The Christian faith is truly amazing. For a period of 2022 years or so, many of us Christians have been a target of much discrimination, attacks, to a point of being one of the groups worldwide who are persecuted for our beliefs to a point of death. Being a follower of the way doesn’t come free from experiencing difficulties and situations in this world. In Nigeria alone, over eleven thousand christians have been killed since 2015. My God, when are you coming back to rescue the brethren?
Sure, Joshua has taught us the following in the bible, “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9. Can you grant us peace, Lord? “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans 15:13.
Brethren, we are to be humble. To live our lives in hope and without ambition, seek God’s way in humility. I don’t fear because God is with me. “For I, the LORD your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, ‘Fear not, I am the one who helps you.” Isaiah 41:13. You shouldn’t fear either because God is with you, as well.
Trust in Him, don’t lean on your own understanding and in all your ways, acknowledge Him. “Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not learn on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6. I know it is ironical even evil to imagine the former but yet… it is true and written in scripture, “In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33.
In God we will always trust. I am with Him no matter the difficulties that we may face in this life. I’m terminal with God.
