“And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from Heaven with His mighty angels.”
2 Thessalonians 1:7
There is certainly plenty in our world to trouble us, no need to make a list, we all know very well these things. They are real, but at the same time, for one who follows Christ, there should be a peace, a resting upon Him. This is available to every believer. It comes as a result of knowing..“ I can trust God! I can be patient, I can endure troubles or trials because I know God will do what’s right concerning me!
This peace in times of trouble is a sure sign to our enemies that “I am not falling apart, I will win because my hope is in God!” The enemy of our souls may come and say to us, “Don’t you see that things are getting worse?” And while that may be true of the the things of this world, the things of this world is not my hope after all... God is my hope! And He is not falling apart! He is operating above and beyond all human means or resources! All power is His! And we have trusted our lives to His Son Jesus Christ!
Therefore, we rest in Him, until the Lord Jesus comes to take us to a place of no worries, care or problems! Where there will only be peace, joy, praise and contentment forever!
So we may as well rest together with the saints until that grand day! May God give you peace and rest through our Lord Jesus Christ!
