I’ve watched over the last few weeks, along with the rest of the country, as two young children from different states were taken and ultimately found dead, while a teenage girl is still missing, and as 80 thousand people are fleeing their homes to avoid a raging wildfire. On and on goes more frightening news. There are more than 40 active conflicts around the world at the moment. Not to mention the approximately 332,197 robberies and 17,000 murders a year in the US. There is no doubt we live in a dangerous and scary world. It’s no wonder that we are the most anxious, medicated population that has ever lived. God offers a solution. Listening to His words and living by them does not keep us from all risk. It gives us the confidence of knowing that nothing enters our story without first coming though Him, and finding Him with us when trouble arrives. That gives us peace, confidence and security. Who couldn’t use more of that in today’s world? Today look to God as the author of your journey and find confidence in that while you watch Him write the next chapter.
