HOPE EVEN IN THE DARKNESS

HOPE EVEN IN THE DARKNESS

REGARDLESS OF HOW GRIM your situation may look—either in your own family or in your community—repentance and faith in God, powered by confidence in His Word, can bring hope to the darkest of days.  That is the lesson of King Josiah (2Kings 22:19).

You experience Gods truth in your family as you apply His Word repeatedly.  When God blesses your faith and obedience, in both trials and triumphs, you will see changes in your family.  Following Christ will not be some sacred theory or once-a-week tradition, but a day-by-day experience with the living Creator of the Universe.  What could be more thrilling than praying for needs as a family and then watching those prayers get answered?

And when you make choices and decisions based on the absolute standard of Scripture, there will be benefits: Peace, harmony, and hope.  When you embrace and proclaim God’s truth, your convictions take root and emerge.  When someone proclaims publicly that which he embraces privately, he takes a hugh step toward maturity and godliness.  No longer  is he satisfied with seeing God work in his life and family; now he becomes a soldier for truth; a conduit of love, grace, and life change in others.

What challenge are you facing today that demands that you embrace God’s Word, step out, and proclaim publicly what you believe?
