END OF THE WORLD TODAY? OH REALLY!
Today, 21 December 2012 some have said due to the end of the Mayan
Calendar, the Earth was going to end. Predictions of being hit by
another planet or a meteor are floating around. I'm still here, but
the day is not over yet. Guess what? I am not worried and neither
should you be. These predictions are not saying Jesus is coming back
but that the Earth will be no more. Who do you trust? Do you hunker
down in an underground shelter which would do no good if the earth
explodes. My recommendation is to go about your day as you would
normally do looking to God for the source of your strength and not to
fear. What will this fear do for you anyway?
Matthew 24:36(NIV) reminds us 'No one knows the day nor the hour, not
even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.'
Many become extremely frightened and fearful. Why? What will it
accomplish? The thing to be doing is to make sure you are ready to
meet Jesus when He does return or when you are called home through
Let me leave you with Colossians 3:2(NIV) which says' Set your mind on
things above not earthly things.' Can you do that? Why not start today
to make God truly first. Do not wait till New Years to make a
resolution that you will read your Bible more and never keep it. Your
life can be much more peaceful and less fretful if you will let Him
take your concerns.
PRAYER: Lord Jesus only you know the day or hour of the end of the
world or your coming back to reign. Father we can get so caught up in
earthly worries and doomsday scenarios if we let our mind be consumed
in reading about them. Lord my plan is to trust you more and turn off
things that scare me or make me lose hope. In Jesus' name. Amen.
