Responding to God in Crisis

Back to Message Archive

From time to time, the crises of life come our way. And sometimes we forget the most important aspect of every crisis, and it is this: God is sovereign over every crisis, we are ultimately dealing with him. When we forget the God-dimension in our crises, we respond wrongly, and the result is that we deepen or prolong our crises. In the opening verses of the book of Ruth, there is a man by the name of Elimelech, and we are told of a crisis he faced and how he responded. In today’s sermon, we will consider this account of Elimelech, his circumstances, choices, and consequences. Let’s open our hearts and allow the Lord to use this account to help us to appropriately respond to him in our times of crises.
