“In this world you will have trouble.”
Think of dwindling economy, job layoffs, bill pileups, hospital medications, relationship glitches, and deep heartaches. We see these happening all around us—even experience these ourselves. So much so that we might be thinking, ‘Are we still in the era of wars and conquests?’
Life IS a battle. Living with this fact, however, does not mean life has to be miserable.
“In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I HAVE overcome the world.”
That, from the One who commands the hosts of angels, who commands rain to pour forth and storm winds to be still—the very One who commanded this world to existence.
Jehovah Sabaoth. He afflicted Egypt with the severest of plagues to free the Israelites from miserable slavery… armed little David with a giant courage to slay mocking Goliath… and held the sun still to warrant Joshua’s victory against Canaan.
Jehovah Sabaoth. He beat the Pharisees with silence… defeated sin with His blood… and slayed death with His life.
Jehovah Sabaoth. He can grant you that most sought-after promotion… revive that failing business… prevail over that disease… and rebuild that waning relationship.
JEHOVAH SABAOTH. His was the voice that boomeranged into the empty universe, ‘Let there be’ and there was. And His is the same voice that whispers into your ear this very moment, ‘I care for you.’
Won’t you allow His mighty arms to lift you up from that dark pit you are in?
