Just WHO can we trust?

“Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD. And whose hope is the LORD. For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters, which spreads out its roots by the river, and will not fear when heat comes; but its leaf will be green, and will not be anxious in the year of drought, nor will cease from yielding fruit.”~Jeremiah 17:7-8

If there was ever a time for us to trust in the LORD it is surely now. Our world, globally has become an unstable mess of deception and tyranny. Through schemes and some very dark agendas, we are seeing much of what we once counted on disappear. Governments have become so corrupt in many cases, that they don’t even try to hide their lies and agendas anymore. They have become emboldened, while using a health crisis as a reason to strip citizens of their rights and freedoms.

We are seeing our economy collapse due to overspending and corruption. We are being warned of current and upcoming shortages in food, gas, electricity etc. all done by orchestrated design. To sum it up, people no longer trust or rely on their governments to help them out of the world’s current mess.

We are currently living in the beginning of the perilous times the Bible warned us of. So that said, while we wait on the appearance of our beautiful King Jesus, should we wring our hands in fear and stress?

NO!

Our trust and hope is not in man, our hope is in the LORD! The same LORD that took care of Daniel during the days of his captivity by Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon. The same LORD that took care of Joseph after being sold into slavery by his jealous brothers. The same LORD that provided a way out for Esther and the Jewish people by preventing them from being annihilated.

These are but three real people that lived in perilous times and GOD made a way for each of them. He will make a way for us too. It is time for us to stay close to His side, pray without ceasing and go about doing His business until our precious Savior comes to take us home. There is little this world has to offer us in comparison to the beautiful mansion Jesus has prepared for us in Heaven!

Stay close to Him. Seek Him daily. Pray continually. Remember our time here is very short in comparison to eternity with Jesus Christ! Be the “blessed” man or woman that hopes and trusts in the LORD. Don’t be anxious or fearful. He never takes His eyes off of you! As you lean into Christ, ask Him to help you be fruitful and yield a harvest of souls for His Kingdom while we wait on his glorious appearance!

Blessings!

What more do we need?

I was reading Psalm 37:1-9 this morning and what an amazing word it is!  Though David penned it centuries before us, every word can be applied to our lives today. As followers of Christ, it is every bit as true to us today as it was to David during his lifetime. God has NOT changed. He never will. That is a truth we can take to the grave.

Spend a few minutes today meditating on each verse. Then apply each one to your present situation. These are powerful words of truth and hope. If there was ever a time in history that we needed large dosages of both it is now….

Psalm 37:1-9 NIV 

Do not fret because of those who are evil
    or be envious of those who do wrong;
for like the grass they will soon wither,
    like green plants they will soon die away.

Trust in the Lord and do good;
    dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.
Take delight in the Lord,
    and He will give you the desires of your heart.

Commit your way to the Lord;
    trust in Him and He will do this:
He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn,
    your vindication like the noonday sun.

Be still before the Lord
    and wait patiently for Him;
do not fret when people succeed in their ways,
    when they carry out their wicked schemes.

Refrain from anger and turn from wrath;
    do not fret—it leads only to evil.
For those who are evil will be destroyed,
   but those who hope in the Lord will inherit the land.

To sum up DON’T FRET OR ENVY OTHERS, TRUST IN GOD AND DO WELL. DELIGHT IN GOD AND HE WILL GIVE YOU THE DESIRES OF YOUR HEART. COMMIT YOUR WAYS TO HIM. BE STILL AND WAIT ON HIM. REFRAIN FROM ANGER AND WRATH AND AGAIN DO NOT FRET AS IT LEADS ONLY TO EVIL!!

Looking around us can at times be overwhelming. The view isn’t always pleasant but God is still on the throne and in control. Christ is still making intercession for His church and will continue to do so until the day He takes us home.  We will  inherit the land!  Take Him at His word and put your hope in the One who never fails or disappoints.
