During this pandemic, I have learned that the Lord is faithful. He gives us rest even in uncertainty. We will overcome this, and in Jesus Name, I look forward to what the Lord has in store for his church. Yes, we may need to have the church online as opposed to meeting in a formal setting, but didn’t the early church go to the people? If nothing else good comes of this, we have seen more people reaching beyond the four walls to the world. I could be gloom and doom; but, I choose to rejoice in the God of my salvation. He knows my name, and that’s good enough for me.
“It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High:
To show forth thy loving-kindness in the morning, and thy faithfulness every night,
Upon an instrument of ten strings, and upon the psaltery; upon the harp with a solemn sound.
For thou, Lord, has made me glad through thy work: I will triumph in the works of thy hands.
O Lord, how great are thy works! And thy thoughts are very deep” (Psalm 92:1-5).
In America, we have liberty. In Jesus, we have liberty that will set us free by the power of the Holy Ghost. He whom the son sets free is free indeed. Our world may be troubled and uncertain, but we can be established in Jesus Christ who is the same yesterday, today and forever.
My hope is built on nothing less, than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.
On Christ the solid rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand.
If we keep praying, keep believing that the Lord will deliver us and that he is a present help in the time of trouble, then we reap the victories.
“We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;
Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;”
(2 Corinthians 4:8-9).
“And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly….But God commendeth his love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us”
Romans 5:5-6, 8
I am blessed to be a part of the Pentecostals of Greenville. My thoughts tonight are tumbling through my mind and can’t be contained. I feel like we’ve been called to prayer as a nation, and we are united together with a common bond: reaching out to the lost. I will bless the Lord at all times, his praise shall continually be in my mouth. I can have peace even when the world in which I live is in chaos.
My hope is in Jesus and the things of the world are only temporal. God, on the other hand, is eternal and he loves me with an everlasting and unconditional love. God bless America.
We welcome you to celebrate another opportunity to worship the Lord, freely. It requires no building, or special place. We are blessed that we can be in his presence. I am thankful that we have hope in him.
In this week’s Lattereign, we are reminded that There’s Nothing too hard for God (click on the link and it will open in a new window).
