I AM AN 80 YEAR OLD MALE, BORN AGAIN, CHRISTIAN WITH A LOVE FOR JESUS. I DO NOT GET OUT MUCH ANYMORE BUT FIND THAT TELLING PEOPLE ABOUT THE LOVE JESUS HAS FOR THEM IS NOT ONLY WHAT WE ARE SUPPOSED TO DO BUT SOMETHING THAT THE WORLD NEEDS.

"IS YOUR HEART TROUBLED?" BY DAVID MCMILLEN
IS YOUR HEART TROUBLED?
ARE YOU STRESSED ABOUT WHAT IS HAPPENING IN AMERICA? THE GOOD THING IS WE CAN DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. IF WE CHRISTIANS WOULD BAND TOGETHER AND PRAY AND DID WHAT WE NEED TO DO AS IS COMMANDED IN THE BIBLE, GOD WILL HEAL OUR LAND.
LET'S TALK ABOUT REAL STRESS. JESUS' DISCIPLES DIDN'T KNOW WHAT THEY WERE GOING TO DO BECAUSE IT SEEMED THAT ALL WAS LOST AND THEY COULD DO NOTHING ABOUT IT. THEY HAD WATCHED JESUS BEING ARRESTED, BEATEN, AND CRUCIFIED. ALL OF THEIR HOPES AND DREAMS WERE ROOTED IN HIM AND THEN HE WAS DEAD AND SEEMINGLY DEFEATED.
EVEN THOUGH JESUS HAD TOLD THEM WHAT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN TO HIM...THAT HE WOULD BE CRUCIFIED, BURIED, AND WOULD RISE ON THE THIRD DAY, THEY UNDERSTOOD NONE OF THIS. LOOK WHAT IT SAYS IN
LUKE 18:31-34 Then he took unto him the twelve, and said unto them, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem, and all things that are written by the prophets concerning the Son of man shall be accomplished.
For he shall be delivered unto the Gentiles, and shall be mocked, and spitefully entreated, and spitted on: And they shall scourge him , and put him to death: and the third day he shall rise again. And they understood none of these things: and this saying was hid from them, neither knew they the things which were spoken.
NOW, DO YOU THINK THEY WERE STRESSED? THE CONFUSION, HURT, AND PAIN FROM THAT ALONE WAS PROBABLY UNBEARABLE BUT THEN CAME THE THOUGHTS. "WE HAVE MADE SUCH SACRIFICES, LEAVING FAMILY AND BUSINESSES AND RISKING IT ALL ON THE BELIEF THAT JESUS WAS THE MESSIAH." "MIGHT IT ALL HAVE BEEN IN VAIN?" "HOW LONG WILL IT BE BEFORE THEY COME AND GET US?" YES, I THINK THEY WERE VERY STRESSED. DO YOU THINK THIS COMPARES TO OUR STRESS?
HE WAS ALWAYS THINKING ABOUT THEM THOUGH AND LOVING THEM. LOOK WHAT HE TOLD THEM THE NIGHT BEFORE HIS CRUCIFIXION. (JOHN 14:1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.) HE KNEW WHAT THEY WOULD THINK AND WAS TRYING TO COMFORT THEM.
WHEN CRISIS COMES, AND IT WILL, DO WHAT JESUS SAYS TO DO. DON'T DWELL ON THE BAD BUT LOOK TOWARD JESUS. HE IS OUR ANSWER. HE HAS NOT BROUGHT YOU THIS FAR TO DROP US NOW. HE CAN TURN ANYTHING BAD INTO SOMETHING GOOD. IT IS BETTER IF WE TALK TO HIM FIRST ABOUT WHAT WE ARE GOING TO DO AND ASK HIM ABOUT IT. TRUST HIM...HE LOVES US MORE THAN WE CAN EVER IMAGINE AND HE CAN TAKE ALL OUR STRESS AWAY.
I WILL SAY ONE MORE THING ABOUT THIS. EVEN THOUGH JESUS LOVES US AND WANTS THE BEST THINGS FOR US, I BELIEVE HE WANTS US TO STAND UP FOR WHAT IS RIGHT AND BOLDLY PREACH AGAINST THOSE SET ON GOING AGAINST HIM. WE KNOW WHAT HE SAYS IN HIS WORD.
THE DEMOCRATS ARE SO SET ON GOING AGAINST HIS WILL, ESPECIALLY WITH THE ABORTION CLINICS KILLING ALL THOSE BABIES. WE CHRISTIANS SHOULD MAKE SURE THAT THEY DO NOT GET IN OFFICE AND CONTINUE WHAT THEY ARE SO SET ON DOING. PLEASE GET OUT AND VOTE FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP IF HE RUNS AGAIN AND CONTINUE TO PRAY FOR HIM. I SINCERELY BELIEVE IN MY HEART THAT HE WAS SENT BY GOD FOR THIS TIME IN OUR HISTORY TO BRING AMERICA BACK TO BEING A NATION UNDER GOD.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
