Living out hope
We see the mass hysteria all around us. The media is freaking out. People on a wholesale basis are moving towards fear, anger, and hate. If you watch the political landscape, you are thinking that all hope is lost.
But we really have to be intentional in the way we walk our days while here on earth.
Check this out: “Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it” (Matt 7:24-27).
You see, if our foundation and our focus is not on things of an eternal nature, we are always going to gravitate towards fear, anger, and hate. And we will always look for an earthly king to save us.
Jesus is here to bring us redemption and hope! Stop looking for answers in men. Stay focused on living out your life according what God has called us to do. Be on mission. Share the Gospel. Be the hands and feet of Jesus Christ. Be salt and light to a dark and dying world, and when the storms of life come, the foundation is set, and you know who will continue to hold you even when things don’t look so good.
Trump is not our hope. Hillary is not our hope. Our only lasting and eternal hope is Jesus Christ, and when we put our trust and real hope in Him, everything else fades into the background.
Run free in this truth today, and let Jesus shape and mold your future no matter what happens in our country!
Jesus IS KING!
