Crisis ahead!

Tuesday, August 2, 2011 (3:30 am)

by George Whitten, Editor of Worthy Devotions.

Galatians 6:9-10 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.

As we've been watching the news recently, it seems the word of the hour is crisis! It seems everywhere we turn we hear it — it's a "financial crisis", a "political crisis" — international, environmental, spiritual crisis!

I came across an interesting fact recently. The Chinese word for crisis is composed of two symbols. They represent two words: danger and opportunity.  Hmm. I like that.

When we're in the midst of all these crises, it's tempting to focus on the danger. While it's important to be aware of the danger, we must be even more keenly aware of the opportunities it brings!

God is allowing this world to be shaken a little today. Let's prepare ourselves to be a means of peace and light and strength to those who are afraid. Let's not grow weary in well doing – there's so much work to be done!

    Hope Eternal

    When the waves of death compassed me, the floods of ungodly men made me afraid;The sorrows of hell compassed me about; the snares of death prevented me;In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried to my God: and he did hear my voice out of his temple, and my cry did enter into his ears.Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations of heaven moved and shook, because he was wroth.There went up a smoke out of his nostrils, and fire out of his mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it.He bowed the heavens also, and came down; and darkness was under his feet.
    And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: and he was seen upon the wings of the wind.And he made darkness pavilions round about him, dark waters, and thick clouds of the skies.Through the brightness before him were coals of fire kindled.The LORD thundered from heaven, and the most High uttered his voice.And he sent out arrows, and scattered them; lightning, and discomfited them.And the channels of the sea appeared, the foundations of the world were discovered, at the rebuking of the LORD, at the blast of the breath of his nostrils.He sent from above, he took me; he drew me out of many waters;He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them that hated me: for they were too strong for me.They prevented me in the day of my calamity: but the LORD was my stay.He brought me forth also into a large place: he delivered me, because he delighted in me.  2 Samuel  5:20
