But Mom, “He could be another Hitler!…”
“Can we move to Canada?” inquires the daughter…
“We can’t run from our problems,”answers the Dad.
what do we do?
Originally, it was the people who begged for a king, because they didn’t appreciate or acknowledge that God, the King of kings, was enough. And so in the end, God conceded and gave the people a king. And throughout history, there has been, and continues to be, good rulers and bad rulers; people have been blessed and people have suffered at the hands of appointed leaders.
But one thing remains:
Is HE enough for us?
In Towdah, A Cancer Survivors Song of Hope, I asked the same question, as I wondered about my future; was I going to live or was I going to die?
You see, suffering was inevitable, and fear grew.
Just as fear is evident in my daughters words….and suffering seems inevitable.
But instead of running, my husband is right, we must stay.
We must stay and stand and endure the battle before us, in whatever form it comes.
AND, my question still begs to be answered:
Is HE enough for us?
I see a man who was mocked, and bullied, and humiliated, and whipped.
I see bruises, and lacerations, and sweat, and blood.
I see suffering: physically, mentally, and emotionally.
This man hung on a cross…
…the One afflicted, looked up!
Jesus, filled with love, looked up and loudly called to the Father saying three things:
“Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” Luke 23:34
“My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” Matthew 27:46
“Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.” Luke 23:46
I believe we must do the same.
You see…it has everything to do with TRUST.
Jesus first spoke to His father; He trusted in his Father’s plan and knew it was all for the best. He knew also, that the people were ignorant of God and had no idea of the depth of their mistaken filled actions. In the suffering, Jesus also felt the pain of separation from the Father as He bore all the sin of the world. Yet, Trust prevailed and Jesus used His last breaths to speak of total surrender; Trusting His father fully, committing His life and soul to Him.
He endured, to make salvation of our souls possible.
All who believe in Him, must be like Him.
So, I ask: Will you do the same? Will you be like Him?
Speak loudly to the Father in heaven – PRAY.
(“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14)
Have a heart of forgiveness for the ignorant folly of man….
Endure the suffering that is allowed…
Trust in God.
If you are a born again believer, now is the time to stand and pray and be like Jesus.
This is going to be a super charged election season, even still, will you stand with me and say:
He is enough!
