Tell the righteous it will be well with them.
(Isaiah 3:10 NIV)
The children at church were all gladly singing “Jesus in My Life,” when one of the older kids stopped to ask, “What if everything is not OK?” “Well, what does the song say?” the teacher asked. “Everything’s Ok and everything’s alright ‘cos I got Jesus in my life,” answered another kid. “What if everything is still not OK?” insisted the older kid. “Then you don’t have Jesus in your life,” one of the younger kids told him.
We may laugh at the child’s bold response, but he got it right. Jesus didn’t promise us a trouble-free life. In fact, He did warn us that in this world we will have trouble, but He also encouraged us to take heart because He has overcome the world (John 16:33). And this is the same message that we find in today’s passage. During a time of disaster, God assured and encouraged the righteous that “it will be well with them” (Isaiah 3:10).
Do you have Jesus in your life? Then everything’s OK and everything’s alright.
Having Jesus in your life can make everything better.
