Feeling Troubled?

It was a decisive moment for Jesus disciples. As they gathered together to celebrate the Passover, He made it clear that dramatic changes were coming. He even told them that one of them would betray Him.

In light of these stunning developments, it would have been natural for them to feel worried and anxious. Seeking to calm their spirits, Jesus told the disciples not to let their hearts be troubled. He used a Greek word that suggests being agitated. Feeling restless. Overwhelmed with fear. Perplexed about how to respond.

Many things that can create these kinds of reactions. At times we experience seemingly insurmountable problems. Our hearts are stirred, and our emotions seem out of control. It is hard to think clearly and we don’t know what to do.

In any condition, Jesus words have special meaning. He said, Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me.

When anything starts to worry or trouble us, we need to turn to Jesus. To focus on Him. We do not need to fear any person or situation, whether big or small. Jesus has prepared a place for us.

Is your heart filled with any troubles? Are you worried? Afraid? Restless? Perplexed? These are opportunities to trust in Jesus. Commit your needs to Him. Ask Him to take away any worries. Seek His peace.
