Every day we are faced with issues, situations, thoughts and attitudes that challenge us. They challenge our attitude, behaviour, thinking and sometimes even our faith. We can then get lost in our pattern of thought that we think will lead us to an answer, when it really just leads to more doubt and fear.
I love what my friend, Will Marais, says “when you don’t know what to think, think about what you know.” He shared this after telling of his shock after the death of his only son. This grabbed hold of my heart. What do I do when my faith gets shaken, when my beliefs get challenged and my way of life comes crumbling down?
I go back to what I know. And what do I know? That I believe in God the Father, Christ the Son and the Holy Spirit – my God is three in one. I believe in the resurrection, that Jesus will come again and that Jesus is Lord.
This is what I believe. No matter what happens, not matter how little I understand of anything else, I will always know this of my God: that he loves me with an everlasting love.
When I read about David in the Bible I see more and more of how conflicted he was. He was always trying to make sense of things happening in his world. He just couldn’t understand so much of what went on in life. But he would always, always, always return to God and take comfort in his unfailing love for him.
When my worry is great within me, Your comfort brings joy to my soul. Psalm 94:19
If you’re worried today, troubled or afraid – find your comfort in the eternal love of God that is steadfast, secure and immovable. Stand on Christ as your cornerstone. He will not change. Take comfort today in our Sovereign God. Nothing and no one is greater than Him.
Do you need reminding of who God is in your life? Listen to this, I promise it will strengthen your faith and bring peace to your heart. ‘
