Everything in this world is changeable. Everything goes out of style and everything comes back again. The values and morals of this world are as changeable as the swaying of the waves of the sea.
We have advanced in knowledge, and we have regressed in principles. The principle of wisdom is the fear of Jehovah, as the Word tells us, but today the one who fears Jehovah is considered ignorant.
They will call what is bad good and what is good they will call bad.
It is easier to go with the current because swimming against it requires a lot of effort.
Our tolerance will always be minimal towards men, but we are changing as to who we want to tolerate.
Before, as a teenager and young adult, I thought I knew everything better than my parents. Today I think that at that time I did not know anything, but today my children think how I thought.
Nothing in this world is constant. For that reason, there is nothing that I can hold onto. Nothing constitutes a security, because today it is and tomorrow who knows.
But God is eternal. I cannot speak of its beginning and I cannot set an end to it.
God does not change. His words, his law and his advice apply to all times because he is the only one who knows all times.
God knows everything, including the heart of man and its ups and downs. We change our way of thinking in a matter of minutes. What God says remains forever.
Do I tremble at the word of God? Is my life run based on it?
Do you ever stop to meditate on what it says there? Not only in his promises, which by God’s grace we have received. Do you meditate in prayer on the holiness of God? Do I have that reverent fear before God and his work? Do I tremble at his word?
Very little do we take the scriptures before what is convenient for us and before the appearance that we want to have before others. Every day identifying yourself as a Christian will create a bad concept about you in society. Am I willing to keep talking about the gospel? While there are missionaries laying down their lives for the gospel, do I worry about my reputation? Am I so worried about what they say about me? Or my priority is to proclaim the truths of the gospel, exalt the glory of God and be able to be an instrument so that other lives can be saved through faith.
To tremble at his word I must first know him.
It is time to go deeper, to go before God in humility, so that my purpose as Son of God may be fulfilled. God is looking for worshipers, people who love Him with all their might, and people who recognize His holiness.
Religious who only fulfill tasks that are visible, such as going to church, or serving in a ministry as a simple routine, is not going to impact the world. Those who humbly prostrate themselves before the Lord so that his’s will be done in their lives will impact the world and see themselves as servants and not as lords.
Let us pray to the Lord, and if it is necessary to be silent, so be it. Let’s just come before Him recognizing that He made us and not ourselves. May he reveal to us a little of his greatness and holiness so that our lives may be transformed for his glory.
