TOPIC: Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR
1 Chronicles 10–12; John 6:45–71
John 14:1 – Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
Trouble will always find its way into human hearts but how still and peaceful the heart can be in the midst of trouble determines the longevity of its stay. Be still!
PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY
I speak into that situation troubling you now. it will end in praise, in the mighty Name of Jesus.
22 Jesus said to his followers, “So I tell you, don’t worry about the things you need to live—what you will eat or what you will wear. 23 Life is more important than food, and the body is more important than what you put on it.
24 Look at the birds. They don’t plant, harvest, or save food in houses or barns, but God feeds them. And you are worth much more than crows.
25 None of you can add any time to your life by worrying about it. 26 And if you can’t do the little things, why worry about the big things?
27 “Think about how the wildflowers grow. They don’t work or make clothes for themselves. But I tell you that even Solomon, the great and rich king, was not dressed as beautifully as one of these flowers.
28 If God makes what grows in the field so beautiful, what do you think he will do for you? That’s just grass—one day it’s alive, and the next day someone throws it into a fire. But God cares enough to make it beautiful. Surely he will do much more for you. Your faith is so small!
29 “So don’t always think about what you will eat or what you will drink. Don’t worry about it.
30 That’s what all those people who don’t know God are always thinking about. But your Father knows that you need these things.
31 What you should be thinking about is God’s kingdom. Then he will give you all these other things you need.
Don’t Trust in Money
32 “Don’t fear, little flock. Your Father wants to share his kingdom with you.
MFM MOUNTAIN TOP LIFE DEVOTIONAL MESSAGE:
Man, that is born of a woman is born into trouble. Whether poor or rich, good or bad, believer or unbeliever, every human will have a taste of a troubled experience in his/her lifetime. However, the degree at which troubles come to everyone differs. Troubles are part of life, whether we like it or not, but our attitude towards it will determine how it gets to make or mar us.
Beloved, when trouble comes, let not your heart be unsettled. If you allow your heart to be troubled, it will pave the way for more troubles and fears than the heart can handle. Note that all great heroes and heroines all through ages have stories of dark hours to tell.
One beautiful thing about this phase of life is that it has produced giants, both in the kingdom of God and in the secular world. A lot of people get to discover their treasures during these troubled moments. But sadly too, such moments have swallowed others who could not see the light at the end of the tunnel. The difference, therefore, is perception and choice.
I charge you to trust in the Lord with all your heart at such times. Be in the company of like- minded believers who can sharpen you. Get yourself addicted to God’s Word, take ample time to rest, take a break from stress, exercise your body, eat well, take a walk.
Sometimes, listen to inspiring music, have good sleep, and most importantly, help someone else going through troubles. All these will help to get you to calm down during troubled moments. Don’t worry. Cheer up; it shall end in praise and testimonies, in Jesus’ Name.
Beloved, Jesus’ statement, “Let not your heart be troubled” implies that you have control over how you respond to the burdens and challenges you face in life. God expects you to be calm and trust Him even in uncertain circumstances. This is because we serve a living God who cares for His children. He has defeated the darkness of this world and we are in His winning team. Those who have courageous trust in Him will be free from worries and will enjoy His peace.
1. Father, I thank You for the gift of life because I know since I am still living, there is hope for me, in the Name of Jesus.
2. Father, as I go out today, lead me not into temptation and troubles, in the Name of Jesus.
3. O God, arise and deliver me from every evil programmed into this day, in the Name of Jesus.
4. Every pit of trouble dug for me and my family, swallow your digger, in the Name of Jesus.
5. You the troubler of my Israel, the God of Elijah shall trouble you today, in the Name of Jesus.
6. The peace of God that the world cannot understand and decode, fall upon my life and family, in the Name of Jesus.
7. Father, give me rest on every side, in the Name of Jesus.
