Perfect Peace


It Is Written, Isaiah 26:3, you will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.
I guess it isn't exactly rocket science to say that the world is a mess.  Every day, we hear about some kind of a major problem.  The sad part is, it seems to be getting worse.
Whether you talk about the economy, global warming, political unrest, drugs, or any other topic in the news, you don't know who or what to believe.  News sources put their spin on everything.  They prefer all the bad news because that is what sells.
People live in fear of growing violence everywhere.  The majority of political leaders are not to be trusted because they don't know what truth is, and do not recognize or do much to curb the violence.
Many people blame God for the ills of the world, but He is not the problem. satan is calling the shots for most people.  Man has a free will to make choices.  If those choices turn out bad, who is at fault?  God does not force people to follow Him.
There are people in this world who have peace in their hearts no matter what the news says.  These people focus on Jesus and what He did, and still does.  When you trust in Jesus completely, you have nothing to fear.
The Word of God foretells everything.  If you read the Word and look at what is going on in this world, you will realize it was all fortold thousands of years ago.  It tells the story up to and including the second coming of Christ.
Just as with watching a rerun of your favorite sports team, because you know the outcome you don't worry about it.  Well my friends the Word of God is the only truth, and it tells the whole story, so if you believe it, you know we win.
One last thing.  Why does God allow all of this mayhem?  The answer is simple.  Every man has a choice where he will spend eternity.  He has a choice right to the end.  When Jesus comes it will be too late to change your mind, so you have to make up your mind whether you want to live in peace with Jesus, or live in fear with satan.  Have a blessed day.
Praise the Lord!
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation
Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me.  Your blood washed away all my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought me salvation.  Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior.
Thank You Lord
Amen
