The last several months have been laced with problems in the world and in our country. These problems have included the Covid 19 virus, unrest and violence in the streets, political backlashing, and an uncertain election result in the United States for days after election day. In addition to this many people are going through deep personal problems including serious illness, care of a loved one with a serious illness, job loss, an unstable family member, or a host of other personal trials.
It is easy at times like this to give into fear. Let's not forget, however, that God is in control. If you are a child of God, you need not give into fear. We have definitely experienced difficult times in these past months, but Christians who have gone before us also experienced very difficult trials. God was with them, and He will be with us as well. God has also brought us personally through difficult moments in the past, and He will continue to do so in the future.
Do not fear. In Hebrews 13:5b God says to us, "Never will I leave you, never will I forsake you." The path may be difficult, but He will never forsake us. Let's trust that promise.
