My guy and I were talking today about where our country seems to be headed....you have probably had a few conversations about the same topic lately. If you have spent any time reading the newspaper, or watching the news....you may have had a rise in your blood pressure! (ha ha!) No.....really!!
Seriously....it is enough to cause worry if you're not careful. That is why I am so thankful for the timeliness of the Word of God. Psalm 16:8 says, "I keep my eyes always on the Lord. With Him on my right hand, I will not be shaken." You know it might not be easy in today's world to keep our eyes on the Lord, but we can't forget that He is where we find our hope! In Him we have perfect peace! I am so thankful for that!!
It is so important to renew your mind in the Word of God. If all we feed ourselves with is the bad news that is everywhere, we will find ourselves worried and concerned about it....but if we spend time reminding ourselves that our hope and trust must be placed in Jesus Christ, then we will have a peace that no one can understand.
It is hard sometimes to not be a worrier. The cares of this world and the trials of life can seem to overtake us, but you can give that worry and concern to God and He will replace it with peace and joy. That can only happen as you fill the space that worry and concern had in your life with the promises contained in the Bible. You see, I don't see our world doing a 180 any time soon.....so....what we have to do is keep a proper perspective. We can't let the worry and concern we may feel overtake us, but instead we must overcome it by the Word of God!
So, do yourself a favor and spend some time in the Bible today!
