There’s a lot of darkness in this world. There is violence and hate and lies and murder and deception. It can all be pretty overwhelming at times and it seems like it just keeps getting worse. But, we should never lose hope, no matter how bad it looks.
The Hope of the World
And his name will be the hope of all the world.
Matthew 12:21 NLT
No matter how bad it seems, no matter how strong the darkness, Jesus can overcome it all. His holiness is greater than all the darkness the Enemy can muster. He is the hope of all the world!
You see there are things going on that are not seen with human eyes. Yes, it appears that evil is winning in this world. It seems that the devil is getting the upper hand. But, that is not the whole story.
So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
2 Corinthians 4:18 NIV
This surge of evil is temporary. It is fleeting. As Christ Followers, we are living in a foreign land. One that is often dominated by darkness. But, we have someone on our side that is eternal light. When the time is right, He will shine His light into the darkness and destroy it all. For now, if you will let Him, Jesus will shine his light into your heart and give you hope.
A Light Shines in the Darkness
The people who walk in darkness will see a great light. For those who live in a land of deep darkness, a light will shine. Isaiah 9:2 NLT
Never lose hope! We have a Savior that is greater than all the darkness. Fix your eyes on the light, the bright Morning Star, and help spread His light to all the world so that it overcomes the darkness.
