Troubled Times (COVID-19 pandemic series)
Jesus is Our Hope!
And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on. The life is more than meat, and the body [is more] than raiment. Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls? And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit? If ye then be not able to do that thing which is least, why take ye thought for the rest?
In discussion with His disciples, Jesus gives them instruction. Based on their relationship with Him, He tells them not to worry about life. Unlike us today, we consider this life to be the most critical factor of our existence. The Light reveals to us that this life is genuinely death, and the real-life is in eternity. Matthew 10:39, lose this life for His sake to gain eternal life is like the life of the raven. The Ravens don’t plant seeds nor have barns for grain; God feeds them, aren’t we better than the birds?
Yahweh-Shalom – The LORD Is Peace, Judges 6:23-24. When your heart is content, you are at peace. There’s no man more discontent than one who is not experiencing the amazing grace of God. Only in Jesus will you find security, sufficiency, and serenity, and for this, we give You our thanks. For the presence of our Hope, who directs us to concentrate on the future, and for this, we come in oneness with praise. We decree and declare blessings of understanding upon those who “Take no pride for this life,” so that; the Glory of God may shine through the Hope of our lives. Now, for the Kingdom and Glory of God, we petition, with anointing, in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord, and Savior, Amen.
