And He will say, “Where are their gods, the rock in which they sought refuge?” – Deuteronomy 32:37
Life is full of difficulty and this difficulty raises a question that demands an answer. When a crisis comes, where do you run? Do you run to financial security, familial stability, or physical prowess? What if the problem or crisis is financial, familial, or physical? Then what?
There is only one place to run in a crisis. God is the Rock in which we may find refuge, if we know Him and know where to find Him. In times of difficulty, we see God’s strength. Finances, family, and physique may fail, but God does not. Why?
He made it all, including your life, your family, and certainly your “stuff.” He was, He is, and He will always be Creator and Sustainer. Run to Him. He may not “fix” your finances, family, or physique, but He can and will fix you.
Crises bring out the best in the best of us, and the worst in the worst of us. – Anonymous
