Psalm 27: 3

"Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this I will be confident."

The recent terrorist attacks in Mumbai, India last week, which started on November 26, 2008 has left a trail of economic and political upheaval in that country, in addition to the emotional and mental distress which was felt by all, there and around the world. Here is the thing. Financial attacks can come from a variety of sources and a variety of circumstances. We can never tell what life events are going to occur that can have a financial impact in our lives. A divorce, loss of a job, major illnesses, natural disasters, and wars all have economic consequences that many of us are ill-equipped to deal with, and sometimes are beyond our control. In circumstances like these, we need to put our full confidence and trust in God to lead us out of crisis. We should never let circumstances dictate the path of our lives, instead we need to look to God to help us keep our sanity during rough times, and to help us come out victorious!
