Our hearts are grieved over the state of this world we live in!!!
“When you hear of wars and disturbances, do not be terrified; for these things must take place first, but the end does not follow immediately.” Luke 21:9 NIV
“These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 NAS
It’s not like we did not have any warnings . . . Jesus (and even the prophets of old) spoke of the times we are now facing . . . we should not let us overwhelm us.
What then shall we do?
P R A Y !!!
and . . . be in the Word! Seek out His Word for yourself today – ask Holy Spirit to give you His promises to cling to, to stand upon, to make your very own for your peace. His Word is POWER – His Word will NOT return void – what He says He WILL accomplish! Be at peace, dear ones, and continue to know that as we choose to make Him our High Tower, our Dwelling Place; as we take refuge under the Shadow of His Wing – abide in His presence – He WILL be our protector. . . and, even if we are caught up in death, we still WIN! Remember:
“Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? Just as it is written, “FOR YOUR SAKE WE ARE BEING PUT TO DEATH ALL DAY WE WERE CONSIDERED AS SHEEP TO BE SLAUGHTERED.” But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:35-39 NAS
Abba Father, we come before You today, hearts heavy with the news reports, the scenes of devastation, yet we KNOW You – Your love for us, and we rest in Your love and in the promises of Your Word. Lord, use this situation (these situations, natural disasters as well) to draw more unto You. Comfort as only You can, Holy Spirit, and continue to show us ways in which we can intercede and be of assistance. Lord, Jesus, You told us of these times, yet You also promised us Your PEACE (within our hearts, that passes ALL understanding). It is to that peace we cling now, as we pour out our heart felt prayers for our brothers and sisters in France. Thank You for being their peace, and thank You for Your protection. Amen and amen.
