Blessed Is the Nation Whose God Is the LORD

Blessed Is the Nation  Whose God  Is the LORD

No matter what country  one may live in these days,  one can find Christians,  atheists,  cultists,  and religions  of all sorts.      Some Christians  get very concerned  about the growth  of the unbelieving populations  and the small numbers  of those  honestly faithful  to the Lord — not to mention  all the corruption  going on.      But,  as we rest  in our Lord’s hands,  we don’t have to be  so disturbed,  because Jesus  has already told us  in Matthew 24:9-14,

Then  they will deliver you up  to tribulation,  and will kill you,  and you will be hated  by all nations  on account of  My name.      And  at that time  many will fall away  and will betray  one another  and hate  one another.      And many false prophets  will arise,  and will  mislead many.      And  because lawlessness is increased,  most people’s love  will grow cold.      But  the one who endures  to the end,  it is he  who shall be saved.      And this gospel  of the kingdom  shall be preached  in the whole world  for a witness  to all the nations,  and then  the end shall come.

What a message!      It all  plainly speaks  for itself.      In this tumult,  along with cold,  loveless hearts,  we need to make sure  that we  “endure to the end”  in God’s truths.      We cannot believe  for anyone else.      And,  we cannot expect  to hang onto  the coattails  of someone else’s faith.      We are the ones  who need to  “endure to the end”  in God’s word,  and stay close  to the Lord  in faith,  hope,  and love.

We need to realize  that God is  in total control.      We don’t need  to be in a frenzy  over God’s word  being fulfilled.      God’s love  will never fail us — no matter what sorts  of trials  we may have to endure.      We just need to  be faithful.      Psalm 33:9-12  sings of God’s authoritative power  in all these things,

For He spoke,  and it was done;
He commanded,  and it stood fast.
The LORD  nullifies the counsel  of the nations;
He frustrates  the plans  of the peoples.
The counsel  of the LORD  stands forever,
The plans  of His heart  from generation  to generation.
Blessed is the nation  whose God  is the LORD,
The people  whom He has chosen  for His own inheritance.

There is  no other Lord or God.      Only what God Almighty says  will stand fast.      For that reason,  we can rest  in the Lord.      It’s as Romans 8:28 promises,

And we know  that God causes  all things  to work together  for good  to those  who love God,  to those  who are called  according to  His purpose.

Resting in all of God’s word  to us,  we say,  “Hallelujah!      Lord,  Your word is proof  that You keep  all of Your promises  to us.      Thank You  for leading us  to understand  the greatness  of Your love  in every situation.”
