The one great crime on the part of a disciple, according to Jesus Christ, is worry.
Whenever we begin to calculate without God, we commit sin.
"Fret not yourself; it tends only to evil" Psalm 37:8
Very few of us will face facts; we prefer our fictions. Our Lord teaches us to look things full in the face, and he says, "When you hear of wars and tumults, do not be terrified."
It is the most natural thing in the world to be scared. There is no natural heart of man or woman that is not scared by these things, and the evidence that God's grace is at work among us is that we do not get terrified.
Our attitude must be – "Father, I do not know what these things mean: it looks like starvation and distress, but you have said, "Do not be terrified,' so I will not be; and you have said, "Let not your heart be troubled' (John 14:1), so I will not let it be; and I stake my confidence in you." That is the real testimony.
It is very easy to trust God when there is no difficulty, but that is not trust at all; it is simply letting the mind rest in a complacent mood; but when there is sickness in the house, when there is trouble, when there is death, where is our trust in God?
The clearest evidence that God's grace is at work in our hearts is that we do not get into panics. ~ Oswald Chambers / Christian Disciples "The Impulse Of Panic"
See, God has come to rescue me; I will trust in Him and not be afraid, For the Eternal, indeed, the Eternal is my strength and my song. My very own God has rescued me. ~ Isaiah 12:2 VOICE
