With all the turmoil happening in the world today, it is very difficult to look beyond the earthly, physical realm. The news of so many disruptive and troubling events can hold us captive, dragging us into the foaming, fearful confusion.
It is understandable to be troubled and discouraged by the current events in the world. So much of what happens seems to indicate that conditions are beyond repair!
But for ‘Thirsty Souls’ — those who call on the name of Yahuwah Elohim [the LORD God], let us remember our focus:
Yahuwah [the LORD] on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, yea, than the mighty waves of the sea. (Psalms 93:4)
The heavenly Father is mightier than the rushing, turbulent noises of this world!
Yahuwah’s over-riding plans and eternal purposes will prevail. He will see us, His elect, through to the End.
We are the unseen ones in the earth. The world does not understand us, nor see us.
Because the ungodly, the unrighteous cannot comprehend the invisible Almighty God, Creator of heaven and earth, Yahuwah Elohim [the Hebrew name for the LORD God].
But we see Him! And we see His Son, Yahushua Messiah [Jesus Christ]! He is the Righteousness of God! He is the Saviour of the whole world, who is crowned with glory and honour (Hebrews 2:9; 1John 2:2)!
We love Him, we worship Him, we follow Him. He is as real to us as the morning light, as the billowing clouds, as the wind and waves of the oceans, as the quietness of freshly fallen snow.
And when our earthly house of this body is dissolved, then we will have a spiritual house, a building not made with hands. We will have an inheritance that is incorruptible, undefiled, and that fades not away, reserved for us in heaven (1Corinthians 15:44; 1Peter 1:4).
Our lifetime here is a journey into a land of unknowables. The journey may seem long and unbearable, at times.
But soon — like the breath of the wind, like a vapour that vanishes away — in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye — we will be resurrected! Then we will fly away into the secure and ever-lasting arms of our Saviour, to abide with Him forever, in the realm where God Himself dwells (James 4:14; 1Corinthians 15:52).
All that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passes away, and the lust thereof: but . . . he that does the will of God abides for ever. (1John 2:16-17)
Let us remember . . . Yahuwah is mightier than the noise of many peoples and turmoils! His purposes will ultimately prevail!
Keep your eyes on Him, determine to do what is pleasing to Him, being watchful in prayer and obedience.
And when Messiah, who is our life, shall appear, then we shall also appear with Him, in glory (Colossians 3:4).
