Because I Said So

For the word of the LORD is right and true; he is faithful in all he does. Psalm 33:4

Got a problem or issue you need help with? Try going to the word of God. It is so assuring and comforting especially in hard and confusing times. As I was preparing this devotion I began thinking of all the turmoil in our world and ways the news media keeps putting fear in the heart of man. Measles outbreak, Ebola crisis, missing aircraft, disasters, companies going bankrupt, rising taxes, changes in Biblical marriage, murder, rapes, suicides, wars, beheadings, kidnapping, missing children, and I am sure you can add to the list of what might cause you concern. The good news is that God wants you to trust Him. He is the real Master of the Universe and has things under control.

Some Biblical prophecy is being fulfilled, as many of us know, but still the word is there to comfort and assure you Jesus is Lord and He cares. The Bible says "Fear Not, Fret Not, Be Still, Love One Another, Don't Seek Your Own Revenge, Look Up, Believe in Me, Trust Me" among other promises. I did not include the verses but look in your Bible's concordance and you can find the related verses. 

If you are concerned about something try if nothing else remembering the God said to "Fear Not!" You can really have His perfect peace if you let this get into your inner most being and really trust Him.

PRAYER: Lord you are so good to me. You know the plans for this world and for me and I need not lose sleep over it. I will choose to look up to you instead of worrying about the news. In Jesus' name. Amen.

  1. Becky: You make a valid point when you say the media keeps trying to stir fear in our hearts. The unrest we saw and heard of this past summer and fall became a regular prayer request for one of the prayer groups I attend.
