Today's News

Matthew 24:6-8 (New Living Translation)
6 And you will hear of wars and threats of wars, but don’t panic. Yes, these things must take place, but the end won’t follow immediately. 7 Nation will go to war against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in many parts of the world. 8 But all this is only the first of the birth pains, with more to come.

So...have you noticed how much today's news and God's Word has in common? People get ready!! This is the time to search His Word, not ignore it!!

The best news is...we don't have to worry about it!!

Philippians 4:5-7 (New Living Translation)
5 Let everyone see that you are considerate in all you do. Remember, the Lord is coming soon.
6 Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. 7 Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.

Oh, Lord Jesus, I thank you for that peace you can place in our hearts and minds so we do not have to fret over what is or what is to come. You are in control, Sovereign God, and I place my trust in you. May I keep my eyes on Jesus, and daily grow in His likeness so that others will be drawn to desire that peace that you alone can give....“I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid." (John 14:27)
