It happened right after breakfast. A thundering and loud BOOM shook a military base in Afghanistan. There was dust everywhere, like that of an enraged sandstorm. Shattered buildings, walls caved in, and a video revealed the story of how 1,500 pounds of high explosives threatened the lives of those in the military base.
Christmas day in Afghanistan…Christmas eve back in the U.S.A. Our host was video chatting with is family when those dreaded words came over the loudspeaker:
INCOMING, INCOMING, INCOMING!
That was the start of a very long day. War is scary. War seems to be everywhere. Christians around the world are feeling a sense of dread and anxiety. Is World War 3 about to start? Is Nuclear War imminent?
Israel has officially and formally declared war for the first time in 50 years. Russia has continued in its invasion of Ukraine. Azerbaijan is poised to invade its neighbor. What does this mean? What do we do when it seems like the world is on fire?
The first step is to take a deep breath and realized that God is in control. It may seem like a cliche, but sharing experiences from his time in Afghanistan, our host explains that God really is in control. Next, pray. Pray privately in your own home. Pray corporately with your brothers and sisters. Finally, realize that a) all bad times come to an end and b) Jesus Christ is victorious over all!
Listen to this episode to see how God carries us through the storms of this life. Do not let the storms of this life overwhelm you. Take comfort in the knowledge that God is in control, in every situation, and He will not only hear your cry, but rescue you.
