There’s a fast-growing cancer just under the surface of this world. It used to be held in check by a country known as the land of the free and the home of the brave. But the cancer is spreading like the western wildfires even in America. And there seems to be no cure. But I’d like to suggest that maybe God is the answer.
It sounds old-fashioned. But maybe God IS the answer.
And when I say “maybe,” I mean…wake up people! He IS the answer. The only lasting solution. None of our puny human efforts can hold a candle to what God can, and will, do.
But that doesn’t mean we don’t need to do anything.
Of course, people who love God, who love Jesus, should be salt and light in this tasteless, dark world. Because there will come a time when even our small amounts of salt and light will be removed from the planet.
And then…it’s gonna get bad for anyone still here. And when I say “bad,” I mean bad on a level that makes everything currently going in the world seem like a Sunday picnic.
So, let’s say you’re a Christian. And you’re looking at the world and starting to get a feeling of despair. If so, I encourage you to take a moment to meditate on God’s word. And think about what it means when He says “Be anxious for nothing.” When Paul wrote that to the Philippians, it was to give them the
“Peace of God.”
If you’re not feeling that peace, even as this dark cancer spreads across the world, I’d suggest that maybe you’re leaning on your own understanding. And you’ll do much better to trust God’s word as it “surpasses all understanding.”
Maybe God can give you peace inside your mind.
But you’ll need to search His word so you can find
What He wants for you to know as your feelings come and go.
It’s your doubts, and not your soul, you’ll leave behind.
