Trust and obey for there is no other way……
How we need to hear this message again and again during these days in which we live, where money is tight, employment is difficult and pressure and stress can weigh heavily on our shoulders. In times like these let us remember we have a Saviour
In J.R.R. Tolkien’s fictional TheLord of the Rings, a simple, good- hearted hobbit by the name of Frodo Baggins is entrusted with a dangerous mission. Together with a group called the Fellowship of the Ring, he must defeat the forces of evil by returning a magic gold ring to the fires of Mount Doom from which it was forged.
Along the way, evil stalks Frodo. battles are lost. Friends die. Reflecting on such tragedies, Frodo confides in his wise friend Gandalf, “I wish the ring had never come to me. I wish that this had never happened.” Gandalf replies “ So do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All you must decide is how to use the time that is given to you.”
In the “fellowship of the cross,” a servant of Christ is also tested. Like Paul, we may feel crushed under the weight of circumstances (2 Cor. 1:3-11). The path seems too steep to climb. We wonder if there is a dawn beyond the darkness.
Though we may not choose our circumstances, we do choose whether to trust God (2 Cor. 1:9). Through the fellowship of the Son and the enablement of the Spirit, we can carry out our mission which God as given us (1 Cor. 1:9; John 16:13),.
Trust Him to guide you along the way. He offers wise counsel.
Trust and obey….
”Then in fellowship sweet, we will sit at His feet Or we’ll walk by His side in the way;
What He says we will do, where He sends we will go- Never fear, only trust and obey.”
As we go forward into a new winter session but your trust in God he is our refuge and help
Yours in Christ
