“He stated to them, “Why are you so afraid? Have you nevertheless no faith?” Mark four:40
Did you ever play any “trust games”? I keep in mind becoming blindfolded when and getting to trust that the a single top me would not permit me to trip on an unseen hazard and break my neck. It was an anxious quite a few minutes as that individual “led” me about.
In Hebrews 11:1, the Bible defines faith as this,
“Now faith is the assurance of issues hoped for, the conviction of issues not noticed.”
Each issues hoped for and issues not noticed imply future events, issues that have not occurred however. By way of faith we have assurance and conviction that God knows what the future will bring. We can be certain God is actual and that he loves us. We can have self-confidence that he will preserve his promises, because he often has, and will guide us by means of the obstacles that life holds, even when we can not see them in our path.
But worry of what could take place in the future can suck the courage — and the faith — appropriate out of us. We’re told more than and more than in Scripture not to worry. I have heard there are 365 references to not becoming afraid, a single for every single day of the year.
We can wholly trust Jesus even though he’s top us by means of the unseen hazards of life due to the fact he currently knows exactly where they are. We can be certain that no matter what occurs, he has promised salvation to these who place their faith in him.
Lord, enable me not to worry the unknown future. Let me keep in mind you currently know what lies ahead and will safely lead me by means of it. Assistance me banish worry and develop in faith and trust in you. Amen.
