“But the two wings of the great eagle were given to the woman, so that she could fly into the wilderness to her place, where she was nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent” (Revelation 12:14).
The Lord gives reprieves. The wicked one may attack, but the Lord is Sovereign. Do you worry about wicked times? Do you worry about the outcome? The Lord will prevail. This is His world, and He created all things. Do not be frightened by the stupidity of evil, but marvel at the goodness of the Lord. All the wickedness of this age is but for a season. He will shelter you under the shadow of His wings.
Lord, travesty comes, and I wonder why. Tribulation comes and I do not understand. Help me to know that Your holy angels protect and guard those who are in You. Lead me according to Your goodness to know that in You alone is all hope. Time is your creation and it is in your hands. Lead me toward You no matter who or what pursues me. Guide me to love You and others according to Your will.
Lord Jesus, daily, I need to be saved from the fear and doubts that are in me. But You told us to “fear not.” Lead me according to Your goodness so that I may hold fast to the hope and promises You give that are mine in You. Lead me each day to do what You would have me do. Let me not be distracted by the insanity of the wickedness in this world, but instead live according to the Word You have given me. Amen.
