Pray it Off

It’s easy to turn off the television, close the newspaper and disengage oneself from the troubles, tragedies and tribulations of others…

People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken. At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.” -Luke 21:26-28 NIV

Yet what is the method of detachment when friends, family members and close acquaintances begin to experience circumstances like those headlined in the media and read by thousands? Unexpected death. Health challenges. Financial woes. Prodigal children.

Pray it off.

That is what The Holy Spirit whispered to me as wrestled with the state of both the world and the lives of those around me. It is not our job to comprehend nor become sleuths to life’s unfortunate happenings, for our most chaotic moments are clearly understood by God. He’s knows the end from the beginning with the obstacles of our journeys being less than afterthoughts when compared to our final outcomes.

While on the cross, Jesus saw a vision of you living a life worth dying for, with success in all areas of life. Don’t let Satan use the trials of your life and/or other people’s lives to trick you into aborting that vision…

Until Sunday,
