BIBLE VERSE FOR THE DAY
"And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever." I John 2:17
Hello everyone…I sure hope that your day has been going well! Right now, as I've been sitting here…thinking on what God would have me to share with you today, I've also been thinking back to something I heard yesterday …something that has truly allowed me to see how quickly we are approaching the return of Jesus Christ.
You know…many of us get up from day to day and wonder what will become of this world we live in, while others seem to be strategizing, as to how they can stand up and resolve all the evil that has grown in such a short time. As I sit here and see what others are attempting to do; God is taking my thoughts in a completely different direction. In other words, when I see plans fail and evil prevail, I'm reminded of a God who has a plan of His own…and in my heart, I know that it's His plan that will prevail in the end.
I will never forget…when as a child, I used to see this world as a place that would always be…a place where other generations would continue to take over from where other generations had left off; but now as an adult, I see these times as the final hours here on earth. In fact, lately, as I've been observing everything around me, I've come to see how evil is having its way more and more, while attempting to convince us that it will win out. Satan seems to take hold of the evil that he has produced…only to push it in our faces and place it into our thoughts…in such a way where we will come to not only believe what he wants us to believe; but to also convince us that there is no longer any hope.
Right now, we must remember that moments such as these can easily make us fall prey to fear…a fear that can easily convince us that these times in which we're living in will never be resolved. Yes…God may not be showing His power at this time; but I truly believe that just at the right time…His Son, Jesus Christ will step into the picture and crush these forces of evil.
I think the thing we need to do, as a means of encouragement right now; is to get caught up in what God is beginning to do, rather than what evil is attempting to do. I remember a time in my life, when moments such as these would have instilled fear within me; but now that I know God and am connected to Him…I no longer fear these times we're facing; because I know a time will come, when evil will no longer have its way.
Before going to bed last night, I began to talk with God and share all of my heart with Him. As I thought back to all that I had heard throughout the day, I began to pray for the lost, as I have never prayed for them before; because you see…we as Christians have hope, no matter what Satan may attempt to make us believe; but the one who has nothing to bring peace into their hearts right now, while facing these troubled times…is the one without Christ. Jesus is the anchor we need right now, as the troubled waters around us are being stirred up by evil.
Yesterday, as I listened to a video on YouTube…I sensed that the person that I was listening to wasn't a Christian; because their thoughts were going in a direction, where they were attempting to find the answers to the evil that is now attempting to take over this country…and even this world. As I listened more and more…this person's words were actually helping me to see where we are headed at this time, from a Christian standpoint. Here, this person was seeking hope in his own ways, while I was truly thanking God for the hope that I have already found in Him.
Now days…people are starting to panic, while others are thinking that they will always be able to protect themselves from this form of evil; but we must remember that the only way we are going to be able to escape all that is taking place in this world right now, is when we have Jesus in our lives; for He is the only One who has the greater power we need right now, to remove all of this evil from us.
I don't know about you; but today has been another great visit…and the more that God reveals to my heart…the more I feel safe and secure within His loving hands. If you don't know of this kind of peace and hope I speak of; then I would encourage you to click on one of our ministries web pages, titled… "Come to Jesus." Come and experience Jesus and the loving peace that He so longs to fill your heart with, as a means of sustaining you through these times.
Well…time for me to get back to work; but I sure have enjoyed our visit today! May you truly have a blessed day…and I will be here again tomorrow…looking forward to another great God inspired visit with you! God bless you so much!
It's Always & Only Because of Him…
