GIVING YOU LIGHT...IN THE DARKNESS
I know it's dark out there. You may say, "I can't see any hope, I can't find any peace, I feel like God has abandoned us."
No, He has not, because He promises us as His children through faith and trust in Jesus as our Savior, " He will never leave us or forsake us" Deuteronomy 31;6-8 is just one of many promises that " I will never leave you nor forsake you.
It is found in multiple books of the Bible, both Old, and the New testament.
With this promise, we can be assured that He is always with us.
He tells us to " be strong and courageous, do not be afraid or terrified because of the chaos going on. For the Lord your God goes with you, He will never leave you nor forsake you" Deuteronomy 31: 6.
Are we afraid because we have let our faith weaken under pressure? Are we afraid because we know that it appears that the enemy is winning?
I know what that is like, I've been there many times with the " But God", why are you letting me go through this struggle? His answer is always, " my child, my grace will be sufficient".
And, I can tell you unequivocally that it always has been.
I will use the current day example of the war going on in Ukraine and the tyrant, Russia.
We don't understand why God is allowing the people of Ukraine to suffer so desperately, but God does. I see it as a prophecy that the Bible foretells of, and then, I see God in His mercy showing his great power in the outcome.
I also see, how God in his testing is showing the world, through many praying that He will
" show-up with His miracle. " I can just see God saying, to those faithful fighters in Ukraine, I am fighting your battle, keep your faith in me."
I heard a TV program where Franklin Graham with Samartarin's Purse, was being interviewed and the question was asked," aren't you afraid to take all your volunteers and supporters into Ukraine?" You all may be killed. Franklin's reply was, " we are going not in the name of America, in the name of Samartrain's Purse, BUT... in the name of Jesus. He is our protector and goes with us. If we perish, we perish. We know that absent in the body...present with the Lord." 2 Corinthians 5:8 I love that!!.
Friends, we either trust our Lord or we don't. May I give you this Lightness in your Darkness?
Whatever the outcome, God knows and has His divine plan. I want to say as Franklin Graham told the interviewer, " If we perish, we perish. " I too know, "absent in the body...present with the Lord." This is my Lightness in your Darkness. Reaching out to you.
