“Don’t fear those who kill the body but are not able to kill the soul, rather, fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Matthew 10:28 ~CSB
The news and social media have shown you what to be afraid of: the pandemic, the elections, riots, protesting, police brutality, they have all taken a front row seat to everyday crime and murder. Wow, what a scary thought.
It seems we live our lives waking up everyday wondering what bad news we are going to hear next. And when we hear someone tell us to go to church and pray, we find a new group of people that will bring up other religions to replace everything God has put in place for our lives. Chaos from all sides. We are allowing ‘fear’ to control everything about our way of living and thinking.
We listen to the negative in the news and social media instead of giving God His time. We try to take control over situations that are well out of our understanding instead of leaning toward our trust in the Father. God, the source, the light, Jehovah, Yahweh, the Most High, not only has control, but has already laid out the plan for our lives.
And in case anyone missed it, He sacrificed His Son for all who have sinned and fallen short of His glory. The resurrection of the Son is the victory for the Kingdom and the defeat of the devil. That means that all that is going on around us is futile compared to our eternal salvation. God did not give us a spirit of fear, but if you must err to the side of caution, then lean toward fearing the one, “…who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell…”
God is bigger than anything social media puts out. God can heal any suffering and pain caused by this world. “Don’t fear those who kill the body…” Look up to and trust the Father who, through the Son, defeated death and has given us everlasting life!
May God bless and keep you covered as you continue to walk in Jesus’ name.
