Over time there have always been stories heard of fierce and awful things that were occurring in countries far beyond our America, the Land of the Free. There was a sense of security in knowing that we were safe here in our own homeland; but sadly, the ever increasing sense of evil that has begun to invade our country is progressing daily and can leave us with feelings of insecurity and fear if we lose sight of the source of our strength.
“The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?” Psalm 27:1
“Thou art my hiding place and my shield: I hope in thy word.” Psalm 119:114
Our hope is found in the surety of God’s Word. Down through time He prepared a Book that contains all of the words that He knew we would need for today. Words that provide evidence of His power and might, reminders that we are not alone in our fight. He gave His Word unto man and commanded it be written in the pages of the Book.
“Thus speaketh the Lord God of Israel, saying, Write thee all the words that I have spoken unto thee in a book.” Jeremiah 30:2
Even though there have been those who tried their best to destroy God’s Word, He preserved it. “So mightily grew the word of God and prevailed.” Acts 19:20
Many things may come and go, but God’s Word is one thing that will never be destroyed. It will always remain as our hope and source of strength.
“The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.” Isaiah 40:8
When we find our strength wavering, we need only stop and go to His Word to find reassurance that none of what is happening around us is beyond His control. He has already shared with us the ending of the story, we simply must remain focused on the Author.
“My soul fainteth for thy salvation: but I hope in thy word.” Psalm 119:81
“Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:2
No matter what comes our way, stay focused on the Author, because He’s already written the end of the story.
