Don't Panic — Believe
By Andrew Wommack @

- Spiritual First Aid :

What is the first thing you should do in a crisis situation?

One day as I was reading John 14, 15, and 16, the Lord began to give me the answer

to this question. In John 16:1, Jesus says, "These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended."

According to Mark 4:17, when a person is offended,
Satan takes the Word of God from them.

In other words, when you are offended, the Word of God stops releasing its

life-giving power in your life. When you take offense, when you get hurt, the Word stops operating. The Lord said,

"These things [John 14, 15, and 16] have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended."

Jesus said this to His disciples the night before His crucifixion.

In John 13:32-33, Jesus said He knew all things that were going to come upon Him.

He knew all things that were going to come upon His disciples too.

He was totally aware of the situation. He came to His disciples to give them some last-minute instructions before the most trying time they'd ever experienced in their lives. It surpasses anything that you or I ever have or ever will encounter.

These disciples were literally the people Jesus was going to use to establish His church and overthrow Satan's kingdom. Therefore, I believe Satan threw every bit of discouragement, doubt, confusion, and torment he had against them.

It was a crisis time. They had forsaken families, careers — everything — for Jesus.
And they were in a situation that was going to test their faith, that Jesus was the Messiah even.

Jesus said, "I'm speaking these things to you that you should not be offended."

In other words, if the disciples had taken heed to what Jesus told them here, they would not have been offended. They could have rejoiced during that very trying time.

So John 14, 15, and 16, in capsule form, is everything you need to know in a crisis when your faith is being tested. If this doesn't apply to you at this moment, hang on — it will. Every one of us needs to know this. We need to be schooled in these precautions before the crisis hits.

When a crisis hits, your very first reaction — the first thing you do when Satan attacks — usually determines the outcome.

- The Fires of Adversity:

Not long ago, I was reading a book called Terror at Tenerife.

It reminded me of what we're talking about here. This man, Norman Williams, was in the accident on the Canary Islands in which two huge 747s crashed on the runway and burned. Only a few people out of 500 or more escaped. The rest were killed.

It was miraculous how Williams got out. He looked at the people on either side of him, and it was so hot, the flesh just melted off of them. They became skeletons instantly. He said that people who were normally nice — little old ladies sixty or seventy years old — yelled things so vile it was unbelievable. He couldn't describe it.

The things that were hidden deep in their hearts came out in a crisis situation and bothered him more than anything else.

But what came out of his mouth was different — he'd been seeking the Lord. He had agreed with his mother before he left on the trip that he'd be safe. The first thing to come out of his mouth was his faith that God would protect him. He had a huge fireball come right at him, but he wasn't burned. Then a landing gear came flying at him. He just caught the thing and threw it off. There was an explosion right above his head, and the plane, ten feet high at that point, was torn open. He jumped up right through that hole, even though he was fifty years old and overweight.

God supernaturally delivered him!

Norman Williams didn't have time to sit back and ask,
"Now let's see, what should I do in this situation?"

- First Things Last:

Your first reaction is going to determine the outcome in a crisis situation.
Seldom do we have the luxury of sitting back and looking at things. The attitude you have when Satan comes against you is going to determine the final result.

If you can get a hold of this truth, it will revolutionize your life.

I've been teaching this everywhere I go, and I've seen more results out of it than anything I've ever taught. It's based on simple truths from the Word, but if you get established in them, they'll keep you from being offended, and the Word of God will produce in your life.

In John 14:1, Jesus says, "Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me."

Now this is so simple that you can miss it. It's very profound, however. The first thing you have to do when Satan comes against you is to make the decision that you are not going to let your heart be troubled.

If you were to diagram this sentence, the understood subject is "you." You let not your heart be troubled.
God gave you the choice. God gave you power over your

Again, this is so simple we often miss it.

The vast majority of people I deal with who are attacked by Satan don't really understand this. A lot of them believe that in a given situation, there is no way that they can help but to be depressed and discouraged. They justify emotions that are contrary to God's Word. But this is a command as much as any other command in the Word — as much as "thou shalt not commit adultery, thou shalt not steal, and thou shalt not kill." It is a direct command from the Lord!

So the very first thing you have to do is say,
"I am not going to let my heart be troubled."

- Depression — Getting Christians Down:

As I travel, the biggest problem I encounter in the body of Christ is discouragement and depression. At least three-fourths of the people I deal with constantly battle these emotions. There is no excuse for it — there are reasons, but no excuses.

We've gotten to the point that we think these kinds of emotions are normal. A lot of people try to resist and walk in victory, for a brief period of time. They have bounds, or limits, to how far they'll go in believing God. When certain things happen, such as someone dying, they say, "Well, how could you expect anybody not to be
discouraged or not to grieve?"

Well, I guarantee you the Lord Jesus Christ has borne our sorrows and carried our griefs! That's not to say that you don't miss a person, but there is no justification for getting into grieving which becomes destructive.
