As You Rest, Let’s Ponder On These Things

A third of the world is on one form of lock down or the other and the media is awash with all manner of information. All geared towards scaring the living day lights out of their viewers, readers and listeners. This is good of course. They say the information is to keep the people informed and to make them comply with the laws and regulations of the regulators of the societies. There is no problem with this, since it is for the well being of the people. However, instead of making people feel at ease, the overload of information has planted unwarranted fears in the hearts of people. To bring this home, as sons of God, why are there so many amongst the ranks that are secretly fearful? Remember, what is coming from the world and the government is information and NOT revelation. If we believe this, why is the information coming out informing our state of minds? Beloved, what are you afraid of? Jesus said to His Disciples: “…’Come away by yourselves to a remote place and rest awhile’…

And This Too Shall Pass

“Therefore let us approach the Throne of Grace with boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us at the proper time” (Hebrews 4:16).        Looking at the canvass of the world right now, there is fear, pain, chaos, confusion and death. One would think with all that is going on, the enemy and his agents will take a break from their evil works. Not really! Rather, they reinforce the pain, confusion and chaos by spreading fear through every platform they can lay their hands on. We are warned in the Bible not to fear their fear: “Do not call everything an alliance these people say is an alliance. Do not fear what they fear; do not be terrified” (Isaiah 8:12). But we are encouraged to stand and remain standing in our faith in Christ Jesus: “As you have therefore received Christ, [even] Jesus the Lord, [so] walk (regulate your lives and conduct yourselves) in union with and conformity to Him” (Colossians 2:6, AMP). Since fear is spread by what people hear and take to hea…

Take Care How You Listen!

“The hidden things belong to the Lord our God, but the revealed things belong to us and our children forever, so that we may follow all the words of this law” (Deuteronomy 29:29).        There is a warning Jesus Christ gave His disciples that we at this present time must not lose sight of. After explaining the meaning of a parable He had just taught them and the public, He said: “For nothing is concealed that won’t be revealed, and nothing hidden that won’t be made known and come to light. Therefore take care how you listen…” (Luke 8:17-18a). So many at this time are not listening! This is evident in the chaos witnessed in the society, from government to the home front. Things and decisions that are clearly discerned are sounding as if they are from another planet. Certain decisions taken and you wonder if the person while taking it at the time was sane to begin with. We are living in a time that Wisdom is clearly shouting from the street corners but sadly, the voice of foolishness an…
