~ Commands for Anxious Times ~
Fear Not ~ “For I, the Lord your God, will hold your right hand, saying to you, ‘Fear not, I will help you. Fear not, you worm Jacob, you men of Israel! I will help you,’ says the Lord and your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel” (Isaiah 41:13-14). ~ FEAR NOT is a word of pardon!
Fret Not ~ “Fret not because of evildoers, nor be envious of the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb” (Psalm 37:1-2). ~ FRET NOT is a word of peace!
Faint Not ~ “Therefore we faint not. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal” (2 Corinthians 4:16-18). ~ FAINT NOT is a word of power!
summary: Can you trust the details of your everyday life to the Creator who knows the number of hairs on your head? If you worry too much could it be a theological problem? What do you think? Comments please!
