What does that word mean to you? How bad does a situation have to be before you consider it a crisis? What kind of crisis have you been through in your life? And finally, what constitutes a crisis?
Before I found the Kingdom and embraced it, all that I had to depend on was a religion and some so-called friends. But once I realized what the Kingdom of God was, my crisis mode became peace of mind. Keep in mind, this was a process and a journey. Once I accepted that Jesus was King and Lord, and all I had to do was listen and obey. I gain confidence in His Word. Jesus the King made this statement: These things I have spoken to you that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation, but be of good cheer, I have over come the world. It is very important that you put your total faith in King Jesus and His Words. Why? Because your faith is your greatest asset. Once you put your total trust in Him and His Word, what you may call a crisis will be a stepping stone to greater things in your life.
When we fail to have faith in His Word, crisis produces some or all of the following emotional responses in us: fear, trauma, depression, despair, frustration, anxiety, loneliness, worry and hopelessness. Keep in mind that we can be consumed by any of the following states of mind: a sense of abandonment, a sense of loss, a sense of death and an urgency for survival. Need I say, many felt like that after my friend and brother, Dr. Munroe went suddenly to be with the Father. But remember this, the King stated that He would never leave us. "...I am with you even to the end of the age." Even now, as I write these words of encouragement, this world is in crisis. But you need not be in a crisis. A crisis is a state of mind. Remember, keep your mind on Him. You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You. Because he trusts in You. Remember, trust in the King's Word, not in a "religious Christian faith" (they are not the same).
