Put our confidence in the Lord




2 Thessalonians 3: 3 KJV

3But the Lord is faithful, who shall establish you, and keep you from evil.

My journey has been interesting and I probably could tell you many stories.  One thing I can honestly tell you today is to put your confidence in the Lord Jesus.  People are so fickle and as you know they can and normally do disappoint you.



From my point of view I would say the best bet in life is to stay focused on the Lord Jesus and not to forget that He is there to help you and keep you from evil.

I remember we just moved to Johannesburg form the Free State, Virginia.  On our way home from work there was a huge accident.  The two guys that were racing on the high way, both of them were decapitated.  It was a gruesome sight and I felt my heart almost stopping. 

This reminded me that I must always pray from my own children, I must keep my family and friends in my prayers.  It shocked me so that I had nightmares for many nights.  Then I was reminded that the Lord is faithful, that the Lord does establish me, and that He keeps me from evil.

Prayer
Heavenly Father in times of need we run to You Lord, and when we are well and happy we forget about You.  Lord thank You for being faithful to us and thank You that we may put our confidence in You Lord Jesus.  Amen

It is for everyone the Lord our God calls to himself.” 40 Peter warned them with many other words. He begged them, “Save yourselves from the evil of today’s people!”
I say we are too caught up in our own little worlds, we believe that we are capable of so much and that when times are difficult then we call on the Lord Jesus.  When nothing happens and we do not receive answered prayers we lose hope and start looking for new ways to get out of the mess we find ourselves in.
In the International Children’s Bible we read that “change your hearts and lives and be baptized,”  the words that stood out for me is “change your hearts and lives.”  I have been thinking about these words.  Something m…
