One Minute with God: Don’t be troubled
With so much going on in the world there is a sense of perplexity, concern, and anxiety brewing in the hearts of people. On one side, many are rejoicing for what could be, and on the other side, some are fearing for how this can negatively impact their lives. Either way, the Bible encourages us to not allow ourselves to be troubled, nor should we permit that our hearts and minds be tossed like the waves of the sea. Every generation faces its challenges, and every age group sees the world through a different perspective and lens. But, one thing is for sure that no matter what the winds of change may bring - the sun will continue to shine faithfully on all who dwell on the earth. Don’t allow uncertainty to derail you nor allow for fear to tarnish your faith in God. For He only is our peace in the midst of trouble and the rock of our salvation. Hold on to the immovable love, and faithfulness of God. What difference does it make what the future may hold - if our trust is in He who is the author and finisher of our faith.
Don’t be troubled.
Hebrew 13:5-8 Because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” 6So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?”
7Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you. Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith. 8Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.
