ALL IS NOT LOST

Several years ago, The Saturday Evening Post ran a cartoon showing a man about to be rescued after he had spent a long time ship-wrecked on a tiny deserted island. The sailor in charge of the rescue team stepped onto the beach and handed the man a stack of newspapers. “Compliments of the Captain,” the sailor said. “He would like you to glance at the headlines to see if you’d still like to be rescued!” Sometimes the headlines do scare us. Sometimes we feel that evil is winning.

I’m reminded of 1 John 5:19, “We know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in the evil one” [or, lies in the power of the evil one – ESV]. Friends, while evil seems to be taking over our world we need to remember, “We are of God, my little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world” (1 Jn. 4:4). All is not lost, “For whatsoever is begotten of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that hath overcome the world, even our faith” (1 Jn. 5:4).

Beloved it is our faithful obedience to God and His will that assures us of the ultimate victory. “These things have I spoken unto you, that in me ye may have peace. In the world ye have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world” (Jn. 16:33). In this great world of evil we need more trust in God and more righteous action on our part.

Instead of having the “Chicken Little” mentality – let’s have great faith in God.

Think About It!

Have A Great Day!
