God revealed in all of us
Dear Customers and Friends:
In an earlier Faith Over Fear, I urged you to see past the ugly pandemic to witness all of God’s beautiful creations like the budding flowers of spring.
So too is God among each of us, His children – and especially glorified in the courage and hearts of the many heroes of this ongoing health crisis. With God in our everyday lives, Jesus reminded us long ago to not let our hearts be troubled.
I hope you’ll take time to read the following excerpts from a recent devotional by Kenneth Samuel, a pastor from Stone Mountain, Ga.
Blessed to be a Blessing,
President, Syfan Logistics
“Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me.”
Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled
Troubling times. Troubled minds. News reports full of trouble. Health care systems in dire trouble. A deeply troubled economy. Trouble on every side.
Jesus knew something about trouble.
In between Jesus’ prediction of his betrayal in John 13:21 and the troublesome realization of his betrayal in the Garden of Gethsemane, He turned to his disciples and said, “Let not your hearts be troubled.”
Jesus invites us to not only believe in God’s eternal existence. Jesus invites us to believe in God’s very present presence. “Ye believe in God. Believe also in me – the presence of God in you and among you, right now.”
The presence of God expressed in the dedication of health care professionals. And food suppliers. And grocery store workers. And sanitation and cleaning service personnel.
The presence of God expressed in the challenge we all now face to differentiate that which is tangential to life from that which is essential to life.
The presence of God expressed in calls and texts that touch the hearts of friends and loved ones.
God, help us to realize the cure for our ‘heart trouble’ in your never-failing presence. Amen.
