"This is the day that the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it." – Psalm 118:24
Amidst these turbulent times in our nation and in our lives, God showed me that I need to have the will, or in other words to choose, to rejoice in the fact that God is in control and He is the one who has made this day in which I live. God always was, is now, and ever more will always be in control! I make it my will (I choose) to rejoice and be glad in it! We are to be lighthouses in the dense fog of our day. Just as millions of gallons of oil and gas are polluting the waters in the gulf, the world of unbelievers are pouring out millions of "gallons" of spiritual pollutants across our Lord’s planet. Pollutants of sin, corruption, lies and deceit. Yet for those who are despairing and searching for hope, we are the lighthouses that can be found with the hope of salvation! We as believers need to remember who we are and trust in The Hope of Glory. If we let the world system get us down and sulk in despair, our lights go dim and our neighbors will not find hope in us. Let us live with passion in the hope Christ have given us, realizing our Father has and always will keep His promises! If we don’t live as if we trust Him, we cannot expect those who are observing us (we are always being observed) to trust in Him for their salvation. We are the unbeliever’s evidence of hope. Pray for all of humanity, especially for those in our sphere of influence! Let us give the lost world their only glimpse of hope!
