This might come as a shock to you, but the current cultural, economic and global climates are a little unsettling. In the last two months we’ve seen some really disturbing things in the US, Canada, Cuba, France, South Africa, Hatti and Afghanistan. It really is reason to start worrying right?
No. You should have peace at this time.
Take a moment and look at Matthew 24. Jesus paints a pretty bleak picture here. Wars, earthquakes, unrest, famine. So much going on. But I am positive that we should’nt start hand ringing yet.
The reason we can see society coming unglued and not fear, worry or stress is pretty simple. Jesus told us this would happen almost 2000 yeas ago. The fulfillment of prophecies in the Bible has been 100%. Since He was so spot on accurate about something so precise as this, we can take Him at His word for other things. This is my point today.
I’ll point out one example, our salvation. We can fully throw our trust on Christ for our salvation. He’s been 100% trustworthy and truthful about so much in the past, not one word has failed. Because He’s been so on point we can trust Him to keep that same winning record all the way until the end. So no matter how time wraps up, we can trust our Lord that He will bring us safely over the finish line. He deserves our full trust and faith.
Here’s another promise he made Matthew 11:28-30. The stress and pressure of the day does seem overwhelming at times. However, Christ told us that if we took His yoke upon us and learned His ways we’d actually be free. All we have to do is take off the world’s burden and put on Christ’. He’s trustworthy. He’s faithful. He hasn’t lied and will not.
Jesus Christ has a spotless track record. We can trust Him and commit to Him fully, knowing that just like He predicted the end of the age perfectly and how He’s promised to give us peace in the midst of it, He’ll also carry us on to glory one day soon.
How are you coping with the current situations around us? Hand ringing or Hand raising as you look to Christ to come quickly?
Things today do look like they’re falling apart, I agree. However, we have a choice focus on things falling apart or see them as falling into order of a wise master designer who had all this laid out and planned out from the beginning of time. The choice is up to us.
