Sometimes, turning on the news is discouraging. Chances are stories about hurricanes in the United States, the pending Brexit deal, and international trade wars will flash across the TV screen.
Hope in the Storm
Stories like these can make it feel like a storm is brewing. But Denise Godwin, president of International Media Ministries, says that regardless of the storm, Christians find their anchor in Christ.
“In times of challenge and storm, we go into a certain mode of preparation and covering our bases…But I look at the contrast of some of the religions of the world where people are seeking certainty or surety through actions. We have the amazing certainty in Jesus Christ,” Godwin says.
“No matter what happens to us, He is with us. He is walking with us through every storm.”
Godwin says many parts of the world do not have this certainty. When a storm comes, it can leave behind horrific consequences. Christians face these consequences, but they are not left without hope.
“We know that our soul is fine. It’s in the right place, we’ve got Christ with us, and we will survive the storms. Even as Paul said, ‘to die is gain, I’ll be with Christ’. There’s this certainty that other religions don’t have, no matter what the physical circumstances are,” Godwin explains.
