There is, I think, a soberness over our country that reflects the spiritual troubles that face our nation. Our elections have not given us a very strong confidence in our national government’s intention or ability to cope with the moral decadence of same-sex marriage, abortion on demand, legalized gambling, etc. The economic picture for the U.S. and for the world is not good. Yet, there was good news from our recent elections. Voters in the states of Arizona, Florida, and California said NO to homosexual marriages!

In the midst of the great storm, Euroclydon, as the ship upon which the apostle Paul was a passenger was driven up and down in the Adriatic Sea, God sent His angel to assure him. Paul believed the angel and said to the other passengers, “Wherefore, sirs, be of good cheer: for I believe God, that it shall be even as it was told me.” Acts 26.

Our Lord has spoken to His people through His apostles and prophets. The language of victory resounds through the gospel to the church. “I am with you always … I will never leave thee nor forsake thee … The Lord is my helper … I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me … Thanks be to God which giveth us the victory … Be thou faithful unto death and I will give thee a crown of life … I know in whom I have believed …” With Paul I can say, Be of good cheer. I believe God, that it shall be even as it was told me.
