An Unshakeable Truth

January 21, 2024 Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth

“With flattery he will corrupt those who act wickedly toward the covenant, but the people who know their God will be strong and take action.” —Daniel 11:32

On any given day, it can feel like our world is spinning out of control, that evildoers are winning, and that God is helpless (or unwilling) to do anything about it.

On a more personal level, it may seem that God is dismissive toward your situation, sluggish to act, even coldly unconcerned about matters weighing heavily on your mind and heart, difficulties that distract and distress you and sabotage your joy. But for those who “know their God” (Dan. 11:32), not even the most dreaded, drastic, or deathly occurrences can steal their hope and confidence in Him. All will be well, even though at the moment nothing seems to be well.

This truth is unshakable, despite any and all indications to the contrary. Even when storms are raging within and around us, you and I can sleep in peace each night, and each morning we can awaken to renewed comfort and courage because of this immutable, irrefutable reality. Because Heaven rules.

Make it Personal

Have you ever had a time when it seemed like God wasn’t intervening in a painful situation? Looking back, how can you see Heaven’s rule?
