Middle of the Storm
CBN.com – IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STORM
Never before have there been such jarring headlines, distressing news and slumping world economies which have caused people to be on edge. American investors lost $6.9 trillion in the stock market in 2008, which is one half of the total weath of the United States. In 2009, 30 percent of the Forbes magazine list of billionaires dropped off. The net worth of households fell by $11.2 trillion in 2008, and we have seen the steepest decline in the housing market since 1951 and in stocks since 1946. The best of times have become the worst of times. Dr. Jeremiah says that in the middle of these chaotic events and a volatile economic future, people can continue to live a life of confidence and commitment. “We serve a loving heavenly Father who wants us to know that this world and its troubles will not last forever,” he says.
Dr. Jeremiah reminds us that in the midst of these troubling times it is important to stay calm. “The Bible tells us that we have a God who calms the storm. In John 14, He tells us, ‘Let not your hearts be troubled,’” says Dr. Jeremiah.
As we attempt to move through these chaotic days, it is important to remember that we cannot place our faith in any of this world’s establishments or institutions. “As we wait for His return, we trust Him to care for our every need,” says Dr. Jeremiah.Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( 2 so far )
