The table is furnished with goodies and we are about to partake in something good. I am glad that you chose to come by. I had some things on my mind and wanted to share with you a little secret. Of course, this secret is encoded. Only those with ears to hear will actually get it. I am ok with that. Pardon me, if I did not ask you, to have a seat.
The most interesting thing dawned on me. The race we are running is not given to the fast and furious. Please pass me those delicious brownies. Thank You! The prize is given and kept by those who run it correctly. Those brownies are really good!
It may seem like your running is done in vain. Yes! It appears you are losing the race. The surrounding darkness, like Lot, vexes your spirit daily. You turn on the news and hear the multiplicity of foolishness. Men and women confused about how to dress. Men, in every work place, from the fake pastor to the school janitor, chasing other men or boys. Did you try those cherries dipped in brown sugar? Try it. I find the flavors match perfectly. When turmoil of this kind gets worse there is a temptation to grow cold. Don’t do it.
Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord and was delivered out of the affliction of a people who did not fear God and died within the waters of the flood. Rahab, through wise counsel, alone, was delivered when the city of Jericho was completely destroyed. Daniel was saved from the lion’s den and his three friends were saved from a fiery furnace. These men and women lived in days of seemingly no hope, because many of the people in some cases, all of the people, around them were wicked. This pattern begins from the pages of Genesis and ends in Revelation. The same outcome happens to the righteous as it does to the wicked.
The righteous is preserved and the wicked are always destroyed. Do not stand with the wicked, they will perish. We do not take pleasure in it; we simply stay away from it, so that we may be preserved. Notice the cases above. One man or woman with God is stronger than a nation of wicked people and never forget that. Have a seat. Take part in commenting. I love to dialogue.
