An election has just finished in Canada, the British government can’t agree whether to leave the EU and our Northern Irish government refuse to work together. Despite the confusion in the British parliament a bill to allow Abortion in Northern Ireland was passed. It became law on Tuesday because our assembly in Stormont continue to disagree.
Whether you live in Canada or live in Northern Ireland we cannot depend on our politicians to pass right laws. My only hope is in the name of The Lord. His government and its peace will never end. Isaiah 9 v 7.
Isaiah prophesied in the same chapter that Unto us a child is born, Unto us a son is given and The Government will be on his shoulders.
Many people are dismayed and fearful at this time. Isaiah was as well. God told him not to believe conspiracies, but to make The Lord of Heaven’s Armies holy in his life. He is the one to fear and he will keep him safe.
The same is true for us today. I believe in God. He is faithful to His promises. He loves those He created. He is merciful. I know his faithfulness and love. He has cared for me and blessed me with a good husband and fourteen children. He delivered and healed me from 4 th stage cancer. He is alive and true. He is the One to fear.
If you are upset and disappointed in life today, put your trust in the God of the Heavenly armies. His name is Jesus. Call to him. He will hear and act.
Today the British Isles awoke to what someone would describe as an earthquake. The British public voted to leave the EU. Many people are concerned for their future livelihoods.
Psalm 2 says,
“Why are the nations so angry? Why do they waste their time with futile plans?
But the one who rules in heaven laughs. The Lord scoffs at them.
Now then, you kings, act wisely! Be warned, you rulers of the earth! Serve the LORD with reverent fear, and rejoice with trembling.”
Psalms 2:1, 4, 10-11 NLT
In Psalm 11 David decides not to run away in fear when faced with overwhelming situation.
“In the Lord I take refuge. How then can you say to me: “Flee like a bird to your mountain.
When the foundations are being destroyed, what can the righteous do?” The Lord is in his holy temple; the Lord is on his heavenly throne. He observes everyone on earth; his eyes examine them.”
Psalm 11:1, 3-4 NIV
Like, David of old who fought many battles and won them because his God helped him, let us trust in God. Let us thank and praise him for who he is and for what he has done for you. Do not give way to despair and fear. Do not rebel. Instead we are to pray for those in leadership so we can live in peace.
Like an old chorus that goes, the name of The Lord, is a strong tower, the righteous run into it and they are safe. I will not run away to the mountains.
