John 14:1 “Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in me.”
In Jesus Christ we don’t have to be troubled. We have so many struggles that sideline us. Even normal everyday things seem to catch us off guard sometimes, throwing us into a tail spin.
The weather can turn everything upside down. Besides spoiling our plans, it can cause havoc when things flood or get washed away. Sometimes it’s as simple as backing up things (toilet, washing machine) in your home, but at times it can cause loss of life when a home or car is swept away.
A close friend may get transferred or move away. A family member might cause a rift in your relationship. You may lose a job, or have a cut in pay or hours. So many things can cause us to be depressed or worried.
But in Christ we have a secure future. We can be calm in the face of trouble because Jesus is coming back for His bride (those that are saved). He said, “I will never leave you or forsake you.” (Hebrews 13:5) No matter the storm.
