The year 2020 has been filled with fear and stress.
As this year comes to a close, we are still dealing with uncertainty.
What will happen to our country? What will we face if the darkness continues to take control of our nation? Will "right be right ever again?" Will lies now be truth? What will our children learn outside of our home?
Most of all... how will GOD deal with a nation that still continues with abortion, expanding sex trade, same sex marriage and transgenderism?
He WILL deal with it. It is just a matter of time.
As some of us make commitments at the end of each year to try to control our lives better by losing weight, eating healthier or exercising - I must clearly tell you that there is ONE thing that is completely out of your control.
You cannot "add to" or "take away from IT."
"IT" is time.
Not just the day to day time you spend at work, at home or with others; but the time God has already chosen for you to live out. Face it...your days here in this earthly life are written in HIS book.
Have you ever awakened to a new day and really understood that you are another day closer to the day that your life here will be over? You may say, "Oh how morbid!"
I am not trying to be a Debbie downer, just honestly bringing to light the inevitable.
Most do not give it much thought. But with the end of the year coming upon us (a very stressful year to say the least), how much time do you think you have left, and what will you do with it?
As King David so aptly points out,
“You have made my days a mere handbreadth; the span of my years is as nothing before you. Each man’s life is but a breath.” (Psalm 39:4–5).
The apostle James echoes this:
“You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes” (James 4:14).
Indeed, our time on earth is fleeting—in fact, it is infinitesimally small compared to eternity.
To live as God would have us live, it is essential we make the best possible use of our allotted time.
What do you think are the things that you should focus on in this life?
As far as my faith...I know that only what I do for Christ will last an eternity.
Without a doubt, THIS should be our focus my friend.
When I imagine myself taking my last few breaths, I want to close my eyes and smile, knowing that I did try to use all the ability He gave me to tell others of His saving love and grace.
As HE reaches for my hand at the end of my life, I want to know that I also reached out to others in the likeness of Him in this life.
Dear friend, the time that we live in is hard.
We are pressed on every side to conform and compromise.
We are told we MUST accept change and immoral living.
We are told to change our speech and our thoughts as to not offend.
This is in direct opposition to what Christ has commanded us to do.
Please do not be fooled into thinking that sitting in church on Sunday is sufficient
to overcome your trials, your burdens, or assure you of a heavenly home one day.
GOD desires YOU! Your time, your heart, your mind, your entire life.
If you truly belong to Him, He has a plan for your life. What is it? Ask him.
Moses prayed, “Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom” (Psalm 90:12).
A good way to gain wisdom is to learn to live each day with an eternal perspective.
Our Creator has set eternity in our hearts (Ecclesiastes 3:11).
Knowing that we will have to give an account to the One who gives us time should motivate us to use it well! In his letter to the Ephesians, Paul cautioned the saints, “Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.”
But in the world today we are told we must NOT speak, not offend with our words.
With the fear of COVID-19 and the mask wearing - no one wants to speak anyone!
How do we plant seeds of faith, give them hope for a heavenly home if we cannot converse with anyone? Ah, the devil loves the situation we are in!
We have been muzzled.
Fear has been instilled in the hearts of most.
Our nation is tittering on the brink of socialism and a complete moral breakdown.
Truth and morals are being washed away...truthfully, they have gone out with the tide!
Yet, my friend, God never changes.
His Word never changes.
There is a north, south, east and west.
There is sunrise and sunset.
The world still follows HIS creation plan even though the world of man is doing it's best to change all that is moral and true.
NOW, the world even strives to "change" our natural GOD-GIVEN DNA with this new COVID vaccine!
Be warned, God will not be mocked! I will not take the vaccine.
My life is in HIS hands - not the hands of any man/government/world.
Take time today my dear friend, to focus on what is taking place at this time in your life and in your world.
Are you talking with God?
Are you asking Him to guide you and help you to do His will in your life?
Are you asking Him about "how" to handle what the world is now trying to push into your life?
