Have you ever felt like everyday, you step out into a world that is so foreign, wild, and probably dangerous? Society is most definitely a jungle now, a dog-eat-dog kind of environment where everyone is fighting their way to survive and surpass others in status, wealth, class – almost everything!
There are so many factors that make up the jungle of our lives. Failing health, broken hearts, and most commonly empty wallets. Instead of hearing the birds sing and the lions roar, we hear bad news, complaints of neighbors, and demands of bosses.
You may feel like a traveller who has lost his path in the middle of nowhere, but have comfort knowing that you have a rescuer who is always ready to point you to the right direction- Jesus.Your career may be in jeopardy, your family may be going through a financial crisis, Cancer may have hit one of your family members, but amidst all of these, Jesus is our ever present help. When we need comfort, He uses people to keep us company. When our health is deteriorating, He uses skilled doctors to help treat us.
Take heart and have hope in Christ that He will lead you out of the jungle you are in right now. Have faith that even though the world’s problems may eclipse our vision, God is the light at the end of the tunnel, and Christ is the torch that illuminates and directs our steps.
