Have no fear of sudden disaster or of the ruin that overtakes the wicked, for the Lord will be your confidence and will keep your foot from being snared. Proverbs 3:25-26

The world feels out of control. I watch the news and keep switching the channel or turn the TV off in disgust. Then later, the fear of ruin, or of violence, or of disaster seeps into my soul. When my daily routines are over, I can become anxious and unsettled. Sometimes I am even awakened in the night by the pounding of my heart. Still, even after many years of walking with Jesus and trusting in Him, I forget where my confidence is and will always be. I long for the peace Jesus offers and still, I lose it amidst all the noise and chaos of this world.

When I look to my God, my spirit is soothed. When I read how Jesus conducted Himself in the Gospels, when I read of all the truly unique, selfless, and wonderful things He taught, the unsettling of my soul and anxieties in my heart slowly dissapear. Jesus replaces the list of dangers that runs through my mind with words of assurance. Why then is this cycle still in my life? This is for certain. God has not moved...but I have.

It is for certain, I have become caught up in the cares of this world and moved away from the confidence and assurance I have in Jesus Christ. Then the Lord God called to Adam and said to him, “Where are you?” Genesis 3:9. How about you reader? Where are you?  

Insight: Even though I witness His hand on my life in so many ways and circumstances and He continually scatters my worries into passages of prayer, why do I still fall into worry? Why do I continually feel the need to isolate myself? Why can't I remember Jesus' profound words? Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.” Luke 21:28

Dear Lord, When I see the world's pain, may I not worry, become anxious or use Your protection as a reason for isolation. For Your Word says: A man who isolates himself seeks his own desire; He rages against all wise judgment. Proverbs 18:1  Instead, let me tap into Your love for empathy, compassion, and prayers of "Thy will be done." In Jesus' Name,  Amen

And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life, he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
1 John 5:11-12 cheers
