These days it can be easy to become discouraged when we look at the world around us. There is the threat of terrorism, unpredictable climate, new diseases, financial crises, and that is just the beginning. We also know that things on the world stage will not get any better but will actually worsen before Christ returns.
And yet…..God! He is there. He knows. He has a plan and He is not swayed by world events. God knows every little detail of what is going on, no surprises for Him. So when we put our trust in the LORD as the people of Israel were told to many times, we can indeed sing to Him a new song. The song can be one of hope for what the future holds. The song can also be of rejoicing because of the One who is indeed holding the future.
We have something to offer in this dark and troubled world. Let us live in such a way that we are seen as a people of hope and joy.
