|SCRIPTURE TEXT: “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me” —John 14:1|
The presence of a troubled heart is due to the absence of a believing heart. Faith is like a strong gate that keeps all unwanted visitors out of the fortress of our hearts, while keeping safely within, all the welcomed promises of God’s Kingdom.
Jesus never wants the visitor named “troubled”to gain any entrance into your life. “Troubled”wants to stir you up inside, like agitated water in a pool. “Troubled” wants to attack your emotions and keep you disturbed. “Troubled” uses weapons of fear, doubt, and perplexity. “Troubled” will try and harass you, annoy you, and defeat you.
But faith has mightier weapons! Faith’s victory is in the stillness, the calm, the quiet, the rest, and the peace of Jesus Christ.
PRAYER: Dear Lord, help me not to worry. But let my faith in You grow stronger in times of trouble. Amen
