The days ahead look dim for this world. We as believers do not know how far into the downward spiral the Lord will leave us here. We know there is an escape from all promised in Luke 21:36, but we do not know when that escape will occur. So what?
The Lord has given us His great and precious promises to sustain us while we are here. Promises like what? Like this:
Psalm 37:18The blameless spend their days under the Lord’s care,
and their inheritance will endure forever.
19In times of disaster they will not wither;
in days of famine they will enjoy plenty.
^^ This tells us we spend our days under the Lord's care. Thanks be to God. It also tells us in times of disaster we will not wither. Take a look at the news. M 7 plus earthquakes, volcanoes, famines, droughts and floods are a daily occurrence. Disaster seems to be lurking everywhere, but we have a promise. Should we fear disaster or famine in the land? No, we have promises. We will live or die on the promises. The Word of God is our life, literally.
Do not fear the bad news all around us or the disasters that are coming upon the earth, we have promises. The Lord has kept His Word to this nobody all the days of his short life. If He did it for me He will do it for you. We serve a God who answers prayers and watches over His promises to fulfill them. Thanks be to God.
grace and peace
