Why? Why do we allow our hearts such distress concerning the evil days in which we live? Plots and schemes are being carried out against God's people across our nation. The Air Force Academy forbids Scripture being posted, crosses that mark the place of accident victims are being removed. Christians are persecuted around the globe and the efforts to silence their voices is at a fevered pitch.
But God knows what is happening. In fact, he laughs about it. Oh, if only we would have such faith in God that we could laugh at the wickedness of men. Let us not cringe when such days come, when evil schemes seem to flourish, for we have more hope than can be measured. Our hope cannot be stolen. God, Himself, would have to be destroyed before my hope is lost!
Take refuge in God and you will know a security that can never be breached by the schemes of men.
"The salvation of the righteous comes from the LORD; he is their stronghold in time of trouble. The LORD helps them and delivers them; he delivers them from the wicked and saves them, because they take refuge in him." ~ Psalm 37:39-40
