What Do You Do?

Steve Martin
1st Edition June 15, 2019
What do you do, when changes are rapidly happening around you, and you really want to do what is right, but don’t know what to do?

When meeting with our local leadership team recently, the question was asked in regards to what would be a good topic for the next session of teaching. I suggested by saying, “People are always wondering what to do with today’s situations we find ourselves in. They just aren’t sure at times, as in “Do I have compassion? Do I stand up and fight? Do I express “love” and let it be?”

It can be very confusing at times, as your heart, mind, and soul are pulled in every direction, depending upon who or what you last hear in regards to these matters.

When my suggestion was basically set aside, of course, I had to fight rejection, with my tail between my legs, as the discussion moved on. Another topic took the top prize.

Yet sensing that the matter was not closed, at least for me, I have been thinking about it for these past three days, when the Lord Jesus, through His Holy Spirit, spoke a word to me this morning, “This thought you had came from Me. I want you to do it.”

And so I shall!

Needing a Scriptural basis to stand on, because if you don’t have a solid rock you don’t have anything, I asked the Lord for a foundational verse from His Word, the Torah, the Bible. This is what He gave me.

“Then I said to them, “You see the distress that we are in, how Jerusalem lies waste, and its gates are
burned with fire. Come and let us build the wall of Jerusalem, that we may no longer be a reproach.” And I told them of the hand of my God which had been good upon me, and also of the king’s words that he had spoken to me. So they said, “Let us rise up and build.” Then they set their hands to this good work.” (Nehemiah 2:17-18, NKJV)

Each of us can agree that our nation, the world, is in waste, and further destruction is happening every day, as the nations turn from the Living God and move forward in deception, self-centeredness, pleasure-seeking, and self-fulfillment. As believers, we are being called upon to stand up and lift the banner of the Lord high above all else. Only then will people hear and have the choice of salvation and true freedom.

There you go. Now you will get some answers as to what to do when you aren’t sure what you and I are to do.

Be watching for the next one!

Wanting to know His ways, always, and share them with the world,
