We seem to have a need to depart from this plain called earth. We continually pray for death, yet when we truly think He will take us, a fear courses through our veins.
Be careful what you pray for! For your words grow weary upon the ears of our Master.
Death – oh how we cherish the pain. The thought of how no suffering, no tears, no heartache. But, instead of looking for release from a world filled with sin and evil, why not try to change it.
Instead of relishing a freedom from it, which is not always the answer, change the one you live in.
Instead of passing away and leaving pain behind, why not remove pain where able and it will not be so painful for others who are left behind upon your departure.
Your pain was handed to you from those who knew pain also. And so the story goes.
No one seems to want to stop the pain, just leave it! Leave it for others to deal with, suffer through, and want the same as you – leave it.
When others condemn, Christ stands fast. When others moan, He who is mightier than all prays.
Be as He who is on high. Give praise to everything. Rejoice in times of peril, for He is with you. Cling to Him for He shall guard and protect.
Do not subject yourself to the cruelties of evil, for you are a child of the King. By His authority you have immense power and stature. Stand tall in the face of satan and he will depart.
Let not others dictate what is to be, for He on high is the Master of all, even the lowest of lowest. He shall guide your steps so remain solidly planted on His foundation.
God, O’ Mighty God, let there be peace in all nations and all people’s. In Jesus name I ask.
“Nevertheless, God’s solid foundation stands firm, sealed with this inscription: “The Lord knows those who are His,” and “everyone who confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from wickedness.” (2Tim. 2:19)
