What Is True in the Midst of Crisis?
Dennis Rainey & Bob Lepine
What is true in the midst of crisis?
How do I respond to tragedy with a biblical perspective?
Our friends Dennis Rainey and Bob Lepine of Family Life Ministries help answer these questions as they
reflect on what the scriptures say about God and His character.
1. We need to remember to give thanks in all things because giving thanks demonstrates faith
in the character of God, affirming that He knows what He is doing.
- 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
- Philippians 4:6
2. We need to remember that God is a sovereign God who rules with absolute control and power.
Nothing happens apart from what He allows or brings about.
- 2 Chronicles 2:5
- Psalm 115:3
- 1 Chronicles 29:11
- Job 42:1-6
- 1 Corinthians 15:54
- Romans 8:28
3. We need to remember that God is our redeemer, our rock, and our personal refuge.
- 2 Samuel 22:2-3
- Psalm 46
- Isaiah 33:15-16
- Jeremiah 16:19-20
- Hebrews 13:8
