Let us look forward to the future!
The future, as uncertain as it may be, cannot be avoided. We must cross it as if it were a river. We must try our best to get to the other side safely.
How do we know our future is uncertain? For one, our government seems to be failing us, our economy is shaking, our churches are melting under the heat and pressure of change. Dark clouds on the horizon approaching our direction seem to be predicting a storm. Will it be mild or of cataclysmic proportions? We don't know, but we can only guess. It all depends on cloud size, except that these clouds seem quite big, dark, and approaching us fast!
Well for starters, we must prepare. If and when these clouds appear, if the storm is mild, we trust in the Lord. We must make sure we have the necessary food, water, blankets, candles, and our families gathered together and beside us in the comfort of a good book. Let us shut our windows and doors. Maybe we sing songs until it passes. Once the sun shines, we go out by the meadows and play once again.
But what if these clouds are of cataclysmic proportions? Well, then Let our comfort be in the Lord. Let the book be the Holy Bible. Let the food and water be the word of God. Let the light of the candles be the light of the holy spirit in us. Let the blanket be the presence of the Lord Jesus surrounding us with His love. Let there be songs of praise and worship to God's holy name. Let us approach His son with humility of heart and thank Him for His sacrifice upon the cross of Calvary. Let the resurrection of Yeshua, the Messiah, be the sun that rises and shines on us as He takes us to the other side safely. There we will go out by the meadow and play once again.
This year don't let Yeshua-Jesus' resurrection and Passover holiday pass by you. Instead, make it stay in your hearts by believing in His promises. Receive His peace, ponder on its awesomeness! It is a great comfort to know; His sacrifice forgives all of your sins. To know you are free to live forever with God, is the perfect way to enter into the future. Yeshua (Jesus's) salvation is our future! Step into its future with confidence! Happy Passover. Shalom!
