Oh! The comfort and joy in the knowledge of the safety in these hands:
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” (Romans 8:28)
A virus has become the latest tragedy to overcome. Panic sets in and the whole world is changing. Stores are becoming empty. Sporting events are being cancelled or postponed. Schools are closing and the Dow is falling at a rapid rate. Churches are being asked to limit worship attendance to less than 250. Elected officials are ‘self-quarantining’ and politicians are pointing fingers. Political campaigns are taking a break, but debates continue. Sporting events that are continuing are doing so without fan attendance. It’s Crazy and yet, there are those who are not concerned at all. These people are not suffering from a mental deficiency, but benefitting from “Spiritual Power”! Those are the people who know in whom they have placed their faith and are assured that they are in good hands. You see, they have heard the call and are continuing to do as God would have them do. My only concern is for those who have failed to answer that call. My Bible teaches that everyone is born to do as God would have them do. Everyone is given gifts that serve the purpose of glorifying God. Everyone doesn’t believe that and therefore, they have idea as to why they are ‘here’ for. Sad, but true. Romans 8:28 is meant for all, regardless of nationality. Romans 8:28 was true in Apostle Paul’s day and it is true today and every day until God has Gabriel blow that horn. But, since so many are wandering the earth, totally confused and concerned with this world’s difficulties, they will come face to face with God’s Wrath and they will not like what happens after that. I’ve been sharing these facts for years. I’ve seen my words fall on closed ears and I weep in my heart. But, I sing in my soul. I shout warnings, but I have a peace about all this furor, simply because “I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that HE is able to keep that which I’ve committed to HIM, until that day”! YOU??
Won’t you answer the call today?
And that’s what I get from My box of chocolates. AMEN
