It’s very quiet; too quiet. Are we in the eye of the hurricane? The sun is out, the sky is clear, and the world seems somewhat normal. However, the wind is changing direction, and the backside of the hurricane is approaching. What will become of us when its power begins to rage? Nothing, unless the light blinds you. What’s funny is that the blind think we are the ones who are blind! Oh, but I see ever so clearly; my eyes are open to the truth, how about you?
Many in Jesus’s day knew the truth about him but refused to admit it for fear of the Pharisees, so they kept quiet. Today, many say they believe but are too caught up in worldly affairs to leave them behind. The price is too high for them to follow Jesus, but we know it costs more to reject him.
Though the sun is shining today, the backside of the hurricane is getting closer, and time is running out. Bask in the glory of Jesus; commit to memory all he has done for you; because when things get tough, we will need to remember how faithful he has been and not lose hope. Are you prepared? If you trust in Jesus, you have everything you need to survive the storm.
While you have the light, believe in the light, that you may become sons of light.” When Jesus had said these things, he departed and hid himself from them. John 12:36
