In Case of Crisis

Crisis? We all get our share. Where’s God when it hits? Right here…

“Think of the power that will fit us for all crises. With the power of Jesus in our spirits we shall never have to attempt a duty for which we are not strengthened, nor to front a danger from (and in which) He will not defend us. With His life in us we shall be ready for the long hours of uneventful, unexciting duties, and for the short spurts that make exacting calls on us. We ‘shall run and not be weary; we shall walk and not faint.’ If we live in Jesus we shall always be in ‘a land of peace,’ and no ‘plague shall come nigh our dwelling.’ Even when the soles of our feet rest in the waters of Jordan, the waters of Jordan shall be cut off, and we shall pass over on dry ground into the land of peace, where they that would swallow us up shall be far away for ever.” —Andrew MacLaren

Ah, rest.
