Panic not within the midst of disaster… We don’t panic.

In case of emergency:

– Discover out the info and calmly act on them;

– Attempt to talk to others clearly and successfully;

– Use procedures and checklists to scale back the psychological noise; and,

– Ignore the report of your nerves; don’t fall into temptation to panic — it by no means helps.

In disaster, smile. Be nonetheless and know that security is right here; it by no means leaves. For God has mentioned, “I can’t in any method fail you nor provide you with up nor depart you with out help. [I will] not, [I will] not, [I will] not in any diploma depart you helpless nor forsake nor let [you] down (chill out My maintain on you)! [Assuredly not!]” -Hebrews 11:5b (Amplified Model).

Know the tranquillity of God now because it exists in you. It’s a determination of the desire, backed by the energy of the Spirit. It may be yours at any time you select.
