When we observe everything that’s going on in the world, it’s tempting to despair that the world is becoming a darker and darker place. 🌒

But friends, God wants to encourage us that the light shines EVEN BRIGHTER in the darkness! ☀️

And He assures us that where sin increases, grace increases SO MUCH MORE! (Romans 5:20) ❤️

Where the number of people who are denying and rejecting their faith are increasing, the number of people boldly standing for and defending their faith are increasing MUCH MORE! ☀️

Where the number of people who are violently antagonistic toward God are increasing, the number of people who are desperately running into the arms of the Father are increasing MUCH MORE! ☀️

Where people’s confusion about their identity in the world is increasing, people’s revelation of their identity in Christ is increasing MUCH MORE! ☀️

Where demonstrations of anger, hatred, and pride are increasing, demonstrations of the overwhelming love of Jesus are increasing MUCH MORE! ☀️

Where manifestations of wickedness, godlessness and evil are increasing, manifestations of the power of the Holy Spirit are increasing MUCH MORE! ☀️

Where fear, terror, and dread of things to come are increasing, hope, excitement, and earnest expectation of THE ONE to come are increasing MUCH MORE! ☀️

Instead of giving our attention to the all negative things that are going on around us which bring us NO LIFE, let’s continue to pray fervently for the world and focus on things that are pure, lovely, excellent and motivate us to give God praise! (Phil 4:8)😇🙏🏼🙌🏼

The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness WILL NOT OVERCOME IT! (John 1:5) ☀️🌖 #faithtalks
