How many of us find it easy to remain calm during times of peace, but have a hard time remaining calm in times of crisis? I am sure you remember the story of the US Airways pilot, Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger, that safely landed a US Airways 757 on the Hudson Bay. To the shock of everyone, the plane landed safely and nobody was injured. Captain Sullenberger is credited with saving hundreds of lives that day, mainly because he remained “calm”. It was his composure that allowed him to think clearly and act appropriately to land the plane. Did you know that when we go through our own “crisis”, we too must remain calm?
In Luke 21:8-9 we read, “8 And He said: “Take heed that you not be deceived. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am He,’ and, ‘The time has drawn near.’ Therefore[b] do not go after them. 9 But when you hear of wars and commotions, do not be terrified; for these things must come to pass first, but the end will not come immediately.”
Jesus assures us that we will experience crisis, wars and commotions. But, it is His next words that should allow us to remain calm. Jesus states, “do not be terrified; for these things must come to past first”. As you look at the trials you are experiencing in life, “do not be terrified” because Jesus is with you, Jesus will guide you, Jesus will save you.
I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
