We live today in a world that is constantly shifting, a world that has been rapidly changing, and a world that one day looks encouraging and the next day makes us concerned about our future. One could get pretty discouraged with all that’s going on. In fact, as long as you look at the world, that is what’s going to happen.
No matter what goes on, every true child of God will overcome what’s ahead for them in the world. We don’t lose with God. The Bible says in Deuteronomy 31:6: “Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.”
I want you to get a grip on the fact that you can’t fail when you’ll stay on God’s side. I know the world’s a mess, but God isn’t. God’s not moved or swayed by man’s opinion or problems. God knows the truth, and that is the only place from where He operates. Jesus is real. Jesus said in John 14:27: “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”
Folks, God loves all people, even those who don’t love Him. Even people that get up every day and think nothing of Him, even curse Him. He may not approve of their lifestyles, but God does care about everyone. If Jesus could feed 5,000 people at a time with only two baskets of food, or if God could lead 2 to 3 million people out into a desert place and care for them for 40 years, then your needs are as well taken care of. The same God that preserved Jonah, who was swallowed by a whale and in that whale’s belly for three days- and the same God who gave a young boy the power to put an end to a giant who was mocking God- is the very same God that we have here with us today!
His miracles did not pass away with the apostles nor at any other time. That same God of Heaven and of earth is here with you today. We have a great hope in Christ. There is truly power in His position as the Son of the living God who causes hell to tremble; and believe me when I say that if we put our lives in His capable hands, hell takes notice. You can’t be touched in God’s hands, but only by God, for if Satan gets too close that hand will crush him.
