The world is full of secular garbage anymore. Deception is everywhere. Confusion is at an all time high. Everyone’s got an opinion, decisions are made on feelings rather than facts and there are no shortages of know-it-all with soapboxes. I am constantly feeling myself being drawn farther and farther away from the toxicity of the world. The prideful displays of self grandeur – a society of narcissism spinning on an axis of validation.
Be validated in Christ alone!
Three things a Christian must remember in this world, first the Bible says for us to not concern ourselves with the mess of the world. Worry, judgement, stress, gossip or murmuring and complaining are not callings of Christians. Secondly, wicked societies eventually feel the wrath of God, and thirdly God always has a remnant. It might be a few people as in Noah’s case or it might be like the 7,000 in Elijah’s case – but make no mistake God always has a remnant.
Your job as a Christian is to stay vigilant and make sure your in that remnant. Wickedness, confusion, stress & evil men they will meet with the business end of Gods wrath in his proper and perfect timing. That’s not an if or a maybe, that’s a guarantee. God is slow to anger because he has great mercy but once he pours out his wrath – it’s too late. What can you do? Pray, fast, seek Gods peace that passes understanding and lift up those that you see that need your prayers. You would be surprised at how many people DON’T have someone praying for them.
Your private prayers will change more than your public opinions.
If we prayed as much as we complained, the world would actually change. The moment you feel agitated with or by someone or something PRAY – don’t rant on Social Media – PRAY!
Today I hide in God. My secret place where I curl up and spend time with my Almighty Father, King of The World, Love of My Life, Lord of Lords, My Absolute Everything – Jesus Christ. I ask him to fix the injustice I see, only he is capable!
