We live in a world of people filled with little hope or knowledge of God. We can see the effects of that when we watch the news or read the paper. Senseless violence.... natural disasters... unknown diseases... hunger and malnourishment... What hope is left for this world?
In the midst of all this darkness, we have a helper. Jesus, the greatest Friend who has ever lived, has promised to be with us in our troubles and give us peace in our darkest times. Jesus told us that the world would be a dark place...
“Jesus spoke to the people once more and said, “I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.””
John 8:12 NLT
“I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.”
John 16:33 NLT
... But there is hope! Jesus is our hope and our helper!
Today He says, “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you ... I will uphold you with My righteous right hand” (Isa. 41:10).
Jesus Christ has never let me down. He is more than my Helper; He is my Protector. He is the One who looks after my children when they go to school. He is the One I trust when I ask Him to station His angels around my home. I want to encourage you today to start concentrating on what Jesus says about you, and what He says He is providing for you, and not on what is going on in this crazy, dark world.
Today, pray and refocus on Jesus and His love for you. We can be joyful even in the midst of this dark world because He has promised never to abandon us.
