"Seek ye the Lord, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the Lord's anger." Zephaniah 2:3
IN JESUS TODAY!
Mark 13:13 reminds us that we will be hated of all men for his names sake, as it is found in the description of forthcoming woes and here in Zephaniah 2:1 we find a similar description acknowledging the sentiment towards Christians, wherein we are counted as the "nation not desired" in Zephaniah 2:1. So it is no surprise that we should be under a microscope or at the hands of faultfinders who seek any flaw to hold against us, but we must remember that it is not God that rejects us, he loves us and calls for us to a seek him so that we may be hid beneath the shadow of his wing. He knows that days will come where we fall short, times will be that we must fall in behind him for protection, and that the enemy does not rest in their quest to destroy God's children. So maybe you have fallen off of the bike and are feeling unworthy to ride again, it's true that the sentiment against us is real, still Jesus will help you up to try again anwhen you fall in behind him he will cover you with his wing of protection.
The day of the Lord's anger shall not be avoided by our enemies, there shall be no escape for those who hate. Let all who love Jesus and keep the faith gather themselves together and fall in behind the Lord!
