There are so many real horrors in this world – barbarism, Nazism, terrorism, hatred, killing, sexual perversions…you name it – the broken, “post-Adam” mankind has done it! But I want you to think on this…for all the horrors and sin, God still found us worth dying for.
To us, the world is often rotten and unfair. Remember, though, Jesus offered no immunity to horrors and unfairness – only a way through it. The cross overcame evil, not the horrors and unfairness of it.
God loves us, He wants to bless us, but He’s not stupid. He won’t pour His blessings into a bucket with holes in it. He has set some standards for living and He encourages us to learn them and follow them. There are ample examples in the Scriptures of His many blessings being poured out onto those who obey Him. Plug up those holes in your bucket by obeying Him, worshipping Him, praising Him.
Don’t get me wrong now, having trials and troubles doesn’t mean you’re off God’s list…they are either allowed or actually constructed by God to change you and strengthen you. It’s not easy, but with Him, it’s doable.
God has abundant blessings for His people. Join with Him, obey Him and be mightily blessed!
