There is a lingering haze over our house today because of all the “bombs bursting in air” throughout our neighborhood last night. We knew what we were in for during the 4th of July celebration because years ago, we lived across the lake from this neighborhood and could hear the exuberant commotion coming from here, but what I didn’t know was how petrified my dog would be from all the uproar. I guess because we’ve never been up close and personal with firecrackers and quarter sticks of dynamite, I’m not sure if that’s what they had, but it was deafening. He will probably sleep more than usual today.
Imagine the celebration we will have once Jesus makes known his authority over this world, and the devil is locked away; it will be glorious! I’m looking forward to the day when worry and dread are no longer a part of our emotions, and those words disappear from our vocabulary. I don’t contend with those words because I trust in the LORD, but some people do, and I would like to see them comforted. No matter how loud the devil makes his presence known, as followers of Christ, we can relax in Jesus. Take comfort in knowing that today.
Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is. Ephesians 5:17
