With the political atmosphere not changing as much as we had hoped, it's hard not to concern ourselves with what may become of our country. However, the trials and tribulations the world is facing are not for us. It may impact us, but we are not the target because we have put our trust in Jesus. It's the evildoers who need to be scared. Tribulation may encourage more people to trust Jesus. We've all been through trials that helped us look to him as our source and to trust him with our lives. With all the chatter we hear on television and social media, it's easy to become fearful. Take a look at what the Bible says about fear:
By this is love perfected with us, so that we may have confidence for the day of judgment, because as he is so also are we in this world. There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love. 1 John 4:17-18
There is no reason to fear. When fear begins to overtake you, reach out to Jesus, who will comfort you with his love and calm you with his promises. Jesus has perfected love, so we can trust him to soothe our weary minds.
