Many are saying the recession is over. It certainly doesn't look like it. I see so many people who have lost their jobs recently. The recession isn't over for them. They need some good news.
I hear from a lot of people who are having trouble with in their families. There are wives whose husbands have left them. There are children who are giving their parents and grandparents trouble. There are struggles with drugs, sex and alcohol which is tearing families apart. They need some good news.
The stock market is going up and down like a yo-yo. No one knows if his retirement is safe. No one knows what health care's future will be. All of us need some good news.
The people in Haiti are going through hell on earth. They have had an earthquake completely destroy their country. Some report 150,000 people having already died. They are in need of just about everything. They need some good news.
Does God have good news in the midst of the bad? Yes, of course. He says that there are promised bad times but that He has overcome it all. This means that all the bad news in temporary. I suppose that is what we all need to hear in the middle of bad news. The bad news will not last because there is One who has overcome the bad.
Share this with someone today. The bad times won't last. There is a morning to the night. There is calm to the storm.
This is the good news for today.
John 16:33 (ESV)
33 I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”
