We have a lot of concerns facing us. They are serious. We have Russia eying Ukraine. China is rattling its sabers at Taiwan. Iran is making progress on the bomb. Our children are being brainwashed by Communists controlling our public schools and universities. Young people are being injected with chemicals of dubious value and definite danger. The administrative state is expanding. How long do you want me to go on.
I find that I am not overly worried. The potential for disaster is real. I am not going ostrich, I am going Providential.
I start every day with the character of God; I praise. There are many expressions in the Bible about what God is like. Such words as faithful, merciful, patient, and attributes like power and knowledge. Of course those are balanced with wrath, jealousy, justice. Tying it all together is the concept of holiness.
Holiness is a characteristic we can walk all around, talk about forever, define until the cows come home and we still are far from total understanding. God’s holiness is so powerful that it would burn out all our circuits if we get too close. Picture how looking at the sun too long bleaches the rods and cones in your eyes and consider it dim compared to His raging purity.
The first verse in the Bible tells us that God created. It is an inclusive statement that involves the heavens and the earth. In the New Testament we are told that Jesus holds everything.
Realize that He created and maintains
Neutralize the fear of the unknown by the fear of the known. God wants us to know Him. He reaches out to us through Jesus. He informs us through the Bible.
He controls the electrons.This can be a year of glorious fear. Join me.
He controls the action of the viruses
He controls the macrophage
