Weekly Scripture Thought, June 3, 2012

Have you ever known someone who did not trust their parents?

Although some parents have failed in their duties, there is one Father who never has.

Even though He has never failed any of us, His children, He is often not fully trusted by us.  We often treat Him with concern when we pray, as though we are not sure if He really will do or even wants to do what is best for us.

Have you ever noticed this in your own prayer life?  Consider this:

Proverbs 3:25 “Have no fear of sudden disaster or of the ruin that overtakes the wicked.”

We are not to fear these things because we are in our Father’s hands, and He has promised to always be there through all of our trials and tribulations.  Yes, we do have trials and tribulations, but we need not fear these things, for our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, has promised to never leave us or forsake us! Heb 13:5, Mat 28:20

We do not need to fear as we walk in the earth, as we attend to our job, as we care for our household, as we buy or sell in the market; for He is with us!  But, right now, many Christians in the world are struggling with different forms of stress because of the threat of economic meltdown, the loss of their jobs, houses, etc.; but we need not fear the outcome of these things!  He has promised us, and are His words not trustworthy?

Let us stick to His words!  Let us walk in His ways!  Let us trust Him without hesitation!  I promise you, if you live this life, trusting the creator of your soul, knowing that if He gave His son up to the cross for you, how could he not also give you all things(Rom8:32), you will have people knocking on your door asking you why you have hope in such times as these.
