Have you ever been in a dangerous situation where all those around you were in a panic? How did you respond? Did you have the courage to take action when no one else would?
In today’s episode of All God’s Women we look at an unnamed woman from the city of Abel. When Abel was under siege and no one knew what to do, she stepped up and took charge.
In a time when her city was under siege, this woman calmly assessed the situation and took control.
We’ll likely never be in a situation quite like this particular one, but we’ve all experienced times of danger where it seemed everyone around us was running around scared with no plan of action.
How do you act in such times? Do you make things worse, panicking, playing the drama queen, running around screaming you’re all going to die?
Do you seek out others to join you in your panic party?
Do you huddle in a corner, trying to hide and hoping it will all just go away?
Or do you go to the one in charge and ask him, what you should do in the situation?
So often, we do all of the above and only seek out God as a last resort. We are blessed to know who’s always in charge, and we have twenty four hour direct access to Him to find out how to handle the situation.
We don’t have to be a drama queen. We don’t have to run around in confusion. We don’t need to join panic parties. We don’t have to huddle in fear.
All we need do is go directly to Him and ask Him what to do. And then, we have to do what He instructs.
