Are we letting our fears affect our complete trust in God?
The Israelites were frightened by the approaching danger. They complained to Moses about following God. Moses’ response is to be still since God is always fighting for his people.
In times of trouble do we turn to blaming others? Do we dare even blame God? Why do we struggle with our problems when instead we should rely on God to lead us past them?
God is always in control. As God guides us through life God will continue to fight for us. For our safety and protection. We may experience pain but our souls will be untouched. Why then do we worry?
Part of our struggle may be that we assume we need to be the ones to solve the problems when it is God who is directing our lives. What we need to do is be still in our thoughts and actions and offer our fears up to God.
Let us put aside our concerns today in prayer and focus on how awesome God is. On how God the creator is always caring for us and leading us through all struggles. Let us remember to hold on to God and never let go.
