There in comfort in Jesus!

In the last couple weeks we have all been saturated with the words “Corona virus”. I am sure that we are all tiring of hearing about it. But the reality is we are in an unprecedented time in the history of our nation and the world. Fear has gripped the hearts of many people, it has become the norm in life for most people right now, just look at the grocery stores for evidence of the panic that we are feeling as a people today.

We have heard many people from our President to our Pastors telling us to have courage, and we should all have courage in this time. That being said, courage is not the absence of fear and in fact we could not know courage if we did not know fear. John Wayne is attributed with saying that “Courage is being scared to death and saddling up anyway”.

I want to encourage you today and say that in the midst of all that is going on Jesus is still King and God is still on the Throne! He has the comfort, grace and courage that we all need not just in these times but for all the times of life that cause us to fear and worry.

Jesus said in Matt 10:29-31:

29 Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin? And not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father’s will. 30 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. 31 Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.”

The hope we need is in Jesus, the courage we need is in Jesus the comfort and confidence we need is found in Jesus! turn to Him today and He will turn His goodness and grace to you.

In troubling times we can all find the peace we need in Jesus!

Philippians 4:6-7: “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
