Untroubled Life

Re: Verse reading–John 14:1-14 (day one)
“Let not your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me”–v 1.  It is a power I never knew I had!  The power to prevent anxiety, the responsibility to stop fear before it washes over my heart and hope.  John uses a word (tarasso) which meant, “to stir up, to agitate, to trouble”.  He reports the command Christ gave His disciples (and us) to refuse fear, to replace and defeat it by belief.  “Believe!” says the Lord.  Believe in God!  Believe in Christ!  Place your full confidence in His sufficiency and wisdom and love.  Even when days grow dark or disappointing, don’t wander off from this declaration of trust.  “Do not be afraid any longer”, the Lord said to the grieving and anxious synagogue official in Mark 5.  “Only believe!”  ONLY believe! Allow nothing else into your heart.  It is always His message to those who love Him.   The result is always peace.
