Why Are You So Fearful

Prodigal: Well dab burn it!

Me: What?

Prodigal: I forgot to get cash.

Me: I can help you.

This is from the book Joy in Christ’s Presence by Charles Spurgeon

“Why are ye so fearful? How is it that ye have no faith?” (Mark 4:40). Faith and calm go together. If you believe, you will rest; if you will simply cast yourself upon your God, surrendering absolutely to His will, you will have mercy, joy, and light. Even if we have no faith, the Lord will sometimes give us the blessing that we need, for He delights to do more for us than we have any right to expect of Him. However, usually the rule of His kingdom is, “According to your faith be it unto you’ (Matthew 9:29)

Do not be afraid just because you do not understand what is happening. The plan will unfold step by step and you will see the Lord’s hand in it. You will see the people that will be involved and what you will have to do. Right now it is more about a stillness. Right now is more about some rest and quiet.

1 Peter 2:9

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marveous light.
