I came home yesterday full of hope. And then the negativity hit me square in the jaw. As states are opening up giving hope to so many the negative fear took over. Turn it off! Comments on social media and even friends took hold for a minute. We forget Satan uses negativity and misinformation to beat us down. I went to bed battle weary. But as I woke to start my day God guided me to His word. Jeremiah 29. Specifically verse 11.
Never in modern times has this word been more relevant than today. There are those that wish to destroy hope with negativity and fear. Our Hope is in Gods word and promises.
Jeremiah 29 (KJV)
11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
In Jeremiah 29 while the Israelites had been carried away by Babylon God gave them hope. He tells them to carry on Hope is there and He doesn’t want to cause them harm or despair. Don’t take away peoples hope. Don’t spread negativity and fear among those of us who want positivity and Hope. Gods word tells us what to do in times like these. I agree with the my pillow guy. Read your Bible and pray. Or as the sign on the Golden Corral says “be a light in this world”.
While reading Gods word a peace came over me. So get out there be a light in the world today. Don’t let negativity steal your hope and pray for those that are in desperation and lost.
God Bless All!
