    I am a constant worrier. I was thinking about last night’s sermon. Jesus was in Bethany
    relaxing with friends. He knew in a short time He would suffer a humiliating and painful crucifixion. Yet He was not worried. Jesus trusted totally in the Father and knew whatever happened was under the control of the Father. All that was required of Jesus was obedience. Somehow in my life I fail to see that as long as I am obedient to the Father’s will for my life I will be free of worry. I need to be less like me and more like Jesus.

    If there was a survey to find “favourite two-word texts of Scripture”, I’m sure “FEAR NOT” would be high on the list … but those words have no magic of their own. It is WHO says them that matters, as you say.

    One of the puzzles of the Christian life is that the Lord allows (indeed, PLANS) the circumstances – real or imagined – to arise that prompt the fear. The adversary not only plays on the fears (and makes the shadows bigger than they really are), but also questions the love of God that directs His children in such a difficult pathway. But it is only as we learn to trust God IN the trial that our faith is strengthened; and looking back we find that the only way we could have learned that He is faithful is by going through the trial and finding Him there with us – as He promised.

    But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not, for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. For I am the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour … (Isaiah 43:1-3a)

    Worry is our worst enemy.Whenever the situation is out of human control we have to trust in the Lord fully with complete assurance of His power to take control.When the situation is a result of our decision we worry lest we do wrong decisions.To avoid this we have to ask God for His guidance in making our decisions.Even when we make wrong decisions, God is able to correct our mistakes if we handle the whole issue to His wisdom, love and grace.If we make God our Counselor in everything, we do not have to worry because God is like the GPS which directs us in finding our destination.Even if we mistakingly go astray, the GPS will direct us to go back on track.Lord Jesus said in Matthew 6:34 “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself.Sufficient for the day its own trouble.”

    I asked my wife this morning if she ever worries about anything? Her honest reply was that she used to worry about me. Oh if she only knew the days in times past when fear and worry were very close companions of mine. Now that has all changed. By standing on Gods word and really understanding the awesome love he has for me and that he only desires whats best for me, I no longer operate in fear. Thanks Jeff once again for letting God speak through you. Blessings.
