Today was a good day for me. I began with extended prayer and then read Acts 1:5-11. My mind traveled back to the days when Jesus walked the earth He created which was not much different from today. There was political rivalry and a very hard time for all. Uncertainty marked every day.
There was one stable and constant in the midst of all the confusion. JESUS! He did not come to change or resolve unrest in or between nations. He came to turn the attention of individuals away from events in the world to Himself. Just before facing the most unjust trial and death, He left His disciples with words of strong comfort and encouragement.
“I have said these things to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).
That was not all He left them with. “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth” (Acts 1:8).
This peace and power was not just for becoming “witnesses,” but for living faithfully in a Godless world. His plan and purpose WILL NOT FAIL! Be sure you are walking close to Jesus and in the power of the Holy Spirit. The world is running to judgment. We are running for glory!
