The Lord has made known His salvation; His righteousness He has revealed in the sight of the nations. Psalm 98:2
Having problems is common to everyone, however, finding a solution to the problem is often very difficult. The world can see many different problems that people face all over the world and are seeking ways to solve those problems. There is a common recognition that the world may not last forever. Everyone has different thoughts on what to do. Various things are tried, with every solution the world finds are failing at some point or another to accomplish their desire.
During a time of praise, the psalmist writes that God has made known His salvation and righteousness to the nations.
Throughout the world there is often a feeling of hopelessness and doomsday thinking. Violence is seen everywhere. Sickness abounds more and more. Natural storms appear to be larger than ever. People are seeking purpose for their lives. Suicide is rising to cope with the lack of hope. And ultimately, everyone will die.
The world is seeking to be like God and provide the answers to everything, to live forever, yet are falling short and failing.
Nearly two thousand years ago, God provided a Hope that the world can have. Despite the sin of mankind, God has provided a way to remove that sin and give every person life, abundant and eternal life. This was not done is secret or only to a select few people, but in a time and place for the world to see and know.
Jesus died on the cross and rose from the dead to reveal God’s plan of salvation for every person. While the majority of the world rejects God’s plan of salvation in Jesus, there are many who have chosen to believe, repent of their sins and are saved.
In your life, there are probably many things that occur that do not make sense. You may be seeking to find purpose in your life and to be rescued from the chaos and troubles of this world.
God loves you more than you will ever know or fully understand. With that great love, He has provided a way of salvation in spite of the chaos of this fallen world. He has revealed it in Jesus. Forgiveness and salvation is available through belief in Jesus. There is a hope and salvation that you can have.
Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Lord and Savior; that you will believe in the work of Jesus upon the cross; that you will know the salvation God has made for you; and that you will know the abundant life God has for you.
