“I’m Really Scared ๐Ÿ˜จ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ™€ . . .” GODโœ๏ธis with us in ALL our struggles.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™Œ and petition, with thanksgiving ๐Ÿฆƒ, present your requests to GODโœ๏ธ.โ€”Philippians 4:6

โ€œIโ€™m really scared.โ€ This was the poignant note a teenager posted to friends on Facebook as she told them of some upcoming medical tests. She was facing hospitalization and a series of procedures in a city three hours from home and anxiously waited as doctors tried to discover the source of some serious medical problems she was experiencing.

Who of us, in youth or later years, has not felt similar fears when facing unwanted life events that are truly frightening? And where can we turn for help? What comfort can we find from Scripture to give us courage in these kinds of situations?
The reality that GOD will go with us through our trial can help us to hope. Isaiah 41:13 tells us, โ€œFor I.AM the LORD your GOD who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, โ€˜Do not fear; I will help you.โ€™ โ€
In addition, GOD offers indescribable, heart-guarding peace when we present our difficulties to Him in prayer (Phil. 4:6-7).
Through GODโ€™S unfailing presence and His peace that โ€œtranscends all understandingโ€ (v. 7), we can find the hope and help we need to endure situations in which we are really scared. โ€”Dave Branon

Dear heavenly FATHER, when I am afraid, remind me that You hold my hand and give me peace. Iโ€™m grateful that I can lean into Your arms and find help when Iโ€™m scared. You are good to me.

GODโœ๏ธis with us in ALL our struggles.

INSIGHT: Peter, Paul, and Silas had many reasons to worry. Acts 12 describes Peterโ€™s unjust imprisonment by King Herod for seven to eight days and his upcoming trialโ€”with death the nearly certain outcome (vv. 2-6). But Peter didnโ€™t lose any sleep over his trial and impending death; the Scriptures record he โ€œwas sleeping between two soldiersโ€ (v. 6). Peter experienced the peace that can come only through trusting GOD.

Paul and Silas were brutally beaten and unjustly imprisoned (Acts 16:22-24). Instead of worrying, they praised GOD through the night (v. 25). They experienced joy and peace in the midst of lifeโ€™s terrors.This is the tranquility Paul wrote about in Philippians 4:6-7. When we canโ€™t sleep because weโ€™re troubled by the trials of life, we can talk to our Good Shepherd. We can cast all our anxiety on Him because He cares for us (1 Peter 5:7). Surely we can say with David, โ€œIn peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, O LORD, will keep me safeโ€ (Ps. 4:8 nlt).
Are you struggling with anxiety? Why not meditate on Psalm 16:7-11 and ask GOD to help you experience the JOY and peace that come from Him.  Sim Kay Tee
