Over the last few weeks people in America and across the world have been led to believe that there is no hope. If you listen to one news program they tell you one side is wrong and the other program tells you the other side is wrong. In actuality they are both correct there is no hope if you put your trust in man. I say do not worry or fret because we were told it would be this way. Put your trust in God and do not worry as he is our provider, our protector and our redeemer. Also do not get caught up in the bickering over this, that, or the other as we are ALL children of God no matter what our opinions may be.
5 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. 6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places.
Philippians 2: 14,15
14 Do all things without complaining and disputing, 15 that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world,
11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
8 Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.
I have an exercise for everyone this week. If you want to see what the weather is going to be like check the weather channel, if you want sports news check the newspaper, if you need to know traffic conditions they are given on the top of the hour on all radio stations. This week remove anything negative from your lives. Don't check the market, don't watch FOXNEWS, MSNBC, OR CNN. Rely on the Word of God for guidance. Pass this on to everyone who you know would not be offended as we want this to be a positive change and change can only happen when we embrace it. Next week let's see how our worlds have changed.
Have a blessed week,
