Wow, I can hardly believe that we are almost another year under the books and life as we once knew it to be has changed. Life today is so different from years past, and to think this all happened "like a thief in the night", right under our nose and in front of our eyes.
This idea of how things changed so quickly doesn't catch me by surprise. The bible tells us in Revelation 16:15 "behold, I am coming like a thief! Blessed is the one who stays awake, keeping his garments on, that he may not go about naked and be seen exposed!”
Living in this day and time, it is written what is to come! No, we do not know the exact time, day nor hour but can rest assure that the word of God is true and has all of what we need to guide us in and through this life here on Earth.
Holy Spirit has come to be with us as promised in Acts 1:8 "But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be My witnesses, telling people about Me everywhere - in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth".
In my flesh, I am worrisome and undecisive but as a new created creature in Christ Jesus, the old things have passed away and I no longer have to lean unto my own understanding and when in doubt I can exchange my doubts for God's confidence and wisdom. If the bible calls us to be a "blessed" people staying awake and keeping his garments on- this tells me that I must be vigilant, alert, and always have on my spiritual glasses.
