Ever wonder why some Christians seem to stir up trouble for themselves and others while other Christians seek to calm the storm? Imagine two people on either end of a giant seesaw, one pushing down while the other reaches up.
Jesus tells His disciples not to be afraid, to not allow their hearts to be troubled. He encourages them with the Word that He is with them always, even to the end of the world.
Paul reminds us – with strong exhortation – that if God is for us, what can be against us? Nothing can overpower Him; nothing can succeed against His Will.
Thank You, dearest Heavenly Father God, for being here with us now. Thank You for Your loving control of all things and for Your command to not fear and not be troubled. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
