Behind the design: Troubled

“A troubled world doesn’t have to mean a troubled heart.”

the list goes on and on. from financial struggles to sickness to mental illness to broken homes to political chaos to natural disasters to the rebellion of the human heart...beloved, we live in a world that is troubled. it is a world that isn’t easy to live in by any means. this is a fallen world because all of humanity chose to turn away from the Lord and those who don’t know the Lord and aren’t following Him, are being obedient to the enemy - following the passions of the flesh. there is a reason that Paul told the Romans church, do not conform to the patterns of THIS WORLD. because this world is not our home.

with all of makes sense that our hearts would be troubled. I can see why we would tend to fear and to be worried. but, fear and turmoil and a troubled heart doesn’t have to be what you go to. && indeed it actually isn’t what you were designed to go to. that’s why when you carry fear it’s so heavy, bc you weren’t meant to carry it. Jesus says that His yoke is EASY && His burden is LIGHT. you weren’t handcrafted with fear.

in John 14:27, Jesus told His disciples, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.” He tells them this after letting them know that He will be sending His Spirit to be with them.

in John 16:33, Jesus tells them, “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

do you notice how Jesus tells them to not let their hearts be troubled even while also telling them that in this world they will have trouble.

how is this possible????

because Jesus has overcome the world!! anyone who calls upon His Name shall be saved and filled with His Spirit, who leads us in life and peace. we have a hope beyond the world! a peace greater than what the world could ever offer, because of the Lord. “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans‬ ‭15:13‬
