When Things Seem Most Desperate, It Could Mean Good News!

MOST PEOPLE PANIC … when a situation gets desperate. But it could actually be a signal that something good is about to happen — if you know how to take the next step. Let’s talk!

THE BIBLE SAYS …

Peter was in a hopeless situation. He was in King Herod’s prison. King Herod had already killed the Apostle James and intended to kill Peter next. But there was something else going on just out of sight.

The Church was praying fervently for Peter, and apparently, God was listening. The angel of the Lord rescued Peter from certain death. It’s a great story. And the truly remarkable thing is, God hasn’t changed. He’s the same yesterday, today, and forever (Heb 13:8).

THE CATECHISM TELLS US …

According to the Catechism, the whole life of the Church benefits from the mysterious and powerful help of angels (CCC #334). In her liturgy, the Church joins with the angels to adore the thrice-holy God (CCC #335). There is a very active relationship in the Kingdom of God between the angels in heaven and the members of the Church established by Jesus Christ.

THE CHALLENGE TODAY …

The world seems out of control. Pandemics. Riots. Burning. Looting. A press (media) that can no longer be trusted for telling a complete and unbiased account of the news. A Church that seems in turmoil too. It’s a lot for an ordinary person to contend with. But there is hope.

WHAT’S NEXT …

God is still in control. Jesus is still on the throne. And the angels still await to be dispatched on behalf of a fervently praying Church. The next step is yours!

Pray! Wrestle with God in prayer until you get the blessing from Him that you are seeking (Gen 32:24-31). When it seems most hopeless, that’s the exact time when victory could be just around the corner.
