Rejoice in Our Great Hope

8 We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; 9 persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; ~ 2 Corinthians 4:8-9

The world is a way different place today than it was yesterday. Things are changing daily. Our money is being devalued daily, causing prices to skyrocket. Christians are being persecuted around the world. Pastors and Christians are facing possible jail sentences for preaching the word of God that does not line up with the pushed narrative.

Life, in general, is getting harder and harder. It feels like we are being hard-pressed and forced into a corner. Well, I’m here to tell you that you might feel that way, but Jesus will not allow you to be crushed. He said He will never leave us and that He’s given us the hope of Him coming back for us. Therefore, we do not despair.

And the best of all, He will not let our enemies destroy us. They may persecute us. They may throw us in jail. They may confiscate our property. They may even kill us, but God will not let them destroy us. So, rejoice, for we have a great hope in the LORD.

LORD God, help me to rejoice in all situations. Help me to see the good in the bad, the joy in the despair, the light in the darkness. Help me to focus on Your plan for my life and not on the world or the things of the world. Strengthen me in my weakness, oh LORD God, and fill me with Your precious Holy Spirit that I might be able to stand on Your promises and in Your truth. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.
