Have you ever known a time when there was such widespread uncertainty? People today, are uncertain about their jobs, finances, travel, health and vaccines. They are uncertain about how new laws, mandates and ideologies will change their lives, and society, in general.

Christians are uncertain about how our churches, businesses and Christian schools, will operate in the future. In the middle of all this, there has been a great casting off of God’s standards. Evil is called good, and good is called evil   ( Isaiah 5:20 ). The current state of society, is causing great concern for many Christians right across our nation.

So how do you and I respond to all of this?

In times of great political change, major cultural transformation and social upheaval we are seeing today, we need to remember that God is in control.

This is of great comfort to Christians. God knows his people and he cares for them. History, and God’s word, have shown this to be. God will not leave or forsake us. We can be absolutely certain about this. There is not one square inch of all of creation, which God is not sovereign. He governs ALL THINGS, including governments. Daniel 2:21 tells us – He changes times & seasons, deposes kings and sets up kings. The apostle Paul says in Romans 13:1 – There is no authority, except from God, and those authorities that exist, have been instituted by God.

God can’t be shut out of government. It dosen’t matter whether those in government have no faith, because God is in government. He always has been.

As Christians, we are saints in Christ, striving to become more like Christ. During these times of trial, keep your focus on him. He will sustain you. You are his chosen people.

Some verses from God’s word to help you, as you strive to be like him, and to be an example to others in this world:-

Romans 1:7, 1 Corinthians 1:1-2, Hebrews 3:1, Colossians 3:12, 1 Peter 1:2
