Living in Dark & Dangerous Times

We live in a dangerous world. The pandemic has disrupted and even threatened our

lives for the last two years. War has erupted in Europe, and a nuclear-armed nation is

the aggressor. There is concern around the world about what might grow out of the

conflict in Ukraine. What if everything goes awry in the future? What if the pandemic

lingers on? What if war spreads and America is drawn into it? What if nuclear

weapons were used? These are dark, dangerous, and uncertain days.

Habakkuk lived in dangerous and uncertain days when much could go wrong. He wrote in Habakkuk 3:17-18, "Though the fig tree should not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines, the produce of the olive fails, and the fields yield no food, the flock be cut off from the fold and there be no herd in the stalls, yet I will take joy in the God of my salvation." Habakkuk reminds us that no matter what happens around us and, in the

world, we still have God's salvation and can rejoice in Him. Our hope is in the life,

death, and resurrection of Jesus. No circumstance can take that away, not even a

nuclear exchange. Even on the darkest day, our hope is in the Light of the World.
