Biblical Inspiration... Spiritually Prepared for Crisis and Disasters!
You CAN know peace even while the world is in turmoil. God promises us a "Peace beyond all understanding", peace of mind in a world that doesn't make sense.
There is reason to hope.
The Bible tells us that God will never leave us. He can make something beautiful out of ugly circumstances. He can bring good out of what others meant for evil.
He still offers hope, peace and words of inspiration to each of us today. God is in control, even in the middle of these troubled times we can be at peace knowing... God does not change... Ever!
Every one of us faces needs and trials in our lives. Sometimes they are beyond our own means or understanding. These are not the times to panic or to give up in defeat. These are the times to have faith, and trust the Lord will meet and supply our need from His unlimited storehouse, as only He can.
God gave us many verses of Biblical Inspiration that can comfort, encourage, and prepare us for troubled times.
Worry or trust God. These are two choices that we have in EVERY situation. With the first words of the above verse we are given the choice not to worry, "do not let your hearts be troubled (worried), and then we are given a second choice to "trust in God also in Jesus".
The biblical inspiration here is... It doesn’t matter what the stock market is doing, somehow the birds survive. When war is threatening or happening around us, the flowers still bloom in season.
In the same way, no matter what the headlines bring or what happens in our homes, with God in control, we can live with our mind and heart at peace.
Noah's actions in "preparing an ark for the saving of his house", shows he was obedient to God's warning - which was the evidence of his FAITH that God would be with him in preparing for the crisis to come.
Another reason why the Story of Noah is important for us today... "For it is written" AS IT WAS IN THE DAYS OF NOAH, SO IT WILL BE AT THE COMING OF THE SON OF MAN. - It is very much like this today!
We were forewarned of disaster events increasing as the "end times" or "end of the world" draws near. When we prepare for these increasing events such as flooding, hurricanes, famines, pestilences, earthquakes or warfare, we know that these events are occurring for spiritual reasons. (Matthew - Chapter 24)
These disasters are a kind of countdown, allowed by God to set the stage for the final moments of time. “And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh” (Luke 21:28).
Everything that is, and is about to happen, he told us would happen. Safety, Peace and Complete Preparedness, requires putting yourself in His Hands and trusting in Him daily.
"God is in complete power and control and in God alone
is our peace and safety."
