While it may seem that all hope is lost for this world, do not dismay. The Lord encourages us to hold onto our faith, and he rewards those who hold steady. We have a different perspective on the challenges of this day than those without hope in the Lord; our outlook is exhilarating! Sometimes we get so hung up on the adverse circumstances that we forget to notice the promises the Lord is fulfilling. Relax. Continue to obey Jesus's command to go and tell the world. However, if you cannot go yourself, you can focus on the unsaved around you; hopefully, the seed you plant will grow before it's too late.
If you need some encouragement, read Isaiah 26. For the saved, Isaiah is sweet candy for our lips and easy to devour. As for those who oppress the faithful, it is sour grapes! Sit back, eat your popcorn, and enjoy what's unfolding before our eyes!
Your dead shall live; their bodies shall rise. You who dwell in the dust, awake and sing for joy! For your dew is a dew of light, and the earth will give birth to the dead. Come, my people, enter your chambers, and shut your doors behind you; hide yourselves for a little while until the fury has passed by. For behold, the LORD is coming out from his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity, and the earth will disclose the blood shed on it, and will no more cover its slain. Isaiah 26:19-21
