In the face of the on going hazards, challenges and tragedies we have to deal with in this world, the call for hopelessness and despair is looming and seemingly inexorable but it is not as bleak as the enemy wants to make it look. We still have hope for a better life, a life of peace and tranquility, a life of joy in the midst of calamity.
We will come out of all that the enemy throws at us wiser and better, for God does not abandon us. If we look carefully and turn our eyes from the confusion and chaos, we will see that He is with us in the midst of it all, knowing, seeing, feeling… and helping. And this is a premise to keep our hopes alive and not despair!
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you, and through the rivers, they will not overwhelm you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned or scorched, nor will the flame kindle upon you. Isaiah 43:2
