Cheer up! Take courage, if you are depending on the Lord. Psalm 31 24. When we look around and see what is going on in the world, this verse can seem impossible to live out. For many, this verse may seem impossible to fathom.
No doubt, there is sickness, death, loss of income, social discord, and loss of wages. Yet, we can still choose to believe that we are not alone in any of it. We, who depend on God, can be determined to have cheer and remain courageous. The same God who was with us before is the same God who will see us through all that is taking place.
Ye are of God, little children, and have over come them: because greater is He in you, than He in the world. 1 John 4:4 I have told you this so that you will have peace by being united to me. The world will make you suffer. But be brave! I have defeated the world! John 16:33
