When Crisis Comes

By Greg Laurie


Have you been hit with an unexpected crisis? Are you wondering what to do?

When Mary and Martha’s brother, Lazarus, was sick they sent word to Jesus saying “The one you love is sick” (John 11:3 NIV). They did not tell Him what to do; they simply brought their need before the Lord. And that is what we ought to do as well.

When the Israelites criticized and turned against Moses, he “cried unto the Lord” (Exodus 15:25 KJV). Have you been unfairly criticized for something you did? Have you been misrepresented or misunderstood? Cry to the Lord like Moses did.

When King Hezekiah received a threatening letter, he “spread it before the Lord” (Isaiah 37:14). Has someone threatened you in a letter, e-mail, or text? Have they tried to do you harm? Like King Hezekiah, bring it to the Lord.

When John the Baptist was beheaded, his disciples “went and told Jesus” (Matthew 14:12).

When crisis comes (and it will), go and tell Jesus. He is listening and He cares!
