We live in a world where evil grows daily more and more; we see the evil in our schools, universities, in the streets, at work, everywhere, we see people who have lost humanity, it is a total lack of control, it is like the world is collapsing, and it is really collapsing. What do we do as a people of God facing this reality?
We must take the Bible and teach it to our families, take ownership and control, because this society is on the way to decline and we must preach the Bible. The psalmist could understand this and that’s why he wrote:
35 Direct me in the path of your commands,
for there I find delight.
36 Turn my heart toward your statutes
and not toward selfish gain.
37 Turn my eyes away from worthless things;
preserve my life according to your word.
We must take the Bible in hand and ask God to guide us through His Word, to help us to do God’s will, which is good and perfect. That in the midst of a society with as many calamities as this one helps us to put our eyes where we have to put them: “The will of God”.
There were men of God in the Bible who also lived in the midst of many sins, yet they stood firm in God, because their strength came from the heavens and that is the same God that we serve, which is powerful to keep us firm until the day of His coming.
Beloved brothers, may our prayer be the same as that of the psalmist, may next year be a blessing to our lives and may we draw closer and closer to God.
