We hear about and see a lot of disasters and tragedy. As Christians we need not live in fear of these as the Lord is with us.
Proverbs 3:25 (NKJV) Do not be afraid of sudden terror, Nor of trouble from the wicked when it comes;
Nuclear war. Crashing economy. ISIS. Syria. Terrorism. Riots. Natural disaster. Cancer. Lying. Murder. Theft. Persecution. Job loss. Divorce. Rebellion. Disease. Accidents.
There are a lot of ways “sudden terror” and trouble can rear its ugly head in our lives. And there always will be until God dissolves this sin-cursed world and gifts us with a New Heaven and New Earth, as well as a sin-free glorified eternal body.
There’s no need to be afraid (genuine fear and despair) of this world’s terror and trouble because we already know The End. And we win.
Think It Over: Well, not all “we”. Only the “we” who have recognized their lost condition and helpless sinfulness and have said to Jesus “be merciful to me a sinner!” If you aren’t part of “we”, today is the day of salvation. Jesus could return at any moment (literally). Don’t be left out or left behind. Put your faith (trust in action) in Jesus now.
