What’s the World Coming To?

There’s a line in an old Chicago song that says, “What’s the world coming to?” Well, the answer is, catastrophic judgment at the hands of God, that’s what. There’s another lyric in that same song that goes, “People gotta get it together.” But no, they won’t be getting it together without bowing the knee to Jesus Christ.

For his followers it’s painful to watch what’s going on. It seems that God’s losing out to evil in almost every venue. We all want to cry out to God to act, and act quickly! Sort of like what’s in Psalm 68, where David cries out, in a song, mind you, “Let God arise!”

The king wants God’s enemies scattered and driven away. Actually he wants them vanquished so that he might joyously exult his God without hindrance. But the truth is, the Lord rides unimpeded through deserts low and heavens high from his holy habitation, answering our cries for help (he is the ultimate superhero).

Only he is the a father of the fatherless, a judge for the widows, a liberator of prisoners, a safe place for the lonely, and a provider to the poor. (v. 5-6, 10)

I draw comfort and confidence in knowing my God’s “chariots are myriads, thousands upon thousands.” (V. 17)

So “blessed be the Lord, who daily bears our burden. The God who is our salvation. God is to us a God of deliverances; and to God the Lord belong escapes from death.” (v. 19-20)

And “cast your burden upon the Lord and He will sustain you; He will never allow the righteous to be shaken. (Psalm 55:22).

Doing this will make your life, “Ooh, so much better!”
