This week’s Pastor to Person is written by Pastor Daniel Grant.
It’s easy to despair when we read some of the Biblical stories. In 2 Kings 11, the King dies and his mom Athaliah goes on a rampage and kills ALL the heirs. All except one. It was a dark time. Athaliah ruled with malice and evil cruelty.
It was dark, but one man took a stand in the day of slaughter, and saved Joash. Joash would grow up in hiding in the one place the Queen would NOT look, the Temple of the LORD. The day would come when God would restore the kingdom to rightful rule. Think what it must have been like to live in those times, lawlessness, murder darkness and death were the tones of the day. Whatever dark and difficult time you are facing, know that you are not alone. You are seen by the Almighty, and loved by us!! The light is coming, and righteous judgment will always win out. A wise old man once said, “We do not get to choose the times we live in, but all we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.”
Sending HUGE hugs,
