Answer to World Peace

 Cast your burden on the Lord, and He shall sustain you; He shall never permit the righteous to be moved. Psalm 55: 22

Unless you have been living in a cave and completely out of touch, it’s impossible not to hear of all the horrible things happening in the world—wars, massive earthquakes, famines, tsunamis, terrorism, school shootings, robberies, murders, and on and on. The crime rate is higher than ever before, and it’s difficult to feel truly safe. And if that wasn’t enough, your internal stress-o-meter is higher than ever—trying to meet unrealistic goals and expectations from bosses, coworkers, friends, family, and even our spouses! It’s no mystery why so many people are turning to drugs and alcohol for a way of escape! However, numbing our senses and living a life of sin will not bring the peace and security we seek. Jesus is the only answer to world peace! We may not know what the future holds, but we do know who holds the future! When we are surrendered to our Lord and Savior, there is no need to worry and fret. God has it all under control! We can live each day with full confidence knowing our future is bright because we can trust in God’s perfect plan!
