Neither Be Troubled ( by Carley Evans )

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.

    I always feel like Mario when I go to Grace Partakers and you link me to Obsecrations. You know, how he can get near a wall in secret places and vanishes and appears in another world. Well, here I am back again. It’s okay, though this post is worth a second read. God bless, Carley.

  3. Awesome post Carley. A great reminder for us all. I have been struggling for several years with worry and stress. God has reminded me several times that if I can’t change the situation, don’t get stressed about it. Remembering Paul’s admonition that if God is for us, who can be against us is an important part of my journey. Thanks for posting and God bless you!

      Mike,
      Thanks.
      I believe everyone worries at one time or another.
      Resting our cares/concerns/fears on Jesus is simple yet illusive.
      Have faith — God catches you when you fall down. Believe it!
      In Christ,
      Carley
