The Only Hope in the World
Thou art my hiding place and my shield: I hope in thy word” (Psalm 119:114). People are discovering today that the systems and institutions of the world in which they felt secure, are not as full proof as they thought. Fraud, terrorist attacks, wars and rumors of wars have put the so-called ‘world peace’ under constant threat. Natural disasters and outbreak of new diseases that defy medical science are constant reminders that there’s little or no hope in the world in these times of great distress.
But thank God that irrespective of what the situation may be, there’s hope in the Word for you today. The reason most folks only experience the ‘bad’ of the land is that that’s all they see. When you spend more time reading newspapers and junk magazines instead of God’s Word, of course that’s all you’ll see! “Twelve shot dead.” “Fifty killed in boat mishap.” “Two hundred and seventy perish in plane crash.” Terrible, but the Bible says there’s good in the land; “If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land” (Isaiah1:19).
Irrespective of what your situation may be, the Word of God will always remain the same; it’ll never change. You may be living in the poorest nations of the world, however the Bible says there’s plenty of good right there for you to enjoy (1 Timothy 6:17). Moreover, you must be born again in order to qualify for the good of the land. You can have hope in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation. So don’t look down, cheer up! Don’t think death, think life.

God's Word is my driving force.I am propelled and convinced that all I need to ensure I have a successful and victorious life, is to hold on to the Word of God. This is my only hope.

My Hope comes from the Lord. For in him I live, and move, and have my being.

I do not waste my time with the worldly news the Bible is more accurate than any news report! God has shown and told us what we need to know. It is our job to use that information correctly! Glory to God!
