It is possible to have hope in this crazy world. The debt is out of control. Earthquakes and flooding, increasing in frequency. Violence spreading and worsening. Banks failing. Countries in danger of failing. Whole continents and all the countries it contains spiraling downward. Skepticism. Mistrust. Fear. What is there to hope in?
Jesus Christ. The government rests on His shoulders. He has control of both heaven and earth. Everything is working out for good.
I believe the future is good. Because God is good. I don’t understand how or why these terrible things are happening, except that He has told us far in advance that they will come before the last day.
My hope is not that my life will be perfect, or that my country will be perfect — but that Jesus will have His way. His perfect country is coming. That’s the promise of His Word. In His Word do I hope!
