My reflections today March 13, 2020, with the today’s unfolding and developing events that are extremely overwhelming! I would say it is literally exponentially overwhelming!
Now, I would rather step back and draw inspiration from the Almighty Creator who through the Holy Scripture has mentioned AT LEAST 365 “fret nots” or “fear nots”. One “fear not” to cover a day in a year.
I now take refuge on the Holy Scriptures promises that whatever happens, the Almighty Creator has not changed through the eons and is always there until eternity.
Deuteronomy 31:6 has also this promise: “Be strong. Take courage. Don’t be intimidated. Don’t give them a second thought because GOD, your God, is striding ahead of you.”
People may not take the course of accepting the fact that man is doomed because of not being aligned with the Almighty Creator’s love and desire.
People may believe that there is no hell and it is wrong to believe in such things spoken of in the Holy Scripture. But there is Romans 3:10 “For the wages of sin is death.”
People may twist the thoughts intended by the Holy Scripture by just being religious, you are good to go! But there is Ephesians 2:8 -9. Religion nor being good is not it and the reason is that you will tend to boast about what you have done and not what the savior, Jesus Christ, has done.
I may be wrong with what I believe in and cling to. But I would rather be and purposefully wrong with what I believe than with the thoughts of such people who believe otherwise. You take on the arguments! And I rest my case to the Eternal Father who never fails in his promises.
I cling on to 1John1:9 .. on earth’s journey, I am still a failure. No one else offers hope but the Omnipresent and Omniscient Creator! I will stand by His precepts! Draw me near Lord!
Fellow believers, just cling on!
