How Should I Respond to the Craziness of Today’s Events?

Updated: Jul 31, 2020

Watching news these days can be a gut-wrenching activity. There’s so much going on, and it seems as though the world is spinning out of control. Over exposure to such intense and consuming negativity can be unsettling.


As a Christian, what should my response be?

· Should I make a sign and march in the streets?

· Should I join an activist group?

· Should I just stay in my prayer closet crying out to God to intervene?

· Or should I just pretend that all is well and practice my positive affirmations?


Each of us are individuals, and God has called and gifted us uniquely for His divine purposes. So, there’s not a one-size-fits-all answer or approach.

However, there are some strategies that we can all benefit from!


Here are a few:


· Do NOT rely on your own wisdom or ideas!!


· Ask yourself what Jesus would do. This is much more than a cliché! Jesus set the perfect example of fulfilling the will of God in the history of mankind!


· Seek God’s peace and direction. We absolutely must spend time in prayer with God asking for His peace to fill our hearts, and His wisdom to direct our steps!


· Once we have secured His peace, wisdom, and direction …

o Only do what you see Him do

o Only say what you hear Him say


· Be willing to step outside your comfort zone. If we keep doing what we’ve been doing, we’ll keep getting what we’ve been getting.


God sees the end from the beginning. He has full knowledge of where we are and where we’re going, as well as perfect wisdom. Seek Him for your guidance every day, as well as throughout the day.


Right now, we are living in a history shifting time! The culture and direction of the world are being contested. The victors of this conflict will set the direction and tone of our lives for years to come. The stakes could not be higher.


This is NOT a time to fear or withdraw. You have come to the Kingdom for such a time as this!


Of all the people through the history of humanity, God chose YOU to represent Him in the Earth at this critical time. What an honor! What a responsibility!


Don’t be discouraged. Don’t be afraid. God is with you, and He is for you! He has the perfect plan to bring you through in absolute and perfect victory!


We are in this together. I need you. You need me. We need each other! The LORD is emphasizing the importance of community during this time of mandatory isolation and separation. Stay connected!!!


Be creative. Remain open to divine thoughts of inspiration. God is doing amazing things RIGHT NOW! Choose to partner with Him to bring His Kingdom and His will to Earth, even as it is in Heaven!


Peace, wisdom, and victory to you


Steve
