In today’s global society we continue to see an increase of violence, rampant shootings, riots, tumultuous weather patterns, racial strife, instability in North Korea, chaos in Syria and the Middle East, Russia’s re-emergence, and wars and rumors of wars (Matt. 24:3-14).
How are we to respond in these perilous times? (2 Tim. 3:1). These events leave us with a simple choice that we must make. This one question must be answered: Will we respond in fear or faith?
In a time of confusion, strife and fierce anti-Semitism, the stateswoman Corrie Ten Boom declared, “There is no panic in heaven! God has no problems, only plans.”
If the church is pushing the panic button instead of faith, trust, prayer and confidence toward God, what do we expect the world to look like? Rather, we must create a culture of faith instead of fear!
