Certainly, if there has ever been a time in our generation that we should be extra watchful, attentive, and focused closely upon the Lord, it is today. How quickly things, major things, in our world have changed. If we don't think there is something stirring in the heavenlies, we are sticking our heads in the sand! So what do we do? Panic? Try to figure a way out of it? Give up? Certainly none of the above is the answer. Jesus said a couple things that are helpful!
First, He said “Be watchful.” That means to be on guard, don’t be deceived. Stay close to our Father in Heaven, fellowship daily with His Son. Look into Scripture for encouragement, direction, help and strength! Today is a day to stay close to God and walk in step with Him. Peter put it this way in his second letter to believers, chapter 3, “Seeing then all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,”. For certain, this is a time to simply live a Godly life.
Secondly, Jesus said, “Pray always” All kinds of prayers, prayers for ourselves and others. Particularly in this passage He says, “Pray you be counted worthy to escape all the things that will befall the earth in the end and be counted worthy to stand before God.” Pray it in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ! Lord count us worthy on that Great Day to be with You!
So who knows for sure what is going to happen in these days we are living in? What Jesus said will work...”Be watchful and pray!!”
