Crazy World

This has been a crazy weekend. The news has been filled with stories of mad men shooting and killing people.  These incidents were tragedies for their families.  For the public, it  makes us all more jumpier.

How do we as Christians cope in a world that has seemingly spun out of control?

We have to remember who is really in control.

“The Lord will extend your mighty scepter from Zion;

you will rule in the midst of your enemies.” (Psalm 110:2)

David knew the Lord was in control even though his world seemed filled with people who wanted to kill him.  Sometimes we are overwhelmed with all of the things that are happening in world.  We have to remember that the One who laid the foundations of the earth, can take this mourning and turn it into gladness. He has promised to give beauty for ashes. (Isaiah 61:3)

So don’t fear this world, be like David and fear the Lord. It is the beginning of wisdom. (From Breaking Free – wisdom is knowing what to do with what you know.)
