Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7
Why the foreboding view of 2019 being a year of conflict, upheaval, and instability?
In the political realm, with the takeover of the U.S. House of Representatives by Democrats with particularly leftist ideology, there will be non-stop opposition to President Trump, even efforts to impeach, along with advocacy for Marxist/Socialist policies: bigger government, divisive identity politics, expanding abortion, open immigration, removing gun rights, etc., etc.
The homosexual and transgender moral revolution will continue to demand affirmation, with Christians being punished for holding to biblical convictions. Add to that capitulation from within evangelicalism, with calls for “social justice” and departure from all manner of doctrinal orthodoxy.
Stir this all together, along with a host of other issues and events, many of which are unforeseen, and 2019 does indeed promise to be tumultuous. So what’s a Christian to do to maintain stability and peace in the midst of all this? Pastor Eric Davis of Cornerstone Church in Jackson Hole, WY joins us to exhort Christians to do five things to maintain stability and peace in the coming year.
