These days we hear so many negative comments like “This world is going to hell in a hand basket.” There is so much evil in this world. We hear about it, read about it, watch the news and horrible documentaries over it. It’s televised, broadcast and instant messaged all around us. We mope over the horribleness we see. We lament about circumstances we do not have control over. We go on and on about things that are shocking and sad.
REALLY, FOR REAL, WE SHOULD BE…
Reminding ourselves daily that no matter what happens in this world, because if you can think it up, it can happen, GOD IS STILL AT WORK! He is continuously drawing people nearer and nearer to Him. He uses His people to shine the light on His word and His way. Not all people choose to open their eyes to it, BUT NOT ALL PEOPLE CHOOSE NOT TO EITHER! There are still people being SAVED by Jesus, because they choose to be. This world may be evil and down right ugly, but WE ARE NOT OF THIS WORLD!
I get so discouraged when I hear people going on and on about the state of our nation and world. They talk about how pitiful and ohhh what a shame it is that it has gotten so corrupt. Even to go on about this, to me, is adding to it. We talk about how negative the daily news is, but when we talk about it, aren’t we falling into the trap they are setting for us? That is what this world wants us to do. That is what the devil wants us to do. That nasty little demon wants us to talk about bad stuff and go on and on about horrible things. He wants US to broadcast his hate. Let’s not do it!
SAY NO! Stand up for JESUS! Broadcast what is GOOD in this world and that only through JESUS can you have the JOY and PEACE that we all long for.
You want to stop seeing all the nasty that goes on in this world? Look to JESUS!
I promise, God is still at work. He is. We only need to look toward the mighty works HE does and not to all the other stuff. If it’s not OF GOD, it’s not worth our time.
GOD IS STILL AT WORK!
