I was discouraged, I was in chaos, and I wondered what sort of mess would befall me next.
I know we all have times like this, as I titled my published book," My Christian Journey Through a Fallen World". But sometimes you just have to be honest and say, " Lord, where are you?
When I see the outcome of the mid-term elections and the voters are so divided. I can understand people having their opinions on the different candidates, but, when I see that people are voting for ungodly policies, like abortion, and defunding the police, then I have to ask myself, does anyone care about, " thus saith the Lord?"
Sadly, there are Christ -followers, ( they say) that are against what God has revealed in His Holy Word.
If we are truly putting our trust in Jesus as our Savior, that He is our sin forgiver, then how can we NOT put Him and all His teachings in the Holy Scriptures as foremost in our stand for righteousness?
I'm not talking about when I mentioned abortion, that if you have sadly done this in your life, just know that as a Christ believer, YOU have been forgiven when you ask for that sin. Remember, sin is sin, there are no degrees to our sins.
Only people put degrees on different sins. God does not! He died for ALL sins, not one sin over another. And as a saved child of God, He takes our sins and buries them in the depth of the sea, never to be remembered again. How, how marvelous. My sins are forgiven.
Now, I say, " Why am I discouraged? Why do I ask, " God where are YOu?". Because of the people. I go to Psalms 46; 10-11 be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. Lord, I know that You are on your throne. I ask, will You hide my soul in the cleft of the rock? I know I will be safe there with YOU.
You told us that in this world we will have tribulations, so I should not be surprised.
I just ask again, Lord, " will you hide my soul in the cleft of the Rock that shadows a dry thirsty land? You hideth my life in the depths of Your love and covers me there with Your hand. I rest in this my Lord. I will stand still and see the glory of the Lord.
Oh, what a Savior, is Jesus, my Lord. You hideth my soul in your protection and love!
I am in Him....He is in me. I will hideth my soul in the cliff of the rock. Jesus will protect me there. Please come and go with me.
