The LORD has done what he purposed; he has carried out his word… —Lamentations 2:17

 The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? —Psalm 27:1

             The Jewish rebellion against the Lord led to His justice taking place against them. The population grieved and wailed as they were under His judgment. It was far from pleasant as our Lord’s longsuffering with them ended. What He had purposed, what He had warned was carried out. Let us not think the United States will not undergo His justice for our rebellion as a nation as well.

            But even in judgment the Lord has those who are faithful. The faithful may be affected by the judgment of the nation, but He is still their Light and Salvation. They need not fear anything or any circumstance as They follow Him, even when the nation undergoes judgment. He is always the stronghold of their life in good times or evil times.   They need not fear any man.

            Yes, our Lord has carried out His Word as He purposed in the past, is doing so in the present and will persevere in doing so in the future. As followers of Jesus we are to be lovingly faithful in whatever circumstance we find ourselves in. His purposes for us do not change. The situations we may find ourselves in may change, but the way we are to live and the work we are to do have not changed and will not change until the end of this age. So… let us be faithful!

Dear Father may this be so in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Your Son Jesus. Oh, that You would be honor and glorified through my life.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Yv2jYbuIc8
