Jehovah Sabaoth, the Lord of Hosts
“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.
