“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not be afraid.”
- John 14:27
Do you worry about the future or find yourself overthinking every situation imagining the worst-case scenario outcomes?
Perhaps that is why God tells us 365 times in the Bible not to fear.
Instead, He tells us to place our trust in Him!
Walking with Christ turns life into an exciting journey.
Our daily battles can be great victories when we focus our energies and minds on Jesus and His Word.
Trusting God keeps us anchored in the present and unburdened by fear or regret.
However, when we worry, it steals our joy and multiplies our anxieties. That’s why we it is important to learn to focus on God’s wisdom. It truly counteracts the incessant fear.
God’s Word tells us, “Don’t be troubled or afraid.”
In return, when we trust Him, we receive His peace, surpassing all our understanding.
Trusting God, while walking together with Him daily, keeps us focused on the present, not consumed by fear of the future or burdened by regrets of the past. Worry never solves anything; it only steals our present joy.
Today can you put your trust in Jesus and give Him your fears?
Prayer: Jesus, thank you for being with me every second of the day, ready to give me love and peace. Today, I ask you to wrap me up in your comforting embrace. Amen.
