When you lie down, you will not be afraid; when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet. Do not be afraid of sudden fear nor of the onslaught of the wicked when it comes; for the Lord will be your confidence … Proverbs 3:24-26

With all that’s going on in today’s world, it seems one wants to keep an eye open all the time. Violence. Terrorism. Panic. Fear. The anxiety of what is going to happen next often haunts our thoughts. If we allow our emotion to go unchecked, fear can consume and paralyze us, and quickly rob us of peace.

But there is “a peace that passes all understanding,” according to scripture in Philippians 4:7. This is a peace given us by the person of Jesus Christ through His Holy Spirit. While the believer is not promised immunity from the fear or trouble of this world, we are assured that our confidence is well placed in Jesus. We can face whatever confronts us … head on … knowing our eternal security is sealed, and we do not have to live with that debilitating fear or doubt. Certainly, the person in Christ does not foolishly stick their head in the sand, but we can face our challenges with a power beyond our own strength. That is Jesus living in and through us.

Although there is a lot of bad news all around us, there is even better news to be shared. The very Word of God offers hope to a hurting world … internal peace in the midst of external fear … and even the Person of Jesus Christ as a personal savior to anyone that calls upon His name in faith and repentance.

Right From The Heart Ministries is dedicated to offering these glimpses of Good News to all that will listen, even to the uttermost parts of the world. So, when you still yourself tonight before sleep, wherever you may be, know the peace of God is available to calm your fears. Yes, there is evil in this world but Jesus will ultimately conquer it. Don’t forget He is still in control. Pray for yourself. Pray for your neighbor. Rest in the arms of Jesus.

In Christ,
