This is a time to separate the goats from the lambs . . . and the goats in lamb's clothing. . . . I see all being tested especially hard right now. . . .
The distractions are astoundingly intense. So, so, so much self seeking--same old thing. The devil's mantra "I don't care" is everywhere, especially in the latest his songs. Long ago I labeled it "IDC" and we've used it as a descriptive meme in our family for years . . . certain people are "IDC" we say, or controlled by the IDC Demon. . . .
It is nothing more than the same old response, "I don't care what you say God . . . I'm doing it MY way. . . ."
Everywhere the assault is on. . . .
But I do not fret, though buffeted by the loose ships and loose lips banging around in the harbor or out at sea. . . . I rest in the sovereignty of God. If man's free will is ruling the day, then, yes, there is little hope--none actually. But I don't believe that. I believe what the Bible says--that God is in control of everything, omnipotent, all-powerful . . . perfect . . . just . . . good . . . holy. . . .
He will mercy who He wants, and punish those He will. It's all in His mighty, holy hands. . . .
