Life has changed dramatically in the last year. Many have had everything they trusted in turned upside down. Others have lost their savings and must go back to work. Others have lost their jobs and their hope is to simply find another one. It's as if all we have trusted in has been taken away. Now what do we do? Who do we trust? How will we survive?
It's exactly the situation the nation of Israel found themselves in while living in Egypt. God had to literally pry their hands and hearts off of all they trusted in so they would trust in HIM. Could it be that he's doing that now? Could it be that he is using this time to ask, "Will you trust me now? Will you trust me now?" But I watch as so many scramble to reestablish confidence in a job....savings....themselves and are not yet ready to ask for God's help. In our days of new realities I hope more and more of those whose lives have been changed will make a change that includes a dependence on God to lead, provide and care for them. He's the only one who won't change in the middle of all of our new realities.
