I believe, there are many in Christian-dom and [elsewhere] who under-estimate the power of God and what He is capable of doing in terms of Him delivering us from the difficulties that we face in these last days.
The world is in turmoil, we can all agree on that. There is chaos and confusion everywhere. Souls are dying by the minute.
It’s unprecedented that during the week of July 17th to 25th, three aircraft tragically plummeted from the sky with almost 500 hundreds lives lost and many families, friends and loved ones left to grieve as investigators continue to put the pieces together and try to make sense of the tragic events and establish who is responsible.
Russia and Ukraine continue to butt head to head. The British and U.S. Diplomats evacuated out of Libya this past weekend and are now ‘safely’ in Tunisia as militia fighting continue to rage in Libya.
Who can overlook heartless war criminals such as ISIS whose oppressive rule is riddled with hate not only to establish an Islamic State in Iraq and impose the Sharia Law in towns that it control but to kill and shed the blood of innocent, many of whom are Christians.
The UN Security Council’s call for “an immediate and unconditional cease-fire” in the Gaza Strip, along with “the delivery of urgently needed assistance” to residents of the conflict-riven coastal territory has seemingly fallen on deaf ears even now with the latest report that “Israeli airstrikes have hit the compound of Gaza City’s main hospital, causing casualties.”
We are tempted to ask the question, where is God when we need Him the most? Does Jesus care about the suffering of humanity? Why is God allowing the enemy to rain terror on the lives of His people?
The answer to these questions came through this word from the prophet Jeremiah 32:27 which says, “Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh. Is there anything too hard for me?” The short answer is, no. There is absolutely nothing too hard for God to do!
This is a season of great trial and testing of our faith saints of God. The level at which our faith is tested is nothing that I personally have ever seen or heard of in my lifetime.
But you and I can find comfort in knowing that God keeps His covenant with His people. He is a promise keeper who never fails to deliver on what He promised. The day will come when He will put an end to all the suffering.
He will wipe every tear from their [your] eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” ~ Revelation 21:4
Everything is for a time and a season. Let us continue to pray steadfastly in hope and have faith in God!
