When Oh When Lord?
I look at the world we live in today in 2021 and it’s safe to say that this world seems to be going to hell in a handbasket (so to speak) or as Hillary put it “A Basket of Deplorables”.
If you start your day watching national news outlets it’s easy to become discouraged or distraught over the state of our nation or the international community as a whole as the China Virus scare continues to intensify. Nations have closed their borders not wanting to spread the virus, but here in the US our president has ordered the southern border opened wide in spite of the virus.
We have nobody but ourselves to blame. When God sent a warrior with the specific purpose to stop evil and become God’s sword against the Spirit of Political Correctness we as a nation laughed. When the flaming arrows and darts were flying, we may have even launched a few ourselves.
Was God surprised?
Throughout the history of mankind when God spoke to a man, he listened and said “Yes Lord, I am”.
Other men mocked and made fun of or laughed. They thought it was foolishness.
We are not the first nation whose leader has dived headfirst into the role of playing god. Nor will we be the last. We might however be the last generation of Americans who shunned God, questioned his decisions and banished him from the public square. We are now using the China Virus as a means to an end – the end of freedom.
I am reminded of the story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego in the Old Testament.
Daniel 3: 16-18
16 Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, answered and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this matter.
17 If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king.
18 But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.
Individually and collectively we are at a point in our lives where either we trust God or we trust government (man) to rescue us. We have been herded like sheep to the slaughter. Isolate – Social Distance – Mask up – Vaccinate – and wait for the “all clear” to be sounded.
It’s never going to.
Instead of worrying about “what if” we are going to die from the virus, maybe we should be celebrating the abundant life we have been given by Almighty God.
In case you have been paying too much attention to all those commercials about looking and feeling younger, less wrinkles and softer looking skin or the tonic that adds years onto your life (they don’t), I have GREAT NEWS for you.
Nobody gets out of here alive. There are no U-Hauls behind the funeral car. Your bank account doesn’t transfer over to a heavenly savings and loan account. God uses gold to pave the streets of heaven but you may find yourselves among the fire and brimstone crew.
And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the LORD, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.”
I have made up my mind, have you?
I WILL TRUST IN GOD. – I am the Real Truckmaster!
