Borrowed Truths

Continuous Comfort

You have to be able to get away from it every once in a while, even if its only for a few minutes, if not, there is a good chance that it will consume you. “Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.” (Psalm 46:10)

A lot of people look for comfort in troubling times in the company of those they know and love, and that is a good thing, but inevitably the conversation will turn to the troubles that the world is facing, and that is not getting away from it. It does help of course to speak with others, but in times such as these, it generally leads to more unanswerable questions, and therefore even more concerns and worries. “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.” (Phil. 4:6)

I believe that most people attempt to hide in the internet, so to speak, watching the proverbial cat video, but then gravitating back to those woes that are so prevalent, looking for answers where there are none, hoping to find the next clue that will lead this world out of what it is experiencing and back to the “normal” life they led before. “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.” (Jer. 29:11)

Happiness, the happiness that the world offers is becoming more and more difficult to find for them, if it was fleeting before, it has now become almost so elusive as to be non-existent.  “These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.” (John 15:11) Every television channel, every news broadcast, nearly every YouTube channel is not constantly, but on a regular basis reminding us of the travails of the planet, of how mankind is at a tipping point, and none offer a way out, only suggestions of hope, only glimpses of the chance for survival. “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.” (Prov. 3:5)

Doom and gloom, fires and floods, protests and rebellion, what little hope they have to hold onto is broken a little more each day, their trust in the ability of mankind to find a way-out wanes with each passing week, they see little hope for not only themselves, but for all of mankind. “For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth.” (Job 19:25)

Truth is not just elusive, but seems to have disappeared completely, few can be trusted, every station, every social media outlet seems to have its own version of just what the truth is, and each of them speak with such self-confidence that it is easy to be deceived, and many are being deceived. “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:32) Many are searching high and low, those that attend works-based churches are told to pray more, to do even more works, to adhere more closely to the church’s traditions, to have faith. While those in many so-called Evangelical churches do almost the same thing, attempting to take the congregation’s minds off of the subject with entertainment, with religious tenets instead of the truths of the Scriptures of these days we find ourselves in. “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” (Matt. 11:28)

Find your rest in Christ my friends, trust in His Sovereignty, trust in the knowledge that we are safe, we always will be. Let the world worry, our path is sure, it has been laid out for us by the Creator of the universe, take comfort in Him. “My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand.” (John 10:29)
