As the coming of the Lord draws ever nearer, several unprecedented happenings, decisions, policies and stance around the world that defies logic, negates our beliefs and generally irritate the sensibilities of many will happen and is happening. I can imagine how stupefied the people in the days of Noah were, when they saw him building such a gigantic ship far from any huge body of water under clear skies, no wonder they mocked and laughed at him, thereby sentencing themselves to annihilation! This scenario is reenacting itself even in our days. Jesus Christ used the same analogy to tell the people how His coming will be like. Unfortunately, several thousands of years after, man is yet to learn this lesson. The reason for this may be attributed in some cases to fear. Fear of what to eat, to wear, to live and of the future have made so many align their thoughts and beliefs to ways that negate the word of God. Friend, no matter your circumstances, it is not enough for you to shift your ground concerning your belief in Christ. The world teaches us that when faced with certain inescapable situations we should shift grounds in order to have a win/win situation. Unfortunately the reverse is the case in the Kingdom of God. There is no win/win situation but a win/lose one. You either win with Christ or lose with the devil; it all depends on your stance. Don’t allow fear of the unknown make you say or do things that are contrary to God; it is better to be quiet and allow God to do the talking! When faced with such situations that call to question your faith in God, God says: “Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you; I will help you; I will hold on to you with My righteous right hand” (Isaiah 41:10). The strength of God is released to you to hold on to Him even as He holds you so as not to fall from your own stability. God bless you.
