There are times when we find ourselves trapped in a dark room with no escape. But during such situations, we should never overlook the fact that God knows the future. He is there to help His children. So never lose hope.
“I have put my hope in your word”, in Psalm 119:81 “… I have put my hope in your word”, and in Psalm 130:5 “… in his word (The Bible) I put my hope”. (Psalm 119:74)
Pastor Chris Oyakhilome– a well-known preacher conveyed a message, i.e., ‘The Only Hope in The World’. Here it is.
“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 fool proof as they thought. Fraud, terrorist attacks, wars and rumours 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 is 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 is 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 I tell you, but the Bible says there is 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 do not look down, cheer up! Do not think about death, think life”.
