I have never watched the series ‘Lost’. I have only seen the teasers and understood the storyline – people lost on a tropical island after a plane crash. A very exciting plot. What will happen? Will they survive?
You can get lost in the urban jungle. It is possible to feel lost. Situations in life can be pretty challenging some times. The other day I spoke with a middle aged man that described a very challenging situation in his life. Everything is at stake. It could all go well or it could all go to hell. Well, not really. He is hopefully far from going to hell, but still it is a critical time in his life.
The financial markets are shivering these days trying to adapt to the crisis in some countries. When Greece is facing almost bankruptcy it affects the world around and it affects the economical balance. The same goes for individuals or companies. People around you get affected if you get financial problems even if you’re trying to cope on your own.
“There was no money left” another friend told me. “I actually sat down and prayed to God. I hadn’t been worried but now the bank accounts were all empty.” She had bigger projects going on and it was for sure a tough situation. She went on; “The next day 50.000,- Norwegian kroners appeared on the account! I had told nobody. The money came from some friends. We’re not even related!”
God reveals himself as ‘God our Provider’ (with the name Jehovah Jire in Hebrew) in various ways in the Bible.
We’re not lost.
‘Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”’Bible ref; Heb 13,5 Annonser
