Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.
Reflection. Constant change. It is all around us. It happens for the good- it happens for the bad. Anxiety is bred through it. Fear comes with it- but so does happiness, and excitement! The fear of the unknown, what will take place next, it happens often. Will we be employed, will this be the last day on Earth for us, will the economy fold, or will it get better, what travesty will unfold before our eyes, when will a child be born, when will a love one die- it is all around us, and to an awful extent can lead to un-needed anxiety. But what does scripture tell us. Let’s take a look:
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.
So you see (and there are many more passages in scripture like it), if we have faith in the Almighty, that is in our savior, Jesus Christ, we really have nothing to fear. We must proclaim our faith out-right, that is, not internalizing our fears, but making them known to our Lord. We must offer up our tribulations and anxiety to Him as a sacrifice, as He did for us, at Cavalry upon the Cross, so that we may have ever-lasting life in Him and with Him. So with that, never fear! God knows are tribulations, and knows are anxiety, but He also knows what we can handle, and will never lead us astray! God Bless! ~CJA
Desire without knowledge is not good, and whoever makes haste with his feet misses his way.
