We live in a world where anything can happen. Could we have predicted many of the things that we are seeing in the world around us? Not me. It is very unsettling. Technology is moving so fast..no one knows where it will all end. Since the internet took over.. the world has become a much smaller place. We know so much more about what is going on in other places..maybe more than we would like to know. Problems abound. People are suffering. Of course this was always happening but now we have a daily update on how bad it is.
So what does that mean for you and me? We need to turn to God in a greater way..to realize in a deeper way..to cling in a tighter way..to seek in a more urgent way..to know more intensely that He is faithful. In all things..at all times..in all ways. His character is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. Problems are not disappearing. Suffering is not ending. The world is not going to get better. Life is going to continue to be challenging.
He is for us.. He is with us.. He is closer than we realize. His plan is for good and not for evil. His ways are not our ways. He breathes life into our weary bones. He refreshes our dried up spirits. He is doing a new thing. He is our one and only. We can turn to Him as often as we need to and He will be faithful to meet is in the best way possible.
