When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.” Psalm 56:3
God wants us to trust Him with all of our hearts and faithfully believe He WILL handle ALL things. But sometimes we need to be reminded He is BIGGER than our fear.
Events in the world are unsettling. It’s hard to hear stories about tragedy, illness and loss. We fear what will happen next and long to find comfort and calm. But God wants us to turn our eyes on Jesus and focus on what is GOOD. There's good news of PEACE in His presence! In weakness, He gives us STRENGTH. He helps us fear no more...
The Bible says TRUST in the Lord! God is the One who knows what will happen next. He is the Provider of everything we need. His Spirit of holiness welcomes peace and guides us in wisdom and truth. He helps us remember we don’t have to figure out everything on our own.
We will continue to hear stories that will leave us feeling empty from reports of bad news. We won't know what is factual and true. But God will help us recognize the love of His faithfulness. When we call on Him, He will help us understand.
Anxiety and fear will diminish while we’re cradled in care. There will never be a day without the power of His love. God will arm us with everything we need to battle the worry of wonder. He will lead us to a place of rest and help us stay focused.
The world will never offer the GOOD NEWS we need. But God has GOOD plans for the future! We must believe in His power to save and never forget why HE alone is the One who knows what's best for our lives.
Dear God, please bring calm to our hearts when worry robs our joy and fear creates anxious thoughts. Help us remember who’s in charge of ALL things. Guide us in wisdom and truth, so we will focus on mercy and grace. We will TRUST You all of our days and find courage in the presence of Your strength. Thank you for arming us with everything we need. We know You will set the stage for GOOD to come and give us PEACE to remain faithful. We will find joy in what You provide and never forget how very much we are loved. Thank you, Lord! Thank you! Amen
