“Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me. John 14:1 NLT
Today, everyone is troubled at some level. So many things are happening. I don’t believe that any of us expected Covid 19 to be such a powerful force in the world in 2021. The death rate is rising and more people are becoming infected. These events can be troubling and produce anxiety. But I am sure Jesus had these types of occurrences in mind when He said, “Don’t let your heart be troubled.” The MSG version says, “Don’t let this rattle you.” Sometimes it’s difficult to stay calm in your storm but it’s not impossible.
When you look at language like that, it tells you that you can take control of the situation you are facing. There are many things in life that have the potential to rattle you but when you trust in God, He makes the difference. When we look at Jesus’ life on earth He had the ability to speak peace to the storms. He spoke peace to the storm when the disciples were in the boat and he spoke peace to the storms that were raging in and around people’s lives. Hebrews 13:8 says, “ Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.” He does not change. If Covid-19 has rattled you; you can trust in Him. If your future looks uncertain; you can trust in Him. Whatever is raging in your life, don’t let your heart be troubled, trust in God.
Thought for Today: When you trust in God, He calms your storm.
Have a blessed day and walk in faith and victory.
