Our Hope Comes Through God

English Audio Version

The world shatters our illusions.

Train bombings. School shootings. People who kick their dogs without justification.

What are we coming to?

Then we read of melting glaciers, disappearing sea ice, and we have repeated heat waves that cover half the globe.

Thousands die, and we wonder if this is the way the world ends.

God says to keep our hope in him. No matter what transpires, what we read in the newspaper or see on the television, God still sits on the throne of heaven.

Psalm 42:11 shouts his glory.

“Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you in turmoil within me? Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my salvation and my God.”

Train bombings are horrific. Why would anyone do that? Even so, God is mighty, and he reigns forever.

School shootings. Despicable. Yet even through the horror, the love of the Father is undiminished.

Those who mistreat the less powerful are misfits that don’t fit in God’s plan. Still, we can find solace in our God.

Our changing world? Will the end come through climate change? That story is unwritten. What we do know is that God controls tomorrow, and we are held securely in his hand.

This verse tells us to have hope in God. Quit worrying about the news. Stuff will happen. Bad things will continue, but we mustn’t become despondent.

God is our victory, and in him, we will see a brighter tomorrow.
