“He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.” Psalms 91:1 KJV
God expects you to grow. To grow means to be balanced, matured and increase by natural development. There is no doubt that we are living in very tough times. Only mature Christians can be tough enough to face the challenges of our days. As a child of God, therefore, it is time for you to brace up and get serious with your Christian experience. Understand that the answer lies with God and every other thing is sinking sand; you can’t depend on them.
If you take a look at the state of the world today, you will see the degradation and evil in the land. What God is saying is that the church should take her place as the light of the world and the salt of the earth- that is who you are. You don’t have to be begged to live for God. You shouldn’t be coaxed or forced to be a Christian or to represent the kingdom. It is getting clearer and clearer by the day that there is no hiding place except in the Cross. No wonder, a songwriter wrote: “On Christ the solid rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand. Our hope is built on nothing else than Jesus blood and righteousness”.
I feel sorry for those who don’t have a relationship with the Father because I don’t know how they are going to survive without a solid relationship with Jesus Christ. How will you make it through life in these times of uncertainties? The roads are not safe. The shopping malls are not safe. Every time we hear news of disaster in various nations of the world. But if you are well connected to Him, you are safe, secure and you will find rest in the shadow of His wings. You will find peace and satisfaction in Him. I challenge you to push back all forms of distractions today and take your safe place under the shadow of His wings. Surely, it is well with you.
