The Lord has given me a strong warning not to think like everyone else does. He said,
“Don’t call everything a conspiracy, like they do,
and don’t live in dread of what frightens them.
Make the Lord of Heaven’s Armies holy in your life.
He is the one you should fear.
He is the one who should make you tremble.
Boy are these words pertinent for today! Whether it is the virus, the election, the economy, or anything else, these words are for us. We don't think like everyone else. We don't buy into conspiracies. We trust God to sort out truth from error. Our confidence is in Him.
We don't run around like Chicken Little announcing the sky is falling because we rest in God's sovereign grace and mercy. The Lord is with us. He is our shield and our fortress. While the world panics we rest in His peace. As long as we remain focused on Him, the world will not defeat us.
Don't fret. Trust.
