Happy Wednesday! It’s a great day to be alive, isn’t it? (Anybody else feel like busting out in the old Travis Tritt song? No? Okay. I’ll refrain…) II Thessalonians is on tap this week. You ready? I sure am. Next Wednesday we go into I Timothy. Share in the comments what touched you out of Thessalonians. We all love hearing from you!
II Thessalonians 3:3a (NIV)–But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen and protect you from the evil one.
AMEN! As the world grows increasingly depraved (And it does, doesn’t it? I was actually disgusted by prime time TV on Monday night), as we draw nearer to the end, as evil seems to be gaining the upper hand, isn’t it good to know, good to be reminded that evil can never win? No matter what, God is still in charge. He will always be bigger.
And He will always protect us. Always. It might seem like life is going to crush us and all of the bad is going to cut us right in two, but it won’t. It can’t. God won’t allow it. (Hear that? He won’t allow it. Let that sink in!) No matter what happens on this earth, we ultimately have heaven waiting, and in heaven, Christ has given us the ultimate victory, the ultimate life.
It’s easy to get focused on what we see and to forget about what we can’t see. It’s easy to see defeat in this world as defeat forever, but there is only an epic, eternal win for us in Christ. He guards us, the apple of His eye. I needed to hear that today, needed to be reminded that my God is always on my side and always watches over me, no matter how crazy the world gets.
It’s a great day to be alive. Get out and enjoy it! 🙂
