These times of uncertainty, fear, and panic. These emotions are human. God gave us emotions. But, I’d like to relay to you an encouragement. First of all, God created everything. The fact that we didn’t know this was going to happen does not change the fact that God did. The very first four words of the Bible are, “In the beginning, God.” He is the Creator and Ruler of all that is.
With that in mind, consider another passage.
Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by name, thou art mine.”Isaiah 43:1
Now although this was before the age of the indwelling Holy Spirit, this is the same God that said that we are redeemed! My friends, fellow brothers and sisters in Christ: We are redeemed! The God Who created the universe and everything that is has called us His own. We are His children. There is no need to fear because nothing catches God by surprise. That means I don’t have to worry about this life’s feeble problems, and I can give it all to the God who created it all. If we give it all to Christ then we need to leave it there.
We are told around 80 times not to fear. Because once we accept God’s gift of eternal life, we are His redeemed children.
I hope this is an encouragement to you. Give it all to Christ, O redeemed ones.
Your brother in Christ,
