What’s going on with the world? I hear so much concern about the economy, about what our President is doing, and various other stories that are shaded with fear and hopelessness. The problem isn’t so much that these stories are being spun (even being spun out of control at times), but rather the way that we as Christians respond to this news. There may be big problems in the world, but the the bigger problem is our attitudes towards the challenges we face! When everyone else is talking about how bad things are getting, believers are called to see above the cloudiness and change things!
I believe that God has given us a corporate mandate, and that we all have a role in shifting the culture we’re currently in. When we’re faced with a big problem, all we need is just a little faith. Whatever faith you have, activate it. Here are four things to put your faith towards, and I want to encourage you to believe that:
1. There’s going to be a future and a hope.
2. Nothing is impossible with God.
3. You’ve been given supernatural power that can change the future.
4. The redemptive nature of God rescues the world from it’s own devices and saves the world from the fruit of sin.
I hope this video encourages you to partner with the kingdom inside of you and respond with hope instead of reacting with fear, to see mountains as molehills and cast them into the ocean!
We all have a role to play in culture change and whenever you’re faced with a problem I want to challenge you to ask the question, “What does God think of all of this?” Do you think He’s in heaven pacing up and down with a furrowed brow just desperate to see if things are going to work out okay? Not at all! There is no situation that God looks at without hope. He’s the author of redemption and He’s the most powerful person I know. This should create great hope in our hearts for the miraculous ways that God will show up in our finances, our cities and our countries. In a time when people are hungering for hope, will you be a catalyst for others to encounter God? How can you be a part of molding the culture we’re living in?
