Certain measures in uncertain times

What will our actions be in these uncertain times? As all watch the stock market fluctuate wildly, the unemployment rise, and the homes in foreclosure exceed all expectations, does a shiver run up our spines?

Some assembly required

Preparation - it can be found throughout scripture. Noah had to prepare for the flood that destroyed Earth's population. Naomi prepared Ruth to impress Boaz and capture his attention. Joseph was placed in charge of the preparations that needed to occur during the seven years of plenty so that the seven years of famine would be survivable. After his conversion, Paul spent about 17 years in preparation for the outpouring of his ministry. Even Jesus went to the wilderness as part of His preparation process. He later went to the garden to prepare for His journey to Golgotha.
