Worries, problems, trials, and tribulations are big, but they are not bigger than God. Since this is so, why as a Christian, are you so worried, shocked, surprised, disturbed and fearful of the increase in violence or sin.
The Bible says, “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, truce breakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despiser of those that are good, traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God, having a form of Godliness, but denying the power thereof, from such things turn away.”(2 Timothy 3:1-5).
So, why are Christians so worried? We already know the outcome. Jesus said to Martha,in Luke 10:41~42 “…you are worried and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed,and Mary has chosen that good part,which will not be taken away from her”. The good part she chose was to hear the word of God. Have you chosen the good part? Remember,faith cometh by hearing the word of God,as Romans 10:17 points out. Furthermore, greater is He who is in us, than he that is in the world (1 John 4:4).
As seasoned Christians we are the first to know, what is happening as 2 Peter 3:3-4 says,”Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, and saying where is the promise of His coming?…” Here is another warning, “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, and is of the world, and the world passeth away, and the lust thereof; but he that doeth the will of God abideth forever. Little children, it is the last time; and as you have heard that the antichrist shall come, even now there are many antichrist, whereby we know that it is the last time…”(1 John 2:15-20) So why worry? Are you in right standing with God? You better get a spiritual check up.
Jude 17-21 says,”But you, beloved, remember the words which were spoken before by the apostles of the Lord Jesus Christ; How they told you that their will be mockers in the last time who would walk according to their own ungodly lust. These are sensual persons, who cause divisions, not having the Spirit. But you beloved, building yourselves up on the on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit. Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.” It’s time to stop worrying and do as 1 Thessalonians 5:16-22 says, “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. Do not quench the Spirit. Do not despise prophecies. Test all things, hold fast what is good. Abstain from every form of evil.” In John 14:14, Jesus reminds us that if we ask anything in His Name, He will do it. Put your faith into action and ask Him to take care of the problems, so you can stop worrying.
“Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity, for they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither like the green herb. Trust in the Lord and do good, so shall thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. Delight thyself also in the Lord, and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the Lord;trust also in Him,and He shall bring it to pass” (Psalms 37:1-5) Why worry when you can pray? “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace; In the world ye shall have tribulation; but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)
“But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us; We are troubled on every side yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted but not forsaken; cast down but not destroyed.” (2 Corinthians 4:7-10) Jesus tells us in John 14:1-4 not to allow our hearts to be troubled, because He has gone to prepare a better place for us, and will return for us. Are you ready for His return? Nevertheless, we according to His promise, look for new Heavens and a new earth, in which dwelleth righteousness. (2 Peter 3:13) Are you looking at the future? Or are you dwelling on the present day as if it will not change?
Better days are coming.
