Times in Which We Live

In the uncertain times in which we are living, God wants us to live as people of faith. In a world that is shaking, we stand upon His unshakeable Kingdom; amidst fear, we have peace beyond understanding; amidst sorrow, we have joy unspeakable; amidst trouble, we have every comfort and consolation; amidst uncertainty, we have the blessed hope.

The Bible reminds us to:

  • Be watchful
  • Be peaceful
  • Be prayerful
  • Be sober
  • Be ready

The Bible reminds us not to:

  • Be fearful
  • Be deceived
  • Be troubled
  • Be spiritually asleep
  • Be weighed down with cares

Always be full of joy in the Lord. I say it again—rejoice! Let everyone see that you are considerate in all you do. Remember, the Lord is coming soon. Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.  Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:4-7 (NLT)
