Troubled by Trouble?

When you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be troubled; for such things must happen, but the end is not yet.
(Mark 13:7)
 
The newspapers are filled with troubling stories—frightening pandemics and deadly viruses; radical extremists swallowing vast chunks of the Middle East; biblical standards collapsing in a culture that no longer fears the Lord.
 
But remember, these things are predicted in advance. Notice that Jesus didn’t say “If you hear…,” but “When you hear….”
 
Trouble will come, yet our Lord told us not to be troubled by trouble.
 
The Psalms teach us the same lesson. Ponder these verses:

“In the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion....
This poor man cried out, and the Lord heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles....
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble....
Trouble and anguish have overtaken me, yet Your commandments are my delights…
Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me.”
(Psalm 27:5; 34:6; 46:1; 119:143; 138:7).
 
It’s not if but when. Yet God’s answer to trouble is trust; our answer to fear is faith.
 
Faith is the telegraphic wire which links earth and heaven.... Am I in trouble? I can obtain help for trouble by faith.
Charles Spurgeon, from his sermon “The Necessity of Increased Faith”

You are invited to have a personal relationship with God, your Creator!

To have a personal relationship with God, you must become a follower of Jesus. There is no other way. This decision must be a personal commitment from the heart. No one else can decide for you. This is the most important decision you will make in this life.  Here are the steps to become a child of God and experience His love and all of His blessings today:

Know that God loves you and desires to have a personal relationship with you.
For God so loved the world that He gave... (John 3:16)
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8)
See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!
(I John 3:1)

    
Admit that you have sinned against God.
All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23)

There is no one righteous, not even one; there is no one who understands; there is no one who seeks God.
All have turned away... there is no one who does good,
not even one. (Romans 3:10-12)
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 6:23)


    Believe, Repent, and Receive Jesus Christ as Savior.
He then brought them out and asked, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”
They replied, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved—you and your household.
(Acts 16:30-31)
Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord.
(Acts 3:19)
Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off—for all whom the Lord our God will call." (Acts 2:38-39)

But as many as received Him to them He gave the right to become children of God. (John
1:12)

   Declare your faith and let others know you have decided to follow Jesus
If you declare with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord", and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. (Romans 10:9-10)

Pray this prayer of commitment:
     Lord Jesus, I know that you love me. I admit that I am a sinner and need your forgiveness.
I choose to believe that You died to forgive me, to repent of my sin, and to follow you.
Right now, I receive you as my Savior and Lord, and ask you to come into my life forever. 
Thank you for hearing my prayer and giving me eternal life today.
      Amen
 
Trusting Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord is the most important thing you can ever do.
