Three Simple Ideas for Our Peace:

Notes from Our Pastor’s Sunday Sermon

  1. Be Still
    Crisis leads to anxiety leads to “do something, anything”. the Bible calls us to do just the opposite. Our first response is to stop, be still; “Be still and know that I am God…” (Psalm 46:10)
    The beginning of Psalm 46 says He is our very present help in trouble. So be still until you recognize that presence and know that help.
  2. Pray
    Philippians 4:6 tells us not to be anxious, but instead pray. Ask God for wisdom, strength, help in what to do, when to act, how to respond; and then be willing to be still until He reveals His answer. He always does.
  3.  Take the step that most responds to God
    Our steps should acknowledge God, not our fears, not our crisis. Our actions should acknowledge God, not the world. That is the fear of the Lord. Fearing anything in the world leads to more fear, but “In the fear of the Lord one has strong confidence…” (Proverbs 14:26)
