A crisis can bring out the best – or worst – in all of us! And believe me, I can give you personal examples of both! I won’t – but I could!
With God’s help – throwing our dependence on Him and relying on the Holy Spirit’s “nudge” and empowering presence – why not allow the results of a crisis to be positive and God-honoring?
Think you’re alone in that struggle? Listen to the cry of Psalmist David in Psalm 141…
“O Lord, I am calling to you! Please hurry! Listen when I cry to you for help!
“Take control of what I say, O Lord – guard my lips! Don’t let me drift toward evil or take part in acts of wickedness!
“I look to you for help, O Sovereign Lord – You are my refuge!” (From Psalm 141:1-4, 8 NLT)
I’ve prayed that prayer many times – not precisely the same words, but the same prayer! May I remember to pray it again the next time I face a crisis (and then yield to God’s empowering presence and guidance)! I believe He’ll help me, don’t you?
What are you going to do the next crisis you face?
