Jesus said unto him, if thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth (Mark 9:23).
As Jesus told of the signs of the end times in Luke 21:26, He explained: ‘’people will be so frightened that they will faint because of what is happening to the world…’’ (CEV). The events we see in the world today are indications of the gross darkness that has enveloped the world: Economic meltdown, health epidemic, wars, natural disasters and terrorism. These and more have taken their toll on many, with whole nations becoming bankrupt and completely at sea as to the way forward.
Though the scriptures declare that perilous times will come upon the earth, the believer in Christ is enjoined not to fret: ‘’These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world’’ (John 16:33). Refuse to allow your heart to be troubled by the many ills plaguing today’s world, for you’re not of this world! God has separated you from the world and give you a live beyond this world.
You’ll live victoriously and triumphantly above sickness, disease, inflation and all other negative influences if you’d simply live by God’s principles; His Word. That’s all He ask; that you only believe and live by His Word. His power is always available in His Word; and when you believe and act your faith, that power is activated to produce the results you desire. It therefore doesn’t matter the extent of the hardships in the world today; see them as opportunities for you to shine in a dark world.
Job 22:29 says, ‘’When men are cast down, then thou shalt say, There is lifting up…’’ There’s lifting up for you in Christ; so cheer up, for Christ in you is your hope of glory. When life looks dark and things seems impossible and difficult, hold your hand up high and declare, ‘’Christ in me, is my hope of victory in this situation!’’
Christ in me is my hope of a triumphant and glorious today, and an excellent and successful future because in Him I live, move, and have my being; my life is secure in Him who causes all things to work together for my good! Praise the Lord.
Mark 5:36; Mark 11:23
