1 Peter 4:7

“The end of the world is coming soon. Therefore, be earnest and disciplined in your prayers.” 1 Peter 4:7

These words of Peter’s can either frighten us or excite us! We need only to turn on the news and see the devastation, the wars, the loss of morality and values and know that the world has turned its back on God. The Maker of this whole world is being pushed aside, ignored, and mocked. When you stop and think of what is truly going on, it’s heartbreaking.

As a mother, I can only imagine how it would feel to have my child turn their back on me. To have invested my life, my love, and my time with my kids. To have poured truth into them only to have them push me aside would hurt more than anything imaginable. Some of you ladies are walking through that trial right now. Please know that we are standing with you in prayer. But more than that, know that God is with you and that He knows more than anyone else what you are going through.

We know how this battle ends. God wins. So let’s not be frightened by Peter’s words, let’s be excited. Our Father is coming for us, and He will be victorious!!
