If you only have eyes that see the physical realm, then you will say we live in a broken world. Just turn on the news and uneasiness creeps in. Then there’s the roller coaster ride our retirement savings are taking on Wall Street. Will things ever get better?
As believers in Jesus Christ, we know there is a spiritual side of life! And believers have confidence in knowing that he holds this world in His hands. This is not our real home; we are just pilgrims traveling through.
That doesn’t mean we are immune to being caught up in the chorus of distress sweeping across the planet.
Learning to trust God to quiet our hearts
Many of us manage uncertainty in different ways. How are you holding up physically? Headaches? Muscle tension? Digestive or sleep problems? How can we stop the anxiety and fear, and instead trust in the Lord with all our heart?
After all Jesus said, “In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33. And later Paul wrote, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” Philippians 4:6
It sounds so easy but how can we untangle our minds?
Consider enrolling in a Bible class at LLEM Bible College
Really? Now? Yes, now! The earth has orbited once around the sun since this pandemic caused us to all lockdown. And it’s still lingering! Those who have used this time to focus on their spiritual growth are to be envied. But it’s not too late.
Biblical education is beneficial for managing crazy times and out of control thoughts that are whizzing around inside our heads. Paul instructs, “Set your mind on things above, not on earthly things.” (Colossians 3:2) And again he says to the Romans, “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind.” Just as we decide what food enters our mouth, we must purposefully choose what we feed our minds. Each day is a precious gift. One great way to thank God for this day is to redirect your time and energy into studying His word and glorifying him with your mind.
