Son, since you have never traveled this way before, purify yourself, for I am getting ready do great wonders. I will do this so that all the nations of the earth will know that My hand is powerful, and that they might fear Me.
For a boisterous country, once so secure says, “I am the greatest! No other country can compare to me!” They claim to follow Me, but then they worship the things of this world. They no longer ask for My guidance or seek My blessings. They think I will do nothing to them, either good or bad. No one can tell them anything, and they refuse all My corrections. They do not trust Me or draw near to Me. They get up early to continue their evil deeds and they think their silver and gold will save them. But soon they will become an utter ruin and everyone passing by will laugh at them because of the decisions they have made.
Remember, human effort accomplishes nothing. So spend your energy seeking My eternal life. Believe what I have told you; that I will never reject You. My words are your life, and My words give you eternal life. With My love, I will calm all your fears. Soon all your troubles will be over, and you will never again fear disaster.
Lord, there are so many troubles today – too many to count! Sometimes I get discouraged because I can’t see a way out. But Lord, my only hope is in You. I will wait for You to help me. You will lift me out of the pit of despair, out of the mud and the mire of this world. You will set my feet on solid ground and steady me as I walk. Therefore, I put my hope in You my Lord, my Savior and my King.
