Everywhere you look it seems that if this crisis or that crisis breaks out then, 'Oh No, the sky will fall.' In actual fact that is the case. North Korean threats. IRS scandals. Crazy weather. The rotting economy. Israel readying itself for yet another war, Iran doing war drills and building Islamic nuclear weapons aimed at Israel and America, and many more things lurking that are causes for concern. However, we have to ask ourselves this question: What do I do with all this? How do I get me out of all this. Where do I hide? The answer is very simple. Listen to God's Word:
Matthew 6:27-30, "Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?"
You might ask yourself, 'How can this be relevant for me today with all these problems in every direction?' The answer is, you must! Or, you can just go crazy with the rest of the world and take on their solutions to their problems that they have brought which will never lead you closer to God but into the depths of hell and despair. First, please realize that Yeshua knows what is happening on Earth and He is wanting His sheep to hear His voice and act accordingly. He is looking at how we react to this modern day Sodom and Gomorrah we live in. God's Word reveals our way of escape. Yeshua's sermon to His followers on the Mount is loaded with wisdom on how to cope right now, today. For your sake, don't take these Beatitudes spoken by the Messiah and think you have any options. You really don't. Just like the mostly misunderstood 10 Commandments, these wonderful thoughts are given by Adonai in order to keep us safe from evil, spiritually alert and prepared to take on whatever this fallen world wants to bring our way. Or, should you be filled with dread and woe, and looking for a solution from the world around you? All this world has to offer is a roadway to hell lined with lies and oppressive fear. Are you filled with fear about the days we live in? Do you think fear is a good thing? The Lord doesn't. The Word of God tells us that fear is tormenting (1 John 4:18, "There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.")
The bottom line in all the situations we observe around us...... God is bigger. I don't know what may happen to me down the road but I know Yeshua is with me and that is enough. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. No matter how things look, He is bigger than what I see with my eyes. The battle lines are drawn. I'm on the right side: His side. Come quickly Adonai Yeshua HaMashiach, Yeshua the Messiah and Prince of Peace. We win! I've read the end of the book and we win!
