Living with Certainty in an Uncertain World

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. Psalm 23:4 (NIV)

Fear is the path to the dark side. –Yoda

There has always been uncertainty. But I must admit that today there seems so much more uncertainty on the loose. We have the war on the Ukraine, energy prices spiking, social unrest, pandemic and healthcare challenges, a mental health crisis and I’ll throw in a spiritual crisis as well.

Churches are challenged in a way they have never been challenged before. On the one hand, there is so much brokenness in the world that finding a place to minister the gospel of Christ is easy. But Christians are people too, and they face the same issues as everyone else and many are overwhelmed with all this uncertainty, they need help as well.

With that said, I’d like to point out a few things about uncertainty and the worry it brings to help us in the days to come.
