Confusion

The prophets were instructed to comfort a captive people in a foreign land. It was a time of confusion and trial but comfort would come from the Word of God.

Isaiah 40:1

“Comfort, yes, comfort My people!”
Says your God.

Fox, CNN, CBS or Facebook will not provide what is necessary for peace of mind during the present crisis but the Word of God will.

Think about it.

Be Wise

You might say, “You don’t realize what I’m facing.” (Really) Is God missing in this equation?

Matthew 10:16

 “Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves. Therefore be wise as serpents and harmless as doves.

Go out there and be assured as Christians God is with us.

Uncertainty

This time of year we are observing the trees for the return of life.

Here’s one that needs special attention.

Proverbs 3:18

She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her, And happy are all who retain her.

We find in the Word of God a map to navigate this worldly jungle of uncertainty.

Give it some thought.

Mind

If ever there was a trapping season it’s now.

2 Corinthians 10:5

 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,

Bring those thoughts into captivity and be obedient to Christ.

Our problem is not what is going on in the world around us but what is simmering in our mind.

Light

We didn’t know it was coming, but God did.

We don’t know how long it will stay, but God does.

We don’t know the purpose behind it, but God does.

John 12:46

I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in Me should not abide in darkness

Many similar situations are found as we journey through the Word of God.

In light of this fact, we shouldn’t be in the dark when it relates to man’s struggles throughout the last 6,000 years.

Outfit

Come on now, I know you are social distancing and probably self-quarantined but get off the couch and get dressed.

You know as Christians you are to put on a particular outfit every day and go out and face the fight.

Ephesians 6:10

 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

We pray for you as soldiers of the cross who are lifting Him up before the world.

Ephesians 6:18

praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints

Think about it.

Gary

Worry

People with a lot to worry about were listening to Jesus preach.  In that sermon was the cure for worry.

We have such limited control over life’s happenings but He is in complete control.

Matthew 6:25

“Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? 

Read Matthew 6 and get a needed blessing.  Sure, you have time.
