We live in uncertain times. Fear and anxiety roam through the land. Your business may go bankrupt, or profits are down, and competitors are knocking at your customer’s door. Health issues. Struggle.
It happens to everyone at least once. Here is the difference: where most panic and fear, thinking only of the negative, we have a certainty as Christians.
We’re not alone.
I was reading Jeremiah the other day and two verses stuck out to me during a period of nervousness. They were about not turning away from God and relying on human strength. Instead, make God your hope and confidence.
“This is what the Lord says:
“Cursed are those who put their trust in mere humans,
who rely on human strength
and turn their hearts away from the Lord.
But blessed are those who trust in the Lord
and have made the Lord their hope and confidence.”
Jeremiah 17:5,7 NLT
In good times and bad, you’re not alone. Make God your hope and confidence.
