In eternal matters, salvation, and life and death man is fully impotent to assist us. To put our hope or trust in governing authorities is to place our faith in broken vessels. To do this is double-minded. But, God; God is faithful. He is not only able to help us, but He is also willing. He is faithful to His Word, and unchangeable in His promises. We must put our faith, hope, and trust in Him. Even when it seems that there is no help left on earth we must have a vibrant and robust hope that God is our help.
At times I think that ‘I’ am holding ‘my’ own life together in ‘my’ power. And I thought deeply today after all of this. I considered is my life not like Jonah’s gourd? What did I contribute to it to bring it into existence?
Think back on when God saved you and see that His grace, mercy, and lovingkindness have been poured out bountifully in an uninterrupted stream. Will He not continue to give you this Living Water?
Let us pray to face each day without fear, that our hearts will hold fast to the confidence of our hope in Christ. That our hearts will have the certain assurance that they are upheld by God who holds all things together. Let us pray that we may find sin more fearful than illness, calamity or death, and seek to destroy the sin with in us until the Lord takes us home.
Wherever there is faith in God, there is a holy godly fear. He is our protector and defender. Let us praise Him and honor Him with our trust and faith. Let us live in holiness and godliness that is set apart from the world. Let us think on the heavenly things and not our present troubles, for our God knows them all. Let us proclaim, “Hallelujah! For the Lord our God, the Almighty, reins.”
What is happening today is nothing in comparison to what any sinner deserves. This may very well be judgement on us for living in a blood soaked land amongst an evil people. If it is judgement it is rightly deserved. However no trial or difficulty that we may experience on earth would ever satisfy the payment that sin requires. Sin requires perfect obedience, a perfect sinless sacrifice as payment. That is only found in Jesus Christ.
Why, even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not; you are of more value than many sparrows -Luke 12:27 Brothers and Sisters, how are you doing? Are you living in peace in the Lord in these uncertain times? Are you fearful? Are you content in your circumstances? Is your trust in the Lord? I ask you these …
Over the weekend John MacArthur was asked to comment one word in response to the words “Beth Moore”. And he responded with two words. “Go home”. And by the response of some evangelicals you will understand that the visible Church and the true church are everyday becoming more and more two distinct entities. Why is a person that has preached …
We live in a culture that is filled with fakery at every turn. You have men pretending to be women, and women pretending to be men. We even have folks pretending they are animals, and the world celebrates and cheers these lies. And if anyone dare tell these folks the truth, they are demonized as “judgmental and hateful” And as …
We are told as Christians to “come out from their midst and be separate” we are to be a “peculiar people zealous for good works”. Now, to start with that gives us a stepping off place, right? So, to “come out from their midst” it means we are not to join with the wicked and the profane. Well we know what that is, don’t we? Then we have “peculiar people zealous for good works”. So, Jesus would set apart and purify for Himself a people, which for His sake should devote itself to God, in contrast to the rest of humanity sunk in selfish sins. Selfish Sins.
