"This means, He sees my yesterday, today, and all of my tomorrows, with the same clarity as you see this post. This means that He knows that what I want today, may not be beneficial for my tomorrow."
Moment of Truth: There are a few issues that cause people to become hesitant in their decision to become a follower of Jesus Christ. They question their ability to “measure up” (which isn’t a real thing by the way), they question their need for “church and religion” (which we will definitely have to unpack soon), and most of all, they question the reliability of the Bible and the existence of God.
"Matthew 7:18-20 says, “(18) A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit… (20) Therefore by their fruits you will know them.”(NKJV). In other words, The Word challenges us to never judge people without merit."
Fact: there are few things in the world that make me as weary as the current state of American politics.
Now, as I say that, it’s important for you to consider who I am and how the American governmental scene has impacted me personally. I am a 38-year-old, black citizen of the US. As a citizen, I have seen a host of disappointments within our government. Everything from the mishandling of several gunned-down black and brown citizens by law-enforcement; the many sentencing inconsistencies within our judicial system for like crimes across the racial divide; the dilapidation of schools in poor neighborhoods versus the opposite, and the professed defense of ‘WHY’ the confederate flag should still fly over any building funded by tax payer dollars in the Lord’s year of 2019.
"However, I loved the dispatcher, because they knew how to navigate through the panic, and get right to the problem. In other words, while you’re screaming, they’re solving."
"Many have asked me, “Kevin, what’s the purpose of fasting?” Or, “exactly why are you fasting?” Or (my favorite), “what are we supposed to get out of it?”
God told me in His Word that “…My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways," declares the LORD.” (cf. Isaiah 55:18 / NIV)
Fact, you may be delayed, but you’re still on His docket. He loves you and He hasn’t forgotten you.
