Summary: Living in the trust of God is a great place to live! It’s where the peace that passes understanding flows freely and gives great comfort against the what if’s of life the accuser continually throws at all of us!
The Family of God
Matthew 24:36-39 NKJ
36 “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only. 37 But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 38 For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, 39 and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.
Never in our lifetimes have we witnessed, so much unrest, so much turmoil, or such an attack of spiritual warfare. And it’s all happening in real time, right before our very eyes!
Riots, looting, the burning down of people’s businesses and dreams. Along with the attempted ruination of everything, most all of society holds dear as decent, moral and good.
Just when we think we have seen it all, we turn on the news and are repeatedly horrified! Make no mistake, we have not seen it all yet, the devil is pulling out all the stops!
The Bible says no man knows the day or the hour when the Son of Man will return! This includes the accuser too!
So when we feel like the eastern sky may split open and the Rapture could happen at any moment, what do suppose satan is thinking?
Every generation has felt what we’re feeling. Chaos has been created by the accuser nonstop since the day of the devils fall from heaven!
To trust what you know or to trust what you see, is the question!
And the decision which is made between those two choices, is what either gives you sweet peace of mind despite the turmoil, or makes you worry, from worry to worry your whole life through!
TBS.(the Bible says) in Mark 6:34 NKJ
34. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
Msg. Bible says it this way
“Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.
I hear you, I hear what your saying. Seems as though doubt always raises questions. But what about the “what ifs” they’ll say?
Here’s a question. What if all hell were to break loose?
All of hell has been busting at the seams in total panic, since the day Jesus shook the gates off the place and took away the keys!
God’s instructions are to focus on what Jesus has already done, what Jesus is doing now and what Jesus is going to do day after day, until God the father says to the Son “go and get my children and bring them home!”
Romans 5:3-5, 20-21 MSG
3-5 There’s more to come: We continue to shout our praise even when we’re hemmed in with troubles, because we know how troubles can develop passionate patience in us, and how that patience in turn forges the tempered steel of virtue, keeping us alert for whatever God will do next. In alert expectancy such as this, we’re never left feeling shortchanged. Quite the contrary—we can’t round up enough containers to hold everything God generously pours into our lives through the Holy Spirit!
(Both the accuser and the world, wants you to only focus on the sin in the world. The peace everyone desires isn’t found in the sin.
The peace everyone desires, is found in the one who delivered the sin defying message of Grace and has overcome all sin for us, so we could be forgiven of our sin! And His name is Jesus, the Messiah, our Saviour, our Healer, our Deliverer!)
20-21 All that passing laws against sin did was produce more lawbreakers. But sin didn’t, and doesn’t, have a chance in competition with the aggressive forgiveness we call grace. When it’s sin versus grace, grace wins hands down. All sin can do is threaten us with death, and that’s the end of it. Grace, because God is putting everything together again through the Messiah, invites us into life—a life that goes on and on and on, world without end.
Reminds of some promising words of an old hymn
Grace, grace, God’s grace,
Grace that will pardon and cleanse within
Grace, grace, God’s grace,
Grace that is greater than all our sin.
Song by, Daniel B. Towner, Julia H. Johnston
Gods Grace Jesus delivered, came on the scene and turned the spiritual world upside down!
And for all who have embraced and accepted Jesus, Gods gift of Grace. They have been turning the accusers world on its head, since the day of the arrival of Gods Grace!
