Remember this verse: “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.”. With it becoming more difficult to find True Bibles in other countries, we must prepare for a day when they may become more difficult to find in America. And believe it or not, that day will come! That is why it is so important to hide God’s Word in your heart, where no one can ever take it 🙂
“Now Elijah the Tishbite, of Tishbe in Gilead, said to Ahab, “As the Lord, the God of Israel, lives, before whom I stand, there shall be neither dew nor rain these years, except by my word.” 2 And the word of the Lord came to him: 3 “Depart from here and turn eastward and hide yourself by the brook Cherith, which is east of the Jordan. 4 You shall drink from the brook, and I have commanded the ravens to feed you there.” – 1 Kings 17:1-4
Although Elijah knew that there was a great drought coming and that there would be no food or water, his Hope, and indeed his Help came from the Lord. Key here: Elijah listened and obeyed God 🙂
“But those who wait on the Lord Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.”-Isaiah 40:31
“Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.”- Romans 12:12
When life is hard, fight to hold on to hope. Let your faith in who God is and what He says to keep you firmly rooted. “Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful” (Hebrews 10:23).
“’For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’” (Jeremiah 29:11, NIV)
“You are my hiding place and my shield; I hope in Your word.”-Psalm 119:114
“Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.” -Deuteronomy 31:16
“The Lord your God in your midst, The Mighty One, will save;
He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love,
He will rejoice over you with singing”-Zephaniah
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” – John 3:16
“Where is the hope? The hope that each of us have, is not in who governs us, or what laws are passed, or what great things we do as a nation. Our hope is in the power of God working through the hearts of people. And that’s where our hope is in this country. And that’s where our hope is in this life.”-Chuck Colson
There is no doubt that many in our government and media have fallen for Satan’s lies. How sad for them! Pray for them that the Holy Spirit will open their eyes to the truth-in time!
Fortunately for us, our Hope, indeed our Help, does not come from them! Our Hope and our Help come from the Lord. And our prayer for America should be that as many American’s turn back to our Lord as possible.
However, we are not citizens of any nation; we are citizens of Heaven. While life on earth may at times seem really hard, it is incredibly short compared to our eternal lives in Heaven. So please, take Jesus’s Hand and keep walking. Keep Following Christ, for our Home in Heaven awaits, and there, all suffering will end and joy and peace will begin 🙂
Prepare, Pray & Be Ready!
