Is it just me and my friends? Is it just our lives that are in turmoil? Just my friends losing loved ones? Just my friends looking for new jobs? Tempers short in just my office, my home, my church and my school? Never enough money in just my office, my home, my church and my school? Road construction on just the roads I want to drive on? Everywhere I look recently, it seems I see the devil prowling like a lion, seeking for someone to devour. And it seems to be most everyone I know.
I say this only to encourage you. I’ll be 54 in a few weeks, with more gray hair in the mirror every morning. My experience, though not as vast as some I know, tells me something amazing is just over the horizon. The devil wants to keep us down, wants us to give up before the blessing arises tomorrow.
Peter, the same writer who warned us of the lion, also tells us “humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time, casting all your anxiety upon Him, because He cares for you.
Hang on. The dawn of blessing is just over the horizon.
For 88.3 The Journey, I’m General Manager Mike Agee.
