Being an overcomer in times like these

Daily Thought

Your Word for 24 May 2024

Isaiah 49:16
‘See, I have engraved you on the palms of My hands…’

There is so much going on in the world today. There is so much insecurity and instability. The Lord had been speaking to me about ‘TRUSTING HIM’ and I never realized to what degree people would be called upon to trust Him.  We have got high oil prices, high interest rates, high inflation, high crimes rates and the list goes on and on.
The question is: ‘What should our response be?’  It is at times like these that people battle with many things.  It could be fear, worry, distress, anxiety and even depression.  But the Bible contains many records of people who faced disappointment and challenge and yet came out on the other side as overcomers.
I would like to encourage you to read the story of Paul and Silas in Acts 16:16-30.
