Why should we be worried when our Father isn't?11 Jun 2016
When we live out in these far-flung corners of the world, we can get into some pretty tricky and stressful situations.
This could be difficulty in finding housing, or some rumor that you can’t control, or a whole host of other things…
Whatever it is, the enemy works to paralyze us with anxiety or despair.
But no matter how bleak or overwhelming any situation may look, we need to remember that our heavenly Father isn’t phased at all. In fact, he’s never phased by anything.
Think about that for a second.
He cares way more about preserving your life and opening the right doors… and now situation or trial, no matter how messy or un-solvable it may seem is beyond his power.
So we just need to look to him, pray, and then take whatever 1 or 2 steps you can. Relax. He’s got it and he’s not freaking out. Trust him.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:6-7)
