“When you hear of wars and insurrections, do not be terrified; for these things must take place first, but the end will not follow immediately….there will be great earthquakes and famines and plagues.” …. I will give you words and a wisdom that none of your opponents will be able to withstand or contradict….By your endurance you will gain your soul.” Luke 21:5 – 19
I just read an account of the devastating storm in the Philippines, killing thousands of people and leaving many more without food or shelter. Is the end near? I can only imagine the people who survived may feel this way. Not only is everything destroyed, but their friends and relatives may betray them simply to be able to eat.
These are the trials of life, although maybe not as destructive as a storm. Big or small, we all face loss, grief and betrayal. Rather than declare “the end is near” during those times, we rely on God’s words and wisdom to help us face the challenges in our lives.
- When do you experience troubled times?
- During those times, do you imagine the life you know and love is over?
- What are your favorite healing words from God?
- What words of wisdom restore you when all has been stripped from your life?
I always look forward to seeing you. Rebecca
