Don’t Panic! God Is With You

posted by Linda Mintle

It’s been a stressful week. A friend of mine had his house struck by lighting while he was out of town and it burned to the ground. All their memories were gone in  moments. Another friend is going through a divorce, another is waiting on a papers to join her husband over seas. The list could go on…

During times of stress, it is important to remember, God is present. He indwells us and hasn’t gone anywhere.

My tendency is to panic first and then remember God is there–trying to reverse that habit!  I calm myself and remind myself that nothing that is happening is a surprise to God. He is still with me and guiding the process. And if His promises are true, He can use even the difficult stuff to bring about His purposes in our lives.

When trouble comes, it is important to maintain a grateful attitude and praise God in the midst of the trial. What helps is to read scripture that reminds us of God’s continual presence, His care for us and His promise to work all things for our good. If he orders our steps, then He is working in the situation. The trying of faith does bring patience!

So if you are going through a difficult time right now, don’t panic. Ask God for His peace in the middle of the storm. Remember, He is the same God who calmed the wind and rain and declared, Peace, be still!
