“The sun will be turned into darkness and the moon into blood before the coming of the great terrible Day of Adonai.”
Joel 3:4 CJB
As we look around us, we can see the world getting darker and seemingly more hopeless! But in the LORD we always have hope! Our problem can be that we spend too much time focusing on the darkness!
“But those who hope in Adonai will renew their strength, they will soar aloft as with eagles’ wings; when they are running they won’t grow weary, when they are walking they won’t get tired.”
Isaiah 40:31 CJB
Life can be hard and difficult, but if that’s what we focus on, we can fall into depression and complacency! We will always get weary when we stare at the mess, but remember our strength is in the LORD and that is who we need to focus on, not the government, the job, or even the man teaching about the LORD! But we need to be focused on the LORD!
“At that time, whoever calls on the name of Adonai will be saved. For in Mount Tziyon and Yerushalayim there will be those who escape, as Adonai has promised; among the survivors will be those whom Adonai has called.”
Joel 3:5 CJB
As we look at the book of Joel, we can see many parallels happening around us today! What we need to see is our need to follow the LORD!
Have a blessed day in Him!
