What do we do in a time of crisis? Where do we go? Who do we go to for help? The times of distress seem to be multiplying around the world, what with pandemics, wars, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, famines, pestilence, etc etc. Rich getting richer, poor getting poorer - life has become unsteady and turmoil'ish. So what is the answer?
For me, it is GOD ~ Omnipresent, Omnificent, Omnipotent!
I love the poetic psalms of the Bible, for they are heartfelt, tell it like it is, and provide comfort and hope. As I read Psalm 37 today it loudly spoke to me of the present day Russia/Ukraine standoff.
Righteousness found in CHRIST JESUS will prevail but the enemies of GOD will not flourish. Psalm 37 is worth meditating on.....
With eyes on JESUS
steadfast and unshakeable
His armies march on.....
Psalm 37 v 14-15
'The wicked draw the sword
and bend the bow
to bring down the poor and needy,
to slay those whose ways are upright.
But their swords will pierce their own hearts,
and their bows will be broken.'
Psalm 37 v 23-24
'Stalwart walks in step with God; his path blazed by God, he’s happy. If he stumbles, he’s not down for long; God has a grip on his hand.'
To be stalwart= loyal, valiant, devoted, staunch, unshakeable, steadfast
