An Uncertain Future

An Uncertain Future...

As we gaze to the future one thing seems certain, increasing darkness awaits us.

It has been said that a people get the government they deserve, but it seems so many times that we also get a government which is made in our own image - the government is us!

The Hubris, the Bombast, the Narcissism and the Childishness of the leaders is merely the reflection of these same qualities in ourselves.

We, too flail around in life, and run in circles - insecure, inconstant and clueless.

Mankind is floundering and hell enlarges its mouth.
The church  is "taught by the precept of man" and the light of the Spirit is missing.
"These things ought not so to be".

Jesus came to give us Life but also Light, to bring us to a place where the past with its torment and failure is forever gone.
He desires to  give us a place where and life is quickened and empowered - sufficient for every circumstance, and every moment of every day.

Our world is sinking fast into darkness, and no one is able to lead us out. 
We are lost unless we are able by the Spirit of God to see the length, and breadth, and height, and depth of the provision God has prepared for His own and for this time.

The promise is certain "And ye shall seek me, and ye shall find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart." Jer 29.13
