Worry or Rest

    I once heard someone say, "I am a born worry-wart." This is true of all of us. Whatever failure or sin we have, we are born with it. But since we have been born again in Christ by the grace of God, we have certain qualities and graces we did not have before. One of these graces is TRUST. We trust our Heavenly Father as a small child trusts his earthly father.

    Our Heavenly Father loves us much more than we are capable of loving our children, and He has all power and authority over any demon or danger we may encounter! A natural father does not have such power and is limited in his ability to protect or care for the child of his love. Do you and I not realize that no person, no power, no disease, no death can touch one of His own without His permission? Did not Satan himself say of Job, "God, have you not put a hedge about him, and his house, and all that he has, on every side"?  Did not David write, "A thousand shall fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand, but it shall not come near you"?

    Dear believer, whoever you are, wherever you are, whatever danger you may imagine, TRUST your Father and REST in His arms. "He will not leave you nor forsake you, so that you may boldly say, the Lord is my helper, I WILL NOT FEAR."
