“The beginning of anxiety is the end of faith, and the beginning of true faith is the end of anxiety.” George Mueller
Have you ever felt anxious about something. Maybe it’s not a specific something, maybe it’s the unknown…a mystery…a beginning or a muddled middle or an obscure end you just can’t quite see around the bend. It’s so easy to allow anxiety to overtake us and paralyze us. I have certainly been in those situations in my life, and I will be again. We all face them. We’re going along and things seem to be going well then…whoops, out of no where comes something that startles us or trips us up. Anxiety can be a huge roadblock in our lives. I have climbed over it many times. But God doesn’t want us to live that way. He wants us to trust Him. He is bigger than all of our problems. 2 Chronicles 14:11 says, “…Lord, there is no one like you to help the powerless against the mighty.” I love that! It is so true. And God loves to rescue us. He is the best hero, better than any we could find in a book or movie. And He’s never late. Streams in the Desert says, “Believe that He is between you and your difficulty, and what troubles you will flee before Him, as clouds in the wind.”
Believe. “Cast all your cares before Him.” “Be anxious for nothing.” Nothing.
