DON’T JUDGE BECAUSE YOU COULD BE A REFUGEE OR MIGRANT ONE DAY…

I live in a suburb of Memphis. Many people don’t realize that Memphis, St. Louis and other nearby cities are located in an area vulnerable to earthquakes. The New Madrid fault earthquakes of 1811-1812 rank among the largest in North American history. Of course, these areas were much less populated back then, but today earthquakes in this zone measuring 8 on the Richter scale would be catastrophic. Very few people who live in these areas have earthquake insurance. Many major corporations have either headquarters or vital operations in these areas. To say life would be disrupted would be an understatement.

An event such as this would leave millions of people homeless and destitute (look at the afteenath of the incredible hurricanes that have hit in recent years), possibly overwhelming any aid the government could give. Especially if other events were taking place simultaneously.

Every part of our country is vulnerable to some type of natural disaster…tornados, tsunamis, hurricanes etc.

We live in an increasingly unstable political climate.

Many people have been so spoiled by our abundance, prosperity, freedom and ‘security’…

Proverbs 11:28 (NKJV)

28 He who trusts in his riches will fall,
But the righteous will flourish like foliage.

God is not impressed by the ‘strength of man’…

Psalm 147:10 (NKJV)

10 He does not delight in the strength of the horse;
He takes no pleasure in the legs of a man.


Many look down on those who are forced to quickly flee for refuge…REFUGEES.


“They should have been prepared!”

“They aren’t our problem!”

“There’s not excuse”…many people harshly judge on those who have been visited by sudden calamity.

But let me remind you…

No matter where you live. No matter how much money you have. No matter how you’ve prepared. God can use…

The right storm…

The right natural disaster…

The right military conflict…

The right shock to our economy…

To remind us that He is in control.

People put their faith in our economic system, our political system, their savings, their own wisdom…

1 Timothy 6:17 (NKJV)

17 Command those who are rich in this present age not to be haughty, nor to trust in uncertain riches but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy.

Think about the fact that an event could happen so quickly and catastrophically, it can destroy everything that any ‘doomsday prepper’ has ‘prepared’ for instantly!

No matter how much power you have…

No matter who you may know…

No matter how detailed your plan may be…

No matter how wise you think you are…

No matter what resources may be available to you NOW…


One day you could be a refugee!


Be thankful. Be compassionate. Pray for those whose lives have been turned upside down. Be prepared as much as you can, but most of all…

Yes borders need to be secured, but watch your attitude and BE HUMBLE!

One day it could be you.

BE BLESSTIFIFED!

 

NO MATTER WHAT YOU’VE DONE, GOD IS READY TO FORGIVE YOU…

We have all done things of which we are ashamed. Sometimes we feel we have done things that God will never forgive, especially when others won’t forgive or we are living out the consequences.

Sometimes we can commit sins after we’ve been ‘saved’ that make us question our salvation.


Especially when God has allowed YOUR SECRET(S) to remain secret.


But, let me give you a short encouraging reminder that not matter what you’ve done, God WILL forgive you. No matter how low you have gone, God can reach down and save you. He can even deliver you from the consequences of your sins, bad decisions and weaknesses.

Here is the one caveat. We must always come to Him in humility and never belittle or speak in disrespect or irreverently of His Holy Spirit…

Mark 3:28-30 (NKJV)

And remember, you don’t have to ‘curse’ or ‘cuss’ to do this. Be careful that you’re never disrespectful to the authority, convicting power, intercession of or work His Holy Spirit in your life or the life of anyone else. But when we stop and think before we speak, this isn’t difficult to avoid.

So, be encouraged! The price Yeshua, Christ Jesus,  paid for us on the cross leaves no sin out of reach from His saving power.

Isaiah 59:1 (NKJV)

Hebrews 7:24-25 (NKJV)
