Let's keep hope

In these hard days in our country, we can see that we do not feel as much emotion or we do not see positive changes around us as we would like, the decline of public services is very evident more and more, people are very agitated solving the issue of Gasoline, food and struggling to survive. In the morning of today I was talking with my father-in-law of some doctrinal issues regarding the word of God and concerning the current events that we have been observing, which show that our Jesus Christ is closer. From this conversation my suggestion was able to express this fraze to me: the Lord said that he sends us like sheep in the middle of wolves, wow, I exclaimed, I was surprised since the one who mentioned this word was Jesus Christ himself.

This reflection is in the book of Matthew chapter 10

MATTHEW 10:16 Version LBLA
Look, I send you like sheep in the middle of wolves; Therefore, be as cunning as snakes and innocent as doves.
In this context he is referring to persecutions and sufferings because of the gospel, which will come as future events, but also the afflictions that come with the restrictions of living a life in holiness, the world will become increasingly dangerous and many people Try to destroy each other by the evil of hearts.

The Lord says that we are calm because whoever is with us is the most powerful, It is the Holy Spirit of God who guides us all truth, does not allow in the mercy of the father that we do not deviate or go after other gods and not We faint, that is what the Lord does so that we will remain constant in our walk.

>> ***Hebrews 12: 1-2 King James Version (NIV)*** Eyes on Jesus 12 Therefore, we also, having around our great cloud of witnesses, let us take off all weight and the sin that beset us, and we patiently run the race that lies ahead,

2 laid eyes on Jesus, the author and finisher of faith, who for the joy set before him suffered the cross, belittling the reproach, and sat at the right hand of the throne of God.
