“That is why, for Christâ€™s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” – 2 Corinthians 12:10
Do you know how the Chinese word pictures define crisis? Itâ€™s a combination of two word pictures: danger and opportunity. What a tremendous picture that paints of what a crisis is. It is a time of danger, a time of risk but itâ€™s also a time of opportunity.
Life is filled with crises. We shouldnâ€™t see them problems, but an opportunities. Opportunities to grow closer to God, to seek His wisdom and strength and in the process and come through a time of danger as a stronger and wiser person, who has risen to the challenge of getting through a crisis.
Are you facing a crisis in your family? In your work? In your life? Remember itâ€™s a dangerous time â€” a time of great risk. Respond poorly and it can be devastating. But seeing it as an opportunity to seek help from God and how to successfully navigate your way through a mine field of living, can make your life a better life, a more meaningful life than ever before.
