Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever-Hebrews 13:8
Today, I recieved some very sad news and I thought to put this, incase you are in a bad place yourself.
Yes, this life is crazy. Yes, it can be extremely sad sometimes but God is still God and He is on the throne.
He is watching your every step and cheering you on as you run the race.
Don’t give up. He is on the throne, He is the same, NEVER CHANGING GOD.
Yes! Loved ones die, hearts get broken, people get raped and lives get changed forever BUT God is still God and He is still on the throne.
Life is still worth living. The fact that you are not dead is a sign that He is not done with you. He is working with you, on you and for you.
See what He says in His word,
Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. ~ Isaiah 41:10
There are no coincidences with God, He who gave His only son t0 die for you knows what He is doing.
In the words of Elisabeth Elliot who lost her husband on the mission field,
“Our vision is so limited we can hardly imagine a love that does not show itself in protection from suffering…. The love of God did not protect His own Son…. He will not necessarily protect us – not from anything it takes to make us like His Son. A lot of hammering and chiseling and purifying by fire will have to go into the process.”
Yes! He is God and He is good!
Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him.James 1:12
This is not the end. People have gone through worse things and have come out stronger.
It’s going to be fine. It would be for HIS glory!
We must accept finite disappointment, but we must never lose infinite hope. ~ Martin Luther King
YOU ARE LOVED!
If you don’t know Jesus, He is waiting for you with open arms. He is waiting to wrap you with His peace and lead you in this sad world. I want to encourage you to give Him you Today.
You are loved,
