Good morning, Reader! It is so evident that we are in the end times, isn’t it? It seems something new comes into our news feed on a daily basis. So what is one to do? What do you do? Do you bury our head in your pillow and stay in bed? I see that we have two choices to make at that point:
- Fret over it and get eaten up inside with worry over what’s going to happen next. What will your worrying accomplish? It is said that 99% of what we worry about never comes to past. Jesus said the same thing in Matthew 6:25-34!
- Or, we can call on the only One who can remove our fears and let us rest in His care! (Matthew 11:28-30)
Friend, today’s verse shows how sinful we all are. Even if you think you’re not a sinner, I’m sure you have told at least one lie. Well, Reader, that makes you a sinner. We ALL are sinners because we were born that way. Ever since Adam and Eve sinned and were evicted from the Garden of Eden, their children were born sinners. It is called the “sin nature.” However, this verse speaks volumes to me because it reminds me of just who God is! The same God who destroyed Sodom and Gomorrha, who parted the Red Sea, and who created everything in the universe, is the same God who is present in our lives if we are born-again! If you are not saved, you can have this same assurance by setting the matter straight with God.
I know you’re scared; I know you’re apprehensive over what is to come. But really, dear Reader, is anything too hard for God? If you’re a believer, your answer is No! If you’re not yet a believer, these verses will give you the answer:
And if you’re a believer, the way you respond during hardships is what the world is going to see! Do you share that you’re worried about what’s going on in the world with your lost family? Or do they see someone who is calm and trusting in the Lord to work things out?
You are a living testimony as to the peace that God provides in the midst of a tumultuous world!!
The Word of God is filled with guidance for the believer and there is so much wisdom between the pages, from Genesis 1:1 to Revelation 22:21; it is more than we will ever comprehend. However, there is only wisdom to be had for those who want it. It is this wisdom that will help us to stand out in a world that has gone mad. We will be the only sanity people will see as the days get darker with sin.
We are truly in the end times because we see all the signs that Jesus spoke of in His Word. Just read Matthew 24:4-12. Jesus wanted His followers to have peace in the midst of confusion and chaos. Remember the verses I quoted above in Matthew 11:28-30? He promised us peace! Everything that happens in our lives and around the world are allowed by the Lord. He knows the outcome and will provide exactly what you need, when you need it. The Lord won’t let you down!
Our job is to be a light to this lost and dying world. We need to give them hope as we have hope! Friend, don’t be willfully ignorant of the end times. (2 Peter 3:5) If you are not born-again, confess your sins and repent of them. The time is coming when it will be too late for you to repent. You will remember each opportunity you were given by God to be saved; you will remember each time you laughed it off and ignored it. Please Reader, repent and accept Christ into your life. (Act 16:31, Rom 10:9) I want to be sure that anyone who reads the posts on this blog can know beyond a shadow of a doubt that they are going to Heaven. Have you received Christ as your Saviour? If no, your sins are not covered by His sacrificial offering of Himself. You have not been redeemed by His blood. It is no coincidence that God has placed you here for such a time as this so that you may be saved if you are not already.
