“PREPARED TO TRUST”
“Do not be afraid, because I am with you; do not be discouraged, because I am your God. I will give you strength and help you; I will hold you with my victorious right hand.”
Fear is the most extreme feeling a human being can experience; It may either paralyze you in such a way that you cannot react and lose yourself in anguish and uncertainty or it may stimulate you the motivation to trust that the LORD sustains you and will give you the way out at the end.
Many of those who think they have faith in GOD are actually dominated by fears and doubts, overwhelmed by the circumstances of life, slaves to the uncertainty of the future or imprisoned by mistakes made in the past.
Is there anything that makes you nervous today? .. is it something you fear you will never achieve or receive? Understanding genuine faith means realizing that GOD wants to provide the best for us and will not allow us to get lost as we walk with Him.
However, sometimes what GOD perceives as the best for us is different from what we think. Still cheer up, the one who created us, ultimately knows what will actually give our soul satisfaction even better than ourselves. Let us put aside fear, He is faithful to provide and if GOD does not give us what the now heart desires, it is because He has planned something much better.
Beloved LORD, grant us the courage not to fear when we face a test in our lives. We trust that You will provide the best, you will lead us along the path of goodness and you will be careful not to fall into the distractions that take us away from Your teachings. Thank you for satisfying the deepest desires of the heart. In the name of JESUS. Amen and Amen.
