“Resting”! ?

My mind is racing this morning from one thought to the next,Lord help me! Our world is in turmoil,but why should we be filled with anger as if all of these happenings are strange? God left us His word and we should be finding the comfort and hope we need to carry us through. But many are filled with hate and anger,and I just wonder,where is your faith? None of what we see or hear or think we’re so right about should move us away from God. This “Election” has brought out the worse in so many,and I know I should not be surprised by the way some who say they are Christians are acting. I see History repeating it’s self for sure,just as in Jesus day,He said the love of many would wax cold,mercy. What are we to do in this time of unrest ( a state of turmoil)? Well let’s go to the word of God where all of our help and strength comes from.

In Matthew 24 we find that unrest is part of God’s plan for this time in History.

F. Great falling away from true faith:

2 Thes.2:2,3  The day of Christ shall not come except there come a falling away (apostasy) first

Mat. 24:12  Iniquity shall abound…the love of many shall wax cold

Mat. 24:5,11,24  Arise false Christs, & false prophets…deceive many

1Tim. 4:1  In latter times some shall depart from the faith… giving heed to doctrines of devils

Taken from  :http://deeptruths.com/  by the way that is a very good sight.

God has forewarned us of these times we’re seeing,and if we’re to stand we must trust God. There is no other right way! Let’s rest :

Psalms 37:7 Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him; fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way, over the man who carries out evil devices!

Philippians 4:6-7 do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

  1. amen! If we know what is going to happen according to God’s word…..then why do we affix our hope on anyone from this world as if anyone from this world can fix things?

    1. How very true!! And yet many think that a man can fix everything,it’s time for hearts to be fixed.Thanks so much for your encouraging comment.
      Love you 😀

  2. Love it. That is so true. I had to delete one friend from my Facebook because he was so bitter and disrespectful toward the President of this USA.

    1. Hi,I tell ya it’s bad!! No respect at all for the President of the United States,none! And it’s not God’s will I don’t care how some try to justify themselves.Thanks for your encouraging comment and I do understand.
      Love you 😀

    1. Thank you Debbie and so am I,I try not to worry about it for God has it all under control and He keeps reminding me.I’m so glad you stopped in.

  4. You are right on target, Pat. When I am feeling overwhelmed I take comfort in the sovereignty of God who sets up leaders and brings leaders down (Isaiah 40).

    1. Hello John,that is why we should not be angry and mean to each other,because God got it all under control!!
