Comfort For The Future

Revelation 21.pngAnd I heard a loud voice from the throne saying. “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them They will be his people and God himself will be with them and be their God.                     Revelation 21:3

In our day fear has cast a very dark shadow over the future. On the international scene there is ever-increasing tension, clashes between races and the seeming inability of leaders to handle even the most basic issues cause people to wonder what kind of world awaiting their children and grandchildren. It is impossible not to personalize national and international affairs, because of necessity you are part of humanity.

To be sheltered n the living Christ elevates your view above the temporal, giving you an exceptional appreciation of life. You realize that the times you live in, regardless of how tense and ominous they might appear, are still under God’s control. The Lord God Almighty still reigns and has not rejected His creation.

If you do believe in the omnipotence of God and if your faith is built on a steadfast foundation, it will have practical results in creating a positive attitude in your life. You will not fear the extinction of mankind, but rather believe in God’s redemptive work that will come to fulfillment in mankind.

To believe that God is working out His divine plan with us, is spite of our sin, enables us to maintain a well-balanced and calm attitude. The choice is yours, you can look to the future without God and experience depression and fear, or you can believe in God’s plan of redemption and approach the future comforted, and with trust.

Strength

Proverbs 31In the book of Proverbs 31 the author speaks about the wife of a noble character, as I read these words about a wife strength it is not just for a wife, however it is for any and ever woman who deals with a lot in her life.

She is clothed with strength and dignity, she can laugh at the days to come. She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction on her tongue. She watches over the affairs of her household, and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her. Many woman do noble things, but you surpass them all. Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting, but  woman who fears the Lord is be praise. Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.    Proverbs 31:23-31

These words from the book of Proverbs is for all woman, there are many women who have been both mother and father. Who had no choice but to work a full time job as well as run a household and raise children. There also some who decided to return to school to better themselves with a better paying job, and you have come to realize the strength you truly have. There are some who care for someone sick and you have become the caregiver sometimes twenty-four hours a day, and yet some have to deal with your own personal pain and struggles in life. When those days become somewhat difficult for you to bear turn to God’s word and pray for your strength to get you thru each moment of your day. Remember these words in proverbs you are clothed with dignity, and your strength comes from God.
