Commands of Christ: 85

Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God and in Me.

“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You have faith in God; have faith also in me.”  John 14:1

Jesus said this in the context of the Last Supper.  He said this to strengthen the hearts of the eleven disciples in anticipation of their confusion and fear at what was about to happen over the following 24 hours.  He wanted them to know that none of it would take God by surprise.  The future, His future, and their future with Him were assured.  We need to take His instructions to heart in the midst of our own dark days when fear and confusion are real temptations.
