earlier, but this time I was paying close attention to what God was doing and saying through her. I felt my courage rise in me to fight back against fear and depression – more than that, I recognized the source of evil. It was demonic and it was coming for us all!
This book was birthed through the 2020 COVID outbreak. I lovingly dedicate it to Sister Claudette Walker and to our LORD, Jesus Christ.
