Psalm 2:1 Amplified Bible "Why do the nations assemble with commotion [uproar and confusion of voices], and why do the people imagine (meditate upon and devise) an empty scheme?"
Sometimes it is just plain difficult to watch the evening news! One could wonder if there is any good thing left to report on! Nation after nation seems to be in confusion, chaos, uproar.
Such amazing unrest. Each nation in commotion and trying to work out their own plans for their own agenda. Noise and clamoring and fears and chaos. Remember, their scheme is empty - don't give it any power! Only God's plan matters......
And I have to marvel at how many voices there are telling us what this is and what that means. This is man's own understanding - and how reliable is that?
I am thankful beyond measure that I have The Book that is the manual to life, the marching orders from the High Commander.
I listen to Him and my fears are quieted. I listen to Him and my reason returns. I listen to Him and I have this overflowing measure of Peace that I cannot explain. The world remains the same but I do not. I have the Book, the Bible, to go to with any question I could ever have and get the answer that I need - the true answer that I need. I know things are bad. I know things are hard and unstable. In the natural it looks frightful and unsolvable. But, thank God, I know the One who is really in control - Christ Jesus.
The news changes day after day, as new information comes out and around to us. But it really doesn't matter. Remember Believers in Christ, that we are living in the end of days, the closing of this age, and all these things must be (Matthew 24). However, I believe with the united power of prayer with all the Saints that we can hold back the judgment due and usher in an amazing wave of the Holy Spirit yet to be seen. We are the 'end' bookend to the Book of Acts. We are coming full circle for the Bride to become what she was designed to be, called to be, set forward to be. Read the Book of Acts again and see if this is where you are. We are to be powerful in His Might.
So are you? Are you staying in Peace? Are you pulling down strongholds around you? Are you marching to the commands of the High Commander? Who are you listening to? Who commands you?
One becomes two, two becomes three: two in agreement, and a three-fold cord that cannot be broken. Rise up Church. Get out your wedding dress! We are going to a wedding soon! Do not be left behind!
