every knee will bow

I just read a horrific article from an abortion doctor talking about how much she loves her job - aborting babies.

She actually grew up in a 'Christian home' to use her terms, although they provided her with birth control and things that encouraged sexual activity as an unmarried believer.  So perhaps her definition of a Christian family and mine are different.

Anyway, it's very easy for me to become discouraged if I allow my eyes to focus on this world.  The horrible things they participate in leave me speechless and worried...

And then I go to God's Word.  His promises.  PROMISES!

"At the name of Jesus every knee will bow..and EVERY tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord! ....15 that you may be blameless and innocent, lchildren of God without blemish nin the midst of oa crooked and twisted generation, among whom you shine pas lights in the world,"

EVERY is a really important word.  There will be NONE that do not confess that HE ALONE IS LORD!  It's just a matter of time and God knows the appointed time when He'll send his Son!

When I see passages in the Bible that describe the world back in 'their day' as twisted and crooked - it is a great encouragement that our current world is nothing new and totally within God's plan.  

So what He wants from me is to simply abide in as if my hope is fully in Him and that I have very confidence that He is Lord of All!!!

May we enter this New Year as if our time is short, as if we're urgently called to tell others and as if we believe with all of our hearts EVERY tongue will confess!!
