Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 10/23/16

This week’s scripture is from John:

jesus_white“Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”     (John 14:27b)

We are living in troubling times when many things in the world seem uncertain and the choices before us offer little comfort or assurance. And the future may not seem as bright as we once thought or hoped. Perhaps we are also experiencing troubles in our own lives and we can’t see if there is any light ahead. We may feel we are straining against the darkness and struggling to keep our head up. But the Lord is not troubled or uncertain, and He has not left us as orphans; we are not alone, for He has sent His Holy Spirit to be with us, to live in us. He has not given us a spirit of fear, but a spirit of peace, a spirit of power, and a spirit of hope. Therefore, let us set our hearts upon the Lord and praise Him; let us turn from our troubles and trust Him who is faithful; let us trust Him who fights for us, the One who is always victorious.

May the Lord bless your heart with peace.
