Advent Unfolding – Day 5




 Week 1 – Revelation

Day 5 – Uncertainty




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. And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. Keep putting into practice all you learned and received from me—everything you heard from me and saw me doing. Then the God of peace will be with you.

                                                                     Philippians 4:6-9


This world we live in is so FULL of uncertainty – from bombings & mass shootings to political and religious debates on what is the best way to solve the issues of our world.   Debates that sometimes seem as heated as the events or issues themselves. Hearts desperately seeking answers, solutions – peace. Our focus constantly turned toward worry, fear and anger. Yet, Jesus came in human form in a time not so different from our own.

– Isaiah 9 foretold of a time when the people would be walking in darkness… but for those living in a land of deep darkness a light would dawn, that their joy would be increased and they would rejoice for a Savior would be born, He would be called Prince of Peace and to His peace there would be no end. He would establish justice and righteousness from that time and forever.

One thing I am certain of in this world filled with uncertainty is the my eyes can’t be focused on the circumstances surrounding me but they need to be focused on my Savior – and He has not left me defenseless but has given me weapons of warfare -  “We pray as we live; we live as we pray. Life will never be finer than the quality of the closet. The mercury of life will rise only by the warmth of the closet. Persistent non-praying eventually will depress life below zero." --E. M. Bounds
