Enough!

Bad news bombarding the airwaves. Social media. Advertising. Covid. Flu. People dying. Arguments over what’s right or wrong. Wars and rumors of war. Economic concerns. Fear grips every level of society.

Have you ever just wanted to scream, “ENOUGH”?

Life can be overwhelming. But God. . .

He says, “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
Matthew 11:28-30 NASB

The victory is in Jesus!!

These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.”
John 16:33 NASB

So what can we do to hush the noise of the world and trust God in the mayhem? Go to prayer:

But you, when you pray, go into your inner room, close your door and pray to your Father who is in secret, and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you.
Matthew 6:6 NASB

AND

“Cease striving (Be still) and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”
Psalms 46:10 NASB

Repentance to Endurance

and saying, “Through many tribulations we must enter the kingdom of God.”
Acts 14:22b NASB

in much endurance, in afflictions, in hardships, in distresses, in beatings, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labors, in sleeplessness, in hunger, in purity, in knowledge, in patience, in kindness, in the Holy Spirit, in genuine love, in the word of truth, in the power of God; by the weapons of righteousness for the right hand and the left, by glory and dishonor, by evil report and good report; regarded as deceivers and yet true; as unknown yet well-known, as dying yet behold, we live; as punished yet not put to death, as sorrowful yet always rejoicing, as poor yet making many rich, as having nothing yet possessing all things.
2 Corinthians 6:4b-‬10 NASB

In Christ is life no matter the circumstances. Jesus suffered for the sake of the gospel to the glory of the Father. If we are to follow in His footsteps, being transformed into His image by obedience to His commands, then we should expect and face tribulations, trials, hardships,  etc. with endurance.

🌹 Let us endure through all tribulation, in the power of God and in the Holy Spirit, by the word of truth on our journey for and toward the kingdom of God.

Continually Seeking Him,
