Does it seem like or feel like your world is crumbling around you?
5-8Jesus began, “Watch out for doomsday deceivers. Many leaders are going to show up with forged identities claiming, ‘I’m the One.’ They will deceive a lot of people. When you hear of wars and rumored wars, keep your head and don’t panic. This is routine history, and no sign of the end. Nation will fight nation and ruler fight ruler, over and over. Earthquakes will occur in various places. There will be famines. But these things are nothing compared to what’s coming. – Mark 13:5-8 (MSG)
Put your hope and trust in God! Remember that Jesus has paid the price and your decision to follow after Him and to receive Him in your heart as your Lord and Savior has put your name in the book of life and eternity with God is yours.
Just because there is darkness in front of you doesn’t mean you shouldn’t walk through it to get to where God is calling you. If God is calling you, then don’t be afraid step out in faith and start walking towards Him. Keep your eyes on Him for He is greater than anything we will ever face. God wants to show you what He has for you, so don’t allow fear to get in the way or hold you back from your destiny. Trust God as you step forward in faith as you overcome the fear of the unknown, the fear of what might happen, the fear that God might not like what He sees, the fear of the dark, the fear of what’s on the other side of the darkness. God knows everything about you and is calling you. He knows what He is doing and loves you so much. He wants you to know more than about Him, He wants to have a relationship with you. He wants you to step into His presence. God is a god of love. He knows what He is doing. Even though there may seem like there is a hard time in front of you or some type of darkness, put your hope and trust in Him. Don’t let the enemy deceive or distract you from the facts that God has a plan for you and the pan is good. The plan gives you a hope and a future. As we stand here looking at where He is calling us don’t give up and don’t give in, step up and step through the darkness, the challenge, the struggle that is before you so that in and through it all You will enter into the presence of God and get to celebrate the incredible love and relationship with Jesus. God want to fellowship with us.
As I stand and look at what I have walked through to get where I am today. As I stand and look at what I have before me and need to walk through. I look to God for wisdom and discernment. I look to God for courage and obedience that will bring me through it. He called me to so I need to walk through.

I thank You Lord for this new day and for all that is within it. I know that You are greater and stronger than anything that will try to get in my way today. Grant me wisdom and courage to know what to be a part of and to do so that I know what to do as well as have the courage to do it. Grant me Lord not only the knowledge to know what to do, but the courage to do it. Help me to be more than a hearer of the Word, but a doer of the Word today. You know where I am at and what I am facing. Help me today Lord so that with every thought, word, and action You will receive the praise, the honor, and the glory in Jesus’ name. Amen.
