A Thought For The Day

A THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

It’s all a matter of perspective!

We are told in many sports “Keep your eye on the ball.” I think in the following scriptures Jesus tells us the same thing. Keep our eyes fastened on Him. He is our all in all. He doesn’t tell us to ignore the things around us….on the contrary, He tells us exactly what we should be looking for. But then He guides us to where our hope and heart should be. We know the end game, if indeed we have Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior and are born again. Heaven is our destiny, not here!

I encourage you to re-read the following passage and take it all in. Jesus held nothing back. It is His truth that will settle and keep us in this time and hour and we really have nothing to fear. Oh in truth, fearful things will surround us, but we do not need to be in dread or fear if we are in Him. He has got us!! No matter what we may endure…

I think we are still just at the beginning of it all. God’s timetable is different from ours…but He states that a generation will not pass from the time we see all these things taking place. Remember… He has us in the palm of His hand!

Luke 21:25-36

“And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring;  men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken.  Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.  Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.”

Then He spoke to them a parable: “Look at the fig tree, and all the trees.  When they are already budding, you see and know for yourselves that summer is now near.  So you also, when you see these things happening, know that the kingdom of God is near.  Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all things take place.  Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away.

“But take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness, and cares of this life, and that Day come on you unexpectedly.  For it will come as a snare on all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth.  Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.”
