In His Care

October 5, 2014

The news these days can be discouraging, even for Christians. We hear of wars and rumors of wars, as the Lord predicted we would (Matt. 24: 6). He, of course, instructed us not to be troubled. Still, with terrorism a reality and thousands made refugees, we can feel very small.

God, however, remains in charge. Whatever the dangers around us, whatever the trials that befall us and our loved ones, we remain safely in His care.

This must not be confused with a guarantee of safety, as the world understands the term. As Christians, we are promised suffering. This is a war on evil in which we are engaged.  We must be prepared to take up our cross and follow Christ.

Why are you cast down, O my soul?
And why are you disquieted within me?
Hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him
For the help of His countenance” (Psalm 42: 5).

Lord God, these are dark days. Evil is on the increase everywhere. We look to You for comfort and protection.

Remove fear and discouragement from our hearts. Help us to be patient when trials afflict us, that Your glory may be revealed.

Keep Your loving arms around us, for we know that You have overcome the world.

Amen
