Certainty In Uncertain Times

Hebrews 11:1 says "Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see."

We are living in times where there is a high degree of uncertainty. Politicians used to be respected and trusted, they were considered public servants. I am not sure there are many who would consider politics as an honourable profession. Doctors used to be more trusted and respected, now we are sceptical about whether we can trust their prescriptions. Journalism used to be an industry that would find the truth even if its unpopular, now so many have an angle and an agenda.

Now, we have this season where a virus has disrupted the world. And most of the time we just wanted to go about our life and love on young people.

I am reminded that our confidence is not in politicians, doctors, media, celebrities or even our pastors. Our confidence is in God. The unseen but ever present God. The loving God who came to earth as a man and lived through moments where things looked uncertain.

How do we stand with certainty during uncertain times? Because our hearts and mind are set on our God.

Ministry may look and feel different. Work may look and feel different. Relationships may look different in this season. Our God is still faithful.
