There is an old Gospel hymn that says, “In times like these, you need a Savior. In times like these, you need an anchor. Be very sure, be very sure, your anchor holds and grips the solid rock.”
There has never been a time when those words were as true as they are now. In these days, we face economic hardships, terrorism, gun violence, war, all manner of insecurity. Many voices shout out answers to solve these dangers and challenges. Their answers are inadequate at best. I suggest just one sure answer from 2 Chronicles.
If my people who are called by my name shall humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
2 Chronicles 7:14. New American Standard Bible (NASB)
We can complain, despair, cry out for help, all to no avail. What we must do is humble ourselves, pray, seek God’s face, turn from our wicked ways, and then wait patiently for God to hear us and to forgive and heal.
