Sooner or later, every crisis ends. We will then face the question of, “What’s next?” It’s an important question. While God wants and wills only good for His people, He also uses what the enemy intended for evil to mold us into someone better and stronger. As we emerge from trials, we will be changed. Life will be at once different and familiar.
If we use the time of crisis to draw closer to God, we will be better equipped to handle the next obstacle life puts in our path. But if we cower in fear, embracing our anxiety while we think the world is caving in around us, we will be weaker and poorly equipped to deal with what’s next.
