Everywhere we can hear people groaning in pain . . . crying for justice . . . struggling for recognition . . . disappointed with the situation . . . disgusted, angered, bruised, envied and more negatives all around. These are all the results of being so abusive, misusing resources on hand, and overusing what is not intended for something. Definitely, this is a misdemeanor.
The condition of the world is getting worse and worse. In fact, everyday, we hear degrading news about heinous crimes and perversions. Tensions are all around! Apparently, it’s all over the world! We can hear deaths, accidents, calamity after calamity striking several countries . . . like flash floods, earthquakes, great fires burning wild forests, hundreds of houses and/or lives, global warming and its intensive effects to the people and the whole world in general.
We are seemingly experiencing an initial cleansing if this is it! Cleansing, why? To eradicate those which do not please God. I guess, God is teaching us lessons to give our total trust to Him in all our ways and lean not on our own understanding but in all our ways acknowledge Him . . . and He shall direct our paths. This passage was emphasized to us in the book of Psalm 3:5-6.
Why can’t we just give our all concerns to God? Why do we need to struggle when we have a God for all seasons? His dwelling place is in our hearts . . . the inner vacuum within. He speaks through our spirit man and not through our possession, not through our educational attainment, not because we are an achiever, not because of our position, and not even through our influence. Everything is vanity! God blesses us with every possible blessing because He wants us to be a blessing to those in need.
One of the things that God wants us to redirect our lives is in Psalm 37:4 which says: “Delight yourself also in the LORD: and he shall give you the desires of your heart.” It means “TRUSTING HIM” with all our hearts. This passage is consummated in the book of Psalm 3:5-6; TRUST in the Lord with all your hearts . . . . and He shall direct our paths! Remember that our choices determine our future. Whether we fail or we succeed . . . it’s a matter of choice! Let us all declare . . . "I trust you Lord!"
I love Joshua’s declaration in the book of Joshua 24:15; “As for me and my house we will serve the Lord.” Definitely, My family and I will serve the Lord. There’s nothing like being with the Lord. Nothing beats, ever, experiencing the goodness of the Lord, Jesus Christ in our daily life! He is Matchless! God is Awesome! He is amazingly wonderful! His grace and His favor always make our way possible!
To Him be Glory, Honor! and Thanksgiving! Forever and ever . . . Amen!
