The political situation in Hong Kong has reduced me to prayer. The protesters, the police, the government, and people whose lives have been disrupted have been in my thoughts and prayers. These are exciting and anxious times, so I am also reduced to reading my Bible. One of my favorite verses is Psalms 64:10, It is usually translated, “Be still and know that I am God.” The MESSAGE translation speaks to me in the middle of the excitement and concern of what is happening in Hong Kong: "Step out of the traffic! Take a long, loving look at me, your High God, above politics, above everything.”
“God will overrule us all” as Mother Theresa used to say. Let’s all be prayerful and Jesus focused as he calls each of us to minister in these critical times.
