Today, we open our eyes and are faced with unprecedented circumstances. Our nation, society and culture are crippled with unrest and tinged with darkness. On the surface level, it seems unsalvageable. Nations rage, tensions soar. All light is seemingly lost. Lies are accepted while the truth is silenced. Darkness is appealing while light is rejected. In this day and age, we need to re-direct our focus to the One who reigns over the horizon. The One who parted the sea for His children. The One who breaks the bow and shatters the spear and makes wars cease to the ends of the earth. We must remember who God is. He is our salvation, our kinsman redeemer, our provider and, most importantly- our protector. We see His redemptive pattern throughout the history of time. When it is most dark- He uses it as an opportunity to pierce through opposition with His pure light. John 1:5 tells us that, ”The light shines in the darkness- and the darkness has not overcome it.”Jesus is the light of the world. He is the God of peace that has crushed darkness and Satan under His feet. Therefore, do not be discouraged when you turn on the news. Do not be dismayed by what you see on social media. Our God is El Shaddai, the "all-sufficient One". He turns impossible situations into redeemed realities. He cleanses the leper, resurrects the dead and sets the captives free. Fear not. Change is here. Revival is here. Our Savior is here, protecting His children and equipping them for revival. Have confidence and walk in triumph in the one who is Victor over all.
