It’s crazy really.
We decided to turn a business trip into a vacation, planning to only be away for about a week.
During those 8 short days, all of the forces of evil and hell broke loose in our world.
Threats of violence.
Attacks on innocent celebrations.
I don’t remember a time in recent history that’s felt more unstable or volatile.
Maybe you’ve felt as overwhelmed as we have?
So, what do we do?
How do we respond?
How do we face the future with so much chaos and trouble brewing?
I know of no better place to turn than to the Bible.
It’s God’s Word, and His words to us right now.
Here are 7 Bible Verses to Help You (and me) to Face the Future:
Promise One–2 Samuel 22:2
As pressures mount and fear rises in our world, I love the reminder of today’s verse: “The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer.” (2 Samuel 22:2)
A fortress is a place that’s protected against attack.
No matter what is going on around us, we can find great peace and protection as we press in close to our God — who is our rock, our fortress, & our deliverer!
Almighty God is our SAFE PLACE!
Promise 2–Hebrews 13:5
‘for He [God] Himself has said, “I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. [I will] not, [I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let [you] down (relax My hold on you)! [Assuredly not!]”‘
(Hebrews 13:5, AMPC)
