Child of the world – which direction do you face?

When you face difficulties in life, which direction do you face? To the temporary worldly things you proudly have earned, or to the God you love who has given you every blessing and can even take all your worldly goods away and give you peace?

There is this hymn written by Johnson Oatman Junior:

When upon life’s billows you are tempest-tossed,
When you are discouraged, thinking all is lost,
Count your many blessings, name them one by one,
And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done.
Count your blessings, name them one by one,
Count your blessings, see what God hath done!
Count your blessings, name them one by one,
*Count your many blessings, see what God hath done.
[*And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done.]

Yes, if you face the direction of faith in the Living God, you will know that everything will turn out right, for God works only for your good for He is love. If we know who is in control of our lives, and who can control our lives, we can be confident that the One who holds the stars in space, will hold us when we see stars! Praise The Lord.

When we face bankruptcy – it is then we know who will supply our every need, not want, and He owns all the mines in the world and there is nothing of short supply with Him, whatever our status.

When we face losing our home, we will be reminded that He who sees the sparrows fall will know when our roof is taken from over our heads. Our heart is His home, will He not protect His living temple?

When we are hungry, will He not feed us as our Father?

Child of the world, when you finally have nothing of the worldly things at the end of life’s day, which direction will you say you have chosen?
The direction of earthly reward, or eternal reward?

One leaves you lost, homeless and empty – handed,
Facing Christ, He will say “welcome home, my child, all that belongs to Me shall be yours”.

I am so glad I belong to Jesus, for many years ago I had chosen Jesus. Have you made your choice? Do not take too long, for yesterday my friend’s mother lost her opportunity to choose when she had a fatal fall. In the morning she was bubbling with happiness for she had won big time Toto, legalized gambling. Today she lost everything in death.

Make your decision, no one escapes.
Yes face and accept Jesus Christ as your Savior? Or Yes to the things and master of this world.

Only you can decide for yourself. No one else can.

  1. When we choose Christ we can lose nothing. We have the best of this world, and the eternal glory of the next.
    Psalm 16:11 You will show me the path of life. In Your presence is fullness of joy. At Your right hand there are pleasure for evermore.
