When Things Get Hard

Matthew 11:28-30 1
“But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people. For among them are those who creep into households and capture weak women, burdened with sins and led astray by various passions, always learning and never able to arrive at a knowledge of the truth.”

Love a Boundary?

Romans 12:9-13
“Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in brotherly love; give preference to one another in honor;  not lagging behind in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; rejoicing in hope, persevering in tribulation, devoted to prayer, contributing to the needs of the saints, practicing hospitality.”

Trusting Our Shield

Jer. 17:7-8
“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose trust is the Lord. He is like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream, and does not fear when heat comes, for its leaves remain green, and is not anxious in the year of drought, for it does not cease to bear fruit.”

Securing God’s Shield

Proverbs 2:7
“He stores up sound wisdom for the upright; he is a shield to those who walk in integrity,”

Proverbs 30:5
“Every word of God proves true; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him.”

Psalm 7:10
“My shield is with God, who saves the upright in heart.”

Last week we talked about how the Lord shields us from harm and harming those closest to us.  The question is, how do we secure God’s shield? Part of it, as we discussed last week, is to seek refuge in Him when we find ourselves confused, worried or dismayed. If we want to have God’s shield around us, scripture indicates that there are also other things we need to set our hearts and minds on.

“As for God, his way is perfect: The Lord’s word is flawless; he shields all who take refuge in him.”

At times we all desire for God to be our shield. Sadly many of the students I see do not see the Lord as a refuge. Read More →
