Confident of This

"A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. You will only look with your eyes and see the recompense of the wicked." Psalm 91:7-8

There is a great deal of unrest in the United States of America right now, as well as other parts of the world.

It grieves me.  Does it grieve you?

The Holy Bible tells us that it grieves God.

He is grieved when we rebel, when we disobey, when our hearts are hard (Psalm 78:40; Isaiah 63:10; Mark 3:5).  Genesis 6:6 gives the account of how the Lord felt about man's disobedience in Noah's day, "And the Lord regretted that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him to his heart."

In talking with people about their need for the Lord, about our country's need to return to Him, I am surprised that many still reject Him and respond with, "Why do I need God when I do more good than most of the people in the Church?"  People who say this are missing the point.

The point is that we all need Jesus.  

The Holy Bible tells us that all have sinned (Romans 3:23), and no one is good except God alone (Mark 10:18; Luke 18:19).  It says that all of our good deeds are like a dirty garment, and that our iniquities, like the wind, take us away (Isaiah 64:6).

Jesus is the way back.  Following Him as Savior is real life, real joy.  It is the only way to experience real life, real joy.

With all of the unrest around us, I am still confident in the triune God.  He will make all things right as He has so many times before.

Psalm 27:13 tells us, "I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living."  

Won't you join me there?

Goodnight, Runners.
