Living In Uncertain Times

You and I live in uncertain times. Amazingly, that often seems to be the most certain experience we have.

Think with me about all the areas we struggle with.

Will we have a nuclear Iran? Will our country deal with it adequately or hope it goes away? What about our economic situation? Health care? The breakdown of the family and the disregard for family?

We could go on and on.

How do we as believers handle the uncertainty of our world?

We must trust God. As I have prayed about our future, I am continually directed in my prayer to “trust Me.”

God wants to show us He is in control and that He is able to provide for all of our needs. The prophet Isaiah lived in uncertain times. He reminded us that God keeps those in perfect peace who set their minds on God (Isaiah 26:3-4). Peace will come through trust and setting our minds on God and His leadership.

We need to look at the example and teaching of Jesus. Remember the time when He and the disciples traveled to the other side of the lake? While they were traveling a storm came up on the Sea of Galilee, even to the point of capsizing the boat. The disciples experienced panic while Jesus slept.

They wondered if Jesus cared. Jesus, the Lord of the sea, calmned the sea with a command (Mark 4: 35-41).

Jesus did not panic at any point in life. He knew His Father was in control. Life for us gets hard, but I am most at peace when I trust God and let Him be in control.

As we live in uncertain times, let us remember and trust our God who cares for us.
