The Only Hope In The World
Thou art my hiding place and my shield: I hope in thy word” (Psalm 119:114). People are discovering today that the systems and institutions of the world in which they felt secure, are not as foolproof as they thought. Fraud, terrorist attacks, wars and rumours of wars have put the so-called ‘world peace’ under constant threat. Natural disasters and outbreak of new diseases that defy medical science are constant reminders that there’s little or no hope in the world in these times of great distress.
But thank God that irrespective of what the situation may be, there’s hope in the Word for you today. The reason most folks only experience the ‘bad’ of the land is that that’s all they see. When you spend more time reading newspapers and junk magazines instead of God’s Word, of course that’s all you’ll see! “Twelve shot dead.” “Fifty killed in boat mishap.” “Two hundred and seventy perish in plane crash.” Terrible I tell you, but the Bible says there’s good in the land; “If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land” (Isaiah1:19).
Irrespective of what your situation may be, the Word of God will always remain the same; it’ll never change. You may be living in the poorest nations of the world, however the Bible says there’s plenty of good right there for you to enjoy (1 Timothy 6:17). Moreover, you must be born again in order to qualify for the good of the land. You can have hope in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation. So don’t look down, cheer up! Don’t think death, think life
