Counteracting disaster

The Christian Science Monitor

What does it take to remain confident of relief, despite persistent drought? To have an assurance of safety even when you live in an earthquake-prone area? To feel protected from any number of potential disasters over which humanity seems to have little control?

From a technological point of view, the tools don't exist. And faced with predictions based on geological or climatic cycles, hope can wilt like a parched ear of corn.

But that won't happen if hope rests on an understanding of God instead of on human ingenuity or the vagaries of nature. The Bible indicates that when people are confronted by any oppressive condition, the crucial step is to turn in prayer to the one, all-caring God, whose nature is boundless good, Love itself.
