We are free not because of circumstances but because we are not of this world. (John 15:19) We have a God that can make all things work for the good of those that love Him. (Romans 8:28) I don’t think for a moment that God wants things like this to happen or to see His children scared, but if we are willing to ‘watch in wonder’ we will be able to watch Him take chaos and create light. (Isaiah 55:8 - My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways.) We have a God of infinite wisdom.
The truth is, He is everything. I don’t think we are reminded of this often enough, not even in our churches. But in this life here, this is just a pixel in the big show. There is more to the story. Death of our earthly bodies is simply our final act of faith here on this earth. We need not fear what we don’t know when we know Him. There is so much more to come... so much better than we can even begin to understand.
Isaiah 29:16 It is a precious cornerstone that is safe to build on. Whoever believes need never be shaken.
A beautiful promise given to us long before Jesus walked the earth. A promise that the cornerstone is safe to build our entire life on. We need nothing else and when we only need the one thing that can never be taken from us... we are FREE!. Can I get an amen! And whoever believes this need never be shaken.
So may the peace that transcends all understanding be with you! - Philippians 4:7 || “I am leaving you with a gift - peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give as a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid. -John 14:27
Today He lives. Tomorrow He lives. Forever He lives. And we are His.
