Not a hair of your head will perish. Luke 21:18
I’m not as naive as I used to be…and Jesus certainly isn’t naive at all. But how can He say this? Terrible things happen to many who suffer for the name of Jesus.
Jesus is aware of the overwhelming physical and psychological damage that is done when families are torn apart and children, especially children, suffer unimaginable horrors for the sake the of the gospel. Yet He tells us plainly: The damage won’t last.
Here we enter into an arena that is way, way beyond me. Hardly a day goes by that I don’t pray for hurting and suffering people. Their pain is beyond my comprehension, yet God has it all in hand.
“Not a hair of your head will perish.” Nothing of importance will be lost. No one has the right to say this but the Savior who understands suffering, and who brings the message of the Father to all His children: It’s going to be okay.
PS. Somewhere between 25% and 50% of all adults are survivors of sexual abuse. In many ways it is the elephant in the room. On 7/6/2019 in Inner Wealth we look at 5 things every survivor of sexual abuse should know. In addition, I also address marriage and Inner Wealth, as well as other avenues of healing.
