What’s next for believers? Be strong and courageous, do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed; the LORD your God is with you wherever you go. And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell.
If there was ever a perfect time for you to start listening to someone other than humans, it might be now. Tune into the Holy Spirit, but until you begin hearing him clearly, you must read the scriptures. When I first started studying the Bible, I began by only reading the red letters. That was eye-opening! If you’re not already reading your Bible, you could start there; the red letters are quotes from Jesus. The whole Bible is God-breathed, which means it comes directly from him, so it’s all God’s words, but if you concentrate your effort to learn the ways of Jesus, your belief will grow strong, and you will know his ways!
We cannot trust the news and social media; the time is now to begin strengthening our belief in Jesus. If you know him, you won’t be fooled by those who say they are him.
I worked as a teller at a bank for many years. I knew what real money felt like because I touched it every day. If someone brought in a counterfeit bill, I knew it right away because it would feel different. To know Jesus is to study him, know his ways, so you are aware when a counterfeit presents himself.
Joshua 1:9; Matthew 10:28
