Uncertainty and Fear
Sunday, May 05, 2013
Hey my Sparker Friends.
Live healthy each day! When things go off track, keep trying to get back to living healthy. I have had my struggles. The LORD always helps me to be determined enough to go back to living healthy. I know trouble. I have had my great share. You may be weak today from tribulation that is going on. You may be worried about what is to come. I am sharing some helpful scripture from the Bible.
Jeremiah 17:7-8 Blessed is the man (or woman) that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is. For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.
Deut. 31:6 Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD the GOD, HE it is that doth go with thee; HE will not fail thee; nor forsake thee.
II Cor. 1:3-6 Blessed be GOD, even the FATHER of our LORD JESUS CHRIST, the FATHER of mercies and the GOD of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of GOD. For as the sufferings of CHRIST abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by CHRIST. An whether we be afflicted, it is for your consolation and salvation, which is effectual in the enduring of the same sufferings which we also suffer: or whether we be comforted, it is for your consolation and salvation.
If you are a Christian, do not fear. Be strong and do what you know the LORD wants. Take care of your body. Guard you thought life. Be on guard of fleshly desires. Feed your spiritual needs. Be of help to other Christian who need it. There are great concerns for everyone's future. We must trust GOD and let GOD take care of us. When things seem threatening, cling to GOD's promises in HIS Word. Be ever prayerful each day. Listen to the HOLY SPIRIT when HE speaks to your heart. Sometimes we let the things of this world drown out HIS small still voice. It is the here and now, the everyday, that we as Christians must be mindful of how we live for the LORD. Are we faithful? How is our prayer life? How much time do we give the LORD in studying HIS Word? Are we obedient in all things? Yes even obedient in how we treat our bodies. When we disobey, when we sin, we need to recognize our sin and ask GOD for forgiveness. HE provided a scripture for us. I John 1:9 I we confess our sins, HE is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. What a loving GOD we have! We must live each day as if the LORD will be back any minute to say "Come Up Hither." We must ask ourselves, "Are we prepared to meet HIM with a clean heart and life." What are we doing to reach those that are lost?
For those who aren't Christians, realize this, you have no protection! You must face your tribulations without a merciful GOD. None of us can control life. Only our LORD GOD is in control. Those of you that are not saved you are out there at the mercy of the world and the devil who influences it. Receive CHRIST today! Listen to what CHRIST has to say, "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the LORD JESUS, and shalt believe in thine heart that GOD hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on HIM (JESUS) shall not be ashamed. If you do not have CHRIST, when you stand before HIM someday, you will be ashamed. Everlasting hell will be you eternity. Don't live another day in uncertainty alone. Don't go another day with the knowledge you only have eternal death and the torment of hell waiting for you. GOD offers eternal life and heaven for those who believe, Christ died on the cross for the sins of the world. John 3:16 For GOD so loved the world, HE gave HIS only begotten SON, that whosoever believeth in HIM should not perish, but have everlasting life. JESUS not only died, but HE arose from the grave 3 days later. HE defeated death and sin for those who will belief. JESUS ascended into Heaven and is on the right hand side of the FATHER interceding for those who belong to HIM. The LORD says in John 3:18 he (or she) that believeth on HIM is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten SON (CHRIST JESUS) of GOD. Choose Christ, today!
God bless you!
