Never Fear

While you have a few seconds before your next crisis, you check your smartphone’s news app to see what’s shakin.’  Is it wise to travel overseas now?  Does the “mass” in mass transit portend mass destruction?  Are our children safe at school?  

Has civilization unspooled to the point of no return, regardless of who we vote in to lead and protect us?

“Fear not.”  This phrase appears more than 365 times in the Bible.  It is God’s Son’s counsel for every situation where His followers feel out of control.  

Today Jesus’ words still ring true.  “Don’t be troubled.  Believe in God, and believe in Me.  My Father’s house has many rooms.  If that were not true, would I have told you that I’m going to prepare a place for you?  If I go to prepare a place for you, I will come again. Then I will bring you into My presence so that you will be where I am."

Do you believe that?  Enough to stake your very life on it?
