Thought for the Week
Be strong and of good courage and do it, fear not, nor be dismayed: for the Lord God, even my God will be with thee, and he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee until thou hast finished all the work for the service of the house of God.--1 Chronicles 28:20
These are the beautiful words of a charge David gives to Solomon concerning building the temple. The thought echoes within my heart that so long as we faithfully serve our God he will be with us, he will not fail us nor forsake us until the day we finish this earthly journey and go home to God's celestial shore to live forever with him.
Today we must be of good courage, not be dismayed or disheartened even though we are surrounded with so much corruption of God's word which has resulted in some of the most evil and wicked practices ever known to mankind (Romans 1:21-32; 2 Tim. 3:1-5). The truths of God's word are either being disregarded or twisted into some kind of perversion to allow people to say and do whatever they want.
Truly these are perilous times in which we live (2 Tim. 3:1-5; Rom. 1:18-32).Even though our hearts are saddened as we behold the anger, evil speaking, corruption and unbelievable immorality surround us each day, we can and must be strong and of good courage because as children of God we have help from the divine to sustain and keep us safe as we journey through this life (Psa. 46:1-3; Psa. 121:1-8). Our God is our refuge, strength, and help because he loves us and will never forsake us (Rom. 8:35-39; Heb. 13:7; Heb. 4:16).
Should we be concerned about the wickedness that surrounds us? Yes, but we should not be consumed with anxiousness and worry because we have help from the divine that brings to us a peace that passes all understanding (Phil 4:6-7).
