Isaiah 38:1: In those days was Hezekiah sick unto death. And Isaiah the prophet the son of Amoz came unto him, and said unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Set thine house in order: for thou shalt die, and not live.
Meditation: Breaking News….…Stock Market drops 1234 points, millions wiped
out…I’ve just received the news from the doctor….it’s cancer and it’s terminal…….I’ve been meaning to tell you, I want a divorce…….Sir, your son was in an accident today……..Mom, I can’t talk very loud, there’s an active shooter in our school…….Honey, I just backed the car into our neighbors car. And so it goes! Life is fraught with bad news and if it isn’t bad news then it’s fake! What we need is a hefty dose of Good News!
For I am not ashamed of the gospel (good news) of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
The Good News doesn’t stop the bad news from coming but once we receive Christ as our Savior, our ability to handle the bad news changes fundamentally! We are now children of the One who’s in control of all events and we know that all things are for our good and His Glory!
Prayer: Thank you heavenly Father for the assurance that come what may, I’m in the hollow of Your hand and I have nothing to fear! Amen!
