Wednesday thoughts – July 29, 2020

Ours is a time of uncertainty. Will schools open? Will there be college football? When will this virus end? What is the economic impact in Mississippi? How will the church survive? Yes, ours is a time of confusion and a world of rotten politics. Truth is very scarce, and there is much fear that has been generated by around the clock news.

Is there an answer to all this confusion? 1 Corinthians 14:33 says, “For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.” And, in 2 Timothy 1:7, which says, “For God hath not given us a spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” Is there an answer for you and I who profess to be believers? Yes, in Proverbs 3:5-6 it says, “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths.”

Yes, in our state of confusion there is an answer. “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart.” You and I are to acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths. The Psalmist said it best in Psalm 55:22, “Cast thy burden upon the Lord and He shall sustain thee; He shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.”

My friend— there is that which we need to always remember. God is always certain, God is always secure, God is on the throne, and He will direct our steps even in the times of uncertainty.
