Vintage message from December 19, 1999.
The question comes to my mind: are we, like Israel, depending on the security and the safety that our nation offers us…or are we depending on the promises in God’s Word that says that all things work together for good to those who love the Lord and are called according to His purpose? …Our future, our tomorrow, is not here yet. And the only promises that I read in God’s Word for tomorrow are that we can trust God when we put our faith in Him. Do you want to know that your tomorrow is secure? Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness. Love the Lord, and live according to the call, and then tomorrow will work together for good. It says, don’t worry about tomorrow for today has enough worries for itself…
And you know what? I find people today…putting their faith in a nation and in a government that is flawed, rather that in a God and in a relationship with that God Who gave us everything; Who gave us every reason to seek after Him and trust in Him. Rather than putting their trust and their faith in what He can do, they’re putting their trust and faith in what this nation stands for.
