Hope in Jesus

Posted: July 22, 2016

It’s easy to watch the news and get discouraged. Tragedies, terrorist attacks, shootings, gender issues, and politics. Sometimes just scrolling through social media is enough to make you angry or sad or jaded, or all three at once!

The world seems to be falling apart, day by day, and there’s no doubt that we are living in a time clouded with evil, hatred, disaster, and death.

When we look at all that’s happening around us, it’s easy to lose hope. Where is God in all of this? How can He possibly work these horrific events, corrupt people and twisted truths for good?

Thankfully, the answers are found in His word.

“Against its will, all creation was subjected to God’s curse. But with eager hope, the creation looks forward to the day when it will join God’s children in glorious freedom from death and decay… And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.”

- Romans 8:20-2 & 28 NLT

Lord, we look to You in the midst of the chaos and devastation happening in this world. Thank You for the hope we have through Jesus that we will one day be free from death and decay. Thank You that you cause everything to work together for good. In Jesus’ name, amen.
