Bible Build Up
"The mystery of the seven stars which you saw in My right hand, and the seven golden lampstands: The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the seven lampstands which you saw are the seven churches."
- Revelation 1:20
If we’re truthful about the circumstances of life these days, things are hard. Times are tough. Especially when we examine things through the lens of scripture, things look bleak. The health of God’s church doesn’t look encouraging either. Often times, it is the people of God that we hope will be our encouragement but are often the source of our greatest frustrations and troubles. All of us have moments in life where things just seem to be out of control. However, as students of the Bible and as children of God we need to remember one fundamental truth – God is ALWAYS in control. To examine the condition of the world with fear and dismay is to doubt the sovereignty of God. To examine the condition of the church with discouragement and doubt is to forget that God is faithful. Remember, Jesus is still seated at the right hand of the Father where He is supposed to be. Jesus is still interceding on behalf of His people like scripture says He’s supposed to. The church is still in Jesus’ hand, and all things are still held together by Him, reminding us that things are never out of control – at least not His control…
