There are fears, doubts, uncertainties and stresses everyday – you have them and I do too. The focus of the Christian life is not to ask God to eliminate them all, but to rest in in God’s love through it all. The Bible says that trials will always be present, and we are to count it all joy when the trials come and let God use them to mature us. When faced with a trial, I spend time with God and let Him remind me of how much He loves me. As I worship and adore Him, quietly listen to what He has to say to me, I would experience peace in my heart. Often after that, I don’t even need to have a clear answer to my problem, I just needed to know that I am loved by my Father in heaven, by my gracious Savior who knows me by name, who knows every problem of mine before I could even name them, who is already there in my future, who knows His good plans for me that will give me hope and who will rescue me from every harm. And then, I simply rest in His love. If there is any fear in you or a trial you are facing today, instead of thinking hard how to solve it, why not spend time in worship and quietly listen to the voice of the Shepherd? Rest in His love and see what He would do for you. Have a God-filled day!
“4 He has taken me to the banquet hall, and his banner over me is love. 5 Strengthen me with raisins, refresh me with apples, for I am faint with love. 6 His left arm is under my head, and his right arm embraces me.” (Song of Solomon 2:4-6)
