If you observe the trend in the world today, it’s as though man has finally descended into the deepest depth of corruption, moral decadence and wickedness. Amidst all these, however, the Bible assures us of victory. We are not subject to the circumstances of this world; we are born of the Spirit of God.
We need to learn to think smartly and wisely because of the day we’re living in. We need to realise that the corruption, insincerity and wickedness around us aren’t any problem for us; we must see them as opportunity. “Opportunity for what?” you ask. They are your opportunity to show forth the glory of your heavenly Father. Remember, if there was no Goliath, there would have been no David.
The Word of God would always prevail; it will triumph in any system of government. So never think the government policies or unfavourable economic conditions are designed to destroy you. If you live by the Word of God, there’s no government policy or economic system on earth that can beat you. Jesus described the people of His day as serpents and a generation of vipers. (Matthew 23:33). Surely, these people must have been very decadent, because you don’t call good people serpents. They even conspired to kill Him. That sounds like what’s happening today, doesn’t it?
You have to realise that the darker the night, the more brightly your light shines. Don’t become like them or talk like them, and don’t succumb to their way of doing business. The more the evil and the corruption, the brighter your light shines. Jesus said you are the salt of the earth, and again He said, “ Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid” (Matthew 5:14).
