There have been series of events taking place around the world in recent times.
The Ethiopian airlines plane crash, the New Zealand massacre, the bombing in Sri Lanka and so many senseless killings around the world.
We are moved to remember the families left behind.
For all those mourning the loss of their loved ones, those mourning the wickedness and the evil that seem to be swallowing many in this present day, be comforted by the word of God. He said he will never leave us nor forsake us.
God is not ignorant of what you are going through right now.
Please don’t blame God for your mishap, that is what the enemy would like. satan would like to wreck havoc in people’s lives and make them blame God for his wickedness. Don’t get caught up by his wicked and evil strategy.
Believe God firmly, trust him absolutely and draw closer to God and find strength in his Holy word and your safety and deliverance is sure. He will cover you under his wings and assign his Holy Angels to watch over you and defend you.
As he said in (Ps 91: 4, 11).
“He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways”.
Take refuge in God’s unfailing love, his word and promises
“For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning”. Psalms 30:5.
Be comforted today trusting in God’s Word.
Be strengthened in your faith knowing that he cares for you.
He said in Matt 5:4. “Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted”.
The above verse is neither condoning evil nor is it rejoicing in our mourning but rather is a source of strength and comfort in case we find ourselves in that position for whatever reason, be it due to the forces of nature or due to evil occurrences from heartless people, or normal ageing, whatever the reason, we are encouraged to seek solace in God almighty through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
Some people have stopped watching the news including yours truly because of the evil circulating like wild fire every where.
Whatever the problem maybe, we know the Bible is quite plain about it all.
In Matt 24: 6-7, it said,
“And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places”.
We know, we are at the end time, everything happening around us was already prophesied and predicted in the Bible, the only problem is we are never prepared for such things.
One doesn’t just prepare for how to react when an earthquake, hurricane or death occurs.
There are so many simulation exercises but it can never be enough to get us to respond when it hits home. It might help the rescue team but not the actual victims or their relatives.
We rely absolutely on God’s Divine intervention.
Heavenly father, we present to you today, those in need of your peace that passeth all understanding. We pray for those mourning and weeping for the loss of their family members, relatives and friends, grant them your comfort and consolation in this time of trial dear Lord.
ABBA father fill them with your abundant grace, peace and joy in the midst of the storm, give them strength to move on and faith to trust you more in Jesus mighty name, we pray. Amen.
