Joy of My Heart with Anne Graham Lotz - December 7


December 7

Choosing to Trust

“Do not let your hearts be troubled.”

John 14:1, niv

 “Do not let your hearts be troubled” is a command you and I are to obey! Deliberately calming ourselves is a choice we are to make in the face of shocking setbacks,

catastrophic circumstances,

abrupt accidents,

irritating interruptions,

devastating dissension,

agonizing addiction,

frequent failures,

all of which cause us to be terrified of the consequences and repercussions. In the midst of the swirling, cloying fog of fear, Jesus commands, “Stop it!”

How in the world is it possible to obey a command that involves so much of our emotional feelings? Our obedience begins with a choice to stop being afraid, followed by a decision to start trusting God.
