The World Crashes, God Rescues
Written by Rise & Shine on April 22, 2021
I saw a post last night that was a cry from a heart to God from a young woman felt her world crumbling. She asked God to fill her with His love, and with love for Him. My heart goes out to her… and to all who feel the same way. As I read her prayer, God gave me a realization that I shared with her; and will now share with you:
Sometimes when our world falls apart, it’s quite possibly because that wasn’t the world we were meant to live in in the first place. It’s not a punishment, but a course correction intended to get us to the place that we were meant to be all along.
If your world seems to be falling apart, examine why. You may just find that you desire something better, and are being given the opportunity to move toward it. Be bold in stepping out today! Live with courage born in faith in the God that leads you to glorious things.
If they had been thinking of the land that they had left behind, they would have had opportunity to return. But as it is, they desire a better country, that is, a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God; indeed, he has prepared a city for them.
