"The Father is with Me.
I’ve told you all this so that trusting Me, you will be unshakable and assured, deeply at peace.
In this godless world you will continue to experience difficulties.
But take heart! I’ve conquered the world.” (16:32-33)
ABBA. Omnipresent. He is always in control. Everlasting. Unconditional love.
The Headlines read:
2016 Election Day has arrived.
Our economy is taking a nosedive, health care is going to be the straw that breaks the camels back.
Gangs and drugs are overtaking our towns, cities. Guns will be taken, bank accounts will be depleted by outside sources.
The warnings go on and on - the world is "going to hell in a hand basket".
How easy it would be to get carried away in the "tsunami" of fear, doubt, worry, panic. But, when digging deeper into the articles running under the eye catching headlines, you find He is there.
Everywhere you look there are signs of the constant rumbling of the destruction of sin in this world. Amongst those signs is also the exciting gift of His Hope.
It depends on your focus if you see His Hope. It depends on your trust, if you accept His Hope.
His Word is God inspired and everything He is. It is alive, solid and shoots straight from the hip. There isn't a hidden agenda laying under the headlines. He doesn't hide behind worthless words. He promises, "there is nothing new under the sun". Our life here, is all about Spiritual Warfare.
His Word - His Word is The Truth.
"In this godless world, we will - not might - will, encounter difficulties".
It is our choice where to place our Trust.
Will it be in the lie of the "headlines" or the Words of His Truth, living life "being unshakable and assured, deeply at peace".
No matter the difficulties we will encounter while here on our journey towards Home.
