Look we are in the year 2016 have you seen the world today have you seen what is going on do you see the crimes do you see what others are going through seeing what is going on in the world Today should give you something to fear about there is way too much uncertainty into days world I will be honest with you even the upcoming presidential scares me.
His saints; they are preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.
You know when you turn on the TV & you get nothing but bad news you know things are not right I can give you my personal thought I think the younger generation’s, Do not care as much as from 40 & up do and that does not help things, God has said teach your kids the way & some parents have not done that & look at the world. I have a lot of elderly saying the scared or concerned & I understand why they would be this is where they need to & we need to Go to Got for courage.
Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thin heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.
As a Pastor does it concern me in what I see in the world all the crime yes it does but I need to go to the lord for Strength & last month we spoke about strength like I said we are in a world of uncertainty & with that being said Seek the Lord to make it in today’s world.
2 Kings 6:16
…Fear not: for they that are with us are more than they that are with them.
One of the things that others say of me is that I’m very Honest strait forward am a Pastor you need to be, but I feel that into days world there is a lot wrong with it starting from the government & with some of the laws that are on the books that does not help anything & what the government needs to do is take a good look at the laws & fallow them in the (Bible it tells the Christians obey the laws of the land & we need to do that) but when you have a government or the young generation Not doing that then you live in a uncertain world.
Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.
Right here God ask us to trust him right yes we may lose are jobs cars or house or have finance trouble’s or deal with Cancer but take a moment no matter what it is & Trust Him. Psalm 31:24
Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the Lord.
And yes we all need Courage From Pastors to police to fire Doctors & Nurses we all need courage, let me tell you I’m a chaplain & I see so many things I go to God every day with them here is something you may not know we lost almost 35 Police officers already in 2016 & we are only 4 month into the year but yet every day in the USA thy still go out in the streets to fight Crime & wear the badge of courage so you & I can live safe try to understand where we would be without them it would not be pretty.
Be strong and take heart, all who hope in the Lord.
I’m I concerned about what direction this world is going in? You Bet but I also know that God is in control.
When I am afraid, I will trust in you. In God whose word I praise, in God I trust; I will not be afraid.
I cannot promise you what happens in this world I cannot tell you what’s going to happen I can tell you God has you & Do not be afraid for once we need to go to God on everything that is going on in the world today, it is sad believe me I know I see it.
”When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you blaze. For I am the Lord, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.
In my life time I thought I seen it all but I have not I thought I seen every disaster but I have not. There is more coming. I been on this earth for 54 years I seen from the WT towers being hit to Katrina & many more but does that mean I get scared and stop going outside NO it means I go to God with everything that we deal with or See
The Lord your God, who is among you, is a great and awesome God.
See even though things seem Bad in the world what does this verse tell you He has got you Right?
”I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
I shared about my struggle with leukemia & I know without God & his strength I would be weak. but I’m not I stand strong because he is here with me Standing next to me all the Time.
The Lord is my light and my salvation- whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life- of whom shall I be afraid?
This says it all right here do not fear but have faith & Trust do not be afraid for he is are stronghold like I said yes we are in an uncertain world, yes things look bad, I wonder what comes next but I can’t focus on that I need to focus on the Lord & you need to also.
Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.
Like I said I’m honest & what terrifies me the most is the presidential elections. To me it has been a Joke.
With your help I can advance against a troop; with my God I can scale a wall.
So this Says it right here we have no worries when we have God Right no matter what comes are way Gods Army is bigger amen
