Religion and Concern


“He stated to them,Why are you so afraid? Have you ever nonetheless no religion?”  Mark 4:40

Did you ever play any “belief video games”? I keep in mind being blindfolded as soon as and having to belief that the one main me wouldn’t permit me to journey on an unseen hazard and break my neck. It was an anxious a number of minutes as that individual “led” me round.

In Hebrews 11:1, the Bible defines religion as this,

“Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.”

Each issues hoped for and issues not seen suggest future occasions, issues that haven’t occurred but. By way of religion we’ve assurance and conviction that God is aware of what the longer term will carry. We will be certain God is actual and that he loves us. We are able to believe that he’ll maintain his guarantees, since he all the time has, and can information us by way of the obstacles that life holds, even after we can not see them in our path.

However worry of what would possibly occur sooner or later can suck the braveness — and the religion — proper out of us. We’re informed time and again in Scripture to not worry. I’ve heard there are 365 references to not being afraid, one for every day of the yr.

We are able to wholly belief Jesus whereas he’s main us by way of the unseen hazards of life as a result of he already is aware of the place they’re. We are able to make sure that it doesn’t matter what occurs, he has promised salvation to those that put their religion in him.

Lord, assist me to not worry the unknown future. Let me keep in mind you already know what lies forward and can safely lead me by way of it. Assist me banish worry and develop in religion and belief in you. Amen.
