Title: The presence of the Lord is always with us
God promises that He will never leave us nor forsake us. (Deut.31:6 ) Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you ; He will never leave you nor forsake u. (John 16:33 )I have said these things to u , that in me u may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.
Jesus is saying here that there will be tribulations in the world which everyone will experience both believers and nonbelievers, but for us believers we should have courage because He has overcome this world. This is not a time to be afraid but a time to anchor our faith in Him standing on His promises that never fails. Also standing on the gap for our families and friends in serious prayers , we should not be complaining but use this period to reach out to the world for Christ. Let us pray for those who have not heard the gospel and also spread the word of God as the disciples of Jesus. The Bible says in (Romans 13:11 ) And that knowing the time that now it is high time to awake out of sleep : for now is our salvation nearer than the time we first believed. What is happening now is not ordinary but signs of Christ’s return. All the things we hear today and see, Jesus has prepared us that days like this will come, the signs are happening now. We have to be at alert so that , that day will not take us unawares. This is the time for us to Work harder in our Christian race., and also start reaching out to people who have not heard the gospel, we can even start with our families who are not yet saved. What we are seeing now is the beginning of what is going to take place in this perilous time. (Luke 15:7 ) says I tell you that in the same way there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent. Brethren, this is not a time to be dragging our cross, this a time to carry it so the world will see us that we are suffering for Christ. Let us continue to watch and pray. What is not important right now is how and when the coronavirus is stopping but what is important is our readiness for the rapture. We have to be concerned very seriously. The Lord will help us in Jesus name.
Prayers: God please give me a heart that desires to know you more. Let your light shine on my path oh Lord. Give me a heart that is hungry to study your word. Help me oh Lord to be a reflection of your light to the World. Help me to fulfill my purpose God my father. Every plan of the enemy concerning me let your fire consume it in Jesus name I pray. Amen. 🙏🏼🙏🏼
