THE CURE FOR WORRY
Toward the end of 1943, President Roosevelt, Prime Minister Churchill, and Joseph Stalin were scheduled to meet in Tehran, Iran, to discuss strategy in the water against Germany. As the three Leaders prepared for the trip, made even more dangerous by the ongoing war, Roosevelt wrote to Churchill and expressed some concern over the meeting location. He feared that Tehran was in range of German bombers and they could be subject to attack. Churchill sent back this message: “See St. John chapter 14, Verses 1 to 4.”
Those nine words and the truth of the Verses Churchill referenced, contain the cure for worry in any situation of life. Our faith is not that nothing will ever go wrong. Jesus spoke these words just hour before He was put to death on the cross; but He assured that God is in control and our eternal destiny is secure in Him. The more we believe in God, the less we worry. Troubled hearts reveal that we are not trusting Him as we should.
The reminder that Jesus gave to His disciples just before the crucifixion was that there is more than this world in our future. The burdens and troubles and trial of life are real but they are temporary. And the God who sees us through them has an eternity prepared for us. Nothing that anyone or anything in this world can do will change that. It is settled and secure according to the unfailing promise of Almighty God. Stop those worries now and hold on to God’s solution to worries – the Scriptures.
The Word of God is the solution for worry.
Oh Lord, remind me to always search the Scriptures in times of worry.
