As I was reading and studying, I discovered that the words for crisis in Japanese and Chinese are the same as the word opportunity. I found that to be strange, but true. You wouldn't think that those two words have anything in common until you realize that the seeming defeat inherent in every crisis holds the keys to an unanticipated victory.
A citizen of the kingdom who is in good standing with the king is always calm and cool under pressure, because he has confidence in God's Word. He is always thinking and meditating on God's Word and in God's Constitution. He tells us not to worry concerning anything. "Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand." Note this word gentleness identifies a person who manifests a calmness and fairness of spirit. An individual who is gentle is willing to sacrifice his or her own personal rights to show consideration to others. Now what does "at hand" mean? He is always near. Kingdom Citizens who trust in God's Word are always cool calm and collected because they believe God's Word is true. Remember what His Word states: Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Now I want you to know, if you are worrying in the slightest, you aren't trusting. Anxiety and trusting in the Word of God can't occupy the same space at the same time. If you are to be strong in times of crisis, you are to meditate on the King's Word.
Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy--meditate on these things.
Remember, your faith in the King is your greatest asset in the Kingdom.
