No Need to Fear

One of those days when I feel that things are spiraling out of control; when circumstances make me angry and fearful and frustrated – all alone.

I need to think on this and meditate on it:

 

Fear lives and rules in the heart of a believer who has forgotten God’s sovereignty and grace.

If left to myself, I should be afraid. There are many trials, temptations, dangers, and enemies in this fallen world that are bigger and more powerful than me. I have to deal with many things that are outside my control.

But the message of the gospel is that I haven’t been left to myself, that Immanuel is with me in sovereign authority and powerful grace.

He rules with perfect wisdom over all the circumstances and locations that would make me afraid.

In grace, he blesses me with what I need to face what he has decided to put on my plate.

I am never— in anything, anywhere, at any time— by myself.

I never arrive on scene first.

I never step into a situation that exists outside his control.

I never move beyond the reach of his authority.

He is never surprised by where I end up or by what I am facing.

He never leaves me to the limited resources of my own wisdom, strength, and righteousness.

He never grows weary with protecting and providing for me.

He will never abandon me out of frustration.

I do not need to be afraid.

We Will All One Day Die ….

March 10, 2014

  Not necessarily want we want to hear, but it’s the truth nonetheless. What if I live my life in relative obscurity and quietness? Will Christ be enough? What if my dreams are never fulfilled? Will Christ be enough? This really got me thinking ….. how about you, do you ever think that one day […]

Christian Charity

January 29, 2014

  Real personal charity is hard. As Dutch statesman and theologian Abraham Kuyper explained: “[T]he holy art of “giving for Jesus’ sake” ought to be much more strongly developed among us Christians. Never forget that all state relief for the poor is a blot on the honor of your savior. The fact that the government […]

The Message of Christmas

December 23, 2013

Do I Care?…part 2

October 23, 2013

  I wonder, how full – or empty – would our churches in North America be if this was a regular occurrence or a daily possibility for Christians in this part of the world? We can’t remain ignorant or insensitive to what is going on in the world around us. God help us to take […]
