“The Lord has chastened me sore, but he has not given me over unto death”-Psalm 118:18
There is no doubt looking around our world that life is harder than it used to be! And sadly, a lot of this is our own fault. As a nation, we turned our backs on the Lord; we disobeyed God repeatedly. Yes, absolutely, there are many who still Follow Jesus and obey God, but our country is led by those who do not. And there are a number of countries led by those who do not obey God. And sadly, we all pay the price.
But there is also a passage in the Psalm that says:
“The Lord is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?
The Lord taketh my part with them that help me: therefore shall I see my desire upon them that hate me.
It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man.”
For those who Follow Jesus, we need not fear :). For those who do not Follow Jesus, it is not too late-yet.
Prepare, Pray and Be Ready!
