I’m stricken today with the enormity of our present world situation. There has never been anything in our lifetime which resembles it. The news states that some are overreacting, some say we are on track, some say more should be done. None of this matters for the present reality is what it is. Every person is to turn inward by staying away from others and keep personal safety as the highest priority. In this state we need food, shelter, warmth and rest as Maslow’s hierarchy states. At least in our country, self-actualization (top of Maslow’s hierarchy) has been our focus for many, many years. We have grown accustomed to this being a “basic need”. How quickly this can shift.
Today I’m reminded that these basic, physical needs are required for us to sustain living. However, what is required to sustain eternal living is Jesus Christ. Accepting Jesus as our Savior is our highest priority. Then, accepting Jesus as Lord is our second highest priority. Once we’ve done this, then put our human state on the table for prioritization. Lets all remember that God is the God of the universe. Scripture says heaven is God’s throne and the earth is His footstool (Isaiah 66:1). He is truly aware of this state and He wants us to know this and trust Him in it. I’m going to trust.
