One day soon...
One day soon…"The Lord will be king over the whole earth. On that day there will be one Lord, and His name the only name" Zechariah 14:9
I am overcome with joy when I think about the soon return of Christ. I am quickly reminded that believers all have a future & it's one full of hope! I know the present troubles can overshadow this truth but it's all temporary. All wind & waves as a dear friend of mine would say. Wind & waves distracted Peter from walking in faith to Jesus on the water when He called out for Him. There are events that take place in our life that are nothing more than "wind & waves" and learning to recognize them for the distraction they are is crucial. The Bible tells us over and over to expect trouble in this life but to encourage one another with hope!
Acts 14:22 "strengthening the disciples and encouraging them to remain true to the faith. "We must go through many hardships to enter the kingdom of God," they said."
Today whatever "trouble" may be looming remind yourself that Jesus walks with you. There is nothing that you can't conquer with God on your side Allow troubles to strengthen your faith & rest in the truth that yes, He has indeed overcome the world!!
John 16:33 "I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world."
