We are in troubling times. Probably the worst of times ever. We are living in the most confusing, perilous, angry, bitter, political times times today, and arguably the worst our country has ever encountered. There is such a high commodity for crafting the horrendous plays on words to cover-up what world leaders and thinkers are intently hiding behind those words.
But be careful when the words of the political pundits and new age commentaries tickle your ears. As other concerned pastors have echoed, do not let politics shape your world view. Do not let your guard down and be part of the vast majority of those who fall prey to the unGodly deceit. Biblical truth is God's truth. It is His world view which should govern our belief.
We must be careful of whom we listen to, and how much. We must be careful to not let the Word of God, the Holy Bible be overlaid with silence.
How then do we stand firm and not sway when the winds of the evil tides blow? Read the Word! It will fuel your faith; the very faith we have in Jesus the Christ, the Son of the living God. God knew from the beginning of time what would, and will, befall the Christian, let alone the world. Nothing will change Him nor His plans. There is coming a day of reckoning.
Find yourself on the right side of that equation and place your faith and trust in Jesus Christ. Believe God raised Jesus from the dead and you will be saved. Free then to closely follow Jesus with every step.
Here is what you can do. Ready? Go to Isaiah 41:10, "Do not fear; for I am with you: do not be dismayed; for I am your God: I will strengthen you; yes, I will help you; yes, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand."
Read it over again. Pray it. Share it. Use your smart phone and text it to your contacts. Point to Christ. It will strengthen your faith.
Here's to: Following Jesus, reaching for the prize!
