You don’t need me to tell you that we live in difficult times. Any day’s newspaper or newscast is evidence enough. Maybe the worst story of the week is the story that came out of Waycross, Georgia. Just when you think you have heard it all, you hear this story of the 11 third graders who plotted to kill their teacher. They made assignments right down to the person who was going to clean up.
You don’t need me to tell you that we live in uncertain times. You don’t need me to tell you that we live in an age when it seems that we are moving farther and farther away from God and His Word. But, perhaps, you do need me to show you in God’s Word that as believers we need not be overwhelmed.
