There are three types of people when it comes to emergency preparedness. The first type is always overly prepared. They have stacks of food and clothes; they carry food kits in their cars and listen to the radio for the latest changes in the forecast. Often these people are ruled by fear—what will happen tomorrow?!
The second type is those who are prepared for the things to come. These individuals wisely store up food and prepare to react appropriately when there is a need. They don’t panic, but rely on a trusted source to guide them in the time of trouble.
Lastly, there are people who ignore the signs and warnings. They are self-reliant. They believe that nothing will happen to them; and if things get really bad, they’ll be smart enough to find a way out. Most often it is this type of people who will choose to celebrate and party to show their confidence in tomorrow.
What type are you? How will you respond to God’s warnings of the last times? Will you wait until its is too late? Don’t rely on your own understanding; choose His plan for you!
Therefore in that day the Lord God of hosts called you to weeping, to wailing, To shaving the head and to wearing sackcloth. Instead, there is gaiety and gladness,
Killing of cattle and slaughtering of sheep, Eating of meat and drinking of wine: “Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we may die.” (Isaiah 22:12-13 NASB)
