The thing is, the world has always been a mess. The temptation is to look at the headlines and think things are so much worse today, but the kingdoms of this world have always been opposed to the kingdom of the Lord and of His Christ. At times that opposition has been overt, and at times it has been covert, but it has always been. It is just more apparent that it is so, these days, than we are used to seeing.
But the same God who was our Father yesterday is our Father today, and will be tomorrow. He is on His throne, as He has always been. He is bringing His plans and His purposes to pass, and no madman or devil can alter that fact, no matter how hard they try. No madman or devil can snatch us out of the Father’s hand, either. We are safe, no matter our circumstances.
The best thing we can do in times like these, is to press in to Him. To lay aside every weight and sin that so easily besets us, to purify ourselves, and follow hard after Him. To learn His Word, His ways, His truth, and apply it in our lives. To spend time worshiping and praising the greatness of our God, every day, not just once or twice a week in church. For He is good, and His mercy endures forever!
For only He is able to deliver our foot from the snare of the fowler, and to keep our steps from slipping. So let us trust in the Lord with all our hearts, and lean not on our own understanding. In ALL our ways, let us acknowledge (take knowledge) of Him, and He shall direct our paths. Even in these times also.
