Don’t hesitate to call God’s 911 hotline for help. You can tell God when you feel like you are running out of hope and energy and ideas that you need — “not words taught by human wisdom, but those taught by the Spirit, combining spiritual thoughts with spiritual words. For who has known the mind of the Lord, that he will instruct Him? But we have the mind of Christ” (1 Cor. 2:13, 16).
If you are diagnosed with a deadly disease, are given devastating news about someone you love, or encounter a life-altering financial crisis, you will soon discover that your greatest enemy is not the disease but those subtle, slippery feelings of despair, the thieves of peace. It’s imperative that we come to rely heavily on God’s 911 service to get through these kinds of challenges, one day at a time.
Wherever you are, whatever your circumstances, don’t hesitate to call 911 for God’s supply of wisdom, strength, and grace.
