“Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the commandment of God our Saviour, and Lord Jesus Christ, which is our hope; Unto Timothy, my own son in the faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord.” (1Tim. 1:1-2).
“The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble. And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, LORD, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.” (Psa. 9:9-10).
We have such hope when we, who know Jesus Christ, put our trust in Him. He is a place of safety in a troubled world. Actually He is the only place that is safe. He is our solid Rock. When we know this and believe it the cares of the world do not seem quite so daunting because we know where we can put our trust.
