If God is all you have...then...

Honestly, I never thought I'd see come to pass what I'm seeing in my lifetime. I'm still amazed that Kim Davis is in jail. I commend her for standing up for what she believes. How many of us would have crumbled under the pressure and did what our job required? How many of us would have sought out another job? How many of us would have complied with the world's demands and quietly given in while our hearts broke and our conscience was seared?

We've sat back and allowed the enemy to steal from us. We've bickered among ourselves about doctrine and allowed prayer to be removed from our schools. We've argued over the color of the new carpeting in the sanctuary while our kids are popping strange pills at parties and researching how to become terrorists on the internet. We've been robbed, friends, and it's our own fault. We've lived in a little bubble where all we've cared about is that our own needs are met while the world has gone to hell around us and passed laws that are more anti-Christian every year.

We are living in perilous times, but those who have God, have all they need. He owns the cattle on a thousand hills! He created this world and everything in it! We are called by His name...He knows those who are His and he has the power to take care of us. He is our refuge and fortress, our high tower, our shield and our buckler. He is the Prince of Peace and the King of Kings! He is the One who was and is and is to come and will evermore be! God knows the beginning and he knows the end and guess who wins in the end? We're on the winning team. Look up, my friend, your redemption draweth neigh!
