Every morning Nathan and I turn on our tv and watch the morning news. It seems like since the first of the year there has been turmoil all over the world! The wars, protests, now Earthquakes, Tsunamis, and now possibly nuclear meltdowns. I looked at before and after satellite pictures of Japan from before and after all the disasters and it made me sick to see all the destruction. I also just read an article on MSN about oil prices. They are going down because of all the craziness, but the article also said that they would soon go up ever more because of these disasters with the nuclear power stations in Japan that they would rely even more on oil to power things there which would cause more demand, which would then cause higher prices, which would then cause higher EVERYTHING prices. As if it wasn't bad enough already?!
All these things can be very scary, and depressing. But I do not think it is coincidence that our Pastor preached on this very thing Sunday morning. We can have peace in all this trouble! Does that mean that we will not have to pay the higher prices and not sacrifce things to pay for necessities? Nope. Does that mean that this turmoil will not effect us in any way? Nope. But it does mean that we can trust that we have a higher power taking care of us. We have hope because the Word of God says that God will supply all our needs because his supply in heaven is limitless! We can have peace in the fact that our Father in heaven has the power to work miracles for his children.
So, dont be discouraged by all this mess the world is in. If you are a child of God, HE has your back. If you not a follower of Christ, and you are trying to find peace in other things, I can tell you that those things cannot satisfy you or give you what your looking for. Only Jesus Christ can. Surrender to him today. He's got your back!
