Keeping Calm in Chaos

Keeping Calm in Chaos

Unavoidable Turmoil

“You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come.”Matthew 24:6 (NIV)

In this verse, Jesus warns His disciples about the inevitable turmoil and chaos that will come upon the world. Wars, conflicts, and upheaval are an unavoidable part of the human experience.

Temptation to Fear

When confronted with such distressing news and events, our natural response is often one of fear and anxiety.

We may feel overwhelmed by the chaos, uncertain of what the future holds, and tempted to give in to panic or despair.

Call to Trust

Yet, Jesus offers a profound and comforting message: “See to it that you are not alarmed.”

He urges us not to be consumed by fear, but to trust in the sovereignty and control of God, even in the midst of turmoil.

Source of Peace

By anchoring our hearts in the knowledge that God is still in charge, we can find a deep and abiding peace that transcends our circumstances.

We can choose to focus not on the temporary upheavals of this world, but on the eternal promises of our Heavenly Father.

As we navigate times of chaos and uncertainty, cling to the truth that God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in times of trouble. (Psalm 46:1)

In Him, we can find the courage to face whatever comes our way, and the peace that surpasses all understanding.

In Joel 2:1, we find a powerful call to attention and action.

“Blow the trumpet in Zion; sound the alarm on my holy hill. Let all who live in the land tremble, for the day of the Lord is coming. It is close at hand.”

The Trumpet’s Call

The verse begins with an urgent command: “Blow the trumpet in Zion.” In biblical times, the sounding of a trumpet served as a signal for various purposes, including calling people to gather or alerting them to impending danger.

In this context, it’s a spiritual wake-up call to God’s people.

Sound the Alarm

“Sound the alarm on my holy hill,” declares the Lord. This is an urgent, divine alarm! Something is about to happen . . . get ready!

It’s a call to pay attention to the spiritual condition of our lives and the world around us.

Tremble and Prepare

The verse continues, “Let all who live in the land tremble.” This trembling is a response to the holiness and majesty of God. It’s an acknowledgment of His sovereignty.

The Day of the Lord, a time when God’s presence and judgment are manifested, is near. We are called to prepare our hearts.

Call to Spiritual Awakening

Joel 2:1 is a reminder that God’s call to awakening is continuous.

It’s a call to take stock of your own spiritual life, to seek Him earnestly, and to prepare yourself for His divine arrival.
