It astounds me that, here we are a full year later, and COVID is still messing with us.  People are still getting sick, restrictions are still in place… who’s in control here, anyway?  I know that I’ve encouraged people to wear masks, and I understand why people are resistant to them.  The truth be told, I don’t like them any more than you do.  It is my sincere hope that this will all be a bad memory by next year.

But… let’s not get side tracked.  We’re now fully into the Advent season.  In fact, this is the second Sunday of Advent, the Sunday of Hope.  But what do we hope in?  The world is spinning out of control, a virus continues to make a mess of things, we’re all really tired of all of it.

Then… I remember who’s in control.  Our God is in control.  There’s nothing happening that’s surprising to Him.  In fact, we can trust that He’s using this mess for His purposes and for His glory… whether we understand or not.

How can we get on board with His program?  I’m guessing that you can predict where I’m going with this.  We pray about it.  The Scriptures tells us to bring our needs, our concerns, even our hurts, to Him in prayer… and then leave them in His care.  When we do that, He promises to give us peace.  But… we have to do our part.  We bring them to Him AND LEAVED THEM THERE.  We trust that He’s got it.

We can do this because we KNOW who’s in control.  God is, and because of that, we have a hope that transcends the problems.  As we move through this week, pray about your situation, and your response to it.  Is your life permeated with the hope that Jesus brings?  It should be, our home is somewhere else, our hope is in something more than what this world offers.  Pray about it and see what Jesus does.
