TOPIC: Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled

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.

John 14:1


PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY: I speak into that situation troubling you now, it will end in praise, in the mighty name of Jesus.

FIRE SCRIPTURE: Luke 12:22-32

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Nehemiah 5 – 7; John 1 – 2

MFM Daily Devotional 20 May 2023 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 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 the 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, and 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.
