In the uncertainty of these days, one wonders what might happen next. Political theater has become the order of the day in Washington; major cities are being terrorized by anarchists while elected officials argue over defunding the rule of law (i.e. military and local law enforcement); gullible people are buying into the lie that Socialism will work in America while it continues to destroy countries around the globe. Unrest, fear and uncertainty hold entire communities captive while we wait to see which ideology wins out in the coming election and whether there are those in the ruling class capable of effecting our promised deliverance.
In the midst of these chaotic times, the Lord has been teaching me through His Word, that those who accept His invitation to be adopted into His family by faith in His Son, Jesus Christ, are never helpless, never at the mercy of man. We belong to God; He is omnipotent (all powerful), omniscient (all knowing), and omni-present (all places at once). God, who insists that we call Him “Father,” has afforded us the wonderful privilege of coming into His presence at any time, day or night, to cast our cares upon Him in prayer. (1Peter 5:7) He, being omnipotent, is capable of doing “exceeding abundantly above all that we can ask or think.” (Ephesians 3:20) Because He is omniscient, we can rest assured that He understands our plight and can guide us on the paths through troubled times. (Psalm 139:1-5) Because He is omni-present, we will never be outside of the scope of His watchful eye (Psalm 139:7-12), never alone, never forsaken! (Hebrews 13:5)
We are far from helpless. We serve a God who cares. As the song writer has said, “Be not dismayed whate’er betide, God will take care of you; beneath his wings of love abide, God will take care of you. God will take care of you, through every day, o’er all the way; he will take care of you, God will take care of you.”
Care to join us? Jesus Christ said, “I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. (John 10:9)”
