Place of safety

Place of safety

Do not worry. Have faith. Trust in the Lord. Give thanks for His blessings and mercies in disguise.

Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life?  Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?” Luke 12:22

Sit quietly with Me, letting all your fears and worries bubble up to the surface of your consciousness. There, in the Light of My Presence, the bubbles pop and disappear. However, some fears surface over and over again, especially fear of the future. You tend to project yourself mentally into the next day, week, month, year, decade; and you visualize yourself coping badly in those times. What you are seeing is a false image, because it doesn’t include Me. Those gloomy times that you imagine will not come to pass, since My Presence will be with you at all times. -Sarah Young, Jesus Calling

Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” Deuteronomy 31:6

When a future-oriented worry assails you, capture it and disarm it by suffusing the Light of My Presence into that mental image. Say to yourself, “Jesus will be with me then and there. With His help, I can cope!” Then, come home to the present moment where you can enjoy Peace in My Presence. -Sarah Young, Jesus Calling

Faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1

Trusting God means looking beyond what we can see to what God sees. Faith is at the heart of everything we believe and everything we are in the Christian life.  God is willing to give you the capacity to see what the human eye cannot see. When there is no evidence and no reason to believe His promise will be fulfilled, the Father gives you the ability to see it finished, completed, and done. -Walking With God: Life Principle #9

Do not fret because of evildoers, be not envious toward wrongdoers. For they will wither quickly like the grass and fade like the green herb. Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and cultivate faithfulness. Delight yourself in the Lord; and He will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him, and He will do it.” Psalm 37:1
