It’s Time to Come to Christ

Trump wins the Presidency here in America, Ok now pause and take a breath. Many are confused, perplexed, and down right angry but I say do not be afraid. We are not a people without hope. We can still stand in the face of fear and use our voices to denounce any policy that is seemingly absurd and distasteful. We can still stand shoulder to shoulder and March and lift our voices and be heard, this is still a democracy and unlike many nations “We Can” make a difference.

Countless are afraid because they perpetually put their hopes in politicians, and this is erroneous. Remain hopeful and allow no one to usurp your God given hope and rights. Exhale and stand tall. Neither Hilliary or Trump are able to truly save, the Bible declares “Do not put your trust in princes, in human beings, who cannot save” (Psalm 146:3) Hope in God alone, because it is He alone who truly has the power to save your soul. God bless you and be well, in the name of Jesus Christ Amen and Amen.

 

What are You Praying?

The text was 1 Chronicles 4:9-10, in the middle of all those genealogies. This is the first and last time we ever hear of Jabez. He is a virtual nobody in Biblical history. But if you were going to get only a two-verse biography, what would you want written of you? Let it be this.

“Jabez was more honorable than his brothers, and his mother named him Jabez saying, “Because I bore him with pain.” Now Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, “Oh that You would bless me indeed and enlarge my border, and that Your hand might be with me, and that You would keep me from harm that it may not pain me!” And God granted him what he requested”.
