Jesus Said, “Don’t Be Troubled, Don’t Be Afraid”

No matter what you’re going into this week, remember God has already gone before you. He has seen the days unfold and He is keeping you still. Those things which are out of your hands are already within His hands.

So as Christ says in John 14:1, “Don’t let your heart be troubled” as you choose a daily walk of surrender this week, trusting that He cares for the details of your life and will always have your best at heart. Remember you are never walking along when you are walking with Christ.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord. “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11

God is alive and present in your life, even more than you realize. He cares about the details of your life and He knows your desires and prayer requests. ⠀

Don’t be afraid to share your obstacles and struggles with Him- he is always listening. He cares about everything in your life and He wants you to talk to Him. The Bible says in 1 Peter 3:12 – “For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their prayer, but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.”⠀

Sometimes God will ask you to do things that you’re afraid of. Just because you’re afraid doesn’t mean you’re not supposed to do it. You have to get out of your comfort zone and do it afraid. If you play it safe all your life, you’ll never reach your full potential. That’s what faith is all about.

Your dream may look impossible, but God said His blessings will chase you down, that you’re surrounded by favor, that goodness and mercy are following you, that He wants to give you the desires of your heart. Don’t be afraid to ask big. Take the limits off of God.

Sometimes God will ask you to do things that you’re afraid of. Just because you’re afraid doesn’t mean you’re not supposed to do it. If you had all the confidence, all the courage to do it on your own, then it wouldn’t take faith.

Faith says, “God, I’m scared. I don’t know if I can speak in front of people. I don’t know if this new business is going to work. I don’t know if I have the talent, but I believe You put this in my heart, so I’m going to take a step of faith knowing that You’ll get me to where I’m supposed to be.”

You don’t have to live in fear; the favor of God is like a shield. Don’t go around worried and anxious. The Creator of the universe has you in the palm of His hand. Nothing can snatch you away.

When you face opposition, trouble and bad breaks, that’s when it’s easiest to let bitterness in and ask, “God, why did this happen to me?” In those times when you don’t understand it, more than ever you have to guard your heart. Come back to that place of peace and trust.
