Responding with God’s Priorities and Plan

The Latest "Living in Hope with the One Leader" Study Series

 

We are all going to come through this current COVID-19 crisis. In some of the darkest days of WWII, when Great Britain stood alone against the tyranny of the Nazi attacks upon their nation, Winston Churchill said this, “If you are going through hell, keep going.”

How do we keep going? How are we coming through?

We must ask ourselves: Where are we? Are we stuck (frozen, struggling, tied up emotionally), reacting (getting angry, blaming, having a short fuse) or responding (thinking, praying, asking for advice)? Obviously, we need to be responding while working through being stuck or reacting.

Life is probably not meeting your expectations right now. In times of uncertainty, the tendency is to make things more complex. Our real need is to keep it simple and targeted. To simplify, we must have two fundamental things with God’s guidance: Priorities and a Plan.

The Bible gives us good direction on key priorities that serve as a framework for living and thriving.

Here are three of them:  

  1. Matthew 6:33 says, “Butseek first His kingdom and His righteousness, andall these things will be added to you.”
  2. Psalm 27:4-5 says, “One thing I have asked from theLord, that I shall seek: that I maydwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord and to meditate in His temple. For in the day of trouble He will conceal me in His tabernacle; in the secret place of His tent He will hide me; He will lift me up on a rock.”
  3. Philippians 3:8 says, “More than that, I count all things to be lossin view of the surpassing value ofknowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them but rubbish so that I may gain Christ.” 

What’s the key principle we should learn? We can’t control the damage, pain, and timing of much of life. Choose to be thankful and focus on priorities.
