Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled
John 13:33 - 14:4
Dr. Don Wilton
We don’t know what tomorrow holds. It could bring joy and blessings or sorrow and grief. A troubled heart can result from something in the past, current circumstances, or worry about what might happen in the future. When Jesus spoke to his disciples in the upper room, before his arrest and crucifixion, he tried to prepare them for what was ahead. They didn’t fully understand, but perhaps, after his death, they remembered his words, “Let not your hearts be troubled.”
What are you facing? Are you in turmoil because you are in the middle of circumstances that are overwhelming? Life is not without difficulty, but thankfully, God doesn’t leave us to navigate hard situations on our own. As promised, the Holy Spirit is our advocate and comforter. Pray, releasing your difficulties to God. Read and quote scripture. Trust God to support you, sustain you, and ease your troubled heart. Then, praise Him for his unfailing mercy and love.
