Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled

October 3, 2018


Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled

When we let ourselves  get caught up  in the busyness and troubles  we face every day,   we lose what should be  our true focus.     We become anxious,  worried,  fretful,  and depressed  because we have lost the real perspective  of our lives  on earth.

For whatever we have to face  in our daily lives,  Jesus reminds us  of what should be foremost  in our hearts  and minds.     In John 14:1-3,  Jesus says,

Let not your heart be troubled;  believe in God,  believe also in Me.     In My Father’s house  are many dwelling places;  if it were not so,  I would have told you;  for I go to prepare a place  for you.     And if I go  and prepare a place  for you,  I will come again,  and receive you  to Myself,  that where I am,  there you may be also.

All the biblical prophecies  that came true  in Christ Jesus  prove beyond a doubt  that God keeps His promises.     Every word in the Bible  can be trusted,  because God has shown  that He does not lie.     When we see  how God has kept His promises,  we can believe God  and our Savior,  Jesus Christ — really and always believe.

That brings us  to the right perspective  of remembering  that we will not have our troubles,  aches,  and pains  forever.     They are all temporary.     Our heavenly home  with God  is what is eternal.     That is what we need  to constantly remember.     As we put our trust  in God Almighty,  He will at last take us  to our heavenly home,  where we will have peace  and rest  in all the glory  of the LORD forever.

We are not even alone  here on earth.     Jesus is with us now  and has promised  to never,  ever leave us.     But,  our faith  in that truth  will be repeatedly tested  our whole time  here on earth.     For every time we are tested,  we need  to go back  to the proven truths  of God’s word.     Because so many  of our tests  are so heart-wrenchingly painful,  it is vital  that we stay focused  on the truth  of our situation.

God is still God  and always will be God — the Almighty,  our Redeemer,  Savior,  and King.     He will take us  to our eternal home some day.     In the mean time,  “Let not your heart be troubled.”

Always looking  to our Lord  and putting our confidence  in Him,   we say,  “Hallelujah!      Lord,  thank You  for always faithfully being near me  and strengthening me,  even when my faith  is being stretched  to the limit.”
