When we are experiencing multifaceted changes, our minds can easily go into overdrive – trying to cope and find ways to regain some form of regularity.
When things become unpredictable, it is natural and easy to feel helpless. But we find the courage we need by being anchored in Jesus Christ, who does not change. How are we anchored in Jesus Christ? By daily spending time praying to God and prayerfully reading the Bible, asking God to reveal Himself to us.
In Psalm 46:10 we are told, to “Be still, and know that I am God…” (KJV). This Bible verse encourages us to look to God who is the source of our strength and who has the answers for all our problems.
Though there are many things outside of our control, as we depend on God, the Holy Spirit will reveal to us the practical things we can do.
So as you reflect on your current situation, for each change that has occurred identify: the challenge(s) created; the solution(s) required; and what you can do now to face the challenge(s). Then prayerfully start to put the actions into practice however small.
In the midst of uncertainty, when our focus is redirected to God, we experience assurance and comfort.
