“A prudent man forseeth the evil, and hideth himself; but the simple pass on, and are punished.” ~ Proverbs 22:3
We are living in a time of real challenges and rapid changes. There is a lot of uncertainty. I remember simpler times. We use to only get about an hour and a half of news broadcasts. Now we are faced with the latest news 24/7. Terrorist attacks, government corruption, failing economies, civil unrest, strange diseases, and a number of other crises.
It just confirms that God’s word is true. Jesus said, “Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.” ~ Luke 21:26
I’ve never experienced being in an earthquake. People say that nothing is stable and everything is moving and falling during an earthquake. Sometimes it seems our world is in a constant shaking. It may be to late to prepare after something happens. Jesus told the parable of the wise man and the foolish man. “The rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon the house.” ~ Matthew 7:25
It happened to the wise man and the foolish man alike. The wise man was able to survive. He trusted in God’s grace, provision, protection, and His word.
Let’s be prudent and seek the rock of our salvation, Jesus Christ. He will always be a faithful savior, no matter what the storm. “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” ~ Psalm 46:1
