Encouragement for Women
Good evening sister saints!
Praise God for this day and let us be thankful for the one we are in because we never know what's coming in the next one, if we get it, and we have enough to deal with today.
I'm sure most of you know the war that is going on with Russia and the Ukraine. It's striking fear in the hearts of many because the ramifications could be global, depending on where it all goes. But then again we've seen such events before ...
I just wanted to share with you sisters that it's good for us to be informed on what goes on in the world, it's not sinful, but we don't want to be overtaken by it. We saints are to have wisdom, and in that, knowledge is power that can be used for witnessing and for preparing ourselves for what's ahead.
Many people use this verse to say that we shouldn't have anything to do with or pay attetion to what's going on in the world...
No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier. 2 Timothy 2:4
But what they don't understand is that knowing about something and using the knowledge from it to either prepare ahead or for witnessing, is different than getting entangled and involved in it all.
We see the saints of old, prepared for what was coming (or might come) and thus we should also as the ones who manage our homes to make sure everyone is taken care of. Storing up long term foods and essentials for such hard times that might come, is a great idea. A while ago we talked to saints about getting bibles to have on hand. But most important is that we need our foundation solid in Christ because without that, nothing matters. We need to be rock solid in the GOSPEL and then we can withstand all that comes our way because that means we have the Holy Spirit within us that will help us to overcome. Glory to God for His precious truths!
Don't fear sisters....
These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. John 16:33
Have a joyous evening sister saints.
Love in our Savior who as overcome the world.
