SELAH Daily Devotions!
No king is saved by the size of his army; no warrior escapes by his strength. A horse is a vain hope for deliverence, despite all its great strength it cannot save. But the eyes of the Lord are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love to deliver them from death and keep them alive in famine. We wait in hope for the Lord, he is our help and our shield. In Him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name.May your unfailing love, rest upon us, O Lord, even as we put our hope in you. Psalm 33:16-22
WOAH! TIME OUT! It’s obvious that there’s a whole lotta shakin’ going on, huh? To those of us who have experienced an eye-opening awakening of our spiritual understanding realize that we’re definitely living in the times that have been prophesied not just by the Ancient patriots of faith but even Jesus himself! (Ref. Matthew 24:6) WHO KNU?
Any given morning, we wake up to broadcasts of the latest epidemic of civic unrest, chaotic rioting, slayings, wars and rumors of wars, unraveling of corrupt political slanderers of ice and fire, global warming, earthquakes and floodings, threats of government shutdowns, human trafficking, corporate bankruptcy, lay-offs, hackers, airport and school shootings, drug overdoses, suicides coupled with sporatic plane, train and car crashes. It’s no wonder that so many of us are stressed out, right?
Yet! As Believers, we have an advantage that the world knows not of! We know that now is not always! According to our Heavenly King, the sufferings of this present time, are not worth even sweating over; compared to the glorious future that awaits us at His Appearance! There’s no denying that it’s extremely difficult to not be frustrated as the wickedness of man profusely increases, nevertheless, we have a Hope that reaches beyond this world! The Word of God stands firm forever! (Ref. Psalm 33:10-11)
Scriptures reveal that sometimes, God allows the horsemen to trample over our heads. Nonetheless, when we are faced with the harshness of life’s real-time woes, we must anchor our trust in His Unfailing Love; knowing that it’s just a temporary set-up to catch our enemies off-guard to their imminent destruction and our inevitable Triumph! (Ref. 2 Corinthisans 2:14) The Word of God assures us that when we’re at our weakest, His Faithfulness to save, rescue and cover us is stronger than our momentary doubts and fears!
Children, when your heart is overwhelmed, look to The Rock from which you were hued! (Ref. Isaiah 51:1) The One who stands beside us is Greater than the ones who are against us. (Ref. 1 John 4:4) For The Eyes of The Lord are always looking on His Beloved and His Ears are ever attentive to the cries of those whose hearts revere and Hope in His Holy Name! Didjaheardat?
