Proverbs 14:12 There is a way which seems right to a man,
but its end is the way of death.
Isaiah 55:8-9 For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,” declares the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.
The most frustrating thing about our government right now is the obviously stupid decisions that are being made. They are stupid because they are so contrary or opposite God’s way of doing things. In fact they are so obvious that it appears that our leaders are simply rebelling against God, purposely doing everything contrary to His laws. Of course, they are not; most of our leaders have zero understanding of God’s ways or his laws. But even done in ignorance the results are the same, you break God’s laws and judgment follows. We are living in a country and in a time when Almighty God is going to pour out His great wrath down on our country, and the scary thing is we are living in it.
So how do we then live our lives in the midst of this coming storm. We follow God’s principles and laws as individuals, families, and churches. We want as much as possible to live our life so as to be a stark contrast to the world. Those outside God’s family will become very anxious about life as God’s judgment comes and we will be a lighthouse for them.
God will provide all the strength we need to live life victorious during these days. He will also give us the joy the world is so desperately seeking in all the wrong places and ways. And He will give us a peace that is beyond all comprehension that will guard our hearts and our minds as we set our thoughts on God.
