You can’t control the weather, you aren’t in charge of the economy, you can’t un-wreck the car. But you can map out a strategy. Remember, God is in this crisis. Ask God to give you two or three steps you can take today. Seek counsel from someone who’s faced a similar challenge. Ask friends to pray. Reach out to a support group. Most importantly, make a plan.
You’d prefer a miracle for your crisis? You’d rather see the bread multiplied or the stormy sea turned glassy calm in a finger snap? God may do this. Then again, He may say, “I’m with you. I can use this for good. Now let’s make a plan.” God’s sovereignty doesn’t negate our responsibility, it just empowers it. So don’t let the crisis paralyze you. Trust God to do what you can’t. Obey God, and do what you can.
