We live in difficult times. Very difficult. Millions have been infected with Covid-19, leading to great fear for many. Millions more are unemployed, and with unemployment about to run out for many, a lot of families are afraid. And if that wasn’t enough, protests and riots seem to fill the news. Safety seems a thing of the past-where do we turn?
Look Up! It’s a physical fact that one can not look up and look down at the same time! So focus on God, and on where we are going (Heaven). There’s an old saying “God will NOT lead you where His Grace can not sustain you”.
Hold on to that. For our Lord and Heaven are coming! And no power on this earth can change that!
A friend sent me this from Worthy Devotionals, it seemed so perfect I couldn’t resist sending it on 🙂
“Roger Babson, a famous statistician was having lunch with the President of Argentina, “Mr. Babson,” the President said, “I have been wondering why it is that South America, with all its natural advantages, mines of iron, copper, coal and silver, rivers and great waterfalls is so far behind North America?” Babson replied, “Well, Mr. President, what do you think is the reason?” He answered, “..South America was founded by the Spanish who came in search of gold. North America was founded by the Pilgrims who went there in search of God.” If we live a life of seeking gold — the blessings of God but not God Himself — we end up losing both. The Pilgrims, who gave us the wonderful holiday of Thanksgiving, came in search of God. It is because of this that America has reaped blessing upon blessing.” “Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”
