When I listen to or read the news, it is common to hear about all the bad things that are happening in one’s community, country, or the world. When I hear about them, my heart fills with compassion and concern. However, it is important to remember that no matter how much evil there is in the world, there is actually more good. We just don’t hear about it as much because people are too busy enjoying the good and no one ever complains about the good. Sometimes I meet people who, with travail, lament, “The world is such a horrible place.” But I want to remind you that there is also so much good in the world…fix your eyes on Jesus and spend the energy of your heart focusing on His triumph and praying for the world. Don’t let evil distract you from the triumph of God.
God’s Word says, “They will wage war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will triumph over them because He is Lord of lords and King of kings—and with him will be his called, chosen and faithful followers.” (Revelation 17:14). Jesus is The Lamb. He is Lord of all. Trust Him. Trust in His triumph over all.
