That is what we are living in. We don’t know how long this will last. We don’t know if we will get infected. We don’t know if the economy will tank. What do you do with all the uncertainty? How do you deal with it? If you believe in Christ, is it ok to have some anxiety?
The truth is we don’t know all the answers. I don’t have all the answers. However, I know who does. His name is Jesus. To some He is a myth, a legend, a figment of some religious nut’s imagination. Yet the more I study His Word, the Holy Scriptures, the more I realize that His Word has pegged humanity to a tee. He knows us better than we know ourselves.
In fact I saw a meme that highlighted what the Bible says, but with a cultural reference.
We have seen how ugly society can become in a moment of national crisis. Our Asian brothers and sisters are being discriminated against. Why? Our good will goes away when we feel the end is near. We claim we wouldn’t react that way but the Bible tells us this about the human heart.
““The heart is deceitful above all things, And desperately wicked; Who can know it?”
So the question is, how is your heart?
Jesus invites us to give Him our heart. As sinful as it is and can be, only He can make it clean and pure. We are told in the scriptures that society will get worse, diseases will get worse. In fact we are told that “the love of many will grow cold.” (Matthew 24:12) This virus has given us a glimpse of that hasn’t it?
So I ask, "Is your faith in your government? In your country? In toilet paper, face masks, hand sanitizer, or stocked shelves? Or is your faith in Jesus? There are good and helpful things in this world that can bring support and comfort, but they don’t deserve our faith...that should be preserved for Christ alone." T.J. Sands
I want to be the kind of person that, no matter what society throws my way, I will respond in love. Jesus did. He was brutally abused by the people He came to save; in fact they crucified Him. Yet He loved them and loves us still. He loves you still, and He left us these words.
“Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.... Now I have told you before it happens, so that when it happens, you may believe.” (John 14:27, 29)
“My son, give me your heart, And let your eyes observe my ways.” (Proverbs 23:26)
Will you give Him your heart? I did a long time ago and its the best decision I ever made. Therefore, in this world of uncertainty I am certain He loves me. Do you have that certainty?
If you have questions don’t hesitate to ask here. Take charge of your money!
