What I read today;
Hebrews 3; John 8; Jeremiah 8; Psalm 42; 1 Samuel 25; Exodus 27
It’s easy to become depressed and despondent when we see the headlines every day.
- A hurricane just destroyed parts of the Bahamas.
- 3 Mass shootings
- Death of a young boy from child abuse
- Gang violence in Chicago
It just never ends. We grieve for the state of our society. We wonder why God doesn’t do something. We wait for sanity that never arrives.
as Psalm 42 says our souls long for God. We wish he’d come now and take us away from this crazy world and give us eternal rest for our souls. We want to see the sign of Jesus in the sky that signals the end of all this madness.
But it’s not time yet.
So the Psalmist leaves us with these parting words:
“Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my help and my God.” NRSV
Continue to praise our mighty God. He knows what is happening and his plans are perfect. In the midst of the madness, souls are coming to Christ. In the chaos, God is finding those who are his.
Praise God and continue to thirst after him! He will not let you down!
