Am I overcharged with the care of this life?


The words ‘overcharged’ and ‘cares of this life’
linked themselves together this morning.

Luke 21:33-36
Heaven and earth shall pass away:
but my words shall not pass away.
34 And take heed to yourselves,
lest at any time your hearts be overcharged
with surfeiting, and drunkenness,
and cares of this life,
and so that day come upon you unawares.
35 For as a snare shall it come on all them
that dwell on the face of the whole earth.
36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always,
that ye may be accounted worthy to escape
all these things that shall come to pass,
and to stand before the Son of man.

We are bombarded with so much information
about the times we live in that it is difficult
to rightly divide truth from error.
We must ‘take heed’ to focus on God’s Word
to calm our fears,
‘to stand before the Son of man’,
to always be available for the ‘other’.

God’s Word tells us not to be ignorant of the Satan’s devices
2 Corinthians 2:11
Lest Satan should get an advantage of us:
for we are not ignorant of his devices.

and to think on these things first.
Philippians 4:4-9
Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice.
5  Let your moderation be known unto all men.
The Lord is at hand.
6  Be careful for nothing;
but in every thing by prayer and supplication
with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
7  And the peace of God,
which passeth all understanding,
shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
8  Finally, brethren,
whatsoever things are true,
whatsoever things are honest,
whatsoever things are just,
whatsoever things are pure,
whatsoever things are lovely,
whatsoever things are of good report;
if there be any virtue,
and if there be any praise,
think on these things.
9  Those things, which ye have both learned,
and received, and heard, and seen in me, do:
and the God of peace shall be with you.

Today, let your meditation be acceptable in God’s sight. Amen.
